Action to regulate grip stores

Pondicherry: Draft rules are being prepared to regulate market stalls owned by the Pondicherry Municipality.

The rule is that such allotted shops should not be transferred without the knowledge of the municipality. However, the municipality does not know who owns these shops, which were allotted many years ago, and who owns them today.

It was ensured that the municipality would pay less rent and charge several times more rent. Following this, draft rules were being prepared to regulate the shops in all the markets owned by the Pondicherry Municipality. These draft rules are to be made available to the public soon.

How to bid anymore

The shops owned by the municipality are now held as hereditary property. It can no longer be kept like that.11 month lease will be auctioned electronically. If the lease is completed, it can be renewed twice more for 11 months by raising the rent by 10 per cent per annum. It can be renewed for a maximum of 10 years. The license can no longer be transferred to others without the knowledge of the municipality. Similarly, a scheme is being introduced to retain shops by paying a minimum of Rs 2 lakh to Rs 10 lakh to municipal shops.
