Now a days, villages and small towns have more aged population as younger generation deciding to settle in metropolitan cities and towns for better job opportunities and lifestyle. In my opinion, it is not a good sign as cities are getting over populated and villages remains to be under developed. In this essay we are going to discuss the negative consequences due to this movement.
Firstly, people moving to cities, it creates tremendous pressure on the city infrastructure including housing, medical, law and order which means more people to be managed by authorities and ending up inefficient in everything, for instance city like Mumbai often struggle to manage their local people. In addition to that everything gets expensive in cities because of difference in demand and supply. For example, renting or purchasing a house in a city is very expensive compare to the small village with lesser people.
Secondly, countryside will not attract new businesses or opportunities because it lacks new age people to work for them, this eventually means lesser jobs for the remaining people. Further, government will also not get tax money from the business or people to do a development which will add more misery for the people staying there. To illustrate this, compare any rural areas for any medical facilities, job opportunities, or even the infrastructure with that of city to see the difference.
In conclusion, I would say that economy should start planning to develop the rural areas so that people should stop migrating to cities, add incentives to the businesses to establish so that better future and life with new opportunities available for everyone.
