Analysing the Street Vendors Scheme, 2019

Street vending has been a significant source of livelihood in India for centuries. However, street vendors have long faced many challenges, including police harassment, eviction, and limited access to basic amenities. To address these issues, the Delhi government introduced the Street Vendor (Protection of Livelihood & Regulation of Street Vending) Scheme in 2019, under the background of the Street Vendors Act of 2014. This study will evaluate the implementation of the Street Vendor Scheme and its overall effect on street vendors in India. The primary data has been collected through 10-12 interviews with street vendors. The research will assess the procedures outlined in the scheme for licensing, relocation/eviction, seizure of goods, and infrastructure development.
