A crucial spot under the administration of Cidco, Khanda colony is facing congestion problems due to hawkers in the area. Situated near to the Sion Panvel Highway with better transportation and connectivity to other parts of the city, Khanda Colony has developed as a residential node for Navi Mumbai. Developed and maintained by Cidco, Khanda colony offers, Schools, Hospitals of better quality. With the increasing population, the need for infrastructure development is also increasing.

Particularly at evenings and peak hours, problems of the hawkers are increasing and affecting the traffic. Sector 6, 9 and 10 are increasing affected by these street vendors. They use to sell every kind of items such as fish, fruits, vegetables, ice creams, fancy ornaments and decorative things. Though these vendors are useful for people who live in the vicinity, now it has emerged as a disturbance in normal life in the area. Residents have also started complaining about the disturbance of hawkers.

As these areas are situated around important residential areas, but bit far from the important roads, the problems are many times neglected. The area is blessed with natural beauty and gift with good infrastructure. But to maintain the beauty and cleanliness of the area, it has become important to control the hawkers and manage the waste thrown by these people. If this condition is allowed to continue, this could even affect the health of the concerned area.

Sanu Mathew, a resident of Panvel, said “Khanda Colony is a good place to buy a home, as it has calm environment and better infrastructure. But some problems created by vendors on street are depleting the reputation of the area. Officials should take action before it gets worst and affects its life.”

Allen, a resident of Panvel, said we use to avoid the sector 10 & 9 for travelling as they offer huge traffics. In the evenings, streets of these areas will be filled with hawkers and residents who came out for shopping. It is important to accommodate these hawkers in a better place, so that they won’t make any traffic problems.

Mohan Ninave, PRO of CIDCO, assured to take enough actions to control hawkers in the area.
