The portal will have a portrait of Shri Ram Lalla Virajman before which the virtual lamps will be lit. The portal will have a facility to pick up the lamp stand of one”s choice, steel-coloured, brass-coloured or any other.

After the lamps are lit, based on the details of the devotees, a ”thank you” digital letter from the chief minister, carrying the picture of Ram Lalla, will be issued. The web portal will be up before the main event on November 13.

While issuing instructions to the Ayodhya Deepotsav this time grander, Adityanath clarified that there should be no breach of COVID-19 protocol.
