Sample Letter to Collector for Marriage Permit during Lockdown

The places where wedding ceremonies are being conducted during the COVID-19 lockdown are high-risk places where the transmission of the coronavirus can happen very fast. This is simply because the number of people gathered at one place will be more. People will be merrymaking and will most probably avoid social distancing norms.

Hence, the government has made strict rules to combat the risk. Prior permission has to be obtained from local police and collectors before the marriage ceremony is conducted. Social distancing regulations have to be obeyed. People should wear masks, use sanitizers and keep their distance from each other.

Here is an example of the application letter that you can refer to and write to the Collector for obtaining the permission. Make necessary changes in the letter as required.
