“Arbind Singh, Executive Director of Nidan and National Coordinator of NASVI— which is engaged in social entrepreneurship — identified some solutions: “In September, a Bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha for street vendors. That will reduce chaos in the cities. Positive steps of these kinds should be taken. The challenge is that everything will come back to governance. There is no talk of how the urban poor will get houses. We lack understanding of urban poverty.”
