New Delhi, Oct 5 (PTI) The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has signed an agreement with the Traders Association Lajpat Nagar where the traders' body will take care of sanitation and sweeping services of six km roads in and around the market place.

Traders Association Lajpat Nagar (TALN) General Secretary Ashwani Marwah said that under the initiative, the traders' body will take the entire responsibility of cleaning of a stretch of 6 km roads at its own expense in the market area.

"A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard was signed with the MCD last week. We hope to initiate the service by Diwali. The main reason behind such a move was to offer a helping hand and support to MCD as a responsible association group in maintaining cleanliness of our area," Marwah told PTI on Wednesday.
