Illegal pandals that crop up in the city during festive seasons like Durga Puja, Ganesh Puja and Ram Navami disrupt the smooth flow of traffic and sometimes cause traffic jams. Anyone constructing arch or pandal on the road has to take permission from city police and NMC. But a lot of illegal pandals flock Nagpur city during festival and cause congestion on the roads. The city police is blaming NMC for not doing their work properly. The blame game is causing serious problems to people whose houses are situated near the arches or pandal as there is no smooth flow of traffic.
