As per CSO statistics of 2019, almost 60% of workforce is self-employed/unorganized workers - e.g. - shopkeepers, domestic workers, security guards, street hawkers, light transport & non-transport drivers, technicians, home based enterprises etc. These 5 to 6 lacs self-employed people provide a sizeable contribution to the economy, but have largely been ignored by the local administration and face daily hurdles impacting their ability to grow due to their unauthorized status. To achieve the $1 Trillion GDP by 2027, it's very important that this workforce is able to grow their business activity.
