As soon as the black shadow of Corona is removed, people have started dancing to the tunes of Band-Baja. Marriages have started from Prabodhini Ekadashi. With this, the business related to weddings has flourished. There is neither any band-baja wala nor any marriage hall. From clothes to bullion shops, there is a lot of customers.
More than five thousand marriages are estimated to take place in the district in a span of 13 days from November 15 to December 13. For these 13 days, the business is expected to be more than Rs 300 crore. After almost two years, this is the first season of marriage on which there is no crisis of Corona. The Covid protocol has to be followed for caution, but there is no compulsion regarding the guests.
This is the reason why people are spending lavishly. Not only are you buying clothes and jewelry you like, you are also spending a lot of money on band-baja and marriage hall. In many marriage halls, two to three bookings are taken in 24 hours. Same is the case with tents and caterers. The last two years have been very heavy on these people due to Corona. There was little business, but this time it is expected that everything will be compensated.
There are about 170 marriage halls big and small in the city. All have been booked in advance. It can be estimated from the booking of tents and catering that there will be more than 400 weddings every day in this season. More than 5200 marriages are estimated to have taken place in a total of 13 days. In view of this, the market is ready. The shopkeepers have made various offers in front of the customers for new pattern jewellery, new range of bride and groom clothes, band-baja and photo-video shooting.
According to businessmen, a business of about Rs 300 crore is done in a normal day. During the Corona period, the figure was reduced to around Rs 150 crore. This time the restriction on the number of guests has ended. In such a situation, people are calling the guests according to the old capacity. Traders are expecting additional business from normal days this time.
