We have pilgrims coming from differ-4 Ent parts of the country, and some use regional languages other than Hindi or English, so we have taken this initiative to give advisories and guidelines to them in their own language,” said R Rajesh Ku- mar state health secretary.

The languages in which the information will be circulated include Marathi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, and Oriya among others.

“Medical screening for those above the age of 55 years is compulsory, while those having any kind of comorbid- ? ivies should consult their doc- tors and read the health advise sorry carefully before embark in on the yatra,” Kumar added.
