Separate street vendors’ zone to be created in Himachal districts

Urban Development Minister Suresh Bhardwaj on Wednesday directed officers to create a street vendors’ zone besides formulating Grievances Redressal Committee (GRC) in the state.

Urban Development Minister said the Central Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and state government headed by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur have initiated several schemes for the welfare of street vendors.

The Minister said in order to provide a favourable atmosphere for identified street vendors, district level committees headed by District Magistrates will be formed. These committees will look into the grievances of street vendors and ensure that none of them are exploited.

The Minister also directed the officials to initiate steps so that vendors could be benefitted by Pradhan Mantri Street Vendors Aatma Nirbhar Nidhi (PMSVANidhi). He said PMSVANidhi is an ambitious scheme and instructions have been given to streamline the same in the state.
