The rights of street vendors are being “grossly affected”, the Delhi High Court has observed and asked the AAP government to expeditiously set up vending committees through elections to address their grievances.

A bench, headed by Justice G S Sistani, asked the city government to set up a Town Vending Committee (TVC) in each municipality and consider the representations of the street vendors in the national capital.The court gave the direction after Congress leader Ajay Maken, along with some NGOs and traders’ associations, alleged that the law on setting up of town vending committees has been violated by the government as these bodies do not comprise the elected representatives of the vendors.

The high court said that the matter “may be looked into expeditiously, as the number of cases is increasing and, on the other hand, we find that there are obstructions on roads and pavements as well and in the absence of formation of TVC, rights of street vendors are being grossly affected .”
