Here goes latest data as on 22 Nov 2019. It’s published here. Global stats Total nodes increased from 2204 as from Aug 2018 to 3184 now in Nov 2019.

India's digital slum problem

Anurag Bhatia
India has a slum problem as many of us know. Slums are a serious problem and there’s just no easy way to fix them. One cannot just push thousands and thousands of people out while at the same time quality of life in slums is terrible. One thing which happens a lot in India is the fact that Govt. does nothing when slums are getting established and once they are established situation gets out of control.
