In a precautionary measure, the Noida police have enforced CrPC section 144 in Uttar Pradesh’s Noida and Greater Noida. This move aims to restrict unlawful assembly of five or more people and unauthorised public events, including religious and political processions. The decision to enforce these restrictions comes in view of the upcoming Ganesh Chaturthi, Moto GP, and the UP International Trade Show, which are expected to draw large crowds.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (law and order) Hridesh Katheria explained the rationale behind the decision, saying, “Vishwakarma Puja is to be celebrated on September 17 while the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated on September 19. Apart from this, the International Trade Show at Expo Mart is scheduled from September 21 to 25, and the MotoGP Bharat at Buddha International Circuit, Greater Noida, is scheduled from September 22 to 24.”

Katheria further elaborated, “Apart from this, various programs like competitive examinations are proposed to be held in Gautam Buddh Nagar, and a ‘Rail Roko’ campaign by farmers may also take place, besides protests by various organizations from time to time.”

Restrictions As Per The Order

The following restrictions have been imposed as per the order:

Restriction Details
No Processions No person shall, without the prior permission of the commissioner of police, additional commissioner of police, and deputy commissioners of police, take out any kind of procession of five or more persons.
No Group Formation No person is allowed to form a group of five or more persons in a public place, nor join some group.
Drones Prohibited Operation of private drones will be completely prohibited in a one-kilometer radius above and around government offices.

Essential Services Exemption Vehicles carrying goods marked under essential services like milk, vegetables, and medicines will be allowed. “This rule can be relaxed as per requirement in programs permitted by the government,” the order read.

These restrictions have been put in place to ensure the safety and security of residents and visitors during these events. The authorities are concerned about the possibility of anti-social elements disrupting the peace, which necessitates such measures.

It is important for the public to be aware of these restrictions and cooperate with the law enforcement agencies to ensure a smooth and incident-free celebration of festivals and events in Noida and Greater Noida.

As the dates of these events draw closer, residents and visitors should stay informed about any updates or changes to these restrictions to avoid any inconveniences. The Noida police will be closely monitoring the situation to maintain order and safety.
