The ignored violations in Smart City (Municipal) area

Junglighat is a prime location for tuition centres in Port Blair which is also known for lengthy and heavy traffic jam area in the evening hours daily. Hundreds of students are passing through footpath every day, how risky it would be, if the students walk on those roads instead of footpaths. The owner of Classic Traders has blocked the footpath area and forces the pedestrians to walk on roads.   One could observe, the owner of newly established Toyota Showroom at Garacharma left no space for pedestrians to walk at a safe side of the road but forced to walk on the heavy traffic road by putting lives of pedestrians at risk. PBMC is keeping a blind eye on various violations committed by the owner of the structure. Who will take the responsibility? Who will release the ex-gratia relief, if any accident occurs? Is the common man’s life that cheaper?
