Bhubaneswar:26/7/17: As part of the initiatives for the development of smart city in Odisha capital, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to provide uniform for the street vendors.
The uniform — yellow shirt with yellow apron, traditional cotton cloth on hand and turban on head — designed by the BMC will add the smart look to the street vendors in the smart city.
While BMC is planning for rehabilitating the street vendors in the smart city, a national level competition was held for designing special uniform for them. Around 87 persons from across the country had participated in the competition for designing different clothes for the smart city vendors.
The designs were selected by a special jury committee. While the design by Proshish Golyan from Bhubaneswar secured the top rank in the list, Shamik Sarkar’s design from Delhi was second and design by Swagat Suvankar from Bhubaneswar was ranked third. They will be awarded with cash prize of Rs 50,000, Rs 30,000 and Rs 20,000 respectively at BMC’s special council meeting scheduled on July 31, sources in the BMC said.
