Ensuring streets free of Posters/Wall Graffiti - Solutions

1. Hoardings or posters should be allowed only at specified locations earmarked by the local body
2. Posting stuff on walls could be made a criminal offence
3. Heavy fine should be collected from the people putting posters/making graffiti in public areas
4. Political parties should be strictly warned about not outing up wall posters on walls in public areas
5. The area municipality should be given the power to challan the proprietor of the poster with the help of the address mentioned on it
6. The municipality should click a picture of the poster and send the challan on the address mentioned on it along with the picture
7. They could also create a flying squad which could move around the city to take pictures of the culprits/posters
8. Political posters should be removed by the municipality and the cost of removal should be billed to the party
9. The RWAs could be empowered to participate in this system
10. Places should be designated in each city where posters could be put free of cost
11. A nominal tariff plan should be designed for people/organizations to put up posters at ‘designated paid places’
12. Traffic police has appointed contractors for removal of wrongly parked vehicles - similarly contracts can be given for removal of posters and confiscated material
13. One solution can be to repaint the wall by inviting graffiti artists themselves
14. A set of guidelines on that should be made and displayed in public places. more

Good suggestions and should be strictly adhered to. more  
Wall graffiti in no case be allowed. Separate posters can be used for limited period of time say 15/20/30 days or more/less days. Posters must be at specified locations fixed by local authorities. For each poster security deposit must be taken by local authority. After time period is over, these posters must be removed by owner/concern people or double the amount of security be paid or in addition lawful action must also be taken if hoarding/posters are not removed within time. Fine should also be fixed for delay of each day. more  
we aready filed a PIL for the same in Supreme Court more
