With the inflow of investments and population, Panvel is considered to be the future city that holds tremendous possibilities. Developments in the city have evoked the need for good markets and safe transportation in the city. But due to ill management and illegal invasions, roads and streets of the Old Panvel city are filled with hawkers and waste thrown by them. Residents in the city feel as a time to change the problems into possibilities. They want authorities to accommodate hawkers in better places in order to minimize traffic and sanitation problems.

Residents found it even harder to park their vehicles, as most the areas are invaded by hawkers. Traffics are primary victims of these illegal hawkers. Major roads, junctions, circles and even areas near to administrative building are not free from hawkers or traffic congestion. Shivaji Chowk and Tapal Naka are the most affected areas, as hawkers cover all the footpaths and even roadsides. Disputes between hawkers and drivers are often due to parking problems.

The presence wholesale vegetable market has also accelerated the number of hawkers. As they get enough customers in road sides of Panvel. Many visit Panvel due to the presence of vegetable market. Thus there is no decrease in customers. Residents need their officials to understand the potential of vegetable markets and increase the area for markets in the city.

Sanitation problems are other important problems created by hawkers, as they choose to throw wastes and plastic materials in roads and footpaths. Hawkers have grown to such a level, so they are not questioned by a normal person. Residents want municipality to clean the roads and footpaths regularly to diminish sanitation problems in the city. “Removing hawkers would solve all the problems of sanitation and waste management in the city” said Mathew, a resident of Panvel.

Sagar, a resident of Panvel, said “we are not asking to remove hawkers, but to accommodate them in proper places to avoid unwanted traffic congestions and sanitation. Authorities has to find some solution, otherwise the increasing number of hawkers could make far reaching impacts on our city.”

Shantaran Upaye, administrative officer of PMC, said “we already working on the problem. The solution will be reached soon. It is difficult to find a place all the hawkers inside a market.”
