The Uttar Pradesh state regional transport corporation (UPSRTC) has started a cleanliness campaign at its four bus depots in Ghaziabad.

Officials said videos of people littering or urinating on depot premises will be recorded on CCTV cameras and uploaded on the internet.

“Toilet facility has been provided for passengers at all bus depots, but they continue to urinate in the open, resulting in filth around the depots. Once a person starts littering the premises, others join in and then it becomes difficult to clean the area,” said PK Bose, regional manager, UPSRTC.

He said their managing director, K Ravindra Naik, has ordered a cleanliness drive in the area. Display boards will be put up at all depots to raise awareness. He has also directed the staff to save the CCTV recordings of respective depots.

“In the initial stage, passengers will be cautioned and made aware about the cleanliness campaign. For this purpose, huge display boards will be put up in all bus depots in the city. Further, passengers will be sensitised regarding cleanliness and politely asked not to litter or urinate in the open. If people do not follow (the directions during) the sensitisation drive, their videos will be uploaded on the internet,” Bose said.

He said the move will instil a sense of cleanliness among passengers and the prospect of having their videos uploaded on the internet will act as a deterrent.

According to passengers, this decision might make public places cleaner.

“The moment we step into bus depots, the stink of urine hits us. Open urination is not just filthy but may spread diseases as well. The cleanliness campaign by UPSRTC is a good decision and should be followed by other government departments and public places,” said PD Sharma of Lajpat Nagar.
