The ve­hi­cles that are to be used for im­mer­sion of Gan­pati idols will be checked by the city RTO (Re­gional Transport Office) to en­sure they are fit for the pur­pose. Only ve­hi­cles that con­form to the norms will be is­sued fit­ness cer­tifi­cates.

The man­dals have been asked to get their ve­hi­cles checked in time be­fore the im­mer­sion day.

From the 5th day of the fes­ti­val, a large num­ber of big idols from man­dals will be im­mersed, for which heavy ve­hi­cles are used.

“Man­dals make use of trucks, tem­pos and trail­ers for trans­port­ing the idol and the vol­un­teers. How­ever, there is a pos­si­bil­ity of a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent if the ve­hi­cle is not fit,” said a Vashi RTO of­fi­cial.

“Hence we have de­cided to check all such ve­hi­cles for their fit­ness,” he added.
