The restoration of the fish market began in phases in September 2014. Currently, the work on phases 3 and 4 is nearing completion. Accompanied by key officials, Gagrani inspected the facilities in the market's basement, the parking lot, checked on the electrification works and the evacuation systems. “Adequate arrangements have been made for drainage of waste water in the building.

Cold storage has also been recommended for fish vendors, who sell their catch in bulk. While restoring the heritage market, landscaping will also be done in an area of one acre,” said a civic official.
