Every dwellers of any region has equal right to live a decent life, irrespective of location, caste, gender, religion, occupation etc. But in reality inequality is a persistent phenomenon in everyday life for any society. The present paper intends to examine the availability vis-a-vis inequality of basic amenities across different social groups in Ward No. 2 under Midnapore Municipality. The paper is based on primary sources of data, collected through structured interview scheduled. The amenities selected in the present study viz. safe drinking water sources, latrines within the premises, drainage outlet system, electricity, separate kitchen facility, LPG/PNG connection etc. For the present study with a view to collect the sample, Cross-Stratified random sampling has been applied. It is noted that households of lower social groups is relatively bereft of basic civic services and the availability of basic amenities gradually decline as one moves towards lower social groups. To stabilize an urban segment as well as to minimize the after inequality ULBs should take proper responsibilities about to availability of basic amenities and civic facilities.
