Wedding halls in Mysuru come alive | Mysuru News – Times of India


MYSURU: Owners of wedding halls in Mysuru, who suffered a financial body blow due to the lockdown, are now doing brisk business with halls coming alive with plenty of bookings in the past three months.
Mysuru city has 133 kalyana mantapas and they were among the first casualties of the pandemic as weddings scheduled during the lockdown months were either cancelled or postponed.
But now, wedding hall owners, who once knocked on the door of the deputy commissioner’s office seeking more time to return the advance they received from customers, are back in business. Satyanarayan, president, Mysuru Kalyana Mantapa Owners Association, said they were at a loss when the entire industry came to standstill from March to June.
“We had a lot of bookings for April and May,” he said. “People who were working for us, left since we couldn’t pay them. We had no money to pay power bills or commercial tax imposed by Mysuru City Corporation. We asked the government to waive power bills and reduce commercial tax, but authorities refused. However, we have had good business in October and November. Bookings are full for December too.”
Wedding hall owners and managers say they are complying with Covid-19 precautionary guidelines and are also sensitizing guests and invitees to safe practices.
