Bhubaneswar: A team of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Revenue department sealed Big Bazaar at Patia Square in Bhubaneswar over various issues.
As per reports, the seizure came over various irregularities and violations of fire safety, parking rules and other building amenity guidelines.
While the initial step was based on unauthorised constructions, later the BMC officials spotted that the shopping mall lacks parking facilities including a lot of other violations regarding the BMC norms. This also led to traffic congestion in the area.
The seal notice was issued to the building owner Jitendra Singh and not the shopping mall brand.
Reportedly, earlier a notice was served to rectify the errors and submit the respective documents with the BMC authorities. However, the Big Bazaar staffers failed to do so.
