The Municipal Corporation has started sanitising the cremation grounds in the city. To ensure that citizens don’t face any hassle in conducting the last rites of their loved ones, MC Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabharwal reviewed the arrangements.

Sabharwal said, “A special cell established by the district administration at the Civil Hospital is ensuring transportation arrangement and availability at a cremation ground for Covid victims. Also, all such cremation grounds are being sanitised by a MC team.”

“Nodal officer Swati Tiwana is coordinating with the other departments for arrangements like wood, LPG, transportation and security at the cremation grounds. Also, NGOs are being roped in for PPE kits, etc,” the MC Commissioner said.

He mentioned that more cremation grounds would be added for the cremation of Covid victims if needed.

As per the SOP, the Covid cremation management cell has been formed in the Lord Mahavir Civil Hospital, Ludhiana, which is functioning under the supervision of MC Joint Commissioner Swati Tiwana and anyone can contact on the cremation cell’s helpline numbers 9501500101, 7719712797 and 9501500102 for ensuring that the family of the deceased face no problem in performing the last rites.
