Around 90 percent of minimarts do not have proper business permits, an official has said.
Jakarta City Council deputy speaker Muhammad Taufik said on Tuesday that the fact had come to light during a discussion of a draft bylaw on markets at the City Council’s Legislation Agency (Balegda) headquarters some time ago. Currently, the draft bylaw is being revised by the Home Affairs Ministry.
“Those minimarts do not operate under a business license for a modern store but under a restaurant license,” Taufik said on Tuesday as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.
As a result, those minimarts could be established near traditional markets, he said. (wnd)
