Mayor Benjamin Magalong said an ongoing inventory and audit of such stalls uncovered more irregularities than what was initially reported.

"[T]here were stalls paying P4,500 monthly to the city but are being subleased for P100,000 and others being charged by the city for P300, but subleased for P5,000 to P10,500," he said in his recent "Ugnayan" press briefing.

He said there were also those able to sell rights over non-existent stalls for as much as P500,000.
