Prizes For Mandals
Ganeshotsav mandals today are active not only during the days of festivities but throughout the year. These mandals are active in a variety of social activities. To encourage and aid these mandals, the trust gives away prizes, each worth one lakh rupees during festivities. These can be for creative decoration of the tableaux. Similarly prizes are given to those processions who conduct their affairs with discipline and which add to the beauty of the city. This kind of encouragement has led to a rise in the quality of the displays and the method in which the festival is being celebrated. Other organizations including the municipal corporation, the police and some of the important newspapers of Pune have taken a cue from the trust and have also started giving prizes to these mandals.
