Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) is cracking down harder on people who leave trash strewn around the city’s streets and alleys; the corporation will henceforth fine violators up to Rs 10,000.

Anyone caught depositing trash on undesignated spots will now face fines of up to Rs 10,000.

Speaking media, GMC Commissioner Devashish Sharma said that the corporation has been pleading with the citizens not to trash the city and that those who refuse to relent will face fines of up to Rs 10,000 depending on the seriousness of the offence.

Previously, the fine for littering ranged from Rs 500 to Rs 1000.

Additionally, the GMC Commissioner stated that before punishing habitual offenders, evidence would be gathered against them. The Commissioner stated that if the offender does not pay the fee, a police complaint will be filed.

He also mentioned that the GMC will pick up all of the waste that had been segregated at homes.
