Recently, while hearing this case, the Calcutta High Court had said that the government cannot provide money in this way for entertainment. 25% of this fund should be invested in the program to enhance friendly relations between police and people. And masks and sanitizers should be purchased for the rest of the money. To collect this amount, the Pandal organizers will have to provide the spending bill. With this, the court also banned the entry of common people in the pandals. In view of the condition of Corona virus, only the organizers are allowed to stay in the pandals.
