Abstract:
Forced eviction is a menace present in the urban areas which snatches away from the evictees a bunch of their basic rights, and, deprives them from living a dignified and meaningful life. There is a plethora of international and national laws that strive to provide a better life style to all the human beings on Earth. Many 'State' agencies, in the guise of beautifying the city uproot the 'victims' from one place and throw them to another, where they are not able to meet bare minimum needs for sustenance of their lives. Bawana resettlement area is one such example of forced eviction. It will be discussed with a help of certain legal provisions and case laws, how the basic rights of these people have been violated.
