The High Court of Karnataka directed the BBMP not to take any action in a haste with regard to the removal of advertisement structures.

The court was hearing a petition challenging the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike's notice banning installation of advertisement hoardings for a year.

A group of advertising agencies have moved the court seeking quashing of the notification issued on August 6.

The court directed the Judicial Registrar to place the matter before the Chief Justice for appropriate orders.

The petitioners claimed that they were paying taxes and also had the BBMP’s permission to put up hoardings and the holding iron structures.

According to them, the ban was against statutory provisions and would take away their livelihood.

They submitted that the respondents were contemplating the forcible removal of the advertisement hoardings, including iron-like lining structures and iron structures put up for the display of advertisement hoardings, which was also in compliance with the advertisement bylaws.

They contended that if the structures were removed, they would be put into great inconvenience.
