The Panvel Post

Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai

Wholesale vegetable market of Panvel neglected by authorities.

Pronounced as a corridor of the Konkan region, Panvel plays an important role in the life of Navi Mumbaikars. It has emerged as a commercial junction between Konkan, Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. It is also expected to grow in many terms in coming years. Already many proposals and initiatives in infrastructure development have come due to this.

The Wholesale vegetable market located in Old Panvel, serves the need of many byorganizing and selling the vegetables and fruits produced in the vicinity. It holds a strategic place in the development of Panvel as a commercial hub. It has played a crucial role in the oldest Municipality of Maharashtra. It is visible that these markets have immense influence in the culture and identity of Panvel City. From time to time needs and requirements space and infrastructure of the market increased with its growing population.

Panvel Post is covering various problems and hurdles faced by the Market today.

One of the crucial problems faced by the market today is related to cleanliness. As an important commercial hub and an inevitable part of Panvel, cleanliness of the market affects the rest of the city as well. Solid wastes and remaining of vegetables, fruits make the surroundings of market filthy. Insufficient space to accommodate growing number of vendors is an important fact here. One can find the market area easily as it produces such hasty smell to the surroundings.

It is the responsibility of Health Department (sanitation) to look after the cleanliness of the market and Old Panvel. It is in charge to maintain waste materials and find a proper place for garbage disposal. Though municipal workers are collecting garbage from the area, a responsible will to clean and maintain market have not seen. Garbage boxes or sigh boards are unknown in the market and its vicinity. No particular area for garbage dubbing is designed in the area.

Obviously, a vegetable market produces an immense amount of waste materials and need to remove immediately for the smooth working. Vendors, the public and even outsiders felt the pinch of the market. This market also reflects the face of the city, as outsiders are constantly visiting this area.

Mohd. Khattb, a resident of Panvel, said “this market have some crucial inputs into the developments of the city. But the market is hugely ignored by officials, which in turn produces major headaches for the authorities. Cleanliness is the basic problem faced by this market.”

Arshiya Sheikh , a frequent visitor of the market, said “every vegetable market will face these problems, but the conditions of the Panvel vegetable market are very pathetic. It will become even filthy in the rainy season, when we won’t be able to walk through the streets.”

Beena Chacko, a resident of Kharghar use to visit the market, said Panvel is the most congested and most pathetic place in whole Navi Mumbai. The streets are too narrow and the vegetable market inaccessible for a common man. The streets are always filthy and have no proper maintenance of solid wastes.

Dileep Kadam, Chief health inspector of the Health Department (sanitation), said “we are looking at every possibility to clean the market and maintain garbage from the area. We will take sufficient steps to it.”
