The BMC has also told the police to stop crowds from gathering in public places. Though devotees are allowed to perform Chhath Puja in artificial ponds, strict instructions have also been issued regarding this.

The Chhath festival dedicated to the Sun God will be celebrated on Friday and Saturday.
