How does industrialisation and urbanisation go hand in hand?
- Cities provide markets and also provide services such as banking, insurance, transport, labour, consultants and financial advice, etc., to the industry.
- Many industries tend to come together to make use of the advantages offered by urban centres.
- In the pre-independence period, most manufacturing units were located in places suitable for overseas trade like Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, etc. So, these cities became pockets of industrially developed urban centres.
