The ultimate goal of the National Housing and Habitat Policy 1998 is to ensure that the basic need to Shelter for All is fulfilled in a time bound manner and a better quality of life is provided to all the citizens of the country by harnessing the unused potential in the public, private and the household sectors. Till such time this goal is achieved, it is necessary to provide some kind of shelter to the absolutely shelterless urban population including street children and destitute women in urgent need of shelter to protect themselves against the vagaries of nature all through the year. In this backdrop, there is an urgent nee d to continue the ongoing
‘Shelter and Sanitation Facility for the Footpath Dwellers In Urban Areas’, now renamed as “Night Shelters for Urban Shelterless” with more vigour and will.
