In the session, Dipen Agrawal, president of NVCC focussed the problems faced nowadays by the business persons. Besides installation of CCTVs, Agrawal said that police patrolling should be increased at important business locations like Itwari, Sarafa, Sitabuldi main market road, Dharampeth, Sadar and other areas.

He also bring fore the traffic problems faced by customers and the traders as well in the busy market areas and later the harassment by the traffic cops who took away the vehicles parked in non-parking area.
