To ensure that the streets are not littered on New Year’s eve, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) had deployed 40 marshals to the monitor M.G. Road, Church Street, Brigade Road and some other areas in the Central Business District where revellers usually gather in large numbers.

A close watch will also be kept on Indiranagar 8th Main, 12th Main, 100 Feet Road, and Koramangala. Any littering or public nuisance on the roads will attract fines amounting to ₹200.

BBMP's Special Commissioner (Solid Waste Management) D. Randeep said plans had also been made to ensure that the roads are cleaned sooner than usual. Towards this end, the pourakarmikas from neighbouring wards would be deputed to clean the CBD areas where mechanical sweepers would also be deployed.

“The mustering of pourakarmikas will begin as early as 4.30 a.m. This is to ensure that the streets are rid of litter and cleaned before the office hours begin,” he said.
