Visakhapatnam is situated in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The population in the city has seen a rapid increase over the years. The main occupations of people living in the area include activities related to fishing and agriculture. However, the place is also known for its industry, IT and financial services.
Even though Visakhapatnam has seen growth and development economically, its infrastructure does not match with the progress; it has not expanded. On the other hand, migration of people who come to the city in search of better opportunities and livelihood has increased. This results in Urban Poverty. A large chunk of people do not have access to sound living conditions and are found to be suffering the most.
