The Abu Dhabi City Municipality has launched a campaign to crack down on landlords installing illegal satellite TV dishes atop roofs of buildings in the Musaffah industrial area on the outskirts of the UAE’s capital city.
The civic authorities have launched an aggressive social media campaign to spread awareness about the importance of preserving the look and feel of Abu Dhabi by restricting the number of satellite dishes atop homes, buildings, warehouses, and other residential, commercial, and industrial establishments.
Residents have also been urged not to put up dishes on their balconies, as the act is considered a penal offence.
The latest awareness campaign is targeting satellite dish owners, investors, and community members in industrial and residential areas to safeguard the aesthetic look and feel of Abu Dhabi.
The campaign is circulating on various social media platforms. The civic authorities have urged residents to comply with regulations, which were introduced in 2015 that led to a blanket ban on illegal satellite TV dishes.
Any individual found to violate the rule faces a fine of Dh2,000 and also legal action, they added.
