Chandigarh, April 1
Several restaurants, hotels and chains of multi-national eateries were issued a challan of Rs 10,000 as the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation started a drive against littering.
The drive was started a week after the MC notified the new solid waste management bylaws. Sources said around 80 challans were issued today for various violations. A majority of the challans were issued to eateries in Sector 22 and 35. Teams were sent to the spots and the challans were issued after garbage was found thrown in the open. Of the total challans, at least 35 were issued to hotels and restaurants for littering in the open.
KK Yadav, MC Commissioner, said people had been advised to use the swachhta app to inform it about littering. — TNS
