FIAN - Delhi


FIAN in Delhi is presently working with the migrant labourers living and working in Sanjay Colony, an urban slum located in the Okhla industrial area of Delhi. As per the FIAN mandate, the team in Delhi is focusing on violations of the Right to Adequate Food and related rights of this migrant population, who have been staying here for about 10-20 years on an average. These migrants from the states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Haryana, came to Delhi in search of employment and better opportunities for their families, however continue to toil with their daily hardships.  

Amongst other problems faced by this migrant community, the most grave is non-issuance of ration cards and subsequent access to the facilities provided by the Government under the Public Distribution Scheme (PDS). The community members in Sanjay Colony work in the unorganised sector as unskilled ‘kataran’ workers, earning much below the stipulated minimum wages issued by the Labour Department of Govt. of NCT of Delhi.
