Nurmahal NC yet to implement no-vendor zone policy

Nurmahal: More than two years after declaring200 meters adjoining Nagar council office and tehsil office as a no-vendor zone, the Nurmahal Nagar council (NC) has failed to implement the town vending committee’s decision taken in its meeting held on July 17, 2015.

The NC had formed TVC under The Street Vendors (Protection of Livelihood and regulation of street vending) Act, 2014.

The committee had decided that only mobile vending will be allowed and in street with less than 10 feet width, no mobile vending will be allowed. As per Act, the NC has to provide basic amenities along with the smart vendors’ identity cards to them.

 NC had conducted a survey of street vendors in 2014 and had identified around 64 vendors. No certificates have been issued to the vendor yet. Vendors keep their vends stationery near NC office and on the approach road to Nurmahal Sarai.

Illegal encroachments by vendors and unregulated business are one of the biggest challenges before the authorities.   The NC had formed a TVC in July 2014, which was re-casted in 2015 to implement the National Policy on Urban Street Vendors, 2009.

NC executive officer Charan Dass said that a meeting of TVC was held few days ago where members suggested two new places for shifting vends which will be discussed and a final decision is likely to be taken in TVC meeting to be held next week.
