I believe acknowledgement of debt or gratitude falls short of our thoughts of thankfulness for the simple reason that the gap between the inner mind and the outer manifestation of our feelings and emotions can never be bridged through language. Hence acknowledgement of gratitude always implies much more than what is expressed. Nevertheless, first of all I would like to acknowledge my deep gratitude to my Ph.D. supervisor Professor Joyashree Roy, Department of Economics, Jadavpur University, under whose guidance I have been able to complete my work. My appreciation of her intellectual and moral support knows no bounds. By her valuable suggestions she has virtually steered me through this voluminous task and I feel privileged to work under a scholar of her erudition and vision in the field of Environmental Economics. Words truly fall short for my gratefulness to her for the power she instilled in me to feel positive when confidence ebbed.

I would like to acknowledge my debt to the staffs of KMC, KMDA, KMWSA, BMC, NSSO without whose cooperation my work would have remained incomplete. Their selfless support helped me in an in-depth research work.

I want to extend my gratitude to the staffs of the libraries which I visited during my research like the National Library, Kolkata, Library of the Department of Economics, Jadavpur University and University of Calcutta, the ISI Library, Kolkata for their kind cooperation.
