Itarsi (Madhya Pradesh): Itarsi Think twice before you keep building materials on roads! Else, you may have to pay a fine of Rs 1,000. This is what an order of Nagar Palika Parishad says.
Chairman of the civic body Pankaj Choure directed the officials that there should not be any sand, stone chips, cement, red sand and other building materials on roads which should remain clean.
Choure said a fine of Rs 1,000 will be imposed on those who occupy roads by keeping such materials there. Nagar Palika chairman issued the directive at a meeting with the officials of the civic body and of the revenue department.
Chief municipal officer Ritu Mehra, revenue head Amrita Mahish Thakur and other officials were present at the meeting. Choure told the officials of the revenue department that there should not be any negligence in work, and that they should collect property, water and other taxes without delay.
Choure told the revenue officials to issue notices to those who have yet to pay taxes. He also told the officials to take the photographs of the buildings being constructed under PM Awas Yojna, so that the beneficiaries may be given the first, second and third installments for constructing houses.
He told each ward Moharrirs to take photographs of those buildings. Thakur told the revenue officials to work for the department with sincerity. Mehra said ward in-charges would be held responsible for each work in their respective areas.
Their duties are not confined to collecting revenues, but to stop encroachments, maintain cleanliness, drainage system, to conduct surveys, and to ensure that eligible people are getting pension.
Besides, they should issue notices to owners of dilapidated houses, see the CM helpline complaints, survey residences, Pattas and other issues, and alibis for not doing the work will not be accepted, she said.
