India’s slums

A new report says that one in six people living in India’s urban areas lives in slum housing. Those homes are normally crowded, cramped and lack indoor toilets and running water. Dr. Sunil Kumar of the London School of Economics and Political Science studies urban housing issues in India. Today, he tells Worldview what the Indian government is doing to tackle the problem.
