Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has taken a strict stand against persons displaying advertisements on trees by fixing nails and will register offences against them.
Radhakrishnan B, Municipal Commissioner, has asked all such persons to remove such advertisements on tree barks within three days. Otherwise, NMC will start registering offences against such advertisement persons in the police stations.
The corporation has undertaken plantation on large-scale in the city. People display advts on roadside trees by fixing nails. This also causes injury to the tree as well damaging beautification process. Therefore, such persons should understand their responsibility about environment/beautification and start removing the advts in three days, Radhakrishnan pointed out.
