Three civic bodies-DMC, Chumukedima Town Council and Ad-hoc Town Council Purana Bazar/East Dimapur- discovered 13 lakh numbers of bricks stocked in three brickfields-Janak, Ganesh and Vikas- out of nine where surprise checks were conducted on Saturday. The joint team was enforcing one of the resolutions made at the joint meeting on November 11 wherein stocking of such materials considered as hoarding for profiteering, is prohibited.
According to the Advisor in-charge of Rate Control DMC, the joint team termed the explanation of the three brick field owners that the bricks were booked in advance by customers as ‘invalid’. The three brickfields have been asked to immediately dispose off or sell off the stocked bricks otherwise, a fine of `50,000 would be imposed.
Further, the team informed all brickfield owners who are ready to commence production, to start at the earliest. Public and customers have also been informed not to buy bricks from brokers/sub-dealers but to buy directly from brickfields. It was also informed that bricks for sale will be available in the market from Dec 2010.
