Apart from this, arrangements will be made for separate routes for dead bodies and dead bodies to reach the cremation site, special places for religious rituals etc. to be performed before cremation, dead body baths etc. A cremation ground will be built above the high flood zone, there will be a ramp to reach it.
There will be separate seating for VIPs on the terrace, above the highest point of the flood. The people who come for the cremation used to face a lot of trouble due to the haphazardly kept wood near the ghat. Now there will be a systematic plaza for wood sellers, where wood can also be stored.
