MCC asks MUDA not to permit coop outlets

A lack of understanding between two different government agencies is evident in a letter written by the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) to Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) asking not to provide space for outlets of the cooperative societies and government departments.

The letter from MCC commissioner states that the MUDA should not permit establishment of outlets of the Horticultural Producers’ Cooperative Marketing and Processing Society (HOPCOMS), Nandini Milk Units of the Karnataka Milk Federation and fish stalls of the Fisheries department on its properties in the city.

The MCC letter is based on a government circular, that the government properties should be allotted to outlets through auction. MCC Commissioner K H Jagadeesh said that the MCC has written to MUDA to follow the auction procedure, while allotting space for the outlets.

MUDA Commissioner P K Kantharaju said, after the MCC forwarded the letter, MUDA has not allotted any space for outlets of HOPCOMS, Nandini Milk and Fisheries department.Meanwhile, there are several outlets on footpaths, violating the guidelines of the High Court.
