However, the MC allowed them to run till March 31 and took a fee of Rs 8.5 lakh per vend. There are 12 such vends running on MC land.
While nine of them are in Zone B, one is in Zone C and two in Zone A. Action is still pending against seven vends in Zone-B and one in Zone C but since they are not located on the highway, the MC is re-considering its decision on their allotment.
In Zone-B, action is pending on the vends situated on Metro road, near Aarti Steels, two in Focal Point, one in Gobindgarh village near Dhandari and one in Transport Nagar. The MC has now risen from its slumber as these vends have been operational for the past three-five years but no action was taken till now.
Talking to Newsline, Mayor Harcharan Singh Gohalwaria said, “As per excise rules, we had to remove vends facing the national highway, and those have been removed. But now we are considering giving relief to those in the interiors as MC is getting revenue from them. If not our land, they will open at some other place so we are in discussions with excise officials. A decision on pending eight vends will be taken soon. If they are allowed to run, they have to deposit a fee of Rs 8.5 lakh each as per rules.”
