The Beedi Vyapari Sanghatanegala Okkuta visited the spots and released a report on the survey detailing the shortcomings in the survey methodology. The surveyors succeeded in mapping the vendors at places like Dasarahalli market by distributing the forms in the morning and collecting them in the evening. At Hesaraghatta Main Road, where the Dasarahalli BBMP zone office is located, the members of the Okkuta met six vendors but none had an idea about the survey.

Would you like fresh chutney while eating street food? This could soon become a reality as a team of three have come up with this idea at the Waste Hackathon. Under the 3C Concept — the team of professionals came up with an idea where fresh chutney is prepared and sold to street vendors. "Normally, vendors prepare chutney in the morning and sell it till late in the evening. Chutneys become stale and to increase its quantity, non-potable water is added. Hence, we thought this can be rectified with this initiative," said T M Hanumantharaya, a vendor from Jalahalli and a participant at the second edition of the Waste Hackathon. Explaining the idea, Dr Nilima Kadambe, surgeon and Hanumantharaya's partner said, "We will set up a stall and make fresh chutneys and supply it to vendors who can even order customised chutneys."

Lajpat Nagar now no-hawking zone 7.7.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The Delhi High court on Thursday declared Lajpat Nagar as a no-hawking zone stating that encroachments on the pavements by street vendors there could prove fatal. "This is a classic case where having learnt our lesson, we still refuse to adhere," the court said with regard to the return of street vendors to the area. A bench of Justices GS Sistani and Vinod Goel recalled that the then Lieutenant Governor had in 1996 declared the area as a no-hawking or squatting zone as emergency services could not reach the victims of a massive bomb blast that had occurred that year claiming 13 lives. It noted that the situation has worsened with the influx of people and street ...
