The instructions had been passed at all the check-posts that they would not allow people carrying polythene bags while making entry for collecting octroi, a board official told.

The board also issued directions to the SHO to convince dairy owners working in the cantonment board to take their establishments out to ensure cleanliness in the cantonment.

In the meeting, Brig Chouhan also assured that the instructions were being issued to all check-posts to allow entry of civilians at night only after verifying their identity.
