The marshals are working for the expired period.!!
Marshals worked with the Corona Warriors when everyone was at home because of the Corona epidemic. He was hired by BBMP in 2018. At that time, these marshals were doing the work of identifying the black spots where people littered on the roads and fined the people.
And then when Corona came, Indira was also handling the responsibility of putting fines on masks, taking care of the Covid centers, keeping the crowds from gathering in the markets and also taking care of the canteens. But many months have passed since his tenure ended and only BBMP is continuing.
1 Crore cost to BBMP every month for maintenance of marshals.!!
Yes, BBMP marshals were recruited for a limited period of one year. Now that his tenure has ended, Marshall’s work continues. At present, 437 marshals are working and BBMP is spending one crore every month for their maintenance. At present, plastic ban and masks are being imposed and people who litter on the road are being monitored.
25 thousand salary is fixed for each marshals. At present Marshalls is collecting only 7 lakhs of fees every month and the maintenance cost is higher than the income. Thus, the public is protesting that BBMP has spent over one crore and kept it in the organization itself.
Field marshals are white birds for BBMP.!!
BBMP Joint Commissioner Parashuram was questioned about this, so we did not hire marshals only for a fee. After hiring them, littering blocks have reduced. Earlier, there were 150% of black spots for dumping garbage. Now it has come down to 70%. Marshalls play a very important role in building a clean Bangalore. The term of his appointment has expired.
But we got an order from the government to continue them, we have made an order at the BBMP level and continued the work of the marshals, he said. Overall, it has been five years since the marshals started working under BBMP. But the marshals continue to fail to make the city a garbage-free city, and BBMP’s coffers are also getting drained.
