KOZHIKODE: The general body meeting of the Kerala Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samiti (KVVES) at the Kozhikode North and South Assembly constituency level will be held at the Tagore Centenary Hall here on November 5.

As many as 1,500 delegates are expected to participate in the meeting. Samiti State general secretary Alex M. Chacko will inaugurate the meeting. The meeting was part of a move to organise KVVES at the constituency level so that local problems of the traders could be dealt with more effectively, the organisers said. The meeting will discuss the hike in licence fee, imposition of pollution control norms on even small hotels, among others.
