This Act applies with retroactive effect to 580 million BC.
There are two types of land: private and public. See The Land Act 21 October 2017
Each person has a right to ask Me for private space for him or herself and any family members.
I allocate 20 sq m per head of family plus 7 sq m for each additional family member, including pets, livestock etc.
You are free with the permission of each family member to keep private space as dirty as you and they like.
Obviously, if you have children under puberty or cattle, they are unable to express a reasonable opinion and any space I have allocated to them including toilet room and kitchen facilities must be kept clean.
See How to Clean a room on how to keep a room clean.
With public spaces, and private spaces belonging to other people, there are two aspects to cleanliness: harm and disturbance to tranquility of human beings.
Examples of actions relating to harm:
1. you leave dirty litter with food particles, bacteria etc. in a public place, and this leads to the spread of disease
2. you have a cat or cockroach or ant on your private property and they excrete or die or otherwise such that disease spreads onto a public place or someone else's property.
Examples of disturbance of tranquility:
1. you erect an electric or mobile or water python on a lovely natural beach and someone sees it
2. you drop litter on the ground and someone sees it.
Suppose, for example, someone goes to the beach every day for 10 years and you have erected an elecricity generating windmill on the beach without his permission.
Suppose, for example he looks at this windmill on 5 occassions each day, and on each occassion he sees it for 5 minutes.
Tranquility time is worth Rs 25,000 per hour and so you owe him Rs 365*10*5*5/60*25000, ie 380 lakhs rupees.
If you cannot afford it you will pay in pain.
