Like last year, this year too the state government has put some restrictions on celebrating Ganeshutsav. The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation’s Mayor Usha Dhore and Commissioner Rajesh Patil informed that citizens should follow all Covid19 protocols and celebrate the Ganesh Utsav in an eco-friendly manner. Below are some guidelines issued by the civic authorities.

1. Use Shadu mati (clay), paper mache or easy dissolving material while making your idol. Avoid buying idols made from Plaster of Paris (PoP) as they dont get easily dissolved.

2. Home Ganpati idols should not be more than 2 feet height, while Ganesh mandals should not use idols which are beyond 4 feet height.
