Monitoring Committee on sealing should be disbanded by the court: CAIT

The Delhi Merchants Associations strongly opposed the application made by the Control Commission for the seal before the Supreme Court. The commission is seeking additional inspections in the national capital to enforce the seal, which could lead to the arbitrary closure of businesses.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) General Secretary Praveen Khandelwal, State President Vipin Ahuja, along with 15 big business leaders in Delhi, expressed their concern.

They asserted that at a time when the New Delhi Master Plan, which is expected to address all issues related to the city’s development over the past 15 years, is about to be introduced, the proceedings of the court-appointed High Monitoring Commission would be extremely unfair. It harms the interests of Delhi merchants.

CIT plans to convene a meeting of Delhi merchants to discuss the issue.

The business leaders also called on the Chief Minister of Delhi and the Mayor of the Municipal Corporation to address the matter immediately and take necessary steps.

“The retirement age for Supreme Court judges is 65 years, and members of the Monitoring Committee are approximately 70 years old, so this Monitoring Committee must be dissolved immediately by the Court, and because a Judicial Committee was formed by the Court, there is no justification for the existence of the Monitoring Committee,” the leaders of the Central Agency for Information Technology said. .

They further highlighted that businesses in Delhi had already suffered due to the stamp, with thousands of shops closed for years.

He asked the Central Agency for Information Technology to announce an amnesty plan with a deadline to save Delhi businesses from being shut down.

They also stated that any new laws or measures should only apply in the future, with the exception of actions related to encroachments on government lands, for which immediate and firm action must be taken, and the merchants have no objection.
