INTRODUCTION

One of the main objectives of the City Corporate cum Business Plan (CCCBP) is to improve quality of life of people and to attain economic self sustenance through economic development. The economic future of countries is increasingly being determined in their urban areas. The process of decentralisation is shifting power and resources to cities and their citizens, raising the importance of how well cities are managed, and how well town economies are performing. Two alternative urban scenarios are emerging - one is characterised by increasing poverty, social exclusion etc. and other is characterised by equitable and sustainable growth. Now, achieving equitable and sustainable growth of the cities has emerged as the great challenge in front of town managers. Before taking any action for achieving equitable and sustainable growth understanding the social and economic base is essential. In this chapter an effort has been made to understand the social and economic characteristics of Arakkonam town and its surroundings leading to some strategy proposals for making the town livable with sustainable social and economic development. 2.2 OVERVIEW OF ECONOMIC & SOCIAL CHARACTERISITCS OF ARAKKONAM MUNICIPALITY Arakkonam is also one of the biggest junctions in Southern Railway.
