Muzaffarpur District

The informal settlement of Muskan gali looks nothing like a slum with better water, sanitation and hygiene standards, thanks to the formation of a settlement improvement committee.

As we enter the narrow lanes of Muskan gali, after wading through the unruly traffic in a rapidly urbanising Muzaffarpur, we are greeted by Noorjehan outside her house. Between the gali and the main road, the city has grown. It has a population of 3.5 lakhs as per 2011 Census. This has risen now to five lakhs, say estimates. The city got chosen to be a smart city in the early 2018 but the work towards it has not got off the ground as yet.

An embankment along the Bagmati is under construction here and the villagers from Benipur, Bharthua and Jivajor are sitting here on a Dharna, since 25 th December 2007 demanding rehabilitation that would be caused due to construction of the embankments on either side of the river under the banner of Punarwas Sangharsh Samiti, Benuipur.
