New Delhi: From today the celebration of the Ganesh festival has started across the country. On this day people establish the idol of Ganpati Bappa in the house and worship him for the whole 10 days. Lord Mangalmurti is immersed on the 10th day on Anant Chaturdashi. Keeping in mind the immersion of Bappa, the Delhi Pollution Control Committee has issued guidelines.

According to the guidelines issued by the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) regarding the immersion of idols of Lord Ganesha and Mata Durga, idol immersion will not be allowed in the Yamuna river. Doing so may attract a fine of up to Rs 50,000. It has been said on behalf of DPCC that artificial ponds will be made in different districts, where idols can be immersed. At the same time, only the use of idols made of natural clay will be allowed, and the use of PoP-made idols will be banned. Apart from this, if a person is found violating the rules, he can be jailed for 6 months and also have to pay a fine.

The DPCC has also directed the Delhi Police to ban the entry of vehicles carrying Plaster of Paris (POP) statues into the city. Municipal bodies have been asked to issue instructions to all the circle offices to take action against illegal idol-making.
