Street Food vendors to modernize with govt. help
Posted On: 13-06-2008 16:34:14 PM

The food-processing ministry is proposing to launch a new scheme — Street Food Campaign —aimed at transforming unorganized street food vendors. The ministry has taken an initiative along with some NGOs to upgrade street cuisine in at least 10 cities in the next couple of months. These include Bangalore, Lucknow, Agra, Guwahati, Jaipur, besides the four metros of Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. The guidelines of the scheme will be rolled out in another month’s time.
The upgradation costs will be borne partly by the government and partly by micro-finance institutes. In Delhi, for instance, the Ministry is looking at developing the Chandni Chowk area as a Food Street by organizing the street vendors on the lines of food streets in some of the international cities. This, in turn, is expected to boost tourism opportunities in the Capital. The vendors will be provided the necessary infrastructure like clean water for cooking and hygienic surroundings.
