Earlier Male' City Council had ordered to vacate the idle vehicles at Industrial Village

In an announcement, the council authority has ordered to clear the area within a seven-day period, which commenced on 18 June.

All vehicle owners have been ordered to vacate the area within the said duration.

The Industrial Village was established during the administration of former President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, in a bid to shift all industrial capacity works and warehouses into a designated area.

Moreover, the zone was also established in order to move the hazardous chemicals into safer storage facilities that are mostly stocked across warehouses in densely populated areas of the city.
