Ludhiana: Following the news reports published in Ludhiana Edition of `Daily Post’ regarding the illegal hoardings installed on unipoles, structures in vacant plots, private buildings on the Pakhowal Road, Ferozepur Road and on other roads, the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) officials have started conducting a survey of illegal hoardings.
The GLADA officials claimed that all the illegal hoardings will be removed in next few days after the completion of survey.
Additional Chief Administrator (ACA) GLADA, JK Jain said that he has directed Estate Officer and field staff to check and remove the illegal hoardings which falls in the jurisdiction of GLADA.
Talking to ‘Daily Post’, Estate Officer Ram Singh said that they have started the survey of illegal hoardings in their area and following the directions of senior officials all the hoardings will be removed.
“We will submit the report of illegal hoardings on Monday and after the directions of senior officials the hoardings will be removed immediately”, added Ram Singh.
He further said in the absence of outdoor advertisement policy the companies take benefit by installing hoardings but we will take strict action.
It is pertinent to mention here that some anonymous advertisement companies have installed illegal hoardings in the outskirts of the city causing loss to the government treasury.
At Phullanwal Chowk on Pakhowal Road, around 10 big size hoardings were installed on unipoles and structures and buildings. The unipoles and structures were installed in the vacant plots and buildings located in the Chowk but no one claims the ownership of unipoles and structures for hoardings. However, the hoardings of different companies were changed after short interval of time.
Apart from Pakhowal Road the hoardings were installed on Gill Road, near Toll Plaza on Ludhiana-Jalandhar Highway and on Chandigarh Road, the area which falls under the jurisdiction of GLADA.
“I have directed the Estate Officer and field staff to check and remove the illegal hoardings immediately. I will also seek report regarding the action taken by the staff.”
JK Jain, Additional chief Administrator (ACA), GLADA
“We have started the survey of illegal hoardings and after the report the process of removal of hoardings will be started from next week.”
