MCC to provide designated hawking place for street vendors

Mangaluru: Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) will soon make arrangements for a designated hawking place for street vendors. The MCC plans to accommodate the vendors in about one acre land near the service bus stand.

A variety of facilities will be provided to the vendors, said Mayor Harinath. “The present facility can accommodate 210 street vendors and arrangements are being made to accommodate another 100 vendors in the same place. The ground will be inter-locked and drinking water facility will be provided. The vendors can use the nearby public toilet facility,” he said.

The Mayor further said that MCC has issued identity cards to 210 street vendors. “Only vendors with the valid identity card will be allowed to accommodate the hawking place. A week’s time will be given to the vendors to shift from the State Bank of India bus terminus premises and the Central Market area. The corporation will begin evicting the vendors from the roadside after a week,” he added.

Harinath also informed that the corporation will have a 10-member team exclusively to evict street vendors.
