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 ...

SPEAK UP: To walk or to hawk? 12.6.2017 DNA: Money
In May, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Council (BMC) initiated the process of setting up Town Vending Committees (TVCs) to conduct surveys to identify street vendors, issue certificates to eligible vendors, recommend areas to be declared non-hawking zones, and identify sites for hawking, and regulate timings. However, this move came almost a year later, and only after strong observations from the Bombay High Court. At a time when a comprehensive hawkers' policy is yet to be implemented, the BMC is planning to increase fines from Rs 1,200 to Rs 5,000 to discourage street vendors from returning to the same spot again and again. Last month, the BMC's A ward issued notices to around 49 shop owners in South Mumbai's Fashion Street for violation of norms. While the move is believed to make footpaths free of encroachments, the delay in setting up TVCs also raises questions on the functioning of the civic administration. DNA spoke to Mumbaikars about whether they felt eviction of hawkers is the only solution as they ...
