With eight days to for Navratri, the BMC on Friday issued guidelines for the festive season while appealed to residents to strictly adhere to them in the view of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the circular issued ahead of Navratri and Durga Puja, the civic body said it will, and not the police, renew no objection certificates issued last year to sculptors and puja pandals after scrutiny. Police will only process fresh applications for pandals, it added. Also, permission will be given to set up temporary stalls for sale of idols.

The other guidelines included capping the height of the idol at four feet for mandals and two feet for home worship; no procession permitted for either arrival or visarjan of the idol and wherever possible, using online means and cable networks to broadcast ‘Devi Darshan’ and other events.

BMC has stressed on strict adherence of four rules by organisers – sanitisation of pandals, strict adherence to physical distancing norms, use of masks and maintaining a distance of at least 2 m between two persons.
