State new circular says buildings do not need permission from police for events

Housing societies won’t need police permission anymore to host programmes like a funfair, wedding reception or a dandiya event on their premises.

However, the local police station will have to be intimated if the organizers play music or if the streets outside the housing society are used for parking arrangements. “Permission to use loudspeakers will be required from the local police station under the noise pollution rules. But earlier approvals were required to hold the event, which has been done away it,” said an official.

“The idea was to make it hassle free for societies to host such programmes and since the society organizes the programmes themselves, there won’t be any requirement of additional permission from any authority,” he added.
The circular that was issued by the Maharashtra home department in March made it easy for housing societies to have functions, even for Ganeshotsav celebrations extra permission were not required. However, the official clarified that approvals will be required for hosting ‘dandiya’ nights on public grounds, where a crowd was expected and tickets were sold.
