New Delhi, Aug 17: Anna Hazare is likely to be granted permission for holding his indefinite fast in Ramlila Maidan but with conditions that there will be no fast-unto-death and no use of loudspeakers beyond 10 pm.

Sources privy to the developments said indications of granting permission to hold the protest in Ramlila Maidan has already been given to Team Anna.

However, the government has suggested that they should be no demand for fast-unto-death and it will depute a team of doctors which will continuously conduct medical examinations, sources said.

While there is no restriction on number of protesters or vehicles, the government has conveyed that no loudspeakers will be allowed beyond 10 pm.

The choice of Ramlila Maidan as an alternative venue was taken as it was bigger than the Jai Prakash Narain Park where Hazare proposed to sit on an indefinite fast.
