Jaipur, April 21 (IANS): Mobile DJs have been banned in Jaipur following the Karauli violence which was reported on April 2 when stones were thrown at a procession out to celebrate the start of the Hindu New Year and many shops and vehicles were emptied more late.
In accordance with orders, mobile DJs will not be allowed to participate in any gatherings, weddings or processions.
Jaipur Commissioner Anand Shrivastav said those who flout the orders will be dealt with strictly. Mobile DJs, especially those in vehicles with mounted electronic music systems, remain banned from performing any duties in the Jaipur district, he said. Action will be taken against anyone who defies the order under Article 188 of the IPC for disobeying a government order. Additionally, vehicles carrying mounted music systems will not be permitted under the Motor Vehicle Act. City police will also conduct a campaign against such vehicles, he added.
Also earlier, the Home Office set out terms and conditions to allow the use of DJs at religious and other events.
This order stated that “anyone requesting permission from DJs will be required to complete a form sharing details of the content they wish to stream. If the relevant authorities are satisfied, then only the content will be permitted to play,” the order reads.
