THERE will be an increase in Ramadan bazaars and stalls in Selangor this year.

Subang Jaya will have 26 bazaars compared to 16 last year with the Jalan 18/35 site in Taman Seri Serdang as its biggest with 180 stalls.

Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) Corporate and Strategic Management Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid said the addition of stalls would help traders, especially the B40 group, to earn an income.

“Applicants must be Malaysians, residing in Subang Jaya and have obtained their typhoid and Covid-19 vaccinations,” he said.

The bazaar in Jalan BK 5A/1, Bandar Kinrara will accommodate 160 stalls while the Jalan USJ 4/5 site in USJ 4, Subang Jaya will have 140 stalls.

Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) Corporate and Public Relations division head Shahrin Ahmad said seven sites which had low footfall last year were discontinued.

“This allows for better control and management at the remaining bazaars.

“The number of stalls at several sites is increased due to higher demand,” he added.

He said a briefing would be held soon with traders with permits to be given out at Wisma MBSA in Convention Centre in Section 13, Shah Alam.
