West Bengal: Mamata Banerjee allows 100 pc occupancy in cinema halls

Addressing to the inauguration event of the 26th edition of the Kolkata International Film Festival 2021 via video conference on Friday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that she has allowed 100 percent occupancy in cinema halls in the state but asserted following precautionary measures in the view of Covid-19.

"Due to the pandemic, only 50 percent occupancy in cinema halls is allowed. Now I am allowing 100 percent occupancy but proper care needs to be taken," she said.

Actor Shahrukh Khan also participated in the event virtually. The Kolkata Film Festival, which was started in the year 1995, is being organized virtually in the view of Covid-19 pandemic.

Recently, the Tamil Nadu government has also issued a similar notification to increase the occupancy in cinemas, theatres, and multiplexes to 100 percent capacity.

However, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla has written to Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary stating that the state government's move is the dilution of the Ministry of Home Affair's order.
