Nagpur: December month is a busy month for almost all lawns, banquet halls, and hotels, especially those located outside the city limits.
The latest version of the coronavirus, Omicron, has not yet proven to be a deterrent at all. One hotel owner has said that so far there have been no cancellations at all and the number of guests allowed is only on paper. Around 300-400 guests are bound to attend in a span of 3 hours. If we do not agree, then the customer will take his own business to another hotel.
A lawn owner who owns a property near Koradi Ke Road has said that In rural areas the number of people attending the wedding is not strictly monitored, This is why customers prefer to book with us, as it is not really possible to cut down on the number of guests.
Hosting Wedding Receptions
The second wave of the virus, which hit Amravati and Nagpur hardest in the region, has led to the cancellation of some wedding receptions. These cancellations have also led to a heated argument between the caterers and the guests over the refund of advance deposits. Some hotel owners had already rolled out the advances received for other dues as well and did not refund the amount.
But now all that is behind them. All the pending marriages are being concluded and even the long-pending receptions are being held. The owner of a banquet hall outside this city limits has also said that in a few days I am hosting 2 wedding receptions, one on the lawn and the other inside the banquet. There are many people who got married even during the second wave of this pandemic in the presence of only a few relatives and are now giving a reception for all.
The owners of these lawns worry that the government could step in if the Omicron virus turns out to be a more dangerous version. A hotel owner who was vehemently opposed to the restrictions said, The favorite tool of the Government of Maharashtra is the lockdown itself. Many bureaucrats hardly find painful pleasure in doing so. If there is another lockdown, then more than half of our industry will be destroyed.
