The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has planned to set up food trucks in 50 different locations in Mumbai. It also plans to beautify the footpaths in several parts of the city. The food trucks are only allowed to sell cooked food, not fruits and vegetables. Reportedly, in each ward, there will be only two food trucks available in the region, depending on the amount of area available.  

BMC has put forth a detailed food truck policy and float tenders. An auction will be held for giving slots to the food trucks in Mumbai. Reportedly, all food trucks will require a NOC from the traffic police and other departments, and also the BMC will identify the location and fix timings for the food trucks as part of the policy. They will be giving some of the food trucks to the women's self-help groups in Mumbai. 

Earlier, the state tourism minister Aaditya Thackeray announced the launching of food trucks to boost tourism in the city. But due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, the actions got delayed. BMC has reserved around Rs 200 crores in 2021-22 budget to develop food hubs, renovation of spaces below flyovers and beautify the footpaths.
