Traffic congestion due to unauthorized vegetable vendors is a common problem. They are removed by anti-encroachment squad and they come back again. Reason ? They have no place to go and they have no options but to run their shop for a living. Dayashankar Tiwari has proposed to set 25 state-of-art vegetable markets in the city. These markets will have a parking space for vehicles, lavatory, electric supply, vendor platforms and benches. This will stop unauthorized vendors from flocking the road side and causing traffic jam.
Vendors selling Fish and Mutton will also be accommodated in the market. This will also lessen problems of customers who have to park their vehicles on heavy traffic roads to buy vegetables. Markets will be established at Pardi, beneath Pachpaoli flyover, Mangalwari bazaar, Dahi Bazaar, Mahal market (on Kelibagh road), Babulkheda, at Jadhav Square, Mahatma Fule Market, Gokulpeth market and other areas.
