The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has taken several measures to ensure eco-friendly celebrations of the Ganesh Chaturthi festival. This includes banning Ganesh pandals from displaying flex banners or any display objects that are not eco-friendly and idols made of plaster of Paris.

A single window system has been set up in 63 sub-divisions across eight BBMP zones for the speedy approval of applications to install Ganesha idols in public places. The BBMP, Bengaluru Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM), police, and fire departments will be working together to oversee Ganesh idol installations and celebrations. Strict action will be taken by the police on any violation of the rules set by the BBMP.

Pandals installing idols should get permission from these single-window agencies by submitting the required document along with their applications. A nodal officer will head each center which will review the applications. The clearance will be issued after the police issue law and order clearance, while the BESCOM and fire department look into power and fire hazards. The centers will notify the places where big idols can be immersed.

In a meeting held by the BBMP chief commissioner Tushar Giri Nath, he stated that materials banned by BBMP will not be allowed in the celebrations “Pandals can use cloth or other eco-friendly materials to publicise festivities. Such displays should be put up on the day of celebration only near pandals where idols will be placed, and they should be removed after immersion.”
