Kolkata: Fine for littering in the Dakshineswar Skywalk Rs 1,000 per case to strengthen the cleanness of Dakshineswar skywalk. The recommendations — made by temple authority also suggest allowing local authorities to challan individuals caught littering on the spot, and imposing heavy fines for “creating littering nuisance” in the Skywalk. Recently two days of it’s inauguration the Skywalk walls and stairs were noticed with red splatters of Gutka.
