When hawkers took their tentacles and captured a major part of Navi Mumbai, the so called satellite city and its authorities is coming under constant criticism. Hawkers have established their presence in Kamote to New Panvel and nearby areas also. When authorities are inefficient about hawkers, residents are suffering different problems due to it.

Hawkers have their own justification for running shops in footpaths. They argue that they have run their home, though it affects the normal life of city. This problem should be solved in emergency, as it creates plenty of problems in the area. Though hawkers offer vegetables, fruits, fishes near to residential areas, they destroy the area by throwing wastes and remaining.

Kamote is an important residential area which offers good infrastructures in the area. Developed and maintained by CIDCO, it has become a major attraction for home seeks and even for commercial purposes. But many its footpaths are covered by hawkers, who makes the life of city dwellers hectic. It has created many traffic problems.

Residents of New Panvel have also started feeling the pinch of Hawkers and their filthy surroundings. They are mostly located in sector 19 & 13 and near to railway station. But some isolated complaints have also got from other parts of the town. Hawkers occupied near to Bhatia High School, has created a huge problem, as it affects the traffic and normal pedestrians near to school.

CIDCO officials promised to take necessary proper actions, as residents dwelling near the station feel to take some immediate actions against illegal developments of markets in foot paths. These markets are increasing day by day and spreading into other areas of Panvel as well.

Jainamma, a resident of Panvel, said “I cannot criticize hawkers, as even I brought vegetables from their shops. But when it affects the society and its balance, officials have to find a way out. Why can’t officials allot some space for market in New Panvel?”

Susan Eapen, a resident of New Panvel, said “Hawkers are already an important problem in many other parts of the city. So officials should take steps to avoid such invasion in future. Prevention is better than cure.”

Blesson Chacko, a resident of Kamote, said “Hawkers in Kamote should be accommodated in a special place, which is accessible for the entire city. So people choose to go market instead of hawkers. Hawkers are similar to Cancer, should be cured but don’t avoid them.”

Kamote and New Panvel are coming under the jurisdiction of CIDCO.

Mohan Ninave, PRO of CIDCO, assured that “we will seriously look into the issue as we got complaint and take necessary actions according to it. We are also planning for a space where we could accommodate those road sellers.”
