Encroachments resurface outside Polyclinic


Encroachers have reopened illegal structures in front of Poly Clinic Hospital.

Now all the encroachers have returned and started their business afresh. Presently, 24 illegal cabins have been established.
Moreover, illegal tea stall owners are selling unhygienic products, including, juices, mineral water, tea and bread and looting outdoor patients and visitors by selling commodities at high prices as compared to market rates. No rate list has been displayed by any stall holder in sheer defiance of the rules.
