Delhiites need permission to put up political posters: Court

The Delhi High Court said Thursday the city`s residents can put up political posters at their homes but with prior permission from authorities.



New Delhi: The Delhi High Court said Thursday the city`s residents can put up political posters at their homes but with prior permission from authorities.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice RS Endlaw upheld the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property (DPDP) Act which was used by the then Congress government in 2013 to restrain people from putting up Aam Aadmi Party posters at their homes.

The court said people who are willing to put posters would require prior permission from the city`s civic bodies.

The court`s order came on plea filed by AAP supporters against the government decision.
