Mumbai is all set to welcome its beloved Ganpati Bappa on September 2. However, with just two weeks left for Ganesh Chaturthi, 1005 of the 2620 mandals across the city have been granted permission.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had started a new rule where mandals will have to apply online. Thereafter, the application will be sent across the traffic police department, fire brigades etc. and only after they receive a 'No Objection Certificate' (NOC) from all the authorities the permission will be granted to erect a mandal at the desired location.

Out of the total 2620 applications, 189 applications were rejected due to lack of documents and the others are still being processed. Due to technical glitches, the deadline for application was extended from August 19 to August 24. The civic authorities had started accepting the applications from the month of June. 

Notably, the Samanway Samiti had issued a code of conduct for the upcoming Ganesh Utsav which the mandals have to follow. The BMC had also issued a notice to all Ganpati mandals to avoid dancing on bridges as 29 bridges in Mumbai have been declared as extremely dangerous and requires urgent demolition.
