Why Do Slums in India Inevitably Accompany The Urban Growth?Urban expansion in India is very much accompanied with the slum-dwellings. Slums in India grow as rapidly as the urban grows. On one hand the urban society lives a highly modern lifestyle while on the other hand the slum-dwellers are deprived of modernization. What could be the basic reason for such a pathetic condition of the slum-dwellers? Is it a mismanagement in the urban planning? Or is the slum population dwells along side the urban population to meet / provide the basic facilities to the urban population? Why do these slums inevitably grow along with the urban growth in India?
