The Urban Social Pattern of Navi Mumbai, India Malathi Ananthakrishnan (ABSTRACT) This research thesis examines the emerging trends in urban social patterns in Navi Mumbai, India. Unlike the other planned cities of India, Navi Mumbai was specifically built as a planned decentralization of a large metropolitan city. The research focuses on explaining the urban social pattern of this particular case study. An urban social pattern reflects the social characteristics of the urban setting. In the case of Navi Mumbai, the government had a social agenda of promoting a social pattern based on socioeconomic distribution rather than an ethnic one. Analysis of the data provides an insight to the results of this social agenda, and provides a basis to frame new ones. Thus, the study not only addresses a basic research question, but also has policy implications. The research involves a comprehensive review of secondary source material to establish the theoretical framework for the research. The review also involves an extensive inspection of urban social patterns across the world to better contextualize this particular case study. The research puts forth a model that explains the social pattern of Navi Mumbai by social area analysis using variables, which are drawn from social aspects of any city and indigenous factors of Indian settlements. The model depends not only on statistical analysis but also on interpretation of local conditions. This research situates the emerging social pattern in geographic literature in developing countries. This research was supported in part, by a grant from the College of Architecture and Urban Studies, Virginia Tech.

The urban social pattern is one of the many aspects of the urban form.Chapter 1: Introduction 1. and political events may influence the physical design and pattern of a city. this paper will augment existing knowledge about social configurations of planned urban development in Asian regions. Different characteristics are drawn from the factors influencing the physical design and cultural aspect of the city. land use pattern and ethnic classifications will be used as key variables to study the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. The basic research here involves the search for an urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. This research determines how the present social pattern relates to various theoretical frameworks. These include the ethnic composition of the city. Traditional Indian cities have evolved over the centuries. migration. Urban patterns occur because of repetition of these elements.1 Research Problem Statement The overall objective of this thesis is to determine what common patterns. and their social pattern is characterized by residential segregation based on ethnic. The purpose of this thesis is to delineate and interpret the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. religious and linguistic classes. and the housing market. race. The literature review shows that a specific study of Navi Mumbai has not been previously documented. Thus. An interpretation of the emerging social pattern reveals something of the social character of the city.

The presentation of data and its analysis is in the fifth chapter. 1. This first chapter is the introduction. its contextual framework. The third chapter is a comprehensive review of the secondary sources to establish a context of the research question. The urban social pattern also serves as a framework for further research. The fourth chapter outlines the methodology used for analysis of data and explains the data source and method of data collection. .

Urbanization and subsequent suburbanization of Bombay have created a linear city such that the central business district (CBD) and residential areas have become further and further apart (Figure 2.

Greater Bombay came into existence only after the Bombay High Court Act of 1945. the Bombay Municipal Regional Planning Board set up two committees to study the development of Bombay. This committee appointed the Bombay Municipal Regional Planning Board to develop the concept further (Gadgil Committee. V. In 1966. 1986) The Bombay Metropolitan Regional Planning Board in its report wrote Bombay the Beautiful is no more beautiful. Many parts of it are not even tolerably clean and healthy. lack of housing and infrastructure and high land values were the major problems identified. The 1967 development plan estimated a housing shortage of 131. Bombay’s infrastructure facilities were stretched to the limit. the Bombay Improvement Trust was created. In the 1960s. Commercial and residential areas were mixed because many merchants carried on business from home (Tindall.

Otherwise. Le Corbusier explained "the plan is based on the main features of the 7V rule (Appendix B) determining an essential function: the creation of sectors. The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. This would have a great drain on the financial resources of the government. These were: i decentralization by the design of self-sufficient townships(nodes). i residential neighborhoods (sector). i single-use zoning as opposed to the traditional multiple-use zoning The result was a single-use zoning pattern with distinct areas for industrial. Each township had several sectors. 1973).

