The city’s civic body has announced that the punishment includes cleaning the spit beside levying a fine on offenders.
According to NDTV report, Pune Municipal Corporation’s (PMC) officer Dnyaneshwar Molak said, the decision was taken after authorities found that only monetary fine was not adequate to check the menace of spitting in the city.
The report said that the initiative was launched last week in five wards of Bibwewadi, Aundh, Yerawada, Kasba and Ghole Road.
“In the last eight days, PMC sanitation inspectors caught around 156 people while they were spitting on streets. All of them were made to clean their spit immediately and a fine of Rs. 150 was imposed on each of them,” said the official.
