Temporary permit for food business in KL during RMCO period

Written by TheMole

KUALA LUMPUR, July 23 2020: The City Hall (DBKL) has simplified the process for those who wish to set up a stall or food truck during the Covid-19 recovery movement control order (RMCO) period.

It is now offering a temporary three to six months permit for those who wish to do so.

According to the conditions imposed on the permit holders, they can only operate from 7am to 10am or 11am to 2pm or 4pm to 7pm or 7pm to midnight.

They may however seek permission to take up a maximum of three time slots a day but must operate in different locations.

The monthly fee for a static roadside stall is RM20 and RM62 for mobile hawkers. A RM3 sticker from DBKL must also be displayed clearly at the stalls or vehicles.

Only Malaysian citizens aged 18 and above can apply for the temporary permit and each stallholder can only have one assistant who has to be a local too.

The temporary permit has to be renewed 30 days before the date of expiry.

The application form for the temporary permit is available at the licensing counter at DBKL’s branch offices or via its website

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan told Bernama that DBKL is providing the temporary permits for those who need to earn a living as food vendors during the economically challenging RMCO period.

He said as of yesterday, 95 people have received the temporary permits.

He advised those who want to apply for the temporary permit to do so personally instead of asking a middleman to apply on their behalf at the risk of being cheated.

He also stressed that DBKL will take stern action against hawkers who fail to practise good hygiene.
