Population growth and projection
Population and development are intrinsically interrelated and progress in any component can catalyze improvement in others. In recognition of this awareness the DDP seeks to integrate the population perspective with all development policies to be undertaken in the plan. The population statistics is provided below:

The combination of high population growth and density, poverty, and limited resources makes the developing urban areas distinctive as in the case of Baruipur. This population will not only require additional area for settlement to keep the density in check but also increasing infrastructural facilities to lead a minimum standard of life. The population projection is important because the services and facilities provided by the municipality ought to increase at the same ratio as the population growth. The projected population in the next 5 to 10 year should have the infrastructure and the economic stability and social standing for a good and healthy life. Thus a systematic development of the basic infrastructure is the need of the day. The projected population figures are as follows
