The Street Vendors Act, 2014, provides for the constitution of Town Vending Committees (TVCs) to oversee matters related to the street vendors with due representation. The Act requires 10% of the members to be from non-government and community-based organisations. As per the notification issued by Govt. of NCT of Delhi on 17th September 2019, Centre for Civil Society (CCS) has been nominated as an NGO member for 3 TVCs.
We have been successfully campaigning for the effective implementation of the Street Vendors (Protection of Livelihood and Regulation of Street Vending) Act, 2014, through Jeevika, our 'Law, Liberty and Livelihood' campaign. We have also published two comprehensive reports on the status of the implementation of the Act across the country.
