850 vending sites to come up in 8 sectors of Panchkula
HSVP, civic body sign agreement for transfer of sites which will be allotted in phases through draw of lots after model code of conduct is lifted
From page 01 PANCHKULA : Almost ten months after the draft street vending policy for Panchkula was approved, the process of setting up vending zones in different sectors has finally kick-started as the municipal corporation (MC) and Haryana Shehri Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the transfer of 850 vending sites in Sectors 2, 4, 8, 10, 11, 12, 15 and 19 here.

Of these sites, the civic body will set up the first street vending market in Sector 19. The foundation stone for the market worth ₹1.5 crore was laid last month. The market will come up on one acre provided by the HSVP, where about 458 stalls will be allocated to

eligible vendors.

MC commissioner-cum-administrator Rajesh Jogpal said, “The layout plan for the vending sites in different sectors was approved by the HSVP recently. Thus, in the first phase, 850 sites have been allotted to the MC for the vending zones which will be developed for the vendors.”

Jogpal said the work regarding the same will be initiated in a phased manner, after the model code of conduct is lifted.

“The vending sites will be allotted through a draw of lots for the eligible vendors which are in the list of the survey done by the MC,” he added.

The civic body was made to reconduct vendors’ survey in August last year after several vendors had objected to the allotment list in the draft vending policy approved in June. Initially, the vendors’ survey was started in November 2017 by a Noida-based firm, according to which there are over 2,700 street vendors in the city. Of these, 50 are mobile vendors, while others operate from a fixed place.


As per the draft vending policy, a vendor will submit police verification and pay the rent of the allotted site on a monthly basis. He/She cannot construct any permanent structure on the allotted space and it is his/her responsibility of maintaining the space.

Also, 30% of the sites shall be reserved for scheduled caste women, persons with disability, minorities, etc. The Parliament had passed the Street Vendors’ (Protection of Livelihood and Regulation of Street Vending) Act in 2014, which guarantees the right to work as street vendors. They can be evicted only as per the provisions of the act.
