DBKL censuses on Jalan Alor traders was to determine number of license holders

KUALA LUMPUR: Traders along Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang were issued with licenses after several censuses were conducted last year before their temporary relocation to facilitate upgrading works by DBKL.

"The censuses were carried out to identify the traders who possessed active licenses," DBKL Corporate Planning Department Khairul Azmir Ahmad in a statement on Wednesday (Jan 15).

"Unlicensed traders were also included in the census to help them to get a license," he said in a statement on Wednesday (Jan 15), adding that these traders were only allowed to operate within DBKL-approved areas.

He was responding to a report by StarMetro on Jan 11 about some traders in Jalan Alor who were still in limbo over the status of their licenses.

In the report, a trader claimed that he had two licenses, but was not given any designated spaces to set up his stalls.

Khairul Azmir said the upgrading works by DBKL were made in two phases.

"The second phase which began in December 2018 was completed at the end of July last year," he said.

Khairul Azmir also explained that hawkers whose stalls were confiscated by DBKL recently were using fake licenses.

"The licenses were revoked in 2014 after it was found out that these businesses involved foreigners," he said.
