Supreme Court bans hoardings in Chennai
Wednesday, April 9, 2008 (New Delhi): The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the Madras High Court's order, banning illegal and hazardous hoardings in Tamil Nadu.
Following this decision, Chennai will soon have a skyline free of hoardings.
The apex court turned down the hoarding owners' plea and around 80,000 such hoardings in the state will be affected by this judgement.
Over 2000 hoardings were removed in Chennai during November 2006 and currently, around 3000 applications for hoarding licences are pending with the state government.
