Prayagraj Kumbh Mela 2019 has been placed in the Guinness World Records in three sectors. These include the largest traffic and crowd management plan, the biggest painting exercise of public sites under "paint my city" scheme and biggest sanitation and waste disposal mechanism.

A statement from the Government said on Sunday that a three-member team from Guinness World Records had visited the Prayagraj-- famous for the confluence of Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati rivers-- for this purpose. "Exercise at large scale was done before the team members for three days from February 28 to March 3. Around 503 shuttle buses were pressed into service in one go for the team on February 28 on the highway. The buses covered a stretch of 3.2km in the district.

Several people participated in painting exercise on March 1 and  10 thousand workers engaged in cleaning at Prayagraj Kumbh performing their duties altogether. The new record was created in view of the ongoing Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), a nation-wide campaign in India for the period 2014 to 2019 that aims at cleaning streets, roads, and other infrastructures in cities, towns, and rural areas.

Only a single bathing festival of Mahashivratri of the six main bathing festivals remains. Five bathing festivals of the Kumbh have concluded successfully with more than 32 crore pilgrims taking a holy dip, said the statement. _TP
