Shops lacking waste bins to be fined

Open garbage burning to draw stringent action, warns corporation chief

GHMC Commissioner B. Janardhan Reddy has directed officials to penalise shop owners, commercial establishments and hawkers for not keeping waste bins.

Addressing zonal commissioners, deputy commissioners, medical officers and engineers at the preparatory meeting for Swachh Survekshan 2018, Mr. Reddy warned against littering the streets.

He also asked officials to adopt the municipal wards they reside in, and monitor the developmental and sanitation works there, apart from advising them to appoint retired officers residing locally as booth level officers.

Election Commission has approved the proposal of retired public servants as booth level officers, he informed.

Despite several warnings, instances of burning garbage openly are coming to his notice, he said, directing the officials to take stringent action against those who resort to that practice.

Mr. Reddy then asked the officials to appoint women caretakers for She-Toilets.

He called for immediate resolution of complaints received in the ‘Mana Nagaram’ programme and asked for the report in a week.

Resident Welfare Associations and Walkers’ Associations of various localities should be handed over maintenance of rainwater harvesting structures.

Reminding recent orders for a fine of Rs. 1,000 to be imposed on officials per day for delay in issuing building permissions beyond 20 days, Mr. Reddy asked for rejection of applications within a week if they fall short of requirements.

A press note informed that the GHMC is also distributing garbage bins to all city school with help of NGOs and corporate companies, without any charge.
