It’s Time for Smart ID’s for Street Vendors


Chandigarh: In a new move, for better enforcement, the local Municipal Corporation will issue smart identity cards with bar codes to registered vendors in the city.

The cards will have pre-fed information about vendors, allotted site, fee status and challan history, etc.The enforcement sub-inspectors/inspectors will have hand-held devices that can be used to scan the IDs to retrieve information about a particular vendor.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the recently-formed Town Vending Committee.

Further, for allotment of around 2,800 new vending sites, preference will be given to those with physically disabilities, widows, transgenders, senior citizens, with chronic illness and AIDS. For the remaining sites, the allotment would be done through a draw of lots.
