New Delhi: As India is battling with the second wave of COVID-19, the crematoria are overburdened and people are having to wait for days to have funerals, owing to the rampant increase in deaths.

In Delhi, new pyre platforms are being added across to increase the capacity of crematorium sites as people are currently scrambling to make space for Covid-protocol funerals.

In NCR, due to lack of space, some parking lots are used for funerals.

As per reports, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation is planning to create a temporary human pyre platform at a project site meant to be the city’s first dog crematorium.

A corporation official informed, “Temporary pyre platforms will be developed to cater to additional bodies. We are witnessing an increase of over 15-20 percent in cremations daily.”

The crematorium site which is currently not operational was approved by the civic body six months ago.

The report said in Delhi around 700 bodies is already being cremated in a day and now they are preparing to cremate 1,000 bodies a day in advance to avoid chaos.

The report further added that they have identified sites along the Yamuna to increase the capacity.
