Raipur Municipal Corporation (RMC) on Monday evicted three shops of Jawahar Market after the ground below them began caving in owing to the construction work.  Raipur Smart City Limited (RSCL) has undertaken the construction of a multi-level parking facility right behind the Jawahar Market. A
large pit has been dug behind the market for the foundation of multi-level parking.

On Monday, some big chunks of the soil collapsed, exposing the bottom of at least three shops.  Considering the threat, officials immediately evacuated three shops and asked remaining shopkeepers to follow the suit.

These shopkeepers had already given consent to shift their shops into commercial complex being built adjacent to the multi-level parking building and allotment has also into commercial complex being built adjacent to the multi-level parking building and allotment has also been done.
