  • No new hoardings to project on to footpath area
  • Stability certificates for ad agencies for licences

    HYDERABAD: The MCH in a drastic overhaul of its advertisement policy has announced that no new permissions will be granted for unipoles and hoardings and all `unauthorised' structures will be removed immediately.

    No unipoles or hoardings are to be allowed to project on to the footpath area or road carriageway hereafter.

    These decisions were taken after a thorough review at the Standing Committee meeting here on Friday presided over by Special Officer S.P. Singh. The meeting decided that after the enquiry committee (also investigating into the unipole collapse on Wednesday night) makes it recommendations, the ad agency concerned will have to submit fresh stability certificates for renewal of licences.

    A similar exercise is be carried out in the case of communication towers and other such structures erected on top of the buildings and fresh stability certification needs to be submitted on the above lines, according to N.V.S. Reddy, Additional Commissioner (Advertisement).
