BBMP takes technology route against hoardings

  • The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will go the crowd-sourcing route to crack down on illegal hoardings in the city.
  • The civic body is using an internal map to locate and display information of nearly 5,500 hoardings in the city. While none is illegal, considering that the civic body has not renewed leases in over a year, there is court stay against removal of 150 hoardings.
  • The exercise of capturing all data, including photographs, geo-location and owners’ details, will be completed
  • The information is being put on their geographic information system (GIS) and can be accessed by citizens in around a week.
  • Concurrently, they will be placing advertisements and issuing public warnings to plot owners where the hoardings have come up to provide documents of their illegality.
  • If they do not have documents, they have to remove the hoardings within 15 days
  • When the notice period ends, the BBMP hopes citizens can inform civic body officials through the Sahaya app of illegal hoardings in the area.
  • The commissioner said that action would be taken for having illegal hoardings, including criminal cases.
  • Earlier, the BBMP council passed a resolution banning flexes, hoardings or any public advertisement for one year.
  • This had followed a rap from the High Court of Karnataka recently.
