BANGALORE: Committees set up by mayor Mumtaz Begum on hoardings and pay and park met on Monday. The committee decided to refer the proposal to introduce the paid parking system back to the government and to begin a demolition drive on unauthorised hoardings from Wednesday.

Begum told this website's newspaper that many of her instructions on the removal of unauthorised hoardings were not taken seriously by the officials and she would start the removal drive from Koramangala on Wednesday.

Deputy mayor M Laxminarayana said that if hoardings were managed properly, the civic body would rake in an amount of Rs 500 crore. The BMP is now preparing to face the monsoons, but not all civic agencies are ready for the rains.
