In previous cases, the BMC was not able to take action against clean-up marshals despite complaints as there were no set rules. However, when the number of complaints started increasing, the BMC decided to bring in new rules in order to take action against the clean-up marshal contractors, informed Vishwas Shankarwar, Deputy Municipal Commissioner from the Solid Waste Management (SWM) department.

He added that clean-up marshal contractors will be blacklisted if more than three complaints are received against them. Apart from this, if the area designated for clean-up marshals are found littered, then marshals will face action.
