Sumo counters sealed

AALO, Jul 27: The West Siang district administration has sealed the Tata Sumo taxi counters here because of the taxi operators’ failure to shift the counters to the designated area near the state transport cooperative services.
The decision was taken in view of the mushrooming Tata Sumo counters creating traffic congestion in the township areas.
The second round of sealing will be carried out if the order continues to be defied. Public toilets and resting places are mandatory and requisite criteria to obtain licences for passengers’ counters, as per the laid down rules, in all town and cities.
The sealing was carried out by EAC Lijum Ete, District Tourism Officer Hummo Taipodia and the OC of the police station here. (DIPRO)
