PROPOSAL TO DLSA:
Due to the Fire Incident, almost 100 shops are completely burned to ashes. The said market is situated in a rural area and almost all the shopkeepers are lower income people and this is the 3rd fire incident in this market since last few years. Therefore they are unable to re-construct their shop due to financial inability. As required by the time to construct a permanent Market Shed (Rooms) in the said market.
