Nuapada: In a bid to ensure that people stay indoors abiding by the lockdown guidelines, locals of Nuagaon village under Komna block in Nuapada district have taken a unique initiative setting an example for many others.
They have collectively decided to penalize local residents found stepping out of their houses violating the lockdown guidelines.
Sources said the villagers had recently held a meeting to discuss an effective way to combat the spread of the lethal coronavirus in the area. At the meeting, they unanimously decided that whichever person in the locality found roaming outside without a valid reason will be fined Rs 1000. The collected money will later be donated to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund (PMRF).
The locals have made posters of the rule and put it on every square of the village to make sure it is not missed by anyone in the area.
