BBMP rids the city of unauthorised hoardings

BBMP will start removing unauthorised hoardings put up by various organisations and individuals to commemorate birthday wishes, condolences, best wishes, etc on roadsides and tree branches. These cutouts, boards, posters and flex banners are spoiling the cityscape and are a punishable offence. Action will be taken as per Karnataka Open Places (Prevention of Disfigurement) Act.

  1. It is a good initiative taken up by BBMP. In addition to this the BBMP should publish a procedure as to what a citizen can do or how he can report the presence of such hoardings so that the city remains free from hoardings.
