Mangaluru, July 23, 2019: In a drive against unauthorised paying guest (PG) accommodations, Puttur CMC commissioner Roopa Shetty conducted a raid on July 22, Monday.
During the verification of documents, it was found that three PG accommodations had not renewed their licenses and two had not availed permission from the Puttur CMC, where they are located.
There are over 50 PG accommodations functioning in Puttur, of which, only seven have availed licenses from the CMC. The PG accommodations were functioning in houses in Nehru Nagara area.
Each PG accommodation had 10 to 12 students. There was a lack of basic facilities in these accommodations. The guidelines were not followed in preparing food and there was a lack of cleanliness, said the Commissioner.
The commissioner served notices to PG accommodations for functioning illegally. Notices will be serviced to all the unauthorised PG accommodations. The functioning of unauthorised PG accommodations will be brought to the notice of police as well, she added. It is time for a proper regulation of PG establishments now.
