    There are GOVT officials for each work but no one is working as they paid hefty BRIBES to the POLITICIANS and not intend to work as public servants ! When the mood swings they visit the offices and disappear for their personal works !!! Who ask them and how you trace them for your job ! No one if ever you questioned them and then you will see the hell on earth created by the SARKARI BABU !! under your feet.

    The Udupi Municipality should simply penalise those who
    dump without a second thought, and not register a CASE against
    those irresponsible locals or outsiders who dump garbage,
    building construction waste, and tender coconut shells.

    First of all, there should be a Regulation Against Dumping
    with all the Laws and Penalties listed in Kannada/English
    and Hindi on large Blue background White all weather proof
    large lettering - so that people are aware that there is such a

    Thereafter, the Municipality should appoint responsible
    staff working directly under the Municipality and not a
    Third Party Contractor, who will be responsible for keeping
    a keen eye in all such locations and implementing the Lafor w
    firmly with a Penalty. Registering a CASE in India is a useless
    exercise taking into consideration the billions of cases filed
    and gathering dust with no judicial action.

    In Christian countries people have an attitude of responsibility
    towards their surroundings and country and do not indulge in
    dumping, for which the penalty is severe and instant.
