The ongoing sealing drive in Delhi has now turned towards Meharchand Market in Lodhi Colony.
On Wednesday, January 10th the basements and upper floors of at least 130 shops in the south Delhi market were shut by authorities for violation of municipal laws.
As many as 135 out of the 153 shops in the market were found violating the established norms.
The shops that were targeted on Wednesday included boutiques, clothing stores and eateries. Some of the establishments that were partially sealed included Nicobar, Subway, Cafe Coffee Day, Artesenia, Truefill & Hill Salon, Diva Spiced, Liquid Sanctuary, Fab India and Ruh.
The State Bank of India and Dena Bank branches, both located in the market, were given few days to wind up their operation.
The sealing drive is being carried out at the direction of the Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee and three members of the panel — KJ Rao, Bhure Lal and Major General (Retd) Som Jhingan — accompanied by the municipal teams.
With all our favourite markets being shut down one after the other, we wonder where we will go shopping!
