While the security would be overseen by special police and an army unit, the state government has appointed 36 magistrates to take care of the visit.

District magistrate Rajesh Kumar and Senior Superintendent of Police Manjil Saini have conducted multiple rounds of meetings and instructions have  been issued by the state government to make Vrindavan a no-power cut zone for November 15-16, an official said.

Mukherjee is coming to attend a function at the Chandrodaya temple but expressed his desire to visit the Bankey Bihari temple as well.

Several black-faced, long-tailed langurs have also been integrated into the security service as the narrow by-lanes are infested with red-faced rhesus monkeys, who often attack visitors to the Krishna temple. The langurs would keep a check on them.  

The President will walk the last 200 metres from the VVIP car parking to the temple.

Encroachments on the road will be removed and CCTV cameras installed at the temple premises, a district official informed.

While there is no word on whether Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will receive the President, sources said that Governor Ram Naik will be present at Vrindavan to receive Mukherjee.

A high-level meeting will be presided over by chief secretary Alok Ranjan on Wednesday to finalise the plans for the presidential visit.
