Abstract

Though the slum dwellers enjoy all kind of facilities in spite of their low income status having a residence in the city with dectrification, water facilities and so the basic needs enjoyed by them.  Hence it becomes a shelter to the large section of the labour force in the city.  The labour force if not settled in the city, will not be able to come to the labour work in the city and cannot be made to settle out of the centre.  In the process of cities measures including beautification for demolition and eviction become a compulsory action.  Not all times the slum dwellers are offered another settlement or rehabilitated.  So they become “Urban refugees” in their own land.
