During the Shraadh period of 15 days, the sales of the application forms had gone down, but after Navratris began, the sales picked up, as the nine-day festival is considered as auspicious, to start new things. The sales are expected to go high in the last 4-5 days as people, who are still left to fill the forms, will make a beeline rush at the counters at the authority's headquarters.
