More than 10,000 sanitation workers will ensure cleanliness at the Magh Mela which will be held on January 2 next year.
To keep a tab on the location of these workers, the department will also utilise geo-sensing or RFID (radio frequency identification) devices.
” The department would set up 56 toilet complexes in and around the event’s premises and at least 150-160 toilets would be constructed in a single complex. A Mumbai-based agency would be installing the biometric attendance system, said a Magh Mela official.
For the first time, free Wi-Fi will be offered to devotees coming to take a holy dip in Sangam.
The mela advisory committee has sought suggestions and ideas from saints, professors of Allahabad University and representatives of various social/cultural and religious organisations to make Magh Mela operations smooth.
