MCC trade license drive nets Rs 57,000

The drive led by in-charge health officer M V Sudha collected Rs 57,000 in the form of both fee and renewal fee on the spot,by inspecting nearly 100 shops.

Initially, some among the traders protested the demand for on the spot renewal, only to budge later. Some amount of banned plastic (below 40 micron thickness) was also seized during the drive. The city corporation for the past one month has been holding the drive collecting huge penalty from the traders on D Devaraj Urs Road, Sayyaji Rao Road and the surroundings of Gandhi Square.

A few shops were also sealed as the owners refused to renew the licence citing some reasons. Strangely, one of the shopkeepers on D D Urs road preferred to close business over renewal of licence, pending since past five years.
