A.P. Govt. allows wedding, number of guests limited to 20, Tahsildar’s permission is mandatory for marriages
As Coronavirus disease is increasing rapidly, the A.P government. took this step. Importantly they took this decision to allow how many people for marriage. Till now they used to take permission from the collector but now they gave this work to tahsildar, as the permissions are getting late and relatively, they issued a G.O. As Shravana Masam is going to start from July 21st, marriages are going to be held on a large scale.
A.P. Govt. took this decision keeping the situation in mind. Meanwhile tahsildar should only give permissions for marriages but not to any other functions. Government declared that only 20 members of both the bride and bridegroom’s family are allowed. They have to submit the details of the 20 people who will attend the marriage along with the marriage invitation, Aadhaar card corona reports along with the affidavit of 10/- non judicial stamp to the tahsildar for marriage permission.
If they don’t obey the order of the A.P govt. which was mentioned in the G.O then they are punishable according to National Disaster Management Act. In this way they are doing preparations keeping this in mind they are only giving permission at collector level. But only for marriages not for any other functions.
