Earlier on Dussehra, the effigy of Ravana was 220 feet. However, due to the shortening of the ground, now its height had to be reduced to 125 feet. Managers say that this decision was taken for the safety of the people coming to see Ravana Dahan. At the same time, the administration has also deployed PCR, fire brigade, and ambulance for Ravana combustion.
