Bengaluru municipality focuses on garbage nine months ahead of election

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) recently imposed fine amounts of Rs 3.75 lakh and Rs 1.7 lakh respectively on the owners Raheja Pebble Bay and Sterling apartment for failing to comply with solid waste management rules. The BBMP has now called for a meeting with solid waste management officers and others to find out more details on such apartments, where owners would eventually be fined for not following the rules.

According to BBMP, on each unit, officials can impose a penalty of Rs 1,000 and depending on the number of the units, the total amount will also increase. But with nine months left for corporation election, citizens wonder if this is a publicity gimmick to make garbage the contesting corporators' poll plank.
