Pune: According to the Infectious Diseases Prevention Act, it is mandatory for the Housing Society to inform the local administration if there are more citizens coming from outside for a birthday, reception, pooja or a function. The Department of Co-operation has appealed to avoid ceremonies involving 50 people to prevent corona infection.
Corona infection has not decreased in the city and district. Therefore, it is mandatory to follow the rules given by the district and municipal administration to prevent the outbreak. But, members of some housing societies are organizing birthdays, celebrations as well as other events. Therefore, it is seen that the rules of district and municipal administration are being violated. Seniors and children under the age of ten need to be extra careful. Also, the chairman or office bearers of the housing society do not know from which area or restricted area the persons coming for the ceremony are coming from. A person infected with a corona is more likely to infect other members of the society. Therefore, events and ceremonies should be avoided as much as possible, said the Department of Co-operation.
No crowds for the event
The concerned member should inform the Regional Office or the Gram Panchayat for a function in the Housing Society. The use of masks, sanitizers and social distillers is mandatory. Awareness has been raised among the members to prevent corona infection. Most societies and members are following the rules. Suhas Patwardhan, president of Pune District Co-operative Housing Society, has appealed to avoid events in the presence of more than 50 people.
According to the Infectious Diseases Prevention Act, all the rights belong to the Municipal Corporation and the District Administration. Currently the housing society does not have the authority to allow the ceremony. It is necessary to inform the local administration about holding a ceremony in the society. The threat of corona is not averted. Ceremonies, events should be avoided to prevent its infection. It is also mandatory to follow all the rules for domestic ceremonies.
