What is Food Truck Policy?As per the sources, Municipal Commissioner Pravin Pardeshi has directed Additional Municipal Commissioner Suresh Kakani to come up with a Food Truck Policy. This policy includes placing foldable chairs and tables on nearly 40 per cent of the city’s footpaths without causing any blockages to the pedestrians. For this, BMC will also seek approval from citizens to avert any kind of opposition to this policy.
Areas Identified for the Policy!Presently, seven tourist spots have been identified to launch the Food Truck Policy. These include Mumbai’s Nariman Point, Bandra Bandstand, Bandra–Kurla Complex, Worli Seaface, Girgaum Chowpatty, Juhu Chowpatty and area near NCPA. At each of these places, a maximum of five food trucks will be assigned a parking space initially and could operate between 10 PM to 6 AM. To keep a check on Solid Waste Disposal and ensure efficient enforcement of law and order, Food Inspectors will hold a regular check on the food trucks.
