Ganesh Chaturthi is just around the corner, and the artisans are quite busy giving final touches to the idols. However, this year, Ganesh idols will cost more than usual as the prices of raw materials have gone up. And for those who are curious, the prices of both eco-friendly and POP idols will be 15-20 percent higher than usual.


The prices of POP, colors, bamboo sticks and coir that go into the making of the idols will add to the cost of the idols, and the approximate cost of the 1-foot idol is expected to be somewhere between Rs 1000 and Rs 1500. The prices of eco-friendly idols on the online platforms are likely to cost Rs 300. According to one seller from Dhoolpet, a 5 feet idol is supposed to cost Rs 10,000, while that of a 14ft and 18ft idol would be costing Rs 60,000 to Rs 1 lakh. Though the materials costs increase every year, this year, the rates have doubled. So, the makers have had to increase the prices to get minimum profits.


Another reason is the transportation of idols from Maharashtra. The sellers share that the demand for small idols is pretty high this year. One other reason is the high prices of sand that are brought in from West Bengal and Orissa. With the flooding of both the states, the rates of sand have increased, and this has added to the cost of the idols.
