Since the celebrations are taking place after two years, several restrictions were removed by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.

To evaluate the preparations, CM Shinde and Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis had called a meeting on Thursday and come up with the following guidelines:

  • CCTV cameras have to be installed into the pandals in order to avoid any suspicious activity or theft.

  • Pandals are not permitted to be set next to high-tension electrical poles, as per the regulations.

  • The leaders of other social organisations and community associations are required to hold meetings in their communities, prior to the festival, in order to ensure communal peace and harmony during Ganesh Chaturthi.

  • Restriction on the height of Lord Ganesh idols was also removed.

  • However, BMC officials said households have been requested to cap it at two feet.
