The Municipal Corporation of Delhi has approved a new policy allowing state co-operatives to set up kiosks in closed garbage receptacle points. This expands on the previous policy that only allowed Amul to open milk kiosks. Government cooperatives from across the country can now bid for these spaces to sell various products.

The official said that the erstwhile South MCD had signed an MOU with Amul for setting up milk kiosks in dhalaos that were shut by the corporation. “In August last year, the MCD House cleared a private member’s resolution to amend the policy that allows opening of milk booths in place of dhalaos (primary garbage collection receptacles) to incorporate Verka, a brand managed by the Punjab State Co-operative Milk Producers’ Federation. The new policy allowing all government cooperatives has been brought in response to that resolution. Now, cooperatives will be able to sell all kinds of products ranging from milk, honey, other food products and fabrics at the kiosks set up at the abadoned dhalaos,” the official added.
