The land development in Mumbai, the Indian capital, has made many lives easier.
But not all of them.
Many families struggle to get by on the $2 a day they get from the municipal corporation.
Many of these families are now looking for work.
Some of them are trying to get jobs in the public sector, as the city’s unemployment rate stands at 12%.
Many are also trying to make ends meet on the cheap.
The land development has made India one of the fastest growing cities in the world.
According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), India’s economy grew at 7.3% in the last quarter of 2017.
According to the Indian Statistical Institute, the number of urbanites in India grew by 9.6% between the last four quarters of 2017 and the same period last year.
But these numbers don’t tell the whole story.
In Mumbai, land is one of India’s biggest commodities.
The land-development boom has also meant that there is a shortage of affordable housing.
The shortage of land has meant that families can’t afford to live in Mumbai.
For many, the lack of affordable homes has meant being unable to access the education and medical care they need.
When the Indian government began building more housing in Mumbai last year, it started by building affordable apartments for those who are still living in the slums.
These affordable apartments were not only for the poor.
They were also for those with children who are struggling to feed their families.
However, many families are still struggling to get enough money to pay for these apartments.
As India’s economic growth continues, it is only a matter of time before more and more people are forced to move out of Mumbai’s slums and onto the street.
At least that is what is being predicted.
