Though most of the people in south live in villages, there are important centers of urban concentration even here. The urban south carries all the birth pangs of underdevelopment. Unplanned growth, traffic congestion, sprawling slums are some of its basic features. The present study concentrates on Human Development aspect of these urban conglomerates. The study chooses West Bengal a State of India as its focal point. The study reveals huge inequality among the urban centers in West Bengal. It also shows limited mobility across several states. There exists wide cleavage between the urban area of advanced and backward districts. Though there is some improvement on the whole.
