Considering the same, the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation has issued guidelines for the celebration of Bakri Eid which include:

  • If possible, citizens should make symbolic sacrifices. 
  • The level of restrictions for Breaking the Chain dated 04/06/2021 will be applied and other restrictions will remain in place as per the instructions issued from time to time or thereafter. On the occasion of Bakri Eid, no relaxations will be made. 
  • Citizens should not gather or crowd at public places on the occasion of Bakri Eid.
  • It will be mandatory to comply with the rules prescribed by the authority, to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Also, if any further instructions are issued post this circular, and between the actual commencement of the festival, they will have to be complied with. 
  • The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation was earlier temporarily allowing community slaughterhouses in various parts of the city, but this year, considering the prevalence of coronavirus, no temporary slaughterhouses will be permitted.
