As per the guidelines, installation of any kind of unauthorised cut-outs, banners, posters, flex, flags and other promotional materials will be completely prohibited. Under the advertising policy, permissions have been given to display advertisements on hoardings at various places in the city.

Generally, permission is not taken from the concerned local body for advertisements placed on a day-to-day basis.

The language or matter to be written on the publicity or advertisement board will also have to be mentioned along with the application form. This will form the basis for the issuance of the no-objection letter by the concerned local body.

On the basis of permission or no objection certificate from the concerned local body, various advertising agencies will be able to display political advertisements at valid places in accordance with the prescribed conditions in the interest of the applied person, institution, candidate, after receiving their prescribed conditions or fees.

 While granting permission or no objection by the concerned local body, no fee of any kind other than the prescribed fee will be received from the candidate or political party. It has been clarified that this permission or no objection can be given only for the already approved listed places.

 This order will be applicable in the entire revenue border area of Indore district.
