Puducherry: Puducherry Administration has banned with immediate effect erection of cutouts, banners, posters and other advertisement placards in the Union Territory.

The ban would be implemented in letter and spirit, Local Administration Minister A Namassivayam informed the territorial Assembly today in response to vociferous demands from opposition AIADMK and CPI in this regard.

Welfare Minister M Kandasamy said there was definitely a need for the ban as presently one could see row of cutouts and other display materials.

Home and Health Minister E Valsaraj said the beauty of Puducherry should be retained. He said in bigger states like Rajasthan there was no display of cutouts or banners. 'Why can't a smaller state like Puducherry emulate this' he asked.

Namassivayam said said even if licences were sanctioned already (for putting up banners) they would be scrapped immediately.
