Nagpur Municipal Corporation has taken a harsh stand on removing encroachments in the city. It will launch action from Tuesday to remove roadside and other encroachments.
The campaign has been taken in order to maintain clean and beautiful image of Nagpur.
NMC has decided to seize stalls and other materials while the concerned persons would not get back them till one month. Then, The Commissioner (Encroachment) would decide whether to return the seized materials to the owners by imposing fine or not.
