This article examines the making of “World-Class” Delhi through the relations between street hawkers and the new middle class. It shows that the poor depend on the new middle class for their livelihoods, and the lifestyles of new middle class are enabled by services provided by the poor. While they enable and participate in Delhi's transformation into a so-called “world-class” city, the reconciliation of competing visions of urbanization—one geared toward social reproduction and the other subsistence—is what is at stake in contemporary inter-class relations
