The Municipal Corporation on Tuesday allotted two kiosks at the Night Food Street through draw of lots. Two of the four kiosks at the food street were lying vacant for some time.
While one of the kiosks that had been allotted would serve North Indian food,the other kiosk will serve Chinese food.
As many as 70 applications were received for the North Indian food kiosk and 29 for Chinese food kiosk. The rent for the kiosks will be Rs 25,000 per month.
The attempts of the civic body to revive the Night Food Street are not bearing the desired results. The once popular food street has fallen on bad days. Even though the number of kiosks was changed from eight to four,with two kiosks being combined to provide more space,the response has not been too encouraging.
With the allotment of kiosks,it is expected that the food street will witness a revival. It was started with the aim to provide food at reasonable prices to the attendants of PGI patients and PU students.
The draw of lots was held in the presence of councillors Major D S Sandhu Poonam Sharma and MC officers.
