Civic body collects Rs. 30 lakh as fine

With dengue eradication inspections being conducted on a daily to day basis, the Madurai Corporation has collected over Rs. 30 lakh through fines as on Thursday.

A senior official from the health department of the Corporation told The Hindu that a total of Rs. 37 lakh was levied on individuals and industries. Each institution had been given a week to repay the fine. If they failed to comply, a first information report would be filed.

“This activity is not specifically for revenue generation purpose. It is to inculcate civic responsibility among the public,” he said.
