Migrants in Smaller Cities

New Delhi: December 13,2012

According to the Census of India in 2001 the population of million plus cities was 7.81 crore which increased to 16.07 crore in 2011. In 2001 there were 35 million plus cities which constituted 37.85% of the total Urban Population, whereas in 2011 the 53 million plus cities constituted 42.62%. In 2011, out of 53 million plus cities, 30 cities have shown declining growth rates during 2001-2011. As per Census-2011, only population of class I cities (more than 1 lakh population) is available. In 2001, the total number of Class I cities was 441 which constituted 62.29% of the total urban population whereas in 2011, the total number of class I cities increased to 468 constituting 70.24% of total urban population.

It is not the policy of Government to either check or facilitate migration to the cities as the process of migration is driven by demographic and economic factors and distortions in the process may have undesirable consequences on economic growth and development.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Urban Development Smt. Deepa Dasmunsi in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
