Summary "This handbook comprehensively analyses trends in urbanization using the most recent census data. The study discusses trends, patterns, growth and the socioeconomic characteristics of urbanization as well as the availability of infrastructure, migration trends, and employment opportunities. ... Since the publication of the first edition there have been two important developments that have been incorporated into this edition. The first is the release of the migration data by the Census of India. The data throws up many facts that run contrary to popular belief on rural-urban migratory movement. The second is the launch of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission in 2006. The largest initiative in urban infrastructure development, the Mission focuses on city development."--Book jacket.
