Tk1,308,590 was collected through 32 spot auctions

Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam on Monday announced that DNCC will launch campaigns and conduct spot auctions once a week to free the sidewalks without prior notice from now on.

He made the announcement while leading a daylong drive to clear the footpaths and roads in various parts of DNCC by removing illegal construction materials, shops, and installations.

A total of 32 spot auctions were held in 10 areas of DNCC through which, Tk1,308,590 was collected and an additional Tk645,000 was collected as fines from the owners of illegal constructions.

A total of 1,200 illegal establishments, shops, sheds, etc. were evicted during the drive.

"I have said before that there will be simultaneous raids in 10 areas of DNCC throughout the day. It is normal that people will construct huge buildings but they are leaving bricks, sand, and rods on the roads and sidewalks ignoring the law. [As a result] sidewalks are shrinking,” said the DNCC Mayor.

He mentioned that similar drives will take place again soon. "I would like to warn that from today [Monday] onwards, such campaigns will be carried out one day a week," he said.

Atiqul Islam also urged everyone to put up signboards and billboards after paying taxes to the city corporation.

“Signboards and billboards are everywhere in different parts of Dhaka city. No one is taking any permission for them. I request you, you can put up a signboard by paying its tax to city corporation,” he said.

DNCC Mayor warned that the removal of signboards and billboards put up without permission will start from September 14.
