From the score card system conducted by the ULB to identify problems in slum areas, it has been revealed that the condition of basic amenities in the slum areas, like water supply, drainage, solid waste management, sanitation, roads, street lighting etc. is not up to the standards, ranging from 25- 30 in rating out of a total score of 60, in case of other parameters like livelihood, literacy, health and education, the score varies from 35- 48 out of a total score of 100, which implies that the BPL population is in a vulnerable situation which readily needs to be addressed.
