The Exhibition Society in a press release informed that all stakeholders were keen to have the exhibition as usual. However, given the health threat, it was decided to conduct the Numaish-2021 at a later date, informed Society Joint secretary informed K Janaki Ram.
The Society will obtain guidelines from the public health experts and appropriate government bodies on how this mammoth festival can be conducted and what all the safety precautions are to be taken.
Only when they are clear on these matters and get the approval from appropriate authorities can the Society announce the date and schedule of Numaish, said Janaki Ram.
