Mal-mas Mela will start in the middle of Shravani Mela. The first paksha of Sawan month will be from 4th July to 16th July and the second paksha will be from 17th August to 31st August. The number of devotees coming from Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh is more in Mal-mas fair. 

The Kanwariyas of UP bring water from the Sangam Ghat and offer it to Baba. Therefore, this time the devotees are expected to turn up twice as compared to last year.

In view of the crowd of Kanwariyas, Panda Dharmarakshini Sabha has demanded not to offer Argha in Mal-mas Mela. However, a decision has not been taken on this yet. Speedy Darshanam system changed, feeding room
made keeping in mind the privacy of women, Speedy Darshanam pass will be available for Rs.500 instead of Rs.250 at Shravani Mela. 

The system will be closed on Sunday and Monday. Now the hassle of repeated filling up of forms by the priests for the Shandya darshanam Coupons has been done away with. Argha will be installed near the exit door of the temple for elderly and differently abled devotees.

In which they will be able to see themselves being dedicated to Baba in the screen. If the Kanwariyas standing in the queue have health related problems, arrangements have been made for them. Digital ECG machine will be available at Nehru Park, Q Complex and Baba Mandir Trauma Center.
