Hands down, we love street food and we’ve often ignored the cleanliness factor because of course, our cravings have been stronger than our morals! Who can resist chatpata chaat or the saucy chicken rolls dripping with oil or the khatti chuskis- aah. Definitely there are other hygienic places to eat at but till the time we don’t taste the street’ish vibes in our grub, it doesn’t really make the cut for us.

And then there are those friends of ours, who wouldn’t step out to munch on such street-food because they’re always so finicky about the water-ice-oil the shops use, wageirah wageirah.

So we have news for those friends of yours because finally, they can head out with you too, to relish a sesh of street-food binging after work, weekends or during breaks!

What’s the News?

This August onwards, Gurugram’s Sector 38 will be home to the first clean street food market in the state which is a big win for picky eaters!

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has teamed up with Gurugram’s local administrative authorities to set-up this market and it’ll be modeled as an open-air food court! It’ll also have around 100 vendors wearing identical uniforms, gloves and name tags which will make the framework even more liable.

The entire expanse of the market will be cleansed daily and it’s also being said that the vendors will be provided with guidelines on how to deal with their customers in a cordial ways.

The food is preparations will be intensely monitored by the FSSAI and they will ensure that the market makes its way to the cut-off of the standards of safety and hygiene, as instructed by them.

According to TOI, KK Sharma, the nodal officer for the project has stated,
“We have completed the survey and pre-audit for the market and even trained a hundred vendors in public dealing. We had selected two places for the markets- one opposite Medanta in Sector 38 and the other in Sushant Lok but due to non-cooperation from the traders in Sushant Lok, we are only going ahead with the one in Sector 38 for now.”

In 2015, Sector 38 had been earmarked for a similar model project but it never took off. It is being assumed that this clean street food zone will be functional August 2019 onwards and once it is established, the authorities will be on the lookout for other spots around the city.

Maharashtra Unlock: BMC issues new relaxations for Mumbai amid lockdown

Mumbai suburban 'local' trains will not resume operations for the general public.

The Maharashtra government on Monday decided to continue with Level-3 COVID curbs in 14 out of the 36 districts here, including state capital Mumbai. While partial relaxations are awarded to the other 22 cities, the high caseload and emergence of fresh infections in the listed regions have discouraged the administration from withdrawing the restrictions in these regions.

Parallelly, the state has authorised the local civic body to decide the level of curbs in 3 of these 14 districts, namely Mumbai, Mumbai suburban and Thane.
