Remove/Ban banners & posters illegally affixed on Public Property in Hyderabad

Indiscriminate pasting of banners and posters in public places harms the image of Hyderabad city and also damages the environment. Most of these are pasted illegally, without taking permission.

Illegal poster pasting refers to the act of placing posters on public places and private places such as walls, poles, fences and hoardings. There are thousands of illegal posters attached to both public and private property.  When the posters are peeled off, they create litter which pollutes pavements and stormwater systems, and eventually have an adverse environmental affect on our lakes and waterways. 

Though it is banned by law, in the past GHMC has been unsucessful in dealing with this issue.  We request the GHMC Commissioner to

1.  Immediately launch a drive to remove all the illegal posters

2.  Take action against offenders in accordance to the G.O.RT.No.1163, M.A dated 31.12.1996 of M.A & UD.

Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is being hosted by India at Hyderabad from 1 to 19 October 2012, which attracts visitors from across the world and these posters will cause a bad image to the city and also come across and environment unfriendly.
