MCD plans to stop sale of cut fruits from next month
New Delhi: Aiming to prevent water-borne diseases in pre-monsoon season, the MCD plans a crackdown on vendors selling cut fruits from next month.
"We will ensure that sale of cut fruits is stopped fromApril 1 as these are unhygienic and can aid spread of various diseases. The civic body will take action to prevent sale of
cut fruits and remove encroachment on footpaths by vendors," a senior MCD official said today.
Meanwhile, the MCD said it will act against illegal encroachments on pavements in the city.
The Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) has issued directions to all land-owning agencies and the police to remove all kinds of encroachments and create walking space for pedestrians in the national capital.
"We have already started taking action against encroachers. The building department of Karol Bagh zone yesterday removed encroachments and merged 1500 sq ft of land
with the existing adjoining footpath on Dr Krishnan Marg that runs from Pusa roundabout to New Rajinder Nagar," an official said.
