The grain market association on Monday submitted a representation to the UT finance secretary and adviser to oppose an estate office's decision to clear the space in front of SCFs, which is part of land allotted to the owners of shops.
The members of the association said that as per allotment letters of SCFs in the grain market, Sector 26, and control sheets prepared by the UT urban planning department, the open platform in front of the shops was their property and used for auction. Stacking bags of grains, pulses, cereals, and other products in front of the shop do not amount to “misuse” or “violation”, they said.
The association submitted a study report and a proposal prepared by architect Vinod Joshi to give a new look to the Sector-26 grain market. In the representation, the association submitted a request for allowing changes in the market.
