Crackdown on unlicensed groceries
After recent shutdowns of some restaurants, severeal unlicensed groceries, and restaurants and cafeterias operating from accommodation units in the industrial area were raided by Doha Municipality officials.
The majority of these illegal outlets were situated in accommodation units between Street 33 and Street 38. Not only were the groceries shut down immediately, but their operators needed to pay a fine for for running commercial activities inside workers’ camps without a licence. A total of 60 unlicensed groceries were raided.

I don't know about you guys, but I always find it difficult to find a decent eatery in the industrial area. It needs more places for people to eat and that's why I suspect these illegal eating joints popped up. Authorities always stomping on the already trampled while those who really need to be brought into line are free to do as they like.
Whilst it is a good move to do away with illegal businesses, they were also providing much needed services to the workers. So , what will be done to help the workers now ?
But no rain now ....:(
Then the only option is to recruit such workers in some offices and live happily.
