The Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) has decided to ban Pan/Gutkha in marriage and funeral functions to stop people from spitting inside the function hall amid the coronavirus scare. A maximum of 100 guests will be allowed for a marriage function, while only 50 people are allowed to attend a funeral in Cuttack. For either of the two gatherings, the organiser will have to take permission from the Local Police Station or the Cuttack Municipal Corporation.
