Facilitate Factory Licensing Process MCD, Firefighter NOCs, Traders Urge Adesh


In a bid to seek simplification of the process of obtaining factory licenses from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and Fire Service NOCs, representatives of an apex body of traders associations met on Thursday Delhi BJP leader Adesh Gupta regarding publishing it.

Following the Mundka fire tragedy which claimed 27 lives, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NMC) issued a notice asking traders to obtain new factory licenses or have existing ones renewed in addition no objection certificates (NOC) from firefighters. The group under the umbrella of NCT Delhi’s Apex Chamber of Commerce and Industry has sought Gupta’s help in convening a meeting between industry representatives and officials from the fire department and the BJP-led NMC.

The Apex Chamber claims that it has more than 60 industrial area associations among its members and also represents a large number of individual factory owners.

Apex Chamber Vice President Raghuvansh Arora said the BJP governs civic bodies so they met with Gupta and asked him to simplify the NOC licensing and firing process. “We have asked him (Gupta) to convene an industry owners interaction with senior NMC and fire officers for further discussions towards an amicable solution,” Arora said.

He said factory licenses were renewed for a three-year period in 2021-22 and licensees should not be burdened with new guidelines.

The process for obtaining NOC and factory fire licenses should be simplified, he said. “Industries should not be closed suddenly by municipal authorities as this would create unemployment problems and lead to loss of income,” he said.
