Chandigarh: 2,443 vendors tagged permanent defaulters, may lose licence too | Chandigarh News


CHANDIGARH: The Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has identified around 2,443 registered street vendors as permanent defaulters and given them the final opportunity to pay their fee by July 26, failing which their license will be cancelled and their names will be deleted from the registered vending list.
These vendors have not paid their monthly fee to the MC since 2017, the year street vending registration started in the city. Vendors registered themselves on payment of Rs 200 registration fee and one-month payment in 2017. After that, they did not pay anything in the past over three years, due to which the MC included them in the list of permanent defaulters.
There are around 3,000 more defaulters but they have not been included in the list of permanent defaulters because they did not make payment for the last few months due to the pandemic. They will be given time to make their payments without notice, but since the aforementioned 2,443 vendors did not pay after registration in 2017, they will not be given any further chance after July 26 and their license will be cancelled permanently.
“The decision about permanent defaulters has been taken after going through the entire record, data and their sincerity toward payment to the MC. It is surprising that they did not make payments to the MC for the past over three years, which shows their attitude to become registered street vendors and thus we have given them the last opportunity. If these many vendors fail to deposit their payments, their IDs and payment lockers will be closed permanently,” a senior official said.
According to records, currently there are around 10,912 registered street vendors, out of which around 3,513 are from essential service providers (ESP) category, while around 6,259 are from non-essential service providers (Non-ESP) category and remaining 1,140 are registered mobile vendors. Earlier, the number was over 9,000, but since the MC recently registered more vendors who don’t have Chandigarh Adhaar cards, the number of registered street vendors has reached around 10,912.
