Ghatkopar hoarding owner absconded...

Currently, the owner of Ego media Private Limited is absconding in this whole matter and his phone is also switched off. Police have registered a case of culpable homicide against Bhavesh. Bhavesh Bhinde is the owner of Ego media Private Limited. The company which had put up this hoarding is also accused of rape. An FIR has also been registered against Bhavesh in Mulund police station.

Bhindi is also accused of poisoning the tree and cutting the tree. Bhavesh has also contested elections and according to his affidavit, 23 criminal cases are registered against him. Amidst all this, one question that is arising in everyone's mind is what are the rules for putting up hoardings in any city and who keeps a watch on the hoardings put up in the cities?

Why are hoardings put up?

Many big brands install displays of different shapes and sizes in public places to promote themselves. This type of display is usually installed in places where there is heavy traffic noise, high visibility and walking so that more and more people can see it.

Under which rules are hoardings put up?

In cities, the responsibility of regulating the erection of these hoardings rests with the local urban bodies i.e. ULBs. Most such issues are dealt with under municipal rules only. The procedure for how to get permission to put up any hoarding in the city is mentioned in the rules/bye-laws implemented under the Municipal Act. In this rule, the fare, size of hoardings, and the conditions on the basis of which these hoardings will be allowed to be installed are mentioned.
