West Bengal 
Many states have imposed a ban on taking a holy dip in the Ganga river on Makar Sankranti due to the Covid surge, but in West Bengal, many devotees gathered together and took a holy dip in the Ganga. Many people can be seen at the river even after curfews.

While Locals performed 'Dev Doli' snan in Bhagirathi river in Uttarkashi on the occasion of Makar Sankranti.

People in Bihar took a holy dip in the Ganga at Gandhi Ghat in Patna. One local priest said, "On Makar Sankranti, a large number of people come here for a dip, but there is less number of devotees due to COVID this year."
