Poor garbage management may cost traders licences

The BBMP is planning to withdraw trade licences of shops and business establishments who do not properly manage garbage. The BBMP also plans to introduce the Self Assessment Scheme (SAS) for the traders to declare on their own the space used by them for commercial activities. Based on the SAS, the Palike will issue trade licences. The BBMP Special Commissioner K R Niranjan said the Palike would make such provision to ensure cleanliness in the City.
