The exhibition will attract around 50,000 visitors a day and the total number of visitors throughout the 45-day period would be approximately 20 lakh.

The High Court case:

It is alleged that the Exhibition Society has not fulfilled all the criteria necessary to conduct Numaish-2022 and as such shouldn’t conduct it as it could result in colossal loss of life if a fire breaks out again. Regarding the issue, a public interest litigation (PIL) was filed in the Telangana high court by local lawyer Aijazuddin Khaja.

In the court case, Dana Kishore, who was the GHMC commissioner in 2019, filed a counter-affidavit, stating that the Exhibition Society had not taken up proper permission in 2019 which caused the fire back then. The fire resulted in colossal loss of property the ramifications of which are felt by the traders even till date.
