After a meeting with the stakeholders, Chaudhary said that the street vendors have encroached government land. As per law, they are entitled to receive a compensation which will be announced by the State Government in due process.

"Question of satisfaction or dissatisfaction does not arise in case of encroachment. For the time being the street vendors will be provided alternative spot to continue their business," he added.

Chaudhary further informed that in case of private establishments, the land will be acquired in due process through land acquisition or direct purchase as decided by the Government.

The BMC Commissioner has assured the stakeholders to publish beautification & developmental blueprint in next 2-3 days.
