According to the survey West Bengal, with 134040 houseless people comprises 7.78 % of the nation's total homeless population. 68.52 % homeless population in the state are males while, 31.48% are females. People living, eating and sleeping on the streets is a regular site in India. People who cannot afford to buy a roof over their head end up on the footpaths and flyovers of flourishing metros of India. They are elderly people, physically and mentally challenged, flood and drought victims. Even women, children and unemployed youths embrace the footpath as shelter.
