District Collector, East, D Anandan said his office received 301 applications from traders, which were sent to the Intelligence Bureau office for clearance.

He said out of the 301 applicants, 50 received clearance from the IB office and the remaining 251 were likely to get clearance within a week.

The DC said receiving 301 applications at the start of the season was a good sign. Last year, 360 applications were received in the entire season.
