By Express News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Street vendors have started mushrooming in the city leading to major encroachments on footpaths.
To put an end to the street vendor menace that has plagued the footpaths, the city corporation has decided to launch special zones for street vendors in the city.
The city corporation has carried out two surveys of street vendors to issue licenses before rehabilitation.
The bylaw for the street vendors as per the latest gazette notification of the state government is yet to be finalised.
Vending zones, restricted vending zones and no vending zones will be identified based on the volume of traffic and the number of pedestrians passing through the street.