The higher income groups would pay a surcharge for housing. each family could own only developed land. 1973).6 Design Principles of Navi Mumbai The conceptual design of Navi Mumbai was developed at the height of Modernism. A sector centrally located within each node took on commercial activities. The sector was based on the Spanish cuadra of 110 to 100 meters. The Government of India’s policy on publicly financed housing has been to build 21 sq. commercial. The square had a significance in Hinduism as this perfect geometric shape was thought to be . 1977).

The neighborhoods were self-sufficient and had their grocery store and primary school. In Navi Mumbai. m. land would be leased under a 30-year repayment system to private cooperative housing schemes and private owners. The average cost of construction was Rs. CIDCO decided to use a maximum surcharge of 15% on housing for highest income group to compensate for a maximum subsidy of 45% to the lowest income group (CIDCO. The total land of Navi Mumbai was divided into thirteen townships. Some of the highlights of the design elements of this plan were sector planning.

Navi Mumbai’s founders saw the construction of large amounts of new housing as an opportunity to break down demographic divisions and to enhance social equity. Housing for the middle income and high income groups would be in the form of CIDCO housing. It recommended construction using cheaper concrete. For the lower income group. using bamboo instead of steel reinforcements and setting up of local retail shops where residents would be able to buy inexpensive building materials for building their homes (swadeshi) (CIDCO.shall inform all the institutions of the national life (Article 38).

This Act emphasizes that the management must be done by elected representatives of the people who will account for two-thirds of the board. This committee is responsible for the preparation of the draft development plan. This ensures a bottom-up process with direct inputs from the citizens (UNCHS, 1993).

Comprehensive Plan. The direct result of this Act is the creation, in 1992, of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation. This allowed CIDCO to give up its role as New Town Development Authority (CIDCO, 1995). A heavy-handed approach was used by the government to implement its social policy. As most of the housing was built by CIDCO, a government agency, the government could control, if not regulate, the distribution of the population on socioeconomic basis. Households desirous of buying a house built by CIDCO had to submit an application that stated the dwelling size they preferred. CIDCO allotted these houses, depending on when construction was completed, on a rolling basis. This was intended to ensure a random distribution of the various linguistic and religious groups of the population. The pattern expected would now be one based predominantly on income. 2.9 The Reality of Implementing the Plan The planning of Navi Mumbai began in 1971. The results of each of the planning objectives can be studied now. The first objective of the Development Plan of Navi Mumbai was to reduce congestion of Bombay by absorbing immigrants and attracting some of the present population of Bombay. Table 2.5 Population Density in Various Sectors of Bombay(BMRDA, 1978 in UNCHS, 1993) 1971 1981 1991 Population Density Population Density Population Density (in ’000s) (pop/ha) (in ’000s) (pop/ha) (in ’000s) (pop/ha) CBD 1120 1659 1031 1527 849 1258 Central Bombay 1950 1349 2254 1559 2309 1597 Bombay Island 3070 1447 3285 1549 3158 1489 Bombay Suburbs 2900 544 4958 930 6751 1266 Navi Mumbai1 128 600 328 617 Over the 1981-91 period, there was a considerable decline in the population of the CBD and Bombay island. The increase in the population of the suburbs and Navi Mumbai accounts for the decline in the CBD and Bombay island. Outmigration to other cities and countries is negligible (BMRDA, 1978). The main reason for the shift was because of (UNCHS, 1993): i dilapidation of older buildings in Bombay i cheaper and better housing facilities in Navi Mumbai i better employment opportunities in Navi Mumbai i lesser commuter distances involved The second objective of the development plan was to bring maximum jobs consistent with the Gandhian principle of self-sufficiency (swavalambhan). CIDCO’s support of the Industrial Location Policy brought more jobs to Navi Mumbai. The sectors that had maximum growth in Navi Mumbai, were trade (39%), finance and services (27%) and manufacturing (18%) (BMRDA, 1992 in UNCHS, 1993). The wholesale agriculture produce

residential area increased from 213 hectares in 1981 to 531 hectares in 1991.

