Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police on Monday launched a web-based solution for granting permission for marriage and funeral in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar during the ongoing state-wide lockdown.
Those who want to apply for license to organize marriage or funeral function can visit the link “Apply for Marriage/Funeral License” on the Commissionerate Police website – www.bhubaneswarcuttackpolice.gov.in.
The permission seeker can apply at least before 72 hours of the programme and fill up the required information, said a statement.
The Commissionerate Police will send the permission for marriage and funeral through an SMS and WhatsApp message. Also, invitees will get individual SMS that they can use as permission to commute from their place of stay to function venue.
Currently, the web-based system is applicable for marriage and funeral functions to be held in Bhubaneswar UPD jurisdiction only. The e-permission facility will be launched for Cuttack UPD shortly, the statement said.
In case any quires send message to WhatsApp No. 8144207100, it said.
The web-based solution has been developed by the Commissionerate Police in association with Oasys Tech Solution.
As per the lockdown guidelines issued by the Special Relief Commissioner, maximum of 50 persons can attend marriage programme and 20 persons for funeral.
