HOUSING AND SLUMS:
Total area under slums is 19.5 sq.km (14.5% of total municipal area) and total slum population accounts for around 25% of total population . Most of the slums have been notified by municipal corporation and are given all basic facilities like streetlight, water and public sanitation. Most of the public toilets and drinking water facilities of the town are located in the slum areas. The physical conditions of the slums are poor with unhygienic sanitation, settlement structure etc. Shortage of housing facilities has contributed to the emergence of slums.
