Rehabilitation & resettlement

Growing industrialisation has led to an increase in the number of factories, etc being set up. This needs a lot of land to be set aside for the development of such areas with the necessary infrastructure. As a result, cities are expanding and resettlement of people is needed.

Resettlement is not just about moving people from one home and environment to another. It ensures that they are able to provide to fulfill their families’ needs, especially, food, clothing and shelter.

It, thus, falls on the authorities concerned to make sure that adequate arrangements are made to ensure this in the new area that the community shifts to. There are mainly two major reasons: (a) Natural Reasons (b) Manmade Reasons for resettlement.

What matters a lot!
