Ludhiana, June 8

The Malhar Road Shopkeepers’ Welfare Association today met the senior vice-chairman (Excise and Taxation) of the Punjab State Traders’ Board, Bhupinder Basant, to discuss issues being faced by traders in the city.

The president of the association, Paramjit Singh, demanded that the parking problem on Malhar road be redressed on priority basis to provide a relief to the traders. He also demanded that the duration to open shops should be extended so that shopkeepers do not run into further losses.

“Many shopkeepers are finding it difficult to pay rents of their commercial buildings,” he said.

Basant told traders that even though restrictions had been extended in the state till June 15, certain relaxations would be provided to shopkeepers and they would be allowed to open their shops till 6 pm. — TNS
