Abstract

Modern civilization requires comforts in lieu of environmental destructions specially due to urbanization. About 30% population of the country live in crowded and densely populated cities. It is due to more employment opportunities, educational, medicare and infrastructural facilities. Population densities, vehicle population, cutting of trees, solid waste coming out from housing units, water quality and so many other reasons have the impact for pollution in cities. The quality of life appears to be more strenuous and stressful. A case study on Bhubaneswar municipal corporation limits has been conducted and suggestions for improvement are given to avoid the catastrophe of environmental degradation.
