2022 December, 3 : With the consonance of a recent press release, the police department of Mumbai has banned gatherings of five or more than five people in the whole city from today onwards. But as per the restrictions stated, there is no obligation to pa
Mumbai Police department strikes over headlines every now and then regarding the bans and prohibition of certain things. However, only a handful of people are aware that this type of news is not new. Such orders and bans & restrictions are renewed every 15 days. Police rigged out in a press release conducted on 2 December asserted that gathering of five or more than five people is now prohibited till the next month of January 2.
Even the use of loudspeakers is not permitted till the same date, January 2.
Despite the Police conducting a press conference regarding the one month curfew, a lot of people took over Twitter and other social media platforms regarding this news. Confirming whether the news is true or just a facade.
When asked again by the Mumbai Police, the media found out that this order is just renewed as it happens every 15 days. And it has been renewed till the 17 th of December.
So the order after 17 th of December would be the issue of later time. No order was found which states that there is a one month curfew.
Now it has been confirmed that the Jamao Bandi would only be from December 3 to December 17. Under this act, gathering of more than five people is strictly prohibited. These are said to be the routine orders which are followed by the Mumbai Police Department throughout the year. Even on October 25, the same kind of confusion arose as the order copy was leaked and was misinterpreted. This act comes under the Maharashtra Police act issued under section 37.
This act doesn’t have any significant effect on anything. And the police also avoid taking any action unless any gathering opens on to a law and order situation.
