Mangaluru: Click photos, videos of garbage dumping, take home Rs 500


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Dec 5: Citizens can now win Rs 500 by clicking photographs of miscreants who dump garbage on roadsides and inside parks, and sending them to Kuppepadavu gram panchayat (GP) authorities. 

Kuppepadavu in the district of Dakshina Kannada has come up with a unique idea to teach a lesson to people who throw garbage wherever they want. The gram panchayat has come up with the offer of giving a cash prize of Rs 500 to anyone who gives information or sends a photo or video of a person throwing garbage in a public place.

This idea has become such a hit that throwing of garbage on roadsides is completely stopped. This decision was taken in the meeting that was held on October 28. While the person giving information wins Rs 500, a fine of Rs 1,000 will be slapped on the offender.

Speaking on the success of the idea, PDO Savita of Kuppepadavu gram panchayat said, “We had decided about this offer to control the menace of people throwing garbage everywhere. It is a huge success. The incident of garbage throwing has reduced considerably.”

    Have witnesssed ppl throwing garbage from cars in mlore... once i objected to it and the reply i got was to mind my business...so i dont think its socioeconomic factor... indians dont care about cleanliness as long their place is clean... mlore which was fairly clean a decade ago is turning out to be unclean...mushrooming apartments with no proper garbage disposal is only adding to the garbage problem... civic authorities need to be strict and also provide efficient garbage disposal system... and people need to be responsible... it may be biased opinion but i think native mlore ppl fairly keep the city clean ..cant say the same about ppl settling here... can't walk on many roads as its stained with pan spit... i really wish something is done about it

    Garbage has become a nuisance more so after the Swacch Bharat mission. There is more garbage visible on the highways and all along roads even in interior areas. Wonder whether Swacch Bharat means keeping roads clean or littering them even more!! Advising people on not littering is like shooting yourself in the foot. Garbage collection is not done in all panchayats in rural areas. People conveniently throw waste food, plastic and what not into rivulets and cause inconvenience to neighbours. Dogs feeding on wet waste make the scenario even more miserable. It might take decades before we see any change in the mentality of people.

    Government should implement strict rules on dumping garbage, spitting, urinating on streets/corners, Install dumping bins, employ more cleaning staff, supervisors, to monitor, introduce a fine of Rs. 10,000 for breaking the rules, if above does not work catch the culprit make him or her to Clean the streets, as a punishment ./ Community service, , for a period of 1 month at least , how does it sound !!!!!

    Clicking pic of any citizen without their permission is Illegle. As a civilized human being, no one need to tell about cleanliness, It should come from childhood from parents. When this is in place what is all this drama. Really Funny.

    Unfortunately it's not come from childhood or parents like you said, how long do you think someone should wait for people to be civilised, another 100 years maybe? I'm sorry my friend it'll too late then. We need to act now.

    Dr Alexander Dsouza, USA Throwing garbage in public places is bigger mistake than taking pictures without permission, Such peoples photos must be published in social platforms then only garbage management issues will be resolved.

    Dr,Alexander Dsouza USA what you say may be correct in case of taking fotos for other purposes.But when people go against the rules here someone must do something to catch the person doing illegal thrash to throw on road.Even in other countries it is allowed so long foto is used for govt.action not for private use.Othersode where should the citizens throw their waste?Is any container is kept from muncipality?When thrash is emptied on road a cause for infections ,mosquitoes so that should be avoided.not leaning back and wait till something happens.Food rest gives other birds or animals to come to human living vacanity.so they will not search food in wildnis but come to town like wild bores and spoil vegetation.

    My dear brother. do u think CCTV will last for 1 week. were there are people who are waiting for this type technology to be used and when they can steal it and sell it and have happy night with full on GANGASARA. Also putting CCTV will increase the bank account of the so called politician no civilian is benefited here. Giving 500 rupees as prize that's ok.. but y only 1000 for offenders... make it 10,000.
