Pay up or vacate, Waqf board tells shopkeepers

New Delhi: The Delhi Waqf Board has given an ultimatum to shopkeepers in the Fatehpuri mosque complex, warning of eviction if they do not accept new rentals by December 20.

Delhi Waqf Board chairman Amanatullah Khan said that around 120 shops had been paying meagre rents for years. They are required to pay revised rents as per the new lease rules, but they have failed to do so, he said. 

"I met the shopkeepers on Friday and tried to convince them. If they do not agree to new rent agreement, they will be evicted after December 20," Khan said
