The informal sector has traditionally been a source of services for middle and higher-income groups in cities through the provision of services such as security, carpentry, gardening, construction, plumbing, electrical work, health care support, housekeeping etc. yet these services are not available in an organized and reliable manner in urban areas.
The Objective of CLC:
The NULM cities will establish City Livelihood Centre (CLC) with the objectives to address these gaps and create a platform where:
The urban poor can offer their goods and services in an organized manner to the potential buyers, i.e., The CLC would bridge the gap between demand and supply of the goods and services produced by the urban poor. The urban poor can access information and business support services as and when needed by them which would otherwise be not accessible to them.
