The Directorate of Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EV and DM) wing of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has a huge task of collecting about Rs 110 crore in terms of pending challans and penalties that total to 198,250 for now.


The EV & DM departments had to provide the information after an RTI application was filed by city activist Robin Zaccheus. He had petitioned for details of e-challans and challans on violation of Flexi, advertisements, and hoarding boards under the GHMC limits.


Robin requested a year-wise break-up of the challans and the revenues, though the department provided consolidated data. While 9.93 crore has been paid as a penalty by users, the EV & DM is yet to get Rs 110 crore from challans.


Prior to the last elections, various political parties had put up flexis and hoarding in violation of the GHMC Act, and the challans and penalties were issued for the same. Recently, EV & DM slapped fines on several political parties. However, the activist got no reply if the political parties had paid the challans/ penalties. The department maintained that there was no separate information on the same.


According to Robin, the EV & DM department has to maintain separate data with regards to political parties as they caused rampant plastic pollution with flexis and hoardings. He pointed out that though MA&UD minister KTR spoke of banning plastic menace due to flexis and hoardings, nothing much was done post his speech.


Robin says KTR had once said – “none can become a leader by putting up their flexis; it is by winning hearts of people.” But surely the TRS party, which KTR belongs to, seems to be violating the norm as all events of the TRS party have an overdose of flexis and hoardings. So was the case on the day of KCR’s recent birthday, says Robin. He adds that challans are issued based on ‘nameplates,’ and the EV department has no response with regards to such cases.
