All Bark And No Crap

Residents of Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh now face a stark choice: either be prepared to pay a fine of up to Rs 5,000 under the Municipality Cleanliness and Sanitation Act, or don’t take your pet dog out to defecate in the open.  The Jabalpur municipal corporation (JMC) issued a circular to this effect on October 11. Municipal corporation commissioner Ved Prakash was quoted in the press as saying, “The JMC has decided to impose penalty on the pet dog owners, whose can­ines are found littering in public places. We have issued a circular in this regard. Our field staff have been directed to keep a watch on the pet dog owners. The obj­ective behind the move was to keep the city clean.” Another municipal corporation in the state was in the national news earlier when it fined a rural family Rs 75,000 (Rs 500 per member per month) for defecating in the open.
