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
