According to a report released by the New Indian Express, only those with invites and passes would be permitted to join the procession.
All guests must adhere to Covid-appropriate behaviour, such as wearing facial masks and maintaining social distance.
According to the report, everyone in the march has been properly vaccinated and is being tested for Covid-19.
Security has been increased in and around the arena, according to City Police Commissioner Kamal Pant. “The Andhra Pradesh police squad will be a part of our march this year”, he added.
