Non-tribal vendors in Meghalaya operating without trade license

Shillong: Many non-tribal vendors operating on the roadside in Iewduh (Bara Bazar) of Meghalaya’s capital Shillong do not have any trade licenses.

The allegation was made by the Chief Executive Member (CEM) of KHADC, Titosstarwell Chyne on Thursday.
KHADC CEM was accompanied by Executive Member in-charge Market, Grace Mariam Kharbuki, Executive Member in-charge Trade, Rangkynsai Kharbuki, Syiem of Mylliem, Ainam Sing Syiem, Myntris and officials from the Council’s Enforcement Wing for the surprise inspection. of Iewduh Market to check trade licenses of non-tribal traders.

Speaking to the media later, Chyne directed the enforcement wing to evict all non-tribal roadside hawkers who are running their business illegally without a trade license from the council.
The KHADC CEM also stated that there are many non-tribal traders who own a shop inside Iewduh who do not have trade licenses.

He also expressed strong reservations over the attempt by a local businessman, Paul Leong, to prevent the Enforcement Wing officials from checking the trade licenses of non-tribal traders who had shops in his building.
KHADC CEM said that it is really unfortunate that local people are claiming that some shops are theirs when these shops are actually owned by non-tribal traders.

On the other hand, he expressed satisfaction over the progress of construction of wholesale vegetable market.

The Council has allocated funds to Syiem of Myllieum for the construction of this wholesale vegetable market.

He further informed that he is planning to open a wholesale vegetable market in May.
