The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has failed to curb the increasing number of illegal banners of various political parties and private companies in the federal capital. According to details, displaying of illegal banners is on the rise without registration with the CDA causing loss of millions of rupees to the authority besides affecting the beauty of the federal capital.

CDA officials and operation teams have turned a blind eye toward the illegal practice. Concerned officials when contacted said that strict actions are taken against illegal banners adding that 30-40 challans are daily issued in this regard. It merits mentioning here that despite claims of drive against the illegal banners, their number is increasing instead of decreasing.
