Mangaluru, Oct 19, 2020: The MESCOM has restored power supply to the Central Market building as per the request made by the Central Market Merchants Association. This move has facilitated traders to carry out business at the Market Building. As of now 33 licensed merchants can carry out their business at the market building as they have already submitted the requisite documents to the City Corporation.
The City Corporation had earlier snapped power supply to the building after the traders were asked to function at the Baikampady APMC yard during the lockdown.
Meanwhile water supply to the Central Market building is yet to be restored. So far 33 merchants have renewed licenses and they will be allowed to carry out business at the Market building, Mayor Diwaker Pandeshwar has said.
The City Corporation move comes after the High Court allowed those merchants who earlier operated from here, to carry on their business in the building.
