“Further, shops and business establishments in Mokokchung are instructed not to entertain anybody engaged in selling calendars, concert or buffet tickets, lottery or raffle tickets and other similar items.”

The organisation referred to a circular stated to have been issued by the Mokokchung Municipal Council that all traders and shops in the town have proper trade permits issued by the council in their respective place of business.
