The six solution of urban problems are : 1. Systematic development of urban centers and creation of job opportunities, 2. Regional planning with city planning, 3. Encouraging industries to move to backward area, 4. Municipalities to find own financial resources, 5. Amendment of Rent Control Act, 6. Adopting Pragmatic Housing Policy.

  1. Systematic development of urban centers and creation of job opportunities: One important solution of our-urban problems is the systematic development of the fast growing urban cities and planning an investment programme which could give rise to a large number of well distributed visible urban centers throughout the country.
  2. Regional planning with city planning: Urban planning is almost city centered. There should be regional planning along with city planning to solve the problem
  3. Encouraging industries to move to backward area: It should be encouraged to open newer and heavy industries in the backward areas distinct. This will also take care of linear development of metropolitan big cities.
  4. Municipalities to find own financial resources: If roads are properly maintained, it provides sewage system, supply drinking water and electricity, and then people will pay taxes properly. If the municipality failed to give service, the trade union will resort to strikes. It is necessary than that private transportation be encouraged. Privately operated bus and tempos services will charge a little more fare.
  5. Amendment of Rent Control Act: Laws which inhibit the construction of new houses or giving of houses on rent must be amended. The municipality should build more houses.
  6. Adopting Pragmatic Housing Policy: In May 1988, the Central Govt. presented the National Housing Policy (NHP) to the Parliament which aimed to abolishing homelessness by the turn of the century and upgrading the quality of accommodation to a fixed minimum standard. Such policy looks to be too ambitious and appears to be auto pain.
