Shramiks of Narela

In the months of September and October, a research team at the Centre for New Economics Studies undertook a felid study with the objective to visually document and archive the lives and daily work lifestyles of some of the most vulnerable migrant workers working in the Narela region of NCR Delhi. During the course of this ethnographic study, the team interviewed a pool of fifteen respondents with the aim to study the changing Industrial work landscape in Narela after the industrial relocation in 1996. This photo essay aims to shed light on the nature of work available for workers, worker profile, access to basic amenities, work-contract and gendered variations in patterns of work.
