Dumping debris on footpaths, drains and storm water drains, parks, vacant plots is a growing menace in the city. Even hefty penalties are not serving as deterrent, say BMP officials. A team headed by the chief engineer (South) detected four cases in Wards 34, 36, 50 and 55 A on Monday and imposed a penalty of Rs 30,080. “We have been constantly reminding the citizens not to dump debris on public property. Even after creating debris collection points, the menace continues. But we may be forced to take stringent action,” they added.

On Tuesday, the Commissioner ordered the removal of material dumped near Anandrao Circle fly-over on Seshadri Road.
