About 80 per cent of the Indian population live in villages. When travelling through the length and breadth of this subcontinent, one can really visualise the difference between rural and urban India.

There is a big difference between urban and rural India. One of the major differences that can be seen between rural India and urban India, is their standards of living.

Poverty, and lack of sufficient infrastructure, can be attributed to the lack of education in rural India.

When considering homes, about three-quarters of the households in urban India live in pucca homes. On the other hand, only a quarter of the people in rural India live in pucca homes. While groundwater is the main source of drinking water in rural India, the urban people rely more on tap-water.
