With the sudden issuance of the notice to ban the sale of cut fruits in Mohali, the vendors who used to sell the cut fruits will be worst hit. Selling fruits was their job for the living. Banning the cut fruit sale make them lose their daily chore, yet hampering their income to run the livelihood.

Whichever, food item will be found to be selling under unhygienic conditions in the Mohali district, its samples will have to undergo the tests performed by the Bacteriologist in Punjab.

Though it is a commendable job done by the government but let’s see how will be the response from the vendors as well as from the consumers on this notification.
