Dhaka, Dec 26 (Just News): Dhaka North City Corporation on Tuesday cancelled trade licences of six coaching centres being operated in the capital's Farmgate area.
The centres were punished not for following the authorities' order to remove illegal signboards, posters, and festoons.
The coaching centres that were stripped off licences are University Coaching Centre (UCC), UniAid, Icon, Icon Plus, Omega and Paragon Coaching Centre.
"The six coaching centres had long been continuing outdoor publicity using billboards, graffiti, brochures, banners and posters, in violation of Graffiti and Poster Campaign Control Act," the chief revenue officer of DNCC, Rabindrasri Barua, told this to a national daily.
The DNCC officer said they requested the authorities of the coaching centres to remove all such advertisements. But, they did not comply with the official order, he added.
The city corporation's waste management department earlier requested the coaching centres to remove the illegal advertisements.
