BMC comes up with advertisement and sky signs policy, seeks suggestions from public

THE BMC has come up with a new advertisement and sky signs policy, which is expected to pave the way for setting up digital hoardings and regulating banners across the city. Believed to boost the civic body’s revenue and give the city a new look, the policy is also expected to put curbs on illegal political hoardings. The BMC has published the policy on its website, inviting objections and suggestions from the residents within a month. Through this policy, BMC for the first time plans to regulate the size of photographs and the content that can be used in banners or hoardings. It is also working on doing away with illegal political banners and hoardings defacing properties.
