The Bombay High Court Thursday directed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to remove all illegal hoardings, banners and advertisements installed by political parties without permission, before the upcoming civic elections. The court has also directed political parties and its members to print on the hoarding/poster/banner the permission number and the duration for which the permission has been obtained from the civic body.
