The urban development department in Jharkhand will launch a special drive to train street food vendors in all 44 urban local bodies (ULBs) across the state to ensure offerings in their menu are safer and hygienic. Vendors will be trained in Ranchi, Deoghar, Dhanbad, Jamshedpur and in various urban local bodies.
“We have begun providing identity cards to street vendors. Around 16,000 cards have already been issued and we also plan to accommodate vendors in malls and market complexes in all urban local bodies to ease traffic snarls,” commented C.P. Singh, Urban Development Minister.
