Illegal waste will now be given a legal fine

Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority has begun an initiative to tackle illegal waste in the city

In a move to improve sanitation, the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA), has begun an on-the-spot challan system. This will be done through point-of-sale (POS) machines for illegal waste disposal within the city.

The authorities and HDFC Bank have joined hands to facilitate fines paid through POS machines, where a slip will be provided to the offender.

Salil Yadav, the Deputy General Manager of Public Health Department, GNIDA said, “We are the first authority in the country that will impose fines for unattended garbage using the point of sale machines. This challan system will eliminate the hassle of generating a manual challan and updating it in our records.”

These POS machines will be with the public health department of the authority and will be used by their teams during their routine sanitation inspections across the city.
