However, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has recently issued a notice to all the sarvajanik Ganesh Mandals that they should avoid crowding and dancing on bridges.

Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar stated that he has conducted a meeting with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Ganpati Mandal authorities and have informed them about the precautionary measures that are supposed to be taken. 

Notably, the BMC has further extended the deadline for online applications for making pandals. The earlier deadline was August 19, that has now been revised to August 24 till 5.30 pm. The BMC has made it mandatory that all sarvajanik Ganpati Mandals should have prior permissions to erect pandals which have to be obtained online through MCGM website by uploading required documents.
