bmc-shop-2The MCGM launched its drive against shops that did not have signboards written in Marathi. Officials had cracked down on 1,061 shops. The highest number of violations, 72, was found in Goregaon. Mulund brought up the rear with just 15 violations. No incident of protest by shop owners was reported as around 110 inspectors from the MCGM’s shops and establishment department went about doing their job. The respective wards will start issuing notices to the shops. If these are not complied with, then the owners will be dragged to court, where they can be fined between Rs 1,000 and Rs 5,000. The MCGM deadline for shops to put up Marathi signboards expired on Thursday. Officials, however, said the civic body may not have the manpower and machinery to crack down on offenders.
