Those who Spit in Public Areas to be charged with fine NDMC

On Thursday, 2nd July 2020 New Delhi Municipal Council launched a special initiative against people spitting in public places and not following the lockdown norms. The council has introduced 10 civic wardens who can issue fines up to Rs 1000 at Connaught Place, Khan Market, Bengali Market, Janpath, and other places.

The council stated that NDMC had earlier issued a notification regarding imposing fines for spitting in public places and now the process has started. The civic wardens will also spread awareness and educate the public about the ill effects of spitting and urinating in public places. 

The civic wardens will be given uniforms along with a logo of NDMC. 

The official further stated The wardens have been provided POS machines that will also have the e-payment option. If the violator cant pay the fine, they will be produced before the special municipal magistrate for action.

It is also planned further that the second initiative will cover parks, gardens, and other public places by mid-July.
