In his address, the Mayor said that a longstanding demand of the street vendors has been realised with the inauguration of the  separate zone for them. He said the Zone has come up in  accordance to a Supreme Court directive in this regard to ensure proper rehabilitation of street vendors.

He informed that the land has been provided to the street vendors in this prime area  with much difficulty and added that of the 216 registered street vendors, 208 have been issued ID cards so far. Street vendors should make good use of the facility provided to them, he added.
