NMC starts online system for permissions for Ganesh Mandals


Nagpur: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has taken a significant step towards simplifying the process for Ganesh Mandals during Ganeshotsav by starting an online system for obtaining various permissions. This initiative aims to streamline and reduce the hassles associated with the permit application process. Additionally, a one-stop solution called the “Ganesh Mandal Permit Facility Centre” has been established in all ten zone offices of the municipality.


Under the directives of NMC Commissioner and Administrator Dr. Abhijit Choudhary and guidance of Additional Commissioner Anchal Goyal, an easy-to-use online system has been put in place for Ganesh Mandals to obtain the necessary permissions. This move eliminates the need for mandals to go through a complex and time-consuming offline application process.

The establishment of Ganesh Mandal Permit Facility Centres in all ten zone offices of the Nagpur Municipal Corporation provides a single point of contact for mandals seeking permits. This streamlined approach aims to enhance convenience for organizers.

To ensure a smooth and efficient process, officers and employees from various departments, including the Nagpur Municipal Corporation, Police Department, Fire Department, and others, are actively involved at the Ganesh Mandal Permit Facility Centres. Their presence is geared towards serving citizens and providing guidance on the Ganeshotsav permit application process.

The officials stationed at these centres are readily available to assist citizens with the application process and address any difficulties they may encounter while using the online system. This personalized support aims to ensure that all Ganesh Mandals can easily navigate the new system and obtain the required permits.

The introduction of an online system and the establishment of Ganesh Mandal Permit Facility Centres by the Nagpur Municipal Corporation represent a significant step forward in simplifying the process for Ganesh Mandals during Ganeshotsav. This initiative is expected to enhance convenience, reduce paperwork, and facilitate a smoother experience for organizers, all while ensuring the necessary regulatory requirements are met.
