KOCHI: Following the ban on hoardings and flex boards in public places, the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is also out to get hoardings removed from electricity posts. Rishi Raj Singh, Chief Vigilance Officer, at press meet held in Kochi recently, said that hoardings on the posts would be removed.
“Electricity posts are the property of the KSEB. No one can hang any hoardings on electricity posts. Hanging advertising posters and flex boards on electricity boards are very common across the state. While travelling through Kochi city, we had seen that big hoardings clipped on the KSEB posts. This is illegal and such activities would not be permitted,” he said. KSEB officials said the department is planning measures to be taken against such illegal activities. “In the initial stage all the hoardings would be removed and the public warned against it. Later action would be taken against the people who do not follow the guidelines,” he said.
According to KSEB officials, the steps for removing flex boards would start after December. A direction in this regard would be given to KSEB officials across the state.
