Hawkers, Beggars and anti socials are out from Panvel Railway Station


Panvel railway station is one of the most important junctions of the rails in the state. Both for suburban as well as long journey trains, Panvel offers a huge amount of people for transportation. Due to the increasing population inflow, people had faced many problems in the railway station.

Disturbance due to beggars, hawkers and anti social people had flawed the image of Panvel Railway station. It has offered lots of open spaces and bridges, were homeless could find shelter during sunny, rainy days and also in the nights. Thus the station becomes a suitable place for anti social people, who use drugs and alcohol on the premises.

Railway authorities and social organizations took an initiative to remove the presence of hawkers, beggars and anti social people from the railway premises. Disturbance of people using alcohol and drugs was a common problem at the railway station. With the help of Railway protection force and Human Welfare Association, railway authorities lead the drive and cleaned the railway station.

Hawkers created a mess on the roads near to the railway station. Though plenty of free space available, the station was suffering due to such illegal occupation. They have caused huge traffic congestion in the west side gate of Panvel Railway station. Beggars also contributed to the problems in Panvel, as they even found permanent shelters inside the station.

Various social organizations complained about the problems created by hawkers and illegal residents inside the railway station. But this for the first time railway taking such a strong stand to solve the problems of commuters in Panvel railway station. We welcome the initiative of authorities to remove illegal occupants and antisocial people. We are glad that officials heard our voice and taking proper actions” said Prakash Koshy, a resident of Panvel.

Even after driving them out, most of the illegal occupants are remaining on premises of the railway station, though railway authorities’ alarmed about punishments for reoccupation.  “We are strictly removing those illegal occupants, hawkers and beggars. We are taking legal steps towards those reoccupying the free spaces and bridges of Station” informed railway authorities.”
