3. Types of Tolerance Zone
All the tolerance zones have been broadly classified into 3 different categories
- Zero Tolerance Zones (ZTZ) is central business areas of a city where urban entropy has made the law enforcement a challenging for the departments. To ensure uniform regulations, annual inspections and/or surveys are carried out on shop-to-shop & house-to-house basis by the departments i.e. Urban Local Bodies, Commercial Taxes, Electricity, Labour and Weights & Measure for periodic corrective/penal actions as a part of effective implementation of rule of law.
- Extended Zero Tolerance Zones (EZTZ) are the zones extended beyond the ZTZ without compromising the concept of ZTZ. Some departments like Excise, Drug & Food need to cover the entire town on monthly basis to ensure that all licensed units are functioning as per the laid down norms.
- Intensive Zero Tolerance Zones (IZTZ) focuses on the busiest road of the town and deals with the problems leading to traffic chaos. Designated daily duty officers from ULB, Traffic Police & Revenue wing will be looking at the issues of illegal parking, Illegal vending (both static & mobile) and illegal encroachment on daily basis to deal with potential violators.
