In the wake of intensifying sealing drive by the monitoring committee in Delhi and Supreme Court deferring the matter of Master Plan ammendments to February 2019, the Confederation of All India Traders In a communication sent to Union Urban Development Minister Shri Hardeep Puri has demand demailed promulgation of an Ordinance to protect Delhi from sealing .The CAIT has also called for a one time amnesty scheme which means status quo should me maintained as on 31st December 2017 and violations if any should be condoned by levying certain reasonable charges.
The CAIT has sent a similar separate communication to Union Home Shri Rajnath Singh calling for his immediate interference in the matter of give an Ordinance.
To register strong protest against sealing, the CAIT has already called for a Delhi Trade Bandh on 28 September when all major markets of Delhi will be closed.
CAIT Secretary General Mr Praveen Khandelwal in his communication to Mr Puri said that the monitoring committee has recently issued orders to seal all farmhouses and motels immediately which will pose a big social problem as thousands of wedding and other functions are already fixed to be solemnised in these farmhouses .if they are sealed, the people of Delhi will run into great trouble.
Mr Khandelwal further said that although master plan is amended by the Government about 4 months back but so far Delhi has got not even a single relief nor any shop has been desealed. It’s about nine months now that large number of shops still remains sealed and traders are not at the verge of starvation.Since the matter in court is deffered till next year it will be highly difficult for the traders to survive.
Under the circumstances, promulgation of an Ordinance with an amnesty scheme is the only option available to provide relief to traders from sealing. The Government must rise to the occasion and take immediate steps-said Khandelwal.
