Not sure if there is a restriction on paying on the spot, but there is a restriction on the number of people allowed in a day. I believe it is 2000 per day, not sure though. My source of information is this

Better give this a thorough check by calling up their office, details of which are in the contact section of my earlier link.

I am tentative, because while I want to visit Kaas for sure, I am not sure if I shall be free on the proposed dates.

I suggest someone who knows the authorities and the procedures be appointed a coordinator/facilitator so the entry can be procured in advance on the proposed day. We can pay up our individual share to the facilitator at the venue/during the meet.

I've never been to Kaas and some reason or another kept me away from the last 2 trips.

Count me (plus family) in if the trip is on a weekend or public holiday! I think 2nd Oct will be a good date as its a Tuesday and not many people will be out on a day long trip.

Just came across an old news (4th July 2012) in DNA news daily:

Kaas to bloom for only 2,000 tourists daily - Pune - DNA

Plan accordingly ..

As per the recent updates the Flower Blooming Season will start in the first week of September hence I suggest we reschedule the dates. Please suggest convenient dates.

The website for bookings is up http://www.kas.ind.in/

cheers

Looking at the opening post, I was wondering if it would be too late. Wouldn't 8-9 or 15-16 Sep be more suited?

Then the meet should be in Sept only.
Sunday on 1st/8th/15th/22nd/29th sept.

22nd and 29th sept ruled out due to Ganesh festival,
1st sept ruled out.
Only 8th and 15th sept are possible dates.
8th sept is too early.

So, finally its 15th Sept only.

I am not sure how many including me will be able to reschedule the date.

Correction: 1st/8th/15th/22nd/29th sept are Saturdays.

So, finally 9th and 16th Sept are only real options.

Hello All,

Are Mumbai T-BHPians joining the Annual Drive to Kaas?

Shall we have a poll of how many Mumbai T-BHPians are coming to this drive / meet?

Thanks,

How many of us will be busy with Ganesh Visarjan on the Anant Chaturdashi (10th day for the non-enlightened souls) ? If not many, we may be able to make it to Kaas on that day, maybe start a bit early in the day to beat the processions?

Next week-end I already have a Pune trip on cards, and even on 15th it's looking difficult to plan an outing. :(

Ashish - Can we plan for a Sat ? If we're on for a Sunday, next day being a working day, it might get too tiring to get back to work on a Monday. Hence, not too sure how many BHP'ians will be in. Just my thoughts though.
