Support to Urban Street Vendors (SUSV)

Support to Urban Street Vendors (SUSV) under National Urban Livelihoods Mission (NULM) were issued in December, 2013

  • Street vending provides a source of self-employment and acts as a measure of urban poverty alleviation. Street vending also has a prominent place in the urban supply chain and provides inexpensive and convenient access to goods and services to all segments of the population including the poor. Street vending is therefore an integral part of the economic growth process in urban areas.

  • The Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) seeks to address the concerns of urban street vendors by facilitating access to suitable spaces for vending, institutional credit, improved skills and social security linkages. The Support to Urban Street Vendors Component of DAY-NULM sets out the strategy and operational guidelines with regard to this component.

Objectives of SUSV:

The objective of the component is to address the vulnerabilities of the urban street vendors through a multi-pronged approach. This includes:

(iii) Infrastructure development of vending zones in the city

(iv) Training and Skill Development

(v) Financial Inclusion
