1:31am UK, Tuesday December 13, 2011 Alex Rossi, India correspondent India's poor are being priced out of slum areas in Mumbai with some shacks being sold for more than £50,000 ($78,091.10). The Dharavi slum, which is home to more than one million people, used to be on the edge of India's richest city. But as Mumbai expanded it now enjoys a prime centrally-located position. Residents of Dharavi can get anywhere in the traffic choked-city relatively quickly. We were shown around one dwelling by Raju. His house is tiny but he shares it with his wife, children and parents. There is a vibrant community life in Dharavi slum Its size though has not stopped him getting an offer of £53,000 for the property even though he does not own the land underneath the building. "There is great interest here," he explains. "There is a commercial complex next door and that complex wants to expand so my house is now very valuable." Mumbai's shanties began life as clusters of illegal dwellings on public property, including parks, roads and pavements. Politicians realising the number of votes on hand made them a permanent feature of the landscape by providing electricity and water. The Dharavi slum is also home to many flourishing businesses and has a unique economy worth hundreds of millions of pounds. As the rag shops, metal factories and food kitchens have become richer so have their owners. Sheik Yusuf, a builder, can afford to leave but says moving out is not an option in a city where the average commute is measured in hours not minutes. But the slum which started as a place for the economically destitute is now out of reach for many. Rajendra, a local politician, fights for the rights of the poor. He says many people now have no chance of ever finding a home. "Land costs more, nobody can afford it. It means the person struggling for the livelihood for their day-to-day livelihood is not in a position to come here. It is unaffordable." It does of course create questions. With India's population continuing to grow and many people migrating from the countryside to cities like Mumbai, where will all these extra people live?

The residents of what is known as the 'Civil Concord District' see no reason to vote in the upcoming legislative elections, they say, politicians have made too many promises but few have seen the light of day. Hundreds of families live in these slums sharing the small accommodation with their children and other relatives. They were keen to show their houses and explain their apathy for the upcoming elections. "Do you want me to vote? For whom should I vote? Just tell me for whom should I vote, Too many candidates have come here and promised to do many things for us, but once they get our votes - we don't hear from the again. We need the politicians to get us out of here, from this neighbourhood, because we're fed up of living here. It has been 15 years of this already." There is no common history of the people living in the slums. Some were pushed into it because of poverty; others migrated into the capital after the violence of the past decades. The government has been working on relocating many of the slum residents into free housing, but the pace of progress has left many waiting and frustrated. The north African country is under pressure to come into line with neighboring states, where the "Arab Spring" uprisings last year pushed out autocratic leaders and bring hopes of genuine democracy for the first time. Algeria's authorities say the parliamentary elections on Thursday area stepping stone towards a more democratic state, but many people do not believe their promises. They expect only marginal change and will thus stay away from polling stations. "For whom should I vote, tell me for whom? There's only our president, we voted for him and we are still with him, but the others aren't credible, they give you many promises and they don't keep any of them,We're fed up we can't stand this anymore, I am 50 years and I still don't have stability." The election is likely to be the most transparent in two decades. More parties than ever before have been allowed to compete, and for the first time the European Union has been invited to monitor the vote. The problem for the authorities is that many Algerians believe elections change nothing.
