Corporations claimed that when private firms were awarded advertising rights, widespread corruption occurred. They claimed that, with the approval of a few authorities, three agencies have taken over the city's advertising space.

Mayor Gadwal vijayalakshmi instructed ghmc Commissioner D Ronald Rose to designate an enquiring officer to look into the allegations and provide a report. In addition, she pledged to form a house committee to examine the company's advertising guidelines. Concerns were also expressed over the ghmc Act's tax collection on wallet PLATFORM' target='_blank' title='digital-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW'>digital boards and the state of bus shelters that are leased for fifteen years.
