Author: Ankita Karn (REVA University, Bangalore)

Bombay High Court has lamented the dichotomy of people keeping their homes very clean while littering garbage outside them.

The Bombay High Court on Monday (July 8, 2019) lamented the dichotomy of people keeping their homes very clean but they litter the garbage outside.

The bench of Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice Nitin Jamdar stated that “Individually we are very clean, but collectively there is so much dirtiness”.

The court observed on this after a Public Interest Litigation was filed on traffic congestion in market areas of South Bombay including Crawford Market.

The bench further added that homes in jhuggis (slum) are neat and clean from inside and are well kept, but outside them, the scene is very horrible. The CJ added that Posh (Housing) are also the same there is no difference.

Earlier, Government pleader Poornima Kantharia said that action must be taken against illegally parked vehicles. She further added that “The authorities have taken steps necessary against violations and are regulating the same”.

Senior Advocate Beni Chatterji representing BMC said it was doing whatever was best to remove encroachments and providing parking spaces.
