The situation lasted increasingly in the following centuries. In 18th century, the crucial case for Ä°stanbul, capital, to abate the augmenting population of city or to curb it. A spate of measures were taken and practiced for solution of this issue. Nevertheless, the excessive population growth seen in Ä°stanbul could not have completely been hampered.
