CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu government has allowed cultural events/functions from November 25 with a maximum ceiling of 200 persons by following the Standard Operating Procedures. However, the government has clarified that all social/political/entertainment/academic and religious congregations will remain prohibited until further orders.

Recently, the government withdrew the order allowing religious congregations, all social/ political/ cultural/ academic and other functions with a maximum of 100 persons from November 16 in view of the festive season to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection.  

Now, representations have been received from various sections of the society to grant permission for conducting cultural events.  So, considering these requests and on account of the annual Music Festival
