Dharavi

It is often rated as the largest slum in India and has been in existence since the colonial era. Ironically with shifting locations this heart shaped location is now in the heart of Mumbai. The statistics roughly come up to about 6000000 slum dwellers which could even be upto a million. It has the Sion line on one side, Mithi River to one and Bandra to another. This slum area forms a major part of Central Mumbai and are all illegal dwellers living in unhygenic conditions in thatched huts with roofs piled up with cloth sacks, asbstos, etc. This area is about 472 hectares.
