Dr. C. N. Ray "Socio-Economic Profile and Planning of Street Venders in Surat" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-1 | Issue-5, August 2017, pp.301-311, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd2282.pdf

Street vending is an important activity related to informal sector in urban areas as it provides job opportunity and means of livelihood to the urban poor but Urban Local Bodies consider it as illegal activity so far. The present study comprehensively covers the sociological, economic and space issues taking the case of Surat which is one of the fastest growing city and second largest city of Gujarat. In Surat, vendors can be seen all over the city but concentration is very high in major commercial areas that come under the central, west and east zone. Due to predominance of commercial activities in these areas also attract a very large number of people and have become prime location for informal activities like vending. The overall gender distribution indicates clear predominance of male vendors in Surat. Women are marginalized, among most vendor types. About 73% of the space in the natural markets is being used by vendors against movement space for customers and other activities. Opposite relationship has been found between area of the markets and number of the vendors. As the space reduces in comparison to number of vendors the size of unit reduces and its opposite, when number of vendors is less in comparison to the space available, the size of the unit becomes larger
