Sopore, Feb 7: Municipal Council Sopore on Tuesday warned street vendors for using megaphones/loudspeakers within the municipal limits and ordered them to carry registration certificates.
The blaring megaphones cause inconvenience to senior citizens and students who attend classes or study, said residents. “The usage of loudspeakers for business purposes by the mobile vendors has added to the increased noise pollution,” they added.
An official at the municipal council Sopore said that strict action would be taken against those vendors found using the megaphones/loudspeakers for selling fruits/vegetables and other items within their municipality limits.
“The carts would be seized on spot”, the official said.
He directed registered vendors to carry the municipal registration certificates failing which a legal action would be taken.
“Many have made complaints to the council by social media or phone, following which the senior officials directed their subordinates to take action,” said an employee at the council.
