The election process of Vyapar Mandal Shimla started from Monday. The first day was the day of giving nomination form, in which no businessmen took the nomination form. From 11 am to 6 pm, the election officials sat with the nomination form, but during this time no business came to collect the form. However, there are still two more days left. Today and tomorrow will also be the day to give the form, so now the nomination forms will be available till two days. Most of the forms are expected to be sold on the last day itself.
Enrollment forms will be available by August 25. Nomination will be able to be taken from the shop of KK Khanna, a businessman of Mall Road, Shimla. The enrollment fee for this will be Rs 2500. This amount will not be returned. The nomination forms will be filled from 26 to 28 August. After this, the day has been fixed for 29 scrutiny and 31 August for withdrawal. On September 12, the new executive board of the Board of Trade will be elected. After eight years, a new executive is being elected, about which there is a lot of enthusiasm in the business.
2500 businessmen will put watts: There are about 2500 water in Vyapar Mandal Shimla. Most of the traders in the lower market are there. Apart from this, many businessmen of Sanjaili, Chhata Shimla including Malred, Middle Bazar, Ganj Bazar, Ram Bazar Bus Stand are also involved in business. Businessmen from 18 wards will be able to participate in the election. Vyapar Mandal Shimla had also launched a campaign for making waterers some time back, but only those wards were taken, whose businessmen were already in the Vyapar Mandal. Due to this, traders from outside have not been allowed to participate in it. Now the new executive will decide to take the business of other wards with it.
After the election, these can also be included in the Board of Trade: After the elections, there is a plan to include the businessmen outside Shimla city in the Board of Trade. In this, the businesses of Kachchi Ghati, Tutu, Mashobra, Kufri, Dhali can be included. Because now many wards have come under the municipal corporation. In such a situation, the businessmen here are also clamoring to join the Board of Trade. Discussions were also held regarding these, but later the decision on it remained incomplete. Now after the elections, a meeting will be held to include these businessmen again. The new executive will decide on these.
There has been a demand for elections for four years: Elections were held in the year 2013 of Shimla Vyapar Mandal. After this the registration of Vyapar Mandal Shimla was done on December 2017. During this, the Election Committee was formed to conduct the elections of the Board of Trade, whose chairman was made Ashwani Minocha. Then the current Board of Trade had asked the committee for three months’ time for the elections, which was given. But after that elections were not held. The factionalism in the trade circle had come to the fore. Meanwhile, Sarvjit Singh Bobby had also resigned from the post of Joint Secretary of the Board of Trade. Now elections are being held again after almost eight years.
