She also said that after constitution of 'Town Vending Committee', this revenue can increase up to Rs 200 crore.

Mayor also said that registration of street vendors of weekly bazaar and issuing them license will help bringing transparency in the system other then saving the vendors from corruption and persecution. “The weekly markets play an important role in providing livelihood to hundreds of small vendors and fulfilling the needs of local residents so it is important to save them from harassment.

Lakh of people earn their livelihood in the national Capital by adopting such practices but still only a fraction of them were awarded license by the municipal corporations.
