A hawker is also known as a mobile food vendor/Itinerant. They also need to register themselves with the FSSAI. They do not have fixed premises from which they will operate. Thus, there is no need for submitting documents for premises at the time of registration. It is always advisable for them to seek registration on their own to save cost.

However, the petty retailers of snacks or tea shops do not fall into the category of mobile food vendor / Itinerant as they operate from fixed premises and as such is required to seek FSSAI Registration if turnover is less than 12 lac and in case turnover exceeds 12 lacs then state level license is needed.
