A part of this paper was presented in an India Urban Space conference held in Goa on 10th and 11th February 2006. The present paper is a considerably enlarged version. Apart from the text the paper also contains several tables relating to migration, urban mobility and relevant provisions of the 74th Constitution Amendment. While the volume of the paper is thus increased, the data in the tables and other information, which usually can be accessed only through multiple sources, will be found useful for a better understanding of the issues.
