Written by: Staff

Bhopal, May 9 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh Government today approved a programme for the welfare of urban street vendors and hawkers with the objective of ending difficulties faced by them due to their work on footpaths and street corners.

The decision was taken by the State Cabinet at its meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here today.

Under the programme, prepared by the Urban Development and Administration Department, urban civic bodies would conduct a survey of street vendors in cities and issue licenses to them on the basis of the survey.

The identified street vendors would be provided identity cards, which will bear joint photographs of husband and wife besides recording relevant details about the vendors.

A state-level steering and monitoring committee, town hawkers welfare committees and ward hawkers welfare committees would be constituted for well being of the street vendors and hawkers.

The state government would launch a group insurance scheme for the registered hawkers through urban civic bodies.

Cooperation of non-government organisations (NGOs) would also be enlisted to improve their social condition, the release added.
