What was the reason for the increasing concern of the city dwellers for providing houses for the poor? To what extent were these philanthropic in nature?

Answer :

The reasons were as follows:

There were many dangers related to fire and social hazards.


During the migration period, a huge number of people migrated causing stress and congestion. The conditions of the living were poor and filthy because of one room houses. There were construction activities taking place on large scale leading to more people living on the road. Also, due to large people migrating housing schemes were planned.


It is philanthropic in nature as poor people got to live under a shelter. But on the other hand, they also faced many problems because of the living conditions. Also, constructing houses caused a huge ruckus economically and created an imbalance in the environment.
