BBMP has no uniform policy for removal of hoardings. The terms and conditions are different each time, which is why the removal of illegal hoardings has become impossible. Here’s the story on the enforcement mafia.
They are everywhere: On buildings, storm water drains, skywalks and parks. But no one knows the numbers, and no one knows how to stop them from coming up, or make money out of them. What’s going on behind the scenes?
BBMP doesn’t have the count of illegal hoardings in the city, and there’s no one to spot them too. Some advertising agencies continue to host ads without paying BBMP, even as disputes are in court. In effect, BBMP is not earning as much as it should.
