The Meghalaya government on Monday decided to allow marriage ceremonies in places of worship under strict safety protocols.

“During a review meeting chaired by chief minister Conrad Sangma, we discussed this issue and decided that marriages would be allowed to be solemnised in places of worship,” said deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong.

“Those parties wanting to get permission should submit their application to the concerned deputy commissioner to acquire permission in this regard. But strict protocols should be followed,” he added.

Tynsong said the government has received several petitions from various religious organisations to allow marriages to be solemnised in religious places. The government, which had initially decided to re-open places of worship from June 14, later kept it on hold in the wake of rise in COVID cases.
