The PMC standing committee yesterday sent the proposal to its signage department, for its recommendations on the initiative. “We have sent the proposal to the sky sign department to frame a policy for its implementation,” said Bapu Karne, chairman, standing committee.

Corporator Avinash Bagwe, who tabled the proposal, said, “In my proposal I asked that some of the city’s main chowks and roads be made hoarding-free. This can be done by taking strict action against the illegal billboards that have mushroomed. I even suggested that a fine of R5,000 be levied on those who repeatedly put up hoardings in the same zone.”
