Tuticorin: Municipal authorities removed a milk centre run by a franchisee of `Aavin', situated in front of the district court complex here on Wednesday.

The move followed cancellation of its licence by the officials of the Tamil Nadu Co-operative Milk Producers Federation (Aavin).

Municipal sources told mediapersons that the licence was cancelled after the franchisee "violated four clauses" in the agreement made with the Aavin such as non-commencement of sales within 15 days of signing the contract and failure to remit the deposit amount.

A municipal team led by Senior Town Planning Officer M. Rakkappan supervised the removal of the shop.
