PMC issues eviction notices to four shops


The Ponda Municipal Council (PMC) chief officer has issued eviction notices to four shops located in front of the new market complex at Upper Bazar Ponda.
The eviction notice has given shop owners 24 hours to vacate the premises, failing which PMC will take action.
 Chief Officer Johnson Fernandes said the four shops have already been allotted space in the new market complex, which is almost complete. However, the project is in final phase but the work is held up as the old shops that are to be demolished have still not been vacated.
According to Fernandes, it has also resulted in rise in expenditure due to delay in completion of the work of the Rs 27 crore project. [H]
