Guntur Municipal Corporation to Remove All Illegal Billboards – The New Indian Express

By Express press service

GUNTUR: The Municipal Corporation of Guntur will act against all illegal billboards in the city. According to reports, the GMC has authorized more than 1,200 billboards. However, advertising agencies have created many tips without official permission in recent years.

After the formation of the GMC council in March last year, Mayor Kavati Manohar Naidu decided to take strict action and held a meeting with representatives of advertising agencies.

Recently, business leaders from the ruling party met with City Commissioner Kirthi Chekuri and asked her to crack down on illegal billboards. They also informed the commissioner that the agencies were illegally using electricity for the hoardings and not paying taxes or rent.

GMC’s chief planning officer, Murthy, said ad agencies would need to get prior permission from GMC and pay rent to put up a picket fence. Thus, an investigation is underway to identify the total number of illegal palisades in the city.
