Raipur in Chhattisgarh, once had approximately 130 lakes. That number stands at 37 today. Restoration efforts are visibly limited to their beautification and not their benefit to the people.

The population of Raipur has increased over the years and with it, the demand for land. Encroachment along with the unplanned construction of residential colonies, independent houses, commericial complexes and industrial structures have resulted in 93 lakes disappearing. Even the 37 lakes that are in existence are highly polluted; the water isn't fit for drinking or bathing. However, slum dwellers in Raipur don't have too many options.
