Mussoorie, 25 Jun: A strategy is being prepared by the district administration to take action against the increasing encroachment on the Mall Road here.

SDM Dr Deepak Saini has instructed the Executive Officer of the Municipal Council, Rajesh Naithani, to prepare an action plan against the increasing encroachment on Mall Road. A meeting of all the officers and supervisors of the municipality was held in the Municipal Council Auditorium under the leadership of the Executive Officer, today, in which two teams were formed to remove the encroachment.

Executive Officer Rajesh Naithani said that the SDM has given the responsibility of removing encroachment from the Mall Road to the Naib Tehsildar. He said that, from Wednesday, the action to remove the encroachment on Mall Road will be started. Goods kept on the roads by the shop owners will also be removed.

The anti-encroachment drive will be run on Mall Road from 5 to 10 p.m. No one other than the previously identified 52 people will be allowed to put up vends on Mall Road and if anyone unauthorised person is found doing so, the material will be confiscated and legal action taken.

These days many people have put up street markets on both sides of the Mall Road, due to which the image of Mussoorie is getting spoiled. The government has spent more than Rs 7 crore to beautify the Mall Road, but the street vendors are spoiling it.
