New Delhi : Big news has come out from the capital Delhi regarding Durga Puja 2021. Here the idol of the mother will not be immersed in public places. The Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) has issued an order regarding this. DPCC has said that Durga idol immersion is not allowed in any public place in Delhi.
People will have to immerse themselves in buckets or containers at home. Before Durga Puja festival, Delhi Pollution Control Committee has banned idol immersion in any reservoir.
The DPCC asked the people of the capital to immerse idols in buckets or containers at their homes. The committee said that the pollution caused in rivers and lakes due to idol immersion is a matter of concern.
50 thousand rupees fine
In the order of DPCC, the general public and the worship committee have been asked to remove the worship material like flowers, decoration items etc. before the idol immersion.
Give it to the people who are collecting waste from house to house so that the environment remains safe. Failure to do so will result in a fine of Rs 50,000.
The pollution control body said that studies on degradation of water quality due to idol immersion show that it leads to deterioration in quality with respect to water transportability, biochemical oxygen demand and heavy metal concentration.
The Delhi Pollution Control Committee has said that instead of making idols from plaster of paris, natural materials like traditional clay should be used.
He said that due to the chemical dyes and paints applied on the idols made of POP, there is a very harmful effect on the life of aquatic organisms.
The DPCC said that only water soluble and non-toxic natural dyes should be used for coloring the idols.
Along with these instructions, the DPCC has also asked the agencies concerned to submit a report on the action taken against the violators on Friday.
