Renewal of trade licences goes online

 The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has made renewal of trade licences in City online. 

Mayor B S Satyanarayana on Monday launched the online trade licence renewal system at Palike’s Malleswaram Centre. People can log on to http://bbmp.gov.in/trade to get their trade licenses renewed and get more information.

Satyanarayana said this system would reduce dependence on health inspectors and revenue inspectors to get licence renewed every year.

He hailed the initiatives taken by health committee members for bringing in a transparent system of renewing trade licences which will generate revenue for BBMP. He chided Palike officers for issuing trade licences to only 55,000 traders although the City has seven lakh shopkeepers.

“Bescom connections and list of those paying Value Added Tax (VAT) show that there are seven lakh traders but, Palike officers show that only 55,000 traders do business in Bangalore,” he said asking Palike health inspectors why they were lax in discharging their duties. 

Commissioner M Lakshminarayana said BBMP is recognised for its initiatives based on information technology and the current launch was a step in that direction. Following the launch, few traders got their trade licences renewed.
