Warangal: Complementing its efforts for the peaceful conduct of Ganesh Chaturthi festival, the Warangal Police Commissionerate has also got down to geotag all Ganesh pandals in the city for their effective monitoring during the upcoming nimajjanam (immersion). According to police, there are 6,182 Ganesh pandals in the Commissionerate limits. The police, who made elaborate arrangements for the festival, want to know about exact location of the pandals so that to enable its officials to inspect and take measures for the fool proof conduct of the nimajjanam. So far, the police had geotagged 4,651 idols and the rest will be done in a day or two, it's learnt.

"Geotagging of idols is to ensure hassle-free immersion. The photos of pandals and the information about the organisers would be of immense help to the police in tackling any untoward incidents," Commissioner of Police V Ravinder said. As of now, the

Blue Colts and Patro Car personnel are keeping a close surveillance on all Ganesh pandals, he added.

He said that with the help of Google map, the police can guide the pandal organisers to reach the nimajjanam sites.

He said that for the first time the registration of Ganesh idols' installation was made online. It helped the organisers to register their pandals without approaching the police, he said.
