New Delhi, Oct 20 (UNI) Traders in Delhi today met Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit and apprised her of growing dissatisfaction among them in the city on matter of shifting of wholesale trade of the walled city to other areas.
A delegation of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) met Ms Dikshit and said the report submitted by Delhi Government in Delhi High Court contravenes provisions of Master Plan 2021 and the land allotted to chemical and paper trade is yet to be developed by Government Agencies concerned and as such shifting of both traders in six months was impossible.
They also submitted a memorandum to her in this regard.
The Chief Minister marked the memorandum to the Chief Secretary asking for a detailed report in the matter and asked him to hold a meeting with Delhi Traders on the issue.
She further asked the delegation to meet her again after the meeting with the Chief Secretary.
The delegation, led by CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal, said provision of the Master Plan 2021 proposes shifting of only noxious and hazardous trade whereas the other trades will be redeveloped with minimum inconvenience to the existing trades.
