PSUs and corporates can adopt roads, streets, flyovers, bus stops, telephone booths, parking lots, water/electricity distribution lines, transformers and parks for their regular upkeep, cleanliness and maintenance. Street lighting is a neglected area which can be looked after by them. For that they can be compensated by naming roads after their names and giving rebate in taxes as a lot of money goes for the maintenance. This will enhance their goodwill besides improving the civic infrastructure.
