NEW DELHI: On the last day of filing of affidavits and undertakings relating to stoppage of misuse of properties, over 13,000 traders filed their papers in order to save themselves from sealing action. With this the total number of people who have submitted their undertakings has gone up to 16,313.

To cater to the rush, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi had opened more special counters to facilitate filing of undertakings. While about 3,000 traders, whose properties fall under the 2,183 newly notified roads and who had earlier filed affidavits, submitted their undertakings with the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Saturday, the last day of the process witnessed a surge of traders.

The Corporation said it had received the maximum number of undertaking from West zone (3650), followed by Najafgarh (2258), Rohini (1979), Karol Bagh (1620), Shahdara South (1611), Central (1286), Shahdara North (1250), Civil Lines (1200), Sadar Pahar Ganj (863), South (442) and City zone (154).

While 16,313 traders have filed their undertakings, the number is far short of the almost 25,000 traders who had earlier filed affidavits and have since been covered under the recently notified roads.
