METRO’S SPECIAL ANTI-LITTERING DRIVES BRING DOWN
With a view to preventing nuisance activities in station premises, Metro Railway has been conducting anti-littering drives regularly and imposing fines on erring commuters.
During the period from 01.04.2019 to 29.02.2020 of this financial year (2019-20), as many as 3102 nuisance cases have been detected and Rs. 817475/- have been realised as fine from the offenders.
It is to be mentioned that during the corresponding period of the last financial year, 3804 nuisance cases were detected and Rs.988500/- were realised as fine from the offenders.
This significant decrease in nuisance cases has been possible due to the massive awareness campaigns through Public Address System, both in stations & trains, showing short anti-littering video films on platform TVs, strict vigilance of the station staff and co-operation from the commuters.
