11. LET’S PROTECT THE PUBLIC PROPERTY
Public property are the things that belong to all of us in general.
Most of our people have not realized the value of public property. Misusing public property has become a national defect of the World.
First of all Let us look at our public taps. Most of the people do not turn off the taps after use. We waste a large quantity of water by this way.
Public libraries are step up by the government for the benefit of the people. Some people, including our school children are in the habit of rearing off and removing pages from library books. Some people scribble filthy words on public walls. Some students cut the seat covers while traveling in buses.
Some people scatter bits of papers everywhere in public parks. Pasting notices and advertisements. Everywhere in not allowed. But some unscrupulous persons paste them even on the walls of the government buildings and public wells.
Cubicles are erected at bus halting places by the transport authorities in order to provide shelter to the passengers. But some people spoil these cubicles by pasting various kinds of advertisements on their walls.
In government offices, Some officers use telephones to give nuisance calls. They never think that it is a waste of public funds. Maintaining the public property is the duty and responsibility of everyday.
Awareness programmers should be implemented in order to make the people aware of the importance of protecting the public property. Meanwhile the government should take steps to arrest the vandals and give them severe punishments.
Public property is property that is dedicated to public use and is a subset of state property. The term may be used either to describe the use to which the property is put, or to describe the character of its ownership (owned collectively by the population of a state). This is in contrast to private property, owned by an individual person or artificial entities that represent the financial interests of persons, such as corporations.State ownership, also called public ownership, government ownership or state property, are property interests that are vested in the state, rather than an individual or communities.
In the modern representative democracy, "public property" is said to be owned by the people as a commons or held in trust by the government for common benefit. In many Commonwealth realms, such property is said to be owned by the Crown. Examples include Crown land, Crown copyright, and Crown Dependencies.
In the Canada, The Public Debt and Property are under the exclusive Legislative Authority of the Parliament of Canada  rather than the Queen or the local authority, according to the Constitution Acts, 1867 and 1982, article 91.
