Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samithi is working since the last 32 years to facilitate the smooth conduct of the 10 days of Ganesh festival in Bhagyanagar (Hyderabad). The number of people organizing public celebration of Ganesh festival has gone up significantly over the last 32 years. Starting with just 1500 pandals in 1980 there are close to 50,000 pandals dotting the city during Ganesh Utsav during 2011

Ganesh Utsav Samithi has been playing an anchor role in Organising the smooth conduct of the festival through helping the organizers leverage the support provided by the government by co-ordinating the work of 17 different government departments. The organization also plays the most important role in facilitating the immersion of the Ganesha idols on the final day across multiple places in the city.  It is estimated that more than 3 million people participate in the immersion procession on the 10th day of the festival.

The organization and its leadership over the last three decades has been trying to promote the nationalistic fervor coupled with spiritual awakening among Indians as envisaged by the great patriot Shri Balagangadhar Tilak. The vibrancy of Indian culture is also displayed in the multiple hues of Ganesha during these 10 days. As a part of continuing tradition, Bhagyanagar Ganesh utsav Samithi encourages discussion on a topic of national relevance during this festival period.
