Secretary of Fortcha Icchapurti Raja Rupesh Surve said, 

The mandal was established by reformers from the Sanyukt Maharashtra Movement in 1956. It is one of the first sarvajanik ganesh mandal in the area of Fort near CSMT. One of its most unique features is that the mandal has many themes and installations for example 21 Ganpati's, World's Ganpati, Pandharpur, Shivling etc. In 2019, we have kept the theme for Rajashthan's Palace. The best part is that the carvings and painting, especially on the ceiling is painted by the painters while keeping the brushes in both their hands. The idol is always 9-feet as it is a very lucky number. Every year the idol structure is the same and just the seating of the idol changes. Last year we had a peacock's seat and this year the idol is seated on a chair with Lord Vishnu's carvings. 

Along with the celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi the mandal also donates to old age homes, orphanages and flood relief funds. Check out the video in Marathi to know more about it.
