The municipal corporation (MC) will start round the clock Night Food Street at Sector 14 from March 1.

The MC had already allotted kiosks at the rate of Rs 50,000 per month for one year, extendable up to three years.

Joint municipal commissioner Rajeev Gupta said, “The night food street will be made operational 24x7 from March 1.”

On December 21, the finance and contracts committee allowed the night food street to operate on round-the-clock basis.

He said, “Kiosks will be used only for selling fast food, Indian, Chinese, continental and south Indian and other food-related items, such as juices and cold drinks. It has also been decided to restrict the sale of non-vegetarian food.”

The kiosks will have to pay a licence fee of Rs 50,000 annually to operate. On December 5, the Punjab and Haryana high court had asked the administration to explore the possibility of setting up more night food streets in the city.
