A month after the demonetisation drive, the city is still reeling from the economic fallout.
The city’s housing market has not recovered yet.
More than 500,000 households in the city have lost their homes.
Many of these are in the most deprived sections of the city.
Most of the people who live in the slums of Vizag are poor.
A large number of them have lost income as their houses have been demolished.
It has become a major problem for the people living in the cities.
