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 07.03.2020 of this financial year (2019-20), as many as 3139 nuisance cases have been detected and Rs. 8,34,750/- have been realised as fine from the offenders.
It is to be mentioned that during the corresponding period of the last financial year, 3876 nuisance cases were detected and Rs.10, 06,750/- 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.
