Malad - Hawkers encroaching bus stops is a rising problem for the commuters. Commuters catching bus no. 272 from Malad (west) are facing lot of difficulties because of the hawkers. Not only the hawkers, but even the Rickshaws are forming a queue covering the road and blocking the entry of passengers who want to. Commuters reported the problem a few months ago to Malad bus depot manager, to which action was taken. But the Hawkers are back to hassle commuters. P- North ward additional Commissioner Sangeeta Hasnale said strict action will be taken against the encroachers.
