Failure to remove illegal hawkers impacts citizens right to life: HC

Thursday, 14 October 2021 | PTI | NEW DELHI

Authorities’ failure to discharge their duty to remove hawkers and vendors from no vending zone “very severely and adversely” impacts citizens’ rights to life, a healthy and clean environment, the Delhi High Court has said while directing removal of unauthorised hawkers and vendors in Connaught Place area here.

 The high court gave a stern warning to the officers of New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and Delhi Police, who have jurisdiction over the CP area, to ensure strict compliance of orders and scheme approved by the Supreme Court on unauthorised encroachments.

 A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Jasmeet Singh said the law has to prevail and it cannot allow the city to be taken over by illegal encroachers or vendors.

There should be zero tolerance shown to them and all unauthorised hawkers and vendors should be removed with bag and baggage, the bench said.

 The court directed removal of illegal encroachers and vendors from the CP area and directed the authorities to ensure that the area remains clean on a regular basis and they do not return. It directed the Chairman and concerned executive engineers of NDMC, having jurisdiction over the area, and the Deputy Commissioner of

Police and SHO of the local police station to remain present before the court on November 18.
