Navaratri procession from Oct 6

Vehicles using loudspeakers will not be allowed during the procession taken out in connection with the Navaratri Mahotsavam from October 6 to 21.

This was decided at a meeting chaired by Minister for Tourism Kadakampally Surendran here on Thursday.

The District Collector and the District Police Chief will coordinate the arrangements.

The Minister said steps should be taken to control the crowds at Padmanabhapuram Palace, where the ritual of handing over of the sword of the kings of erstwhile Travancore would be held. Only those connected with the ritual should be allowed in.

Accommodation and food should be provided to the Devaswom police personnel from Tamil Nadu.

Maintenance of roads through which the procession passes should be taken up in a time-bound manner.
