‘Verification of their applications has begun’
A delegation of newly elected Congress members of the city corporation, led by M. Diwakar Babu, former Minister, met Deputy Commissioner Amlan Aditya Biswas on Thursday and urged him to expedite the rehabilitation of the evicted roadside vendors.
During the discussion, Mr. Biswas said that he had already identified suitable places for their rehabilitation and the process of allotting slots to them would be completed in about 10 days.
However, he did not agree to the suggestion that the evicted vendors should be allowed to carry on with their business as before. He said that it was not in accordance with the law and any such move would also cause inconvenience to pedestrians.
Mr. Biswas told the delegation that the process of verification of applications submitted by the vendors had begun.
Of the nearly 600 applications received, about 250 were not in order because the applicants had not submitted all details, including photograph and voter identity card, as specified by the authorities. The vendors had been asked to furnish all documents, he said.
