Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel has lifted the limitations on the height of Ganesh idols that may be erected in public and private locations throughout the state for the upcoming Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations.
Owing to Covid-19 pandemic, the height of the Ganesh idol was fixed during Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations in 2021 at public places and within private places.
The height limit for setting up Ganesh idols was fixed upto four feet at public places and two feet within private places.
As all the restrictions related to Covid-19 are no longer in force after March 31, 2022, the Chief Minister has decided that there will be no restrictions imposed over the height of Ganesh idols in public places or at homes during upcoming Ganesh Chartuthi celebrations in Gujarat.
The Central Pollution Control Board’s regulations regarding the creation of the Ganesha idol and its “visarjan” (idol immersion) will be upheld.
