Legal action will be taken on denial
BMC Deputy Commissioner Sanjog Kabre said that whether shops and establishments are putting up boards in Marathi or not, inspection will be done in each ward. There are 75 inspectors for this. Apart from this, another officer will also be present with him. If the shopkeeper refuses to put up Marathi board during the inspection, then court action will be taken against him. If the shopkeeper wants to avoid the court proceedings, he will have to pay a fine. Under this, a penalty of Rs 2,000 will be charged per person employed in the shop.
