Darjeeling municipality hasdecided to make the town?s main promenade Chowrasta a "no-vending zone" on the request of morning walkers.

By "no-vending zone", the municipality means other than 12 temporary hawkers' stalls on Mall Road, no other shop would be allowed to be set up on Chowrasta.

Most of the shops are concentrated on Mall Road, which the municipality plans to remove. Nehru Road, a path to Chowrasta, would also be part of the no-vending zone, as will be the road leading to Hotel Alice Villa.

Municipality chairman Amar Singh Rai said no vendors, other than the 12 allotted temporary space on Mall Road would be allowed in the area.
