For the people of Delhi, plans for the weekend may be interrupted by the massive traffic jams in the national capital which is expected to be witnessed tomorrow due to thousands of wedding ceremonies that will pile on with the usual weekend rush. An approximately 14,000 weddings are lined up for Saturday. Anil Thadani of the popular JEA band said they were swamped with bookings tomorrow. He further added that people started making bookings almost 10 months in advance for Saturday. However, there will be a heavy deployment of traffic personnel across the city and the Delhi traffic police is preparing to face the predicted traffic that might choke the roads. They will deploy extra personnel at certain parts of Delhi that would include Chhattarpur, Mehrauli, and Delhi-Gurgaon road where several banquet halls and farmhouses are located.

Garima Bhatnagar, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) told PTI they will be seeking the help of the local police in traffic management who will be further assisting the traffic police in issuing challans and ensuring that vehicles are parked properly. The traffic police officials have also spoken to banquet hall and farmhouse owners and asked them to deploy their staff to ensure that vehicles were not blocking the traffic.

However, it is advisable for the Delhiites to cut down any unnecessary plans of going out and avoid getting out as chances of getting stuck in a traffic jam are high. While bands are not allowed to play after 10 pm as per rules set by Municipal Corporation of Delhi, this rule in the past has been flouted often.
