Islamabad, Aug 17 (IANS) Anyone caught littering would now have to pay a fine in this Pakistani capital.
A rule framed in 2008 was put in force Tuesday.
Dawn said that littering would lead to an on-the-spot minimum fine of Rs.50.
Islamabad has become the first city in Pakistan to have an anti-littering provision.
“A person or persons violating the anti-littering law can be fined up to Rs.300 on the spot,” Imtiaz Inayat Elahi, a senior official, was quoted as saying.
An anti-littering force, comprising 25 personnel, has been formed.
“A neat and clean environment is the sign of a healthy and civilised society and we can achieve this goal by keeping our houses, streets, sectors and surroundings clean and neat,” said Elahi.
