NULM Scheme Guidelines in Hindi
To reduce poverty and vulnerability of the urban poor households by enabling them to access gainful self-employment and skilled wage employment opportunities, resulting in an appreciable improvement in their livelihoods on a sustainable basis, through building strong grassroots level institutions of the poor. The mission would aim at providing shelter equipped with essential services to the urban homeless in a phased manner. In addition, the Mission would also address the livelihood concerns of the urban street vendors by facilitating access to suitable spaces, institutional credit, concerns, and skills to urban street vendors for accessing emerging market opportunities.
The core belief of the National Urban Livelihoods Mission (NULM) is that the poor are entrepreneurial and have an innate desire to come out of poverty. The challenge is to unleash its capabilities to generate meaningful and sustainable livelihoods. The first step in this process is motivating the urban poor to form their own institutions. They and their institutions need to be providing sufficient capacity so that they can manage the external environment, access finance, expand their skills, enterprises, and assets.
This requires continuous and carefully designed handholding support. An external, dedicated and sensitive support structure, from the national level to the city community levels, is required to induce social mobilization, institution building, and livelihood promotion.
