The VC took a serious view of some violations made by the shopkeepers by even removing inner walls and fixing shutters without any permission from JDA.
The concerned were asked to seal all such establishments and remove the hoardings at once, if the shopkeepers fail to do so within week’s time. It was directed that JDA will allow a uniform board with specific size and paint for display of name of shop and any franchise and not the big hoardings which obstruct view and give ugly look.
