Expressing concern over sanitation problem in Dimapur city, Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC) has called upon the citizens of Dimapur to contribute joint efforts in promoting civic sense. A DMC press note while informing that it was planning to take up new initiatives for beautification of the city, stated such initiatives could not be accomplished without the public’s co-operation with the municipal body. According to DMC, many residents of Dimapur inculcated irresponsible and unhealthy habit of dumping wastes/garbage haphazardly, adding that such activities were leading to “major problem that DMC is finding extreme difficulty to deal with.” DMC claimed some citizens, rather than throwing wastes/garbage into DMC designated bins, dumped them into drainage, thereby blocking drains. It also alleged that drains in Dimapur have become very narrow, chocking free flow of water, owing to rampant encroachment. It voiced concern that narrow drains blocked with garbage could lead to severe inundation coupled with outbreak of disease. Council further expressed dismay that many households were hesitant to pay its sanitary tax of Rs.10 per month. Pointing that throwing of garbage without following civic body instructions was an offence, DMC cautioned anyone found dumping garbage randomly would be penalized.
