The pavement dwellers of the country contributes substantially to the nation’s GDP, however, there is a constant state sponsored effort to evict these unfortunate yet important people of our society. 

The article 21 of the Indian constitution ensures them the right to life and personal liberty and the apex court of the country has set a clear guideline of no eviction without rehabilitation. The state, however, openly flouts the guidelines and defies the constitution. Not only the state, the Indian railways, Port authorities can evict anyone without rehabilitation, as per their policies, thereby directly contradicting the Constitution and the Supreme Court.
