South Delhi Municipal Corporation plans to create temporary human funeral pyre platforms on the project site meant for the first municipal dog crematorium of the city in Dwarka Sector -29, amid a rise in Covid-19 deaths.

According to the Times of India, the crematorium site, which is spread over 3.5 acres, has not been in operation yet. Around six months ago, the civic body approved the cremation rates for this upcoming animal crematorium. SDMC standing committee had approved the establishment of a small animal crematorium on PPP mode.

“With around 700 bodies already being cremated, we have to prepare for 1,000 bodies a day in advance to avoid chaos. We have also identified sites along the Yamuna to increase the capacity,” an official told TOI.

Some Parks in the city are also being used as crematoriums.

On Tuesday, Delhi recorded 696 Covid protocol funerals.
