Section 144 has been imposed in Ghaziabad and Gautam Budh Nagar (Noida) due to the growing cases of Covid-19, upcoming festivals, and panchayat elections in the district. 

In Ghaziabad, section 144 has been implemented till 10th May, and the prohibitory orders have been imposed in Noida till 30th April. People will now have to take the permission of the administration to do any kind of religious, political, and cultural programmes. More than 100 people will not be able to gather in these programmes. 

The police administration has been asked to take stringent action against those who do not wear masks.

The restrictions have been imposed in view of the upcoming festivals such as Holi, Shab-e-Baraat, Good Friday, Navratri, Ambedkar Jayanti, Ram Navami, Mahavir Jayanti, Hanuman Jayanti, etc.

No shopkeeper will sell the goods without masks and the buyer will also be required to put on masks.

“Any violation of the restrictive orders under CrPC section 144 or any of its sub-sections mentioned would lead to prosecution of offenders under IPC section 188,” the order warned.
