MCC senior health inspector Kiran Giridhar told that the city corporation has installed CCTV cameras at 12 locations in the city. “CCTV cameras are placed near the black spots where people dump waste. We have already sent notices to many violators, based on the CCTV footage. Many people have already paid a penalty after we issued notices. Meanwhile, a case has also been filed at the Barke police station, against a street vendor near the Central Market,” he said.

The surveillance team found a street vendor dumping waste near the Central Market premises. “He dumped many bags filled with garbage at a public place. Accordingly, a notice was served to him, but instead of paying the penalty, he abused the officials at the MCC office. Hence, a police complaint was filed,” Giridhar said.

“Other than paying a penalty, the violators have given a written undertaking, that they will not repeat the mistake. We will continue this initiative, till all black spots are converted into clean areas,” he said, adding that other than Central Market, CCTV cameras were placed at the Old Port and other areas, where people dump waste carelessly.

Urban development minister Byrathi Basavaraj had in a recent review meeting, pointed out several black spots in the city. In fact, the minister went around the city in the morning on February 1, before holding a meeting. Following this, officials led by MCC commissioner Akshay Sridhar took initiatives to clear all black spots, through various initiatives, including penalising the violators.
