This study is an investigative effort into the complex processes of flow of materials and energy into the city, their use patterns and end results by way of disposal of waste and out flow of finished products. The environmental impacts of these; well being of people and their perception of environment are also studied. It is found that while the city residents are comfortably placed with regard to housing and community facilities, they are not well placed so far as possession of economic goods and services is concerned. Varrying perceptions of housing and neighbourhood; conditions are explained in terms of variations of income, education, age and sex. Perception of physical and social environment are found to vary in dir ferent pockets of the city and these are related to the background conditions of the residents. Flows of consumption goods into the city are directed, by and large, towards South Hyderabad, which has a huge consumer potential in its large population pool. Fuel flows, however, are directed more towards North Hyderabad for use in Railways, Industries, etc. Higher income groups are found to use more energy efficient fuels. Industries which are by and large, located in the north-eastern and north western parts are heavily dependent on places outside the state for raw materials as well as markets. Wastes that are an end products of the urban consumption process are not deftly handled, and lead; to various types of environmental nuisance, diseases and hazards. Environmental conditions are be coming alarming, especially in the rapidly expanding industrial are of the city. Printed Pages: 167.
