Dhaka, 27 Dec, Abnews: Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) on Tuesday has revoked trade licences of six coaching centres being operated in the capital's Farmgate area for not taking down their billboards, posters, banners, and signboards despite warnings.
The coaching centres that were stripped off licences are University Coaching Centre (UCC), UniAid, Icon, Icon Plus, Omega and Paragon Coaching Centre.
The DNCC said in a media statement on Tuesday that the licences have been cancelled under the City Corporation (Taxation) Rules 1986.
The six coaching centres had long been continuing outdoor publicity using billboards, graffiti, brochures, banners and posters, in violation of Graffiti and Poster Campaign Control Act, said chief revenue officer of DNCC, Rabindrasri Barua.
The final decision to cancel their licences came since they refused to comply, he added.
The city corporation's waste management department earlier requested the coaching centres to remove the illegal advertisements.
