They are instructed to collect the information regarding the type of business the state vendors were doing, the profit percentage, family position, social status, Adhar and ration card details of the street vendors.
“According to the 2001 survey, 2 per cent of the merchants were street vendors,” said master trainer K V Srinivas Rao and requested the people to give the factual details to the officers.
State coordinator L Venkatesawara Rao said it was important to find out whether the street vendors were from cities or villages on the basis of their Aadhaar cards or ration cards.
