The Urban Informal Sector and Housing
      Chandra Sabnani, Madhuwanti Latkar, Utpal Sharma
Abstract: With urban population in India growing rapidly, a non-elitist section is created in each growing city. This Section of Society is referred to as the Urban Poor, characterized by an economy which is "below subsistence level", poor Quality of Life, over burdened and/or nonexistent facilities, amenities and basic services. Their "informal" status excludes them from the benefits accrued by mainstream "legal" citizens. They occupy slums within a city, live in shanties and squatter settlements, and work on a daily-wage-basis. Their numbers follow a multiplier growth pattern. They encroach upon prime urban land, live in non habitable dwellings.
