Addressing Littering in India

1. A fine of Rs.200 should be imposed on littering

Suggestions on preventing such incidences:

1. Use of police force assisted by police dogs in crowded locations.
2. Used of CCTV at most likely places.
3. Use of police force in civil dress for trapping by surprise.
4. Arrangement to trace and penalize the vehicles involved.
5. Fine by bus conductor on involved passengers and handing over to police.
6. Carrying of photo id mandatory for all citizens, which will help for penalizing.
7. Simple reporting or FIR facility by empowering common citizen for helping in reporting. more  
The Govt may assign the funds being spent to the RWA's as being spent on employees appointed and not doing their jobs or they report to the RWA's. I am sure enough number of persons appointed to do the jobs. more

Charity begins at home. All resident welfare associations to take charge of their area - get to know the corporator, the karmacharis of corporation that sweep and clean their area and garbage collectors. Make voluntary teams to monitor cleanliness of area and to ensure area is kept clean. Raise awareness of residents on cleanliness and littering. Pressurize local MLA/ MP to provide MPLAD funds to purchase adequate dustbins, repair footpaths, clean drains, establish garbage segregation units and wet garbage mulching stations. Establish adequate paid public toilets in the area and maintain them through contractors. Have CCTV cameras at every corner and at every business establishment to improve compliance as well as security. Convince businesses in the area to have toilets for their staff and for customers and to keep these clean and well maintained. Try and get some green going in the area such as sidewalks, parks etc. Plant trees and plants where possible in the area to make environs cool and capable of taking up carbon dioxide excess and to generate oxygen. Have regular awareness campaign drives in the locality to reduce non compliance over time. Unless the problem is broken into smaller geographical bits that can be adequately addressed the situation will not become manageable. more
