2. For large gatherings of people in public places for any reason (including for exhibitions, circuses, fairs, political rallies, religious, socio-cultural events, protests and demonstrations, etc) where Police and MCGM permission is sought for the gathering/event, it will be the responsibility of the organizer of the Event to ensure the cleanliness of that area as well as all appurtenant areas. A Refundable Cleanliness Deposit will be taken from the Organiser, for the duration of the event. This Deposit will be refunded on the completion of the event and it is noted that the said public place has been restored back to a clean state.

(Note: In place of MCGM, the local Statutory Body such as MHADA, Port Trust, Railways, etc, will also be required to collect such a cleanliness deposit, for use of their land)
