Asia’s largest cattle mandi ready to kick off with corona SOPs

Asia’s largest cattle mandi is back in business, which is quite evident, considering the large crowds that it attracts around this time of the year. However, keeping in mind the ongoing Covid-19 situation, this year won’t be different than the previous one, but since it’s a religious obligation, people are requested to follow SOPs as instructed by the government vigilantly and visit us with the convenience of others and of themselves.
The mandi spreads over around 900 acres of land with the market divided into 48 blocks that are further segmented into VVIP, VIP and general category blocks. The setting up of mandi can be likened to the building of a temporary town for a month, which serves up to a million people, and provides around 1 lac citizens employment opportunities in various ways.
Moreover, since this is by far, Asia largest cattle festival with over 5 lac animals, this can be a great opportunity for attracting tourism. Thus, the cattle media team actively encourages new and experienced v-loggers and digital media channel owners to visit and document the event as per their experiences.
The timings for the market will be determined by the directed authorities of NCOC on basis of convenience and safety of the residents. Lastly, since this year isn’t the same with regards to the pandemic, we urge people to maintain the sops and be mindful of the fact that this year they should focus only on our religious duties and refrain from taking part in unnecessary festivities.
