Ludhiana, December 4
In view of the defacement of public property, the Municipal Corporation (MC) has issued a public notice directing violators to remove illegal hoardings, posters, banners from signages/wayfindings and public properties by themselves within 15 days or face action. The violators have been directed to remove all illegal social, religious and political banners/hoardings from wayfindings and public properties in the said period, otherwise action will be taken against the violators under the Defacement of Public Property Act, 1985.
A large number of illegal political hoardings and banners have been installed in the city. Civic body officials said apart from removing the illegal banners/hoardings, the MC will also recover the amount incurred on removal of the illegal banners from the violators.
After issuing the public notice, MC Commissioner Sandeep Rishi also urged residents/organisations that they should not install illegal hoardings/banners in the city as the illegal activity also puts a blot on the face of the city. The residents should help the authorities in keeping the city clean and green.
