The MCD is set to carry out a drive against illegal hoardings, kiosks and posters in Delhi, during which offenders will face strict penal action.

Chairman of MCD's Standing Committee R K Singhal Thursday directed the Municipal Commissioner, the Officer on Special Duty (Advertisement) and Deputy Commissioners of all 12 zones to launch an intensive drive against illegal hoardings, kiosks and posters so that the city remains "free of eyesores".

He said each and every crossing, round-about, road-side and other public place must be kept under watch.

"The officials concerned must file FIR against offenders.

They should also impose fine on them. The offenders must feel the pinch of MCD action," Singhal said.

Once such hoardings and posters are removed, vigilance should be maintained against the offenders and deterrent action continued to be taken, he said.
