With the growth the metro line, the congestion has reduced as well as increased. As trees have been getting cut down rapidly everywhere, there is also an increase in the pollution and congestion.

There are a number of sewerage and water lines here that are almost 50 years old, and need replacement. Other issues in this area include garbage mismanagement, irregular water supply and power cuts and lack of adequate parking regions.

In 2008, there were 9,6,361 voters in this constituency, but in 2013, the number of voters increased to 1,03,942. Currently, the number of registered voters is 2,38,614.
