It beacuse of the industrialaisation,lot people move to urban areas in search of employment.People were in feeling that urban areas were centres for luxury life.

To prevent the formation of slum/urban sprawl in future such feelings should be eliminated from hearts.Create infrastructure facilities,townships in rural areas.Encourage agriculture in rural areas,eduacte them in proper.Provide best infrastructure facilities like Roads,Water,Communication,Education and Drainage systems.Many industries come up in rural outskirts,still people move into urban areas.So its feeling of luxury people had in their mind sticking to the urban areas.

IT and other core industries were to be spread into rural areas there by reducing urbanisation,and creating employment to all categories of society.Instead of people going in search of employment.Why not the govt make measures create employment at their own places inviting all types of industries.

Further importance to agriculture sector should not be forgotten.Provide better irrigation systems for better produce.Protection against natural calamities should also taken care and well planned in advance.

I feel it is growing economy in urban areas making people shift to urban areas.

I think we need to decentralise th metros and big cities. We need more cities to be developed as commercial hubs. 100 such cities inseatd of 5 metros will automatically solve the problem.
