Jaipur Commissionerate allows EEMA to issue night passes during Night Curfew
This timely move has come as a boon for the industry in the city.
The Rajasthan government had announced to impose a night curfew starting from December 1st in 13 districts to keep a check on the increasing Covid 19 cases. The decision came as a disappointment to the event agencies which were already in process of executing events in the state.
Entertainment and Event Management Association (EEMA) reached out to the government to secure night passes for its members and fraternity for smooth commute and transit during night curfew while organizing events. Siddhartha Chaturvedi, General Secretary, EEMA, said, "Rajasthan government had announced a night curfew to counter the recent spike in the Covid cases. This decision came in at a very critical time for our experiential industry as it mostly depends on weddings here and some big wedding dates to begin the season were just round the corner.”
It was immediately observed that there will be a lot of confusion in clients as well as the fraternity as to how they will manage transit between venues at the time of Curfew. While the government had already announced that the curfew won't be applicable for the 100 invited guests for the wedding, there is no clarity on the crew movement and transit.
Amit Dhokha, Director, Chandra Weddings and Siddhartha Chaturvedi contacted the Commissioner of Jaipur to bring out a solution as over 3000 weddings happening in Jaipur on the 25th of November itself were on stake, followed by a series of auspicious dates.
To avoid the panic the Anand Shrivastava, Commissioner, Jaipur Police immediately agreed to the proposal of validating EEMA as the body to issue night passes to its members and fraternity.
EEMA is the only association and industry body which has been given this mandate. Since then, hundreds of passes have been issued to the association’s member agencies and partners for smooth transit and operations to avoid chaos and confusion as a lot of clients were contemplating canceling the wedding if the crew movement was not clear.
This timely move has come as a boon for the industry in the city last week and the association is thankful to the Commissioner, Jaipur Police for helping with this timely solution.
