Gangasagar Mela 2021 Do’s & Don’ts

Ganga Sagar Mela 2021 

General Guide (for each point) 

Ganga Sagar Mela 2021 has declared itself as “Eco Friendly”. Assist the administration to keep the environment of this fair clean. This fair is for you, me, all of us.  Keep him alive. Avoid using plastic at the fair. Don’t defecate everywhere. Use the permanent and mobile toilets provided by the administration at various places in the fair. Drink safe drinking water. Provided by the Public Health and Technical Department of the Government of West Bengal.  Purified drinking water is available. Collect free drinking water. Do not light fires in fairgrounds and other crowded places. It can be a big danger at any moment. It is a punishable offense to light fires in fairgrounds.  Take advantage of your money, belongings, clothes, bags, mobile, ATM card or other important G.  Be careful.  Don’t miss out on these things to strangers.  Leave your belongings in the custody of a volunteer or police officer with a volunteer badge while bathing. Do not be separated from your peers.  If you are with older people or children, keep them with you.  Put the phone number in the pocket of the shirt and hang the identity card around the neck.  Take a good look at the number of streets where you are.  If you have lost a friend or something in your corner, immediately go to the information center tower.  As a result of endless announcements, you will definitely find your loved ones or lost things.  Do not rush to the jetty.  Wait patiently in line.  Collaborate with volunteers and police and get on the vessel or launch in an orderly manner.  Keep in mind that vessel movement may be temporarily closed due to low tide.  Don’t get too excited, look at the LED screen in front of the information on when the next vessel will be available, and sit quietly and wait.  It is the responsibility of the administration to make everyone cross safely.  Collaborate with the administration and make your pilgrimage safe and successful.  At the request of the pilgrims, do not be unduly confused with the bus, vessel, or launch fare.  The state government will not pay more than the prescribed rent.  Vessel tickets are on sale at Kakdwip Railway Station and at the bus stand at Harvard Point.  The fare list is given at all the important places along the way.  Avoid strangers looking for opportunities along the way.  Always be careful.  This year, Hon’ble Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has announced life insurance of Rs 5 lakh for every benefactor who comes to this shrine on a holy day.  That is the ultimate goal of the West Bengal government to make your pilgrimage safe, easy, hassle-free, and successful in all respects.
