As per the directive, the number of players cannot be more than 150 at an event and COVID-19 negative certificates have been made mandatory for players.
The number of spectators has also been restricted to 50 per cent of the gathering.
The Supreme Court (SC) in 2014 banned `Jallikattu` after a plea was filed by the Animal Welfare Board of India and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) but the state government insisted that Jallikattu was a crucial part of its culture and identity.
The ban was later lifted in January 2017 with an amendment to the law after massive protests in Chennai.
