Hoardings and Billboards:

  • are ugly & ruin the aesthetics and visuals of Bengaluru's greenery & skyline
  • are a traffic hazard, can cause accidents and are a distraction to safe driving
  • are unscientifically chosen , randomly placed and pedestrian unfriendly
  • are expensive eyesores or structures  having no purpose
  • trees are often cut to improve billboard visibility - irrevocable damage to our green cover 
  • are poorly maintained and can pose danger
  • leave options for bribery and corruption as officials can collude in grant of the permissions
  • Bengaluru's outdoor advertising is LOSING money, and requires a lot of administration and supervision to manage and maintain. So why do we still have this millstone? 
  • in this digital age, hoardings and billboards are old-fashioned, irrelevant and  passe
  • environmentally unfriendly, require energy for lighting etc
  • globally cities, have banned phased out these city eyesores as part of good urban planning.. Smart , green cities like us don't need it. In India, Chennai, Mumbai , Ahmedabad have already done so.
