In a move to address environmental concerns in Udaipur, the District Environment Committee, led by District Collector Arvind Kumar Poswal, convened a meeting at the District Collectorate Auditorium. The meeting, held on Friday, February 23, 2024, saw important decisions being made to curb various environmental challenges plaguing the city.

One of the key decisions taken was to prohibit food stalls operating at Sukhadia Circle and Fateh Sagar from using disposable items without their shop’s stickers. This measure aims to tackle the issue of littering caused by disposable cups in these popular areas.

Moreover, a dress code for street vendors selling food and beverages in these zones will be implemented, adding a sense of uniformity and hygiene standards. In addition to waste management measures, the committee decided to install dustbins at various tourist locations across the city.

The meeting also delved into broader environmental issues, including discussions on controlling the influx of panthers on roads and managing the population of stray dogs.

Discussions were held on development plans around Udaipur's Menar Talab, focusing on initiatives such as installing pillars, developing islands, and removing water hyacinth to preserve its ecological significance.

Furthermore, the committee emphasized promoting e-rickshaws under the National Clean Air Program as an alternative to construction activities. This initiative not only aims to provide employment opportunities to unemployed youth but also contributes to environmental sustainability by reducing air pollution.

Lastly, concerns were raised about the forceful flattening and cutting of hills around the city by land developers. In response, the committee decided to urge the Udaipur Development Authority (UDA) to impose a ban on converting sloping hills into residential colonies. 

With these proactive measures and initiatives, the District Environment Committee is poised to address environmental challenges effectively, ensuring a greener and cleaner future for Udaipur.
