BMC to recruit clean-up marshals with HSC qualification

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to appoint educated clean-up marshals from 2018 after receiving complaints of misconduct. The civic body will recruit only those clean-up marshals who cleared the 12th-grade exam. 

According to the BMC officials, the educated marshals will be able to communicate in a better way and will be able to create awareness among masses. Until now, there were no qualification criteria for recruitment.

The civic body had appointed around 30 marshals for every ward who were asked to collect a maximum fine up to ₹10,000 for serious offenses but as complaints started pouring in, BMC chief Ajoy Mehta ordered to remove them from the tourist spots.

A senior official from the Solid Waste Management department told Mumbai Mirror,

There were a lot of complaints against marshals. The duty of a marshal is to tell people not to litter. Only if they don’t listen, can he fine. To communicate with people, marshals should have some basic education.”

The said changes will be made in the new contracts which will be issued next year and the new contracts will be awarded after the tenure of the current contract ends in June 2018.
