While briefing the media about the guidelines issued to avoid any kind of traffic on the eve, Dayananda said that the decision was taken as a large number of people including people from other states will also be taking part in the celebrations, especially around MG road, Church Street and other places.

He added that some underage individuals might also take part in parties and with having KYC details such situations can be avoided.
