NMMC’s decision on shop owners for the usage of marginal space, which is available in front of the shops, has led to the traders going on a hunger strike. The traders coming under the Belapur Traders Association have protested NMMC’s action of as non-usage of marginal space has affected their businesses immensely. The traders allege that even though they have paid for the marginal space during the purchasing of their shops with CIDCO, NMMC is penalizing them for using it. The hunger strike would be held till 13 of August in which various traders associations will be participating. They have stated that if NMMC continues to take action, they would take out a morcha to NMMC HQ.

The traders have also demanded that NMMC should inform under which act was it taking this action. With cameraperson Vinayak Dalvi, Sudhir Sharma for NMTV news.
