Hyderabad ban on beggars

The Hyderabad police on Wednesday issued an order prohibiting begging in the city for two months starting 06:00 am today.

The order issued by Hyderabad Police Commissioner M Mahendar Reddy comes ahead of the three-day eighth annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2017 which is expected to be attended by Prime Minister Modi and Ivanka Trump.

After the completion of the Global Summit, Hyderabad is also host for the five day World Telugu Conference. Thousands of Telugu Non Resident Indians (NRI) are expected to attend the conference which is scheduled to commence on Decmber 15.

”It has come to my notice, through the public that many beggars are begging for alms in an indecent manner. They are also employing children and handicapped persons to solicit or receive alms at the main junctions.

"Such acts are causing annoyance and awkwardness by exposing in an indecent manner to divert the attention of the vehicular traffic, as well as pedestrians and the public in general, to induce them to give alms", the police commissioner said.

According to a survey by voluntary organisations, the city has around 14000 beggars, including some 1500 children.
