Mysuru, January 2:- “It is mandatory to take permission prior to installing any flex or banner in the city and rural areas,” said Deputy Commissioner D Randeep here on Tuesday.
He was speaking at a meeting of various committees of the public welfare department. He said that installing flexes without permission attracts punishment.
“People in rural areas and cities need to take permission from their respective panchayat, town or city municipal corporation. If anyone is caught installing flexes without permission, strict action will be taken against them,” he said.
“Flexes and banners are mostly seen during festivals and they cause communal disharmony. Mysuru, Nanjanagud, and Hunsur have become sensitive areas. CCTV cameras need to be installed in 100-150 villages of the district,” said Superintendent of Police, Ravi D Channannavar.
Members of Jagruti committee explained to the DC about the problems they are facing. Pourakarmikas are not getting basic amenities at the layouts constructed under Nurm scheme. They are not being provided with boots and gloves even in the city. Deputy Commissioner promised to solve their problem.
Deputy Director of women and public welfare department, Prabha, director of Ambedkar development board Bharathi, and others were present. (MR/KS).
