Dibrugarh, July 27: The district administration has taken a firm stand against the unregistered hostels and lodges of the district. As notified recently, the owners of such establishments are supposed to register their respective entities with the district administration. This decision was taken as the number of unregistered hostels and lodges was burgeoning. The owners have been mandated to collect the registration form from the Administrative Section (Room number -15) of the DC office, and submit the same along with other necessary documents. The measure is expected to bring such places of temporary accommodation under the regulations and ambit of the administration, thus paving the way for better safety and security.
