As per NDTV report, chairman of Nisarg Heaven Society (NHS) Mitesh Bora while speaking with news agency ANI, said, “Around 98 per cent of the society members had passed the resolution to levy fine for feeding dogs in the society premises. Being the society‘s chairman, it is my duty to make members follow the rules framed by the majority of members.”
“These dogs are aggressive and they bark at senior citizens, kids and many others. There is a problem with hygiene too. The rule was made after receiving many complaints from the society members,” Bora said.
“I had an outstanding maintenance bill of Rs 3.60 lac till March, which also included Rs 75,000 monthly fine for feeding dogs. They have charged me Rs 2,500 per day for feeding dogs,” Neha Datwani said.
“In July 2018, the society slapped a fine of Rs 2,500. It went up to Rs 75,000 per month in June. Another member of the society Ketan Shah was also fined for Rs 7,500 in July and thereafter Rs 75,000 per month,” Datwani said.
“They are not stray dogs. They were born in the society premises. I have been taking care of them since their birth, but suddenly the society formed a committee which made a rule of imposing fine on members for feeding dogs. I am feeding dogs on humanitarian grounds,” said Datwani.
