Cons

* unoccupied site needed --> nearly all land occupied by slums


* impossible to rehouse everyone


* site well outside of city centre --> some worse off due to commuting


* encourages rural-urban migration


* still shortages of services


* some lose original businesses


* some richer people in the area complain about newcomers --> say theft has gone up


* people moved to poor quality land --> Sanjay Ghandi Nagar is a former quarry
