Those who are reluctant to segregate waste and those who throw garbage in vacant sites or next to a road will have to get ready to pay heavy fines. The Pourakarmikas do not clear garbage that is not segregated. Hence some people throw the garbage next to roadside, creating black spots. To avoid this and to fine the culprits, the BBMP is installing CCTV cameras at strategic places all over the City, reports Kannada Prabha.
Mayor G Padmavathi said in some areas though tipper services are available people are throwing garbage on the road. In Dollars Colony this menace was found. After a camera was installed, the incidents of throwing garbage in road stopped. Hence it was decided to install two CCTV cameras in each ward.
In the first phase, CCTV will be installed at Malleswaram constituency. Tenders have been invited for installing CCTV cameras at Palace Ward (35), Mathikere Ward (36), Rajmahal Ward (64) and Gayatri Nagar Ward (74) at a cost of Rs 10 lakh for each ward. The last date for submitting the tender is August 18 and the tender will be finalised on Aug 22.
After observing the imapct of these CCTV cameras, another 1000 CCTV cameras will be installed all over the City. The BBMP has identified 450 black spots where huge garbage gets accumulated. The BBMP has also decided to fit CCTV cameras at the 600 centres where garbage gets loaded from small autos into big tippers, said the officials.
