End to all new hoardings

End to all new hoardings

Bangalore: There will be no new hoardings in the city in the near future. Even the current ones will last only till the validity of their licences expire.
The order passed last Thursday had cut-outs, hoardings and flex posters of popular leaders in and around Vidhana Soudha cleared within a day’s time.
The latest government advertisement extends this prohibition to all areas under the BBMP limits and not just the areas like Kumara Krupa Road, Raj Bhavan Road, Ambedkar Road, Post Office Road, Basaveshwara Circle, Maharani’s College Road, K R Circle, Cubbon Park and Lalbagh.
While the removal of banners around the secretariat took less than a day, the same process in all areas might take some time because everybody has to be notified within a reasonable period before actually bringing down all the hoarding in the city.
However, BBMP officials said that work in this direction has begun with no licences renewed or issued since July 25 and that they would implement this policy with all stringent measures now until the new advertisement policy is finalized.
