Growth of urban settlements in India - A Contextual study of India
The life in a city attracts many people from the rural areas and towns who migrate in pursuit of the better jobs and employment opportunities. The major concern among the cities is the governance, the size and the living standards. The expansion of the economic activities because of the economies of scale and stimulated stay in the urban areas led to the unprecedented growth of the Indian cities. This is an Urban century and India is also urbanizing at an enhanced pace in re¬cent decades. The need of the hour is that it has to plan, devel¬op and build a new India which is ecologically and economically sustainable. The present article presents the contextual framework of the Urbanisation in Indian context.
