Though the Shravani Mela is a religious event held annually, but the truth is that this fair runs the economy of not only Deoghar but the entire Santal Pargana division. The economic and commercial activity of the region has come to a standstill due to the temple being closed due to the Corona lockdown continuing for two months.
Actually, the decision to organize the Shravani Mela is with the Shrine Board. Whose President is the Chief Minister of the state. In such a situation, the Deoghar district administration has sent a proposal to the government through the Commissioner of Santal Parganas for organizing the fair. Idh district commissioner cum temple administration Nancy Sahai said that the Shrine Board is also awaiting instructions from the Ministry of Home Affairs regarding the organization of the fair. Let us tell you that due to the country-wide lockdown issued from March 24, the economy has suffered a huge loss in the temple. In such a situation, the shopkeepers nearby are facing huge losses along with the priests selling flowers in the temple.
