In view of the rising Covid-19 cases in the city, the BMC has once again decided to re-impose certain rules from the early days of the pandemic and tighten others by acting against those flouting it. It has gone back to sealing of buildings and floors, stamping of asymptomatic patients, tracking over a dozen high-risk contacts of those found positive and impose stringent fines on those who don’t wear face masks.
In case of weddings, legal action is being taken against the organizers, parents of the bride and groom as well as the venue management, officials said in case they flout the 50 person rule. To monitor places of worship, women marshals will be deployed along with male ones.

A tweet put out from its handle @mybmc says, “Responsible ‘Pawri’ Mode: ON!. If COVID norms are not practised at social gatherings, due action will be taken against the attendees, organisers and management. Let’s not put down our guards, Mumbai – let’s beat the virus before we start the party! #MissionZero #NaToCorona.”
The ‘pawri’ trend went via after a clip shared by a Pakistani social media influencer in which she can be seen partying with her friends andsays, “Yeh humari car hai, yeh hum hai or yeh humari pawri ho rahi hai.” (This is our car, this is us and we are partying.)
