The evening aarti has been started on Tuesday by the institution of Dawn-e-Banaras at Assi Ghat in Kashi. The priests and the local people started protesting about this. They allege that when Aarti is already happening, why was the new one started. On Thursday, DM Kaushal Raj Sharma intervened in the whole case, saying that the public ghats along the banks of the Ganges river are permanent public property. It is owned by the state government. Municipal corporation has been directed for registration of all the artis.
The Municipal Corporation is responsible for managing and maintaining the Ghats.
DM Kaushal Raj Sharma told that sometimes it is seen that some people dispute these ghats regarding Aarti. Some people start a new aarti. In this regard, the Municipal Corporation should make a clear arrangement that all the Artis on the Ghats should be registered by the Municipal Corporation. The allocation of space to them should also be done by the Municipal Corporation for one year and it should be renewed every year.
No Aarti will be on the ghats without permission
Along with this, it should also be clarified that no future aarti should be performed by any private person or institution at any ghat without the permission of the Municipal Corporation.

After completing the necessary investigation of LIU, a decision should be taken on the renewal of those who are registered.
Also nominate a Nodal Officer for Ghats under Municipal Corporation
