Bathinda, October 6 The Municipal Corporation (MC) is set to tighten the noose around the traders who don’t have a trade licence. It has been decided to impose late fee on the defaulters as they are liable to face action under Section 388 of the Municipal Corporation Act, 1911. There are 16,000 commercial units in the city, but hardly 1,800 of them get the licence every year from the civic body. This results in a lesser revenue than expected for the MC. Only 1,846 traders have paid the licence fee this year. Notices have been sent to those who haven’t applied for the licence in the past five years. Over 300 notices have been sent in a month while more will be sent soon. For this, the officials concerned are preparing a list.

He was referred to a hospital in Faridkot, where he was declared dead. Inspector Pritpal Singh, SHO of the Nandgarh police station, said a case under Sections 304 and 34 of the IPC had been registered against Charanjeet Kaur, Jagjeet Singh and Jarnail Singh.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
