Unplanned Expansion Causes Chaos

Migration into Gairsain results in disorderly development. Gairsain, Uttarakhand has been unable to successfully accommodate the increased flow of migrants in recent years. A large number of people from neighboring villagers are settling in the city every year. In the total absence of urban planning, the town is developing in a totally chaotic manner. Houses are constructed hurriedly without draining systems, and waste water litters the pavements. The town is also lacking proper roads, parking space, water supply and a solid waste disposal system. The disorderly expansion of the city is making the lives of the inhabitants tedious and affecting tourism, which is a thriving business in Uttarakhand. Luxmi, our Community Correspondent in Uttarakhand, is depressed by the sate of the city she lives in. She hopes the local authorities take action to launch a proper development plan that will ultimately improve the lives of Gairsain inhabitants. In particular, she wishes the Village Authority currently ruling Gairsain to be converted into a Municipality, that would be more appropriate to the size of the city.
