TRADERS at the Chow Kit wet market on Jalan Raja Bot, are seeking the goodwill of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to reduce their rent as they prepare to relocate to the new multi-storey market next door.

They are asking DBKL to reduce their rent, which can go as high as RM800 per month, by 50% to 70% as they plan to move into the new premises after the Hari Raya celebrations.
The traders who never had to pay rent at their old premises are hoping City Hall will reduce the amount to ease their burden.

Persatuan Penjaja-Penjaja dan Peniaga-Peniaga Kecil Kawasan Chow Kit deputy chairman Ng Keat Siong said they hope to have a meeting with DBKL in April. – April 1, 2024.
