Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has warned the people residing near Marine Drive to clean the excrement of their pets from the promenade or pay a fine of Rs. 500.

According to reports, the BMC has decided to deploy clean-up marshals along the 3.5-km stretch of Marine Drive promenade from 7am to 10 am and 4 pm to 7 pm.

 

Initially, the marshals would create awareness among the pet owners in the area. They would ask the pet owners to not let them to poop on the promenade. But if it does, the owner would have to clean it up.

The BMC would impose the fine only if people do not abide by the instructions despite warnings and leave behind their pet’s poops on the promenade.

The BMC took the initiative after locals complained about spotting pet poop at several places on the promenade when they jog.

Pet owners and some Marine Drive residents have welcomed the move.
