The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House recently approved a new policy setting specific regulations on the distance between meat shops and religious places or cremation grounds. This policy was passed in the MCD House meeting on Tuesday and is applicable for the grant of new licenses or the renewal of licenses for meat shops and meat processing units.
According to an official statement from the MCD, the policy stipulates that the minimum distance between a meat shop and religious places, such as temples, mosques, gurudwaras, and cremation grounds or burial grounds, must not be less than 150 meters.
It’s important to note that the 150-meter distance condition is applicable specifically to meat shops near Masjids (Mosques) that sell pork.
During the MCD House meeting on Tuesday, a total of 58 proposals were presented, with 54 proposals being successfully passed. Among these, one proposal is the regularization of 5,000 sanitation workers.
The MCD House also approved proposals for the deployment of DBC (Domestic Breeding Checkers) employees and sending MCD School principals to international universities like Oxford and Cambridge for enhanced training and development.
Following the passage of the proposal to regularize 5,000 sanitation workers, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed his congratulations to the sanitation workers and their families.
