Mohammad Akbar FARHANG [1]

This study aims to identify residential cost in big cities compare to rural areas (Kabul vs Rural). The data was collected through primary and secondary sources from relevant entities and also utilized the empirical studies and surveys conducted in India and Nepal due to authentic data unavailability in governmental organization and also because of their living cost are similar to Afghanistan. Graph and charts are applied to analyze the data. The finding shows that the total residency cost which includes (education, health, transportation, water, electricity, house rent, households costs, environment, municipality and security) costs of 8,633 internally displaced households which are staying in Kabul is $ 72,296,065.40 million per annum whereas the cost of residency in rural areas are $33,216,460.42 million per annum and the difference of urban-rural cost is $39,079,604.98. So, it can be clearly seen that, the cost of residency in rural areas is quite low compared to big cities (Kabul). Also by preventing internal displacement the government can save $39,079,604.98 annually and its indirect impact is that, preventing internal displacement leads Karez revival, farms expansions, agriculture development and farmers can generate income and financially become independent
