GPS-enabled licence, ID card for street vendors

October 30 was the last date to submit the applications for the vending licence and identity card.

The Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) has taken up a survey to provide GPS- enabled vending licences and identity cards with QR code to street vendors to regularise their trade.

The MCC started the survey to identify street vendors in the city on September 22. October 30 was the last date to submit the applications for the vending licence and identity card.

While filing the applications, the street vendors had to submit documents like a photo identity card, BPL ration card, Aadhar card, caste certificate, bank passbook and photographs with family members, family details, place and time of business, etc.

The street vendors should use the licence and identity card while doing business. The GPS enabled identity card and licence will help the officials to trace their location and details on the government schemes availed by the vendor. The identity card and licence will be issued to a single person. Either that person, or his family members, can run the business in the place allocated by the MCC. This identity card will also check the street vendors from renting their pushcarts to others.

Speaking to DH, president of Karnataka State Street Vendors Maha Mandala Baskar Srinivas Raje Urs said, “There are nearly 6,000 street vendors in the city. The identity card and licence will be useful to street vendors. This will also help the street vendors and their family members to avail various government benefits.” He said the identity cards and licence will also check misuse in business.
