Energy Conservation Awareness Campaign Regarding Socially Marginalised People of India: A Case Study of Slum Areas

Alka Sharma Grover and Abhilaksh Grover
Abstract—Almost all the aspiring economies follow the same path during the development phase, i.e. cities getting transformed into mega cities, towns to cities and small hamlets to towns, inviting a mammoth transmigration of human resource. Unable to bear the expenses but certainly wanting a slice of the economy, rural migrants create clusters on the outskirts of the urbanized area, which are commonly called slums. Deprived of the amenities the dwellers do what comes most naturally to deprived humans, steal the resources such as power [electricity]. Therefore a study was conducted to understand the impact of this very important resource of power, needed so much for economic development, on the marginalized sections of the society in the periphery of Chandigarh. They were also given legal awareness regarding punishment for theft of electricity. The campaign was taken positively by the slum dwellers and authorities.

Index Terms—Conservation, energy, kundi connection, slum.
