Quality of life of slum residents in the city of bangalore

Abstract
The quality of life of the migrant households in a slum of Bangalore is the focus of this paper. Accessibility to vital needs such as housing, water and sanitation, electricity and Healthcare institutions are taken into account to comprehend the quality of life. In addition, migration details of the sample households are discussed. The study exhibits that the households have adequate access to water, sanitation and electricity facilities. Though the houses were mostly semi-pucca, the residents live in one-room houses that are considerably small in size. Besides, they lack access to proper public Healthcare facility. Yet, due to political patronage and the presence of a local non-government organization, the slum residents are facilitated to a larger extent. By making use of the services of such informal institutions and the local community, the State can help in better provision of basic needs and thereby improve their quality of life.
