This creates the slum areas in the cities. Slums are densely populated with poor living conditions with full of garbage, rubbish, improper sewage disposal and dirt. Due to the increasing crowd, there rises unemployment. Due to unemployment, many crimes are increased where the law and order becomes very difficult.
