Chandigarh: The Municipal Corporation (MC) has prepared a zoning draft proposal to rehabilitate vendors. The rehabilitation may be completed by February-end said MC Commissioner Baldeo Purushartha.
In the draft the MC has proposed to get kiosks with identical design and colour for those who iron clothes and cobblers which will be provided to them at their designated places. The MC will also get the vegetable vendor carts designed from Punjab Engineering College so that all such mobile vendors will have identical structured carts. The MC also mulls providing motorised carts for vegetable vendors.
The MC had got a survey conducted of the various types of vendors in the city which recorded around 21,000 vendors, including vegetable vendors, cobblers, persons who iron clothes, foothpath vendors and other such vendors.
The survey included aadhaar-based biometric registration on the basis of which each vendor will be given designated place to vend. The MC Commissioner cleared that all such vendors will not be given any shed or any type of kiosks to vend but instead will be given open marked spaces to put up their vend on ground which they will have to wind up.DP
