Due to some disagreement between traders and mall owners in UP, it has been decided that all malls in the state will remain open but all shops inside the malls will remain closed.

According to ANI, the traders' body have put forth some demands like exclusion of rent and maintenance fee and subsidy on both for the next 12 months.

The mall owners reportedly did not agree to these demands and thus the shopkeepers have taken this decision.
