When the Sunday Funday program was announced on Hussain Sagar, it felt like good news to the vendors and hawkers selling their stuff. However, all excitement has died down as the HMDA and GHMC officials are now collecting money from pushcart vendors and hawkers.


One newspaper in the city took up some investigation and found that the civic bodies were indulging in collecting money indirectly. Ever since special programs are being organized on Hussain Sagar, small-time street vendors are being charged ‘rent.’


In fact, 20 percent of the income they make is being taken away by HMDA, and GHMC officials complain to the hawkers and sellers. Some part of the rent is also being given to police officials. So, the vendors and hawkers are now forced to hike the prices for visitors to make up for the ‘loss’. They maintain that the officials have been going about their job by promoting the zero-check mechanism.


While the vendors and sellers did make good money on Sunday Fundays and Ganesh immersion, they have to pay higher rents for their carts to cart owners, who in turn have to shell out money to the civic officials.


Meanwhile, those visiting Hussain Sagar complain that they are being forced to pay higher charges for items that are available at much cheaper rates elsewhere. When approached, the officials said they were unaware of any such practices. They further maintained that they would keep an eye on it.
