Corporation officials on Friday made surprise visits to public places across the five zones of the city and imposed fine amounting to Rs 1500 on those who were defecating in the open.
The visit follows orders from Corporation Commissioner Dr. K. Vijayakarthikeyan, who had earlier advised the public to use public toilets if they do not have one at home.
The officials collected a fine of Rs 1500 from those who were attending to nature’s call in the open. The Corporation, along with Clean India Movement, has been involved in spreading awareness on using toilets.
