Chandigarh

Removal of unauthorized Signboards and Flex Banners advertising varied events/ activities.

Sir,

Of late it has been observed that defying the policy of the administration regarding display boards, banners and hoardings in the city, every possible space has been unauthorisedly used for the purpose of advertising various activities in the city. Besides giving a shabby look and diverting the attention of people driving on the roads, there is a huge revenue loss to the administration and on the other hand the facilitators Of such displays are earning an easy buck in connivance of those who have to keep a check on such unauthorised activities. Even if in some instances permissions have been granted the size of hoardings and span of display is compromised.

During the festival season at many places religious Hoardings ( Big Sized) have also been fixed. Just to quote few examples one a education institution in Sector 27,IN ram Lila Ground of Sector 27,A religious place o=in Sector 20 ,ON a junction in sector 32-30-29-31 some where builders ,some where diagnostic centers or even some functions etc.

Broadly speaking every available space has ben used to display advertisement of dubious academies or medical facilities or physiotherapy centers etc .Such flex banners attract people to cheaper replica of services .These displays which don’t have approval of the authorities, provide a chance for many unauthorized activities in the UT.

As such it is requested that all such unauthorized Sign Boards, Banners and Hoardings may kindly be got removed rather confiscated and action taken against all such institutions and heavy penalties be imposed.

Second Innings Association appeals to the administration to swing into an immediate action in removing such unauthorized advertisements. we will be able cleanse the area and prevent any dubious and unapproved activities in the city.
