Residents in east Delhi and NCR cities of Noida and Ghaziabad are complaining about the loud music and traffic violations caused by the Kanwar Yatra, with authorities taking no action. The Kanwar camp organisers argue that the loud music helps the devotees ease their pain. Residents also allege that there are rampant traffic violations in the border areas during the Kanwar season. Delhi Police claim that they cannot impose restrictions due to it being a religious matter. Delhi Traffic Police issued a traffic alert due to the Kanwar Yatra.
