JAMMU: The Division Bench of J&K High Court Comprising Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Sindhu Sharma issued notices to Jammu Municipal Corporation, Jammu Development Authority and others in a Public interest Litigation filed by two advocates Aditya Sharma and Ravi Sharma.Advocate Aditya Sharma appeared in person and submitted that in Jammu, there are illegal hoardings/ advertisements everywhere which are in clear violation of advertisement policy of JMC and even in terms of directions passed by the Apex Court. Petitioner further submitted that Flex (used for advertisement) is the main cause of pollution as the Flex, which is used for advertisement purpose, is not reusable and causing hazardous pollution.Petitioners also laid emphasis that Jammu Municipal Corporation on one hand is working on beautification of Jammu city but on another is acting as revenue generating agency and had made Jammu as ‘city of advertisements’. JMC has issued new tender in this regard and has left no stone unturned to install hoardings everywhere in Jammu city. It is pertinent to mention here that as per the advertisement policy of JMC, there are certain places where the advertisements/Hoardings are strictly restricted like Educational institutions, parks, religious places, heritage areas, etc but this policy has been openly violated by Jammu Municipal Corporation itself.The Division Bench of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Sindhu Sharma issued notices to JMC and other respondents to file reply in this petition. Notice on behalf of Jammu Municipal Corporation was accepted by Advocate Rajnish Raina.
