The Mussoorie-Dehradun Development Authority (MDDA) demolished old structures located at Indira Market under the Indira Market Redevelopment Project on Friday. The MDDA secretary MS Barniya informed that the 71 shop owners of the shops located at the taxi stand in the Indira Market area were provided temporary shops by the administration but despite that, they did not vacate the old shops even after signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU).
The authorities even sent multiple notices and warnings to the owners to vacate the shops but they failed to comply with the norms. Considering this, the MDDA took action on the matter on Friday and demolished the shops after they vacated them. Barniya informed that these shops were planned to be demolished earlier but it was postponed due to the monsoon. He informed that a total of about 600 shops and a parking facility for over 1,000 vehicles will be constructed under the Indira Market Redevelopment Project along with green space and other facilities in the public-private partnership (PPP) mode.
