In recent years all over the world, many nations is undergoing lots of challenging in social, economic, institutional, religious, environmental and transportation issues in their developed and developing cities. Such issues are predominantly seen in developing countries due to the development differences among the developed cities and under developed villages. The main reason behind such differences is due to more focus over the cities than in rural areas. On focusing over India, urbanisation is a pandemic and swarming problem due to uncontrolled migration. Due to the impacts of urbanisation India is facing a large number of social problems now.
