Bombay High Court Issues Stern Warning Against Illegal Hoardings, Urges Public Cooperation

In a recent development, the Bombay High Court has expressed strong disapproval of the proliferation of illegal hoardings and banners on trees, sidewalks, and streetlights, urging citizens to refrain from engaging in or encouraging such activities. Senior judges from the High Court emphasized the collective responsibility of the public to remain vigilant and avoid behaviors that contribute to the placement of unlawful signage, which poses risks to pedestrians and other road users.

The judges underlined that corrective measures should be implemented both at the public level and by municipal corporations and the state government. It is explicitly illegal for any individual, political party, business entity, or religious institution to utilize public spaces like streets, sidewalks, or street lights for commercial purposes or personal gain. The judges expressed incredulity at the audacity of groups hanging banners from streetlights.

In response to the concerns raised by the High Court, a senior BMC advocate clarified that BMC guidelines strictly prohibit the temporary display of banners, posters, or other signs on public roads and walkways. Permission for displaying advertisements is granted exclusively on private property.
