Punitive measures, in a pluralistic democracy, may not find many takers, but that only seemd to be te short=term solution. In the long run, as more and more people follow better conditions at home, they will appreciate the virtues of cleanliness.

Clearly this seems like a timid attempt to mark-up rentals in Connaught Place. The present rentals range from INR 1200 to 2000 per sq feet per annum, which translates to about USD 22 to 36 per sq feet per annum. Even this considered high given the quality, level of business and returns.
