A joint delegation of the Chandigarh Beopar Mandal (CBM) and Tent Dealers Society called on UT adviser Dharam Pal on Friday to set up a warehousing complex in Sector 38 West and Industrial Area, Phase 3.

They said the complex was needed for city-based entrepreneurs and tent dealers who could not afford expensive commercial units for warehousing of goods.

CBM president Charanjiv Singh informed the adviser that the provisions for a Warehousing Complex were part of Chandigarh Master Plan-2031.

MC councillor Jasbir Singh Bunty, who is president of the Tent Dealers Society, said since no commercial building in the city allowed storage of tenting and catering goods, many tent dealers had been forced to shift to other parts of the tricity.

CBM patron Diwakar Sahoonja also appealed to the adviser to withdraw all pending penalty cases and notify need-based changes before finalising rationalised penalty rates for misuse and building violations in the city.

The adviser, after the discussions, gave directions to the UT finance secretary to initiate work on a Warehousing Complex on priority. He also assured the delegation to take up the traders’ issues with the Union home ministry.
