KATHMANDU:KathmanduMetropolitanCity has started removing illegally placed hoarding boards from facades of buildings of the capital city.
Officials at Law Enforcement Department, under KMC, and experts have been deployed to identify and rip off the boards placed arbitrarily on commercial buildings, shops, houses and apartment buildings at Sundhara, Putalisadak and Bagbazaar. KMC is removing those billboards and hoarding boards that have been placed in violation of Advertisement Policy enacted by KMC.
According to KMC, the metropolis office has been removing billboards put up on the rooftops and windows in a manner that overlaps the edge of roads resulting to ugly cityscape. Business enterprises were found not paying the tax even after repeated verbal and written warnings.
Mahesh Kafle, chief of the Revenue Division at KMC, warned that the metropolis will act more aggressively against the rule violators. “The unsystematic and illegal billboards are being removed to minimise the visual pollution and flashy advertisements which are not only contributing to ugly cityscape but also causing traffic distraction,” he added.
Kafle informed that signboards of the shops and educational institutes will also be pulled out if they exceeded the prescribed size. It will take six months to clear the illegal and unsystematic hoarding boards from Kathmandu.
