The problems of the urban poor are seen in their most acute forms in the metropolitan cities of India. Here the urban poor, consisting mainly of recent migrants from rural areas, live in squatter settlements, often devoid of the basic necessities of life. They also form that section of the community most vulnerable to the socio economic or environmental hazards which are generated by the processes of growth or development. This volume brings together papers by leading Indian scholars on the social, economic, political and spatial dimensions of urban poverty. The papers also examine the policy measures adopted by the respective governments to ameliorate the conditions of the urban poverty. The papers also examine the policy measures adopted by the respective enactments, executive actions or institutional arrangements. This book provides an insight into the problems of urban poverty which are concentrated in metropolitan cities of India and also furnishes basic reading material to scholars and policy makers interested in these problems. Printed pages: 233.
