Authorities on Wednesday decided that all wedding halls that do not provide parking facilities to guests would be shut down in Karachi, Express News reported.

The decision was taken during a meeting held between wedding hall owners and Karachi Police chief Dr Amir Sheikh.

It was agreed that all wedding ceremonies would end by midnight.

Moreover, lights at the events would be turned off by 11:30pm, after which announcements would be made to end the event.

During the huddle, a consensus was evolved that firecrackers, fireworks or aerial firing would not be allowed during wedding proceedings.

Furthermore, all sensitive areas of wedding halls will have cameras installed for monitoring.

To curb traffic jams in the areas near wedding ceremonies, authorities will form committees in different parts of the city under the supervision of the traffic wardens and representatives of the wedding hall owners.

These committees will spearhead the management of traffic of these establishments. While each wedding hall owner must employ at least three security personnel to ensure security arrangements.
