Noida Authority to fine litterbugs

Noida Authority will now impose a fine starting from Rs 500 that can go up to Rs 10,000 on those who litter the roadsides and public places. This decision was taken after the visit of NGT Committee on Solid Waste Management. The authority will draw up a proposal to implement these guidelines soon. Under these, Noida Authority teams will go around the city and on finding any person throwing garbage or waste in the open will issue a fine then & there. The more the garbage the more fine will have to be paid.
