CCS and Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs: Mapping progress of the Street Vendors Act 2014

We launched our Progress Report on Implementing the Street Vendors Act 2014 at the National Workshop on Street Vendors convened by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, on 8th February. This report evaluates the progress made in institutionalizing mechanisms to protect and regulate street vending since the passing of the Act in 2014.

The report was launched by Shri Hardeep S. Puri, Minister of State for Housing and Urban Affairs, addressing a gathering of over 250 representatives including Housing and Urban Development Ministers from several states, administrative officials, street vendors' associations and civil society leaders. Also present, were Shri Durga Shanker Mishra, Secretary, MoHUA; Shri Sanjay Kumar, Mission Director, National Urban Livelihoods Mission, and State Mission Directors from across the country.

The launch was accompanied by a presentation of our report by Dr Parth Shah, President, CCS. The report can be accessed here. To know more about the research, write to Vidushi at
