Abstract:
Homelessness is treated as a financial problem. There has been working many factors combine behind the homelessness. According to literature, two major explanations are dominated. First is related to the internal problem that is individual level whereas the second one is related to the institutional failure. But it varies concerning time and space due to the variation of definition and nature of homelessness. In the context of Delhi around the majority of the homeless population has been living a long duration, they accept homelessness as a lifestyle. So it is very difficult to come back into the mainstream of society without proper planning. There is a prior need for planning to know what the major factors are which determines the homelessness on a major scale? In search of answers to these questions, a field survey (November 2014 to January 2015) had conducted in the three selected districts which possess eighty percent of the total night shelters users of Delhi. There are mainly four major causes responsible for homelessness of the majority. These are a financial problem, domestic tension, structural lone lineless and marriage, and relationship. Concluding section of this study offers some practicable policy measures to implement downstream approaches that end or substantially reduce homelessness.
