Following a high court order to pull down advertisement hoardings, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike has stepped up the pace in removing the advertisement structures also.

This comes close on the heels of the civic body successfully removing the illegal flexes and banners across the city.

The BBMP also filed as many as 767 FIRs against offenders for not adhering to the guidelines set by the court. Though 97 of these offenders voluntarily removed the advertising structures after the filing of FIRs by the BBMP, the remaining are still pending.

Meanwhile, after the state government’s approval for the BBMP to go ahead with the newly drafted advertising bylaws, the Palike has now called for objections from the public. Citizens can access the document, which is available both online and at the BBMP offices across the city.

The draft is open for public view for a period of one month and the objections can be filed within this period. A senior BBMP official said that the revised draft of the new advertising bylaws would be submitted to the state government and rules will come into effect once it is gazetted.
