PCB Chief Executive Officer DN Yadav has been busy overseeing the paperwork related to the issuance of business closure notices to 12 prominent establishments of Pune cantonment area. He spoke to Nadeem Inamdar with respect to developments
Tell us about the violations and how many restaurants will be issued notices?
There are 12 eateries located on the important roads of Pune cantonment who have been found to have illegally used the defence land meant exclusively for residential purposes into commercial use.
The general body of PCB has given its assent to the proposal of sending notices to the said establishments and it would be dispatched very soon.
On whose directions has the decision been taken?
The board had received license renewal applications from 14 establishments which we had sent to the Defence Estates Office (DEO) for further action and their observations.
The DEO has flatly ordered against renewing the trade licenses to these twelve establishments as they have blatantly flouted the cantonment by-laws.
We are also considering legal options where prosecution under section 244 and 278 of the cantonment act, 2006 can be undertaken for these illegal business establishments.
Currently, what is the status of these business establishments?
The twelve business establishments are unauthorised and illegal. Tell us which law of the defence establishment says that they can utilise the land for commercial purpose. It has been proved beyond reasonable doubt that the establishments don’t have any commercial rights and their rights are limited only to residential use.
