“Given that several of our sanggat are in need or langgar, we will continue to pack langgar in takeaway boxes tor you to take away. Howewer, instead of collection at the langgar hall, the takeaway langgar will now be served at the entry gate,” KDB president Sarbjit Singh in a statement.

“To ensure no bouncing or crowding at the langgar collection point, sanggat is advised to collect the langgar packs and immediately move on to consume the langgar at your home, office, or school. Do not hang around and crowd outside the Gurdwara.”

Langgar can be collected between the following three windows: 7am-9am, 11.30am-2.30pm, and 7pm-8pm.
