This is What Will Happen if You Litter At Sector 17 Chandigarh

Sector 17 is one such place in Chandigarh which is an open mall and the administration is trying hard to increase the footfall in this area. In an order to make Sector 17 plaza neat and clean, the govt. has come with a plan where people littering at sector 17 would be fined. It’s nit just about fine but the punishment is harder.

Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has been given the responsibility to keep the area clean and have also been given the charge to fine people who litter at Sector 17 plaza. On the very first day of the action taken by the MC, 2 people were challaned for violating the rule in Sector 17 plaza.

Chandigarh has been termed as the beautiful city of India and has also been ranked second in the cleanest city of India under the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan conducted in the year 2016. After ranking second in the list of cleanest cities of India, garbage can be seen at many places within the plaza.

That leaves a very bad impact on the beauty of the beautiful city. Despite dustbins at many places, people throw garbage in the plain area. To maintain the cleanliness of the city, MC has taken an action to issue challans. Out of the 2 challan, one has been issued to a shopkeeper and another one to a visitor of Sector 17 plaza.

The Action:
