The Commissioner has asked the organisers to obtain 'No Objection Certificate' from the authorities concerned.

Besides, the police have asked the management to take all precautionary measures to maintain public order and not to create a nuisance to individuals and people at large, due to the playing of loud music. The police have warned of legal action against the organisers and the people, who create a nuisance to the people during the night of December 31.
