Alandi, 6th June 2023: In preparation for the upcoming departure ceremony of Shri Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj’s Palkhi Route, authorities have announced a temporary ban on the entry of industrial heavy vehicles and four-wheelers in Alandi from June 7 to 12. This announcement was made by Police Inspector Shahaji Pawar.

The palanquin of Shri Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj is scheduled to embark on its journey to Pandharpur on June 11. On June 12, it will continue its route to Pune. Devotees from all across Maharashtra, known as Warkaris, participate in this grand ceremony. To ensure smooth traffic flow and prevent congestion in Alandi during this time, the police have devised a traffic management plan. From June 7 to 12, heavy vehicles and four-wheelers will not be permitted to enter the area, except for essential service vehicles and the Dindi procession participants who will remain in Alandi throughout the Wari period.

Industrial and four-wheeler vehicles will be directed to an alternate route and halted at a distance of approximately six to seven kilometers from Alandi. The police have communicated the traffic arrangements to heavy vehicle operators in industrial areas, as well as those transporting workers and school students. Vehicles traveling from Pune to Alandi will be diverted via Bhosari through Magazine Chowk. Those coming from Moshi-Dehu will be stopped at the Dudulgaon checkpoint, while those coming from Chakan will be halted at Alandi Phata. Traffic from Vadgaon Ghenand-Shelpimpalgaon will be blocked at Koyali Phata, and vehicles from the Markal Industrial Area will be stopped at Charholi Bypass at Dhanore Phata. Similarly, vehicles from Chimbli Kelgaon will be halted at Chimbli Phata. However, vehicles associated with the pilgrims participating in the procession will be granted access.

Starting tomorrow, a temporary ban will be in effect, restricting heavy vehicles and four-wheelers from entering Alandi until Monday, to accommodate the Palkhi festival. Employees requiring passage out of Alandi for work purposes will be issued passes. These measures have been put in place to ensure the smooth execution of the event and to facilitate the safe and orderly movement of participants and visitors.
