Mera Thela

Mera Thela is a mobile application designed to amplify the link between customers and street vendors.

Mera Thela 

Street vendors are an essential part of the urban economy and traditionally, they have been the main source of supply to the citizens before the onset of the online retail and modern retail chains. With changing lifestyles and building types, it is becoming difficult for vendors to communicate their presence to the customers. To bridge this gap, Fellows from the India Smart Cities Mission of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, designed Mera Thela project that intends to amplify the link between street vendors and citizens via a mobile application.

Mera Thela is scheduled to be piloted in Pune Smart City with support from Pune Municipal Corporation.
