Due to two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ganeshotsav was celebrated simply. Public Ganesh Mandals were banned from making large statues. Citizens were also urged to celebrate the festival at home without going out. Therefore, the people of Pune celebrated the festival with restraint.


Accordingly, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has set up a good arrangement for Ganesh’s immersion in the entire city. These included iron tanks in each area, as well as rotating immersion troughs.


As the corona has come under control, this year Ganeshotsav is being celebrated without restrictions. PMC has made arrangements at 303 places for immersion. So 191 idol collection centres, 280 Nirmalya collection centres, and 150 moving wells have been arranged.
