SMC cancels 2 trade licences at Suthra Shahi for violations

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Nov 20: The Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) has cancelled the trade licenses of two business establishments operating in the Suthra Shahi area, following complaints from the locals.
According to an order issued by the SMC’s Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), it has been stated that complaints have been received regarding the nuisance and traffic problems created by their trade, making their trade registration/license liable to be cancelled.
“On the basis of complaints against the commercial activities faced by the locals of the areas, the competent authority has issued a sealing order for sealing the commercial structures running in a residential area,” the order states.
The aforementioned fact, the CRO stated, has been consciously suppressed by the holders of the trade license while seeking renewal of the license, which, it said, demonstrates malafide intentions to defraud the corporation.
“Further, you have also failed to disclose that there are two writ petitions pending adjudication before the Higher Court of J&K regarding the sealing order.”
The order further states that the holders have also violated the terms and conditions of the renewed Trade License under clauses 15 and 18, which tantamount to the cancellation of the trade registration without notice.
The holders of the now-cancelled trade registrations have been named in the order as Nazir Ahmad Dar S/o Late Muhammad Ramzan Dar, under plate No. D-0311, and Sheikh Shabir Ahmad S/o Sheikh Ghulam Rasool under plate no E-812 both issued 10-12-2014.
