MBSA approves 1,204 Ramadan bazaar permits, 111 plots still vacant

By Sofia Nasir

SHAH ALAM, March 7 — The Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) has issued 1,204 Ramadan bazaar business permits in 25 locations this year, says its deputy mayor Cheremi Tarman.

He said as of today, a total of 111 plots in seven bazaar locations are still vacant as some of the applications were turned down for not meeting the requirements.

“The seven Ramadan bazaars that still have unoccupied plots are in TTDI Jaya, Subang Perdana, Section U5, Subang 2, Section U13, and two in Bandar Baru Sungai Buloh.

“Each site has about 5 per cent vacant plots because some of the applications were rejected due to various reasons, such as incomplete applications,” he said at a press conference today following the launch of the ePenjaja MBSA system and face mask-wearing campaign. The event also saw the handover of the Ramadan bazaar permits at the MBSA Convention Center, here today.

For further enquiries on the Ramadan bazaar permits, contact the MBSA Licensing Department at 03-5510 5133 extensions 1762, 1486, 1699, 1317 or 1366.

Meanwhile, Cheremi said that the ePenaja system was introduced to ease the sales of food and beverages at the upcoming Ramadan bazaars.

He said the system is in collaboration with Platform Selangor (PLATS) and is also part of the digitalisation process of small traders.

“Starting from this year’s Ramadan bazaar, the ePenjaja system will provide a directory that would allow the consumers to know what is being offered at each bazaar.

“They can order the food from the traders via Whatsapp and then pick up the food at the location,” he said.

Cheremi said the ePenjaja system has been in operation since January to make it easier for traders to apply for licences and permits without having to wait in a long queue.

He said through the system, all aspects of the application — including the application stage, approval, payment and issuing of permits — would be done online.
