Nyayabhoomi actively strives for the protection of civil, legal and economic rights of the citizens, especially of the disadvantaged, by making intervention in governance and politics. Autorickshaw and taxi drivers of Delhi have been our special focus group.

RIGHT TO INFORMATION

We deploy RTI extensively to ensure transparency and accountability in governance. Thousands have benefited directly by virtue of our efforts since 2005. Use of information obtained through the RTI helps us bring about fundamental reforms in administration. The entire autorickshaw service of Delhi and more than one lakh drivers have benefitted immensely. Without the RTI, we couldn’t have gotten the president and vice president of India and the governors in various states to display number plates on their cars. In alliance with other NGOs and activists, we impart RTI training to citizens as well as public authorities.

TRANSPORT

We work on multiple aspects of transport sector including the policy and laws. However, we are better known for our engagement with the auto drivers. The same auto drivers who are much maligned in Delhi and are generally seen as crooks. Nothing can be farther from the truth! They themselves are the victims of apathy of and horrendous corruption at the hands of corrupt transport officials, extortionist auto finance mafia, politicians without a vision, crony capitalists such as DIMTS (the company installing GPS which rarely work), and touts masquerading as leaders of phoney unions.

You have so far heard one part of the story – consumers! It is time that you looked over the fence. Because consumers cannot be happy unless its providers are. Because they have as much right to a corruption-free working environment as any citizen does. And because the service will become the pride of Delhi when we all understand the issues and work together.

VISION 2030

We are creating an ecosystem comprising of 10-15 crore families of unorganized workers who are otherwise subject to exploitation and unimaginable hardships, in addition to absence of opportunities and a bleak future.

We envisage the creation of district level forward-looking trade associations, state level federations and a national level confederation for every key sector. Then they all come together as a Great Confederation. While each unit is independent and functions democratically, they are all bound by common ethos, a set of guiding principles and mutual ‘board’ level linkages.

OBJECTIVES


PLATFORM

To create a powerful platform for the unorganised workers

RESKILLING

To make members future-ready through skilling and reskilling

WELFARE

To facilitate access to government schemes and benefits

ENGAGE

To engage with governments and policy-makers

ACTIVISM

To help members against all forms of injustice and corruption

AID

To do handholding for individual members in dire times




OUTLINE


The plan will use mobile technologies for enrolling members, delivery of benefits, social actions, engagement activities, quickly building public opinion, and mobilizing people on a large scale around a specific cause or an action. Needless to say, deep knowledge and vast experience of Nyayabhoomi’s promoters in the social sector will also help.


RESEARCH AND POLICY


Each unit of the ecosystem will develop deep research, logistical and operational capacities and endeavour to be self-sustaining financially. The ecosystem should become the largest pool of research material, knowledge and leadership that can aid the government of the day in formulating policies and plans, and extending upto the framing of laws, rules and regulations.


EXPANDING FOOTPRINT


As we grow and expand, the concerns and issues of other classes will be taken up too. The audience may be as diverse as the organised labour, middle class and the HNIs. We expect the ecosystem to behave like one huge family as class-walls collapse and even as individuals become more self-assured, more confident and more certain of future.
