Bhubaneswar, June 3 (Local Wire): The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has now allowed opening of parks in Bhubaneswar with immediate effect in the light of removal of earlier curbs.
In a notification issued by the government today, it has allowed all public parks coming under the jurisdiction and authority of BMC, Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL).
“In view of the relaxation made by government order and in suppression of all previous orders all the public parks of BMC, BDA and BSCL within the jurisdiction of BMC will be opened in all days (except Saturdays and Sunday of June 2020) from 5am to 10am in the morning and 4pm to 6pm in the evening,” the notification said.
The civic body however has put a condition that in the morning hours from 5am to 7am only elderly people will be allowed.
The elderly otherwise will not be allowed inside the parks beyond the allotted time, BMC said. The order has come to effect from today itself.
