Mumbai, like possibly some other Indian metros, has a unique problem. The vendor has to most often travel far to get to the work of distributing the morning papers.

 

Given the extension of the Janata Curfew till 9am today and the restrictions on travel that were notified, newspaper vendors sent out a list of concerns on account of the curfew. According to a senior newspaper executive, the concerns were genuine as all their staff travels by trains and in sorting and distribution, they come in contact with several people and hence are scared.

 

While the epapers of most editions were published online, the decision on the way forward will be taken at a meeting of vendor associations at 11am today (Monday, March 23).
