  20. 20. Problems of UrbanisationProblem of urbanization is manifestation of lopsided urbanization,faulty urban planning,urbanization with poor economic base andwithout having functional categories.Hence Indias urbanization is followed by some basic problems inthe field of :1)Unemployment2) Housing3) Slums and squatter settlements4) Transport4) water supply and sanitation5) water pollution and air pollution6)inadequate provision for social infrastructure ( school, hospital,etc ).
  21. 21. How to stop rapid urbanisationNo single individual can prevent urbanization . Governmentshould make law & do some activities for that ;1 . Give more employment opportunities to villages. Opensome factories or industries in rural areas .2 . Make schools & colleges in rural areas so that ruralchildren dont have to come to cities for education .3. Every day usable materials should be sold at cheap ratesin rural areas.4 Daily wages in rural areas should be equal or as per city .These are the few things which can prevent urbanization tosome extent .
