HYDERABAD: To make the city more cleaner and greener, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) would impose fines on those who found littering the roads.

The civic body has decided to take the help of CCTV cameras installed by city police to identify those throwing garbage on roads. As 90 per cent of the roads are covered by the CCTV cameras, these roads would be monitored by police and GHMC officials.

GHMC Commissioner B Janardhan Reddy asked the deputy commissioners of the corporations to identify those throwing garbage on the roads and impose fine on them.      

The GHMC has distributed two dustbins to households in the city. Vehicles for carrying garbage from households have also been engaged for collecting the garbage from house to house. Still, the roads are being littered by certain people which the GHMC is very serious about it. The city police has agreed to provide CCTVs footage to GHMC against those people found littering the roads.
