Mangaluru: For the current Yakshagana performance season, which began in late November and will go until the last week of May, the Dakshina Kannada administration has granted permission to use loudspeakers until midnight. The use of loudspeakers after 10:00 p.m. is prohibited by Supreme Court rules.
According to deputy commissioner Ravi Kumar MR, the district authorities approved Kateel Durgaparameshwari Prasadita Yakshagana Mandali’s request for an exemption on the use of loudspeakers after receiving her memorandum. If people ask for relaxations for Daivaradhane and other religious rites, the DC stated that “a suitable decision” will be made.
The Kateel Yakshagana troupe is by far the most well-known, and throughout its November–May season, its six teams perform in six coastal regions, from Kasargod in Kerala to Uttara Kannada in Karnataka. In six coastal regions from Kasargod in Kerala to Uttara Kannada in Karnataka, vakshagana performances often begin at 8 p.m. and go until 6 a.m. during the November-May season. Vakshagana performances often begin about 8 p.m. and go until 6 a.m. According to sources, the organisers have agreed to use the loudspeakers up until midnight and then considerably lower the volume until the show is over. Some occasions last for almost ten hours and go well past sunrise.
The deputy commissioner stated that permits for traditional sand extractors to excavate sand from coastal regulation zones (CRZ) will be issued in 2–3 days.
