The framing of regulation is still under process and whatever penalty is included in that would be practical and proportionate to the seriousness of the violation.

The provision of penalty of Rs. 1 lakh for violating the safety norms had evoked a strong reaction from the trader community.

After action was taken by the administration against some erring shops yesterday in Jamshedpur, the traders had also called a Jamshedpur Bandh on Saturday.
