Law to Penalize Littering: Venkaiah Naidu

  • The Centre is considering imposing a fine on those littering in public places, said Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu. Mr. Naidu said the government would consider framing legislation similar to the one in Singapore, where hefty fines were imposed for spitting and throwing waste by the roadside.
  • The government was providing funds for construction of toilets in houses and improve infrastructure for solid waste management. Once this is completed, fines will start to be imposed.