market for vegetables, foodgrains, oil seeds, sugar and spices was moved from South Bombay to Navi Mumbai (CIDCO, 1973). A separate railway siding and truck terminal were constructed to facilitate effective relocation. This involved the relocation of 30,000 jobs from Bombay and the reduction of 5000 truck trips per day. A new iron and steel stockyard complex has been developed in Navi Mumbai. This means the relocation of 25,000 jobs and a reduction of 1000 truck trips per day to Bombay. However, the economic agenda, which was based on agriculture and cottage industries, is no longer effective because of the government’s redoubled commitment to a policy of industrialization. Navi Mumbai continues to be exploited as a major industrial zone (Engel, 1991). CIDCO's third objective was to provide physical and social amenities in Navi Mumbai. The land use of Navi Mumbai shows these amenities (Table 2.6 and Figure 2.6). Table 2.6 Land Use of Navi Mumbai, 1993 (in sq. km.)

All primary schools are within walking distance. This eliminates the need of expensive transport for small children. There is at least one college in every node and Vashi node has both medical and engineering colleges (CIDCO, 1995). Medical facilities are provided by private medical practitioners. Every node has a hospital run by the Mahatma Gandhi Medical Trust. Community health car centers are also there (CIDCO, 1995). In its fourth objective to provide an ecologically friendly environment, CIDCO has not been entirely successful. The area of woodlands has been constantly decreasing (CIDCO, 1995). Most woodlands are in the form of mango groves which form a part of neighborhood parks. In the conceptual plan, streams flowing from the hillsides were to irrigate the woodland corridors. No significant effort has been made to utilize this resource. However, holding ponds have been constructed. Promenades have been built along them and they are being used as recreation areas (Parab, 1997). The fifth objective is the primary focus of this thesis. The objective to prevent ethnic enclaves and to promote a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics was fairly ambitious. In order for its success, a perfect control of the market is required. The analysis of the data will show the outcome of the objective.

This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 19 This design also strongly supported the need to use the government’s power and machinery to promote the uniform distribution of people and prevent ethnic enclaves. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai.

A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context.2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . If the residents build the buildings themselves. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. Education. religion. communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns.

It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. if government agencies or contractors build them. The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation.

Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space. This representative sector is defined as the smallest area that exhibits the characteristics of the urban settlement. The physical form is a variable of the social and built pattern of the city. 1971). The built form is influenced by factors as (Alexander. They are nature. These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern.3 Factors Influencing Urban Form Many factors influence the form of cities. In the study of Navi Mumbai. Thus. buildings and infrastructure. 3. “The typical sector represents the formal characteristics found throughout the area and thus acquires some universality” (Lozano. The rural land may also have been . a hill top site was the utilitarian response to any important building . Traditional cities have used physical forms to interpret cultural and religious beliefs (Lozano. Since the characteristics are universal (within the frame of study) they may be studied by a spatial representative sector. 1987): i land ownership i street patterns i existing land use i economic considerations i planning regulations i political and historical events The physical expansion of the city is always bound and guided by land ownership.

Traditional settlements were shaped by (Lozano. linguistics and ethnic background also influence urban patterns. A city replaces existing land use.

Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. While some processes are culture-specific. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. 1987. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. However. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. These factors are (Alexander. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. Priests. commercial buildings. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers.

Kshatriya. 1992). 1992). marriage and death ceremonies distinguish one caste from another. unfortunately. 3. Stratification implies a differentiation based on a set of criteria. linguistic stratification and religious stratification. Vaishya and Sudra are said to have come from the mouth. The dominant caste legend is the Purushasukta legend whereby the Brahman. language. religion or occupation (Bougle. The social stratification is very deep and varied. language. thighs and feet of the Creator. 1974:8). The term ethnic group refers broadly to people “with some similar characteristics which go beyond their mere place in a societal division of labor” (Brass. 1992a). all elements can not be arranged vertically. 1992). religion). Although no hierarchy is mentioned in the Sukta. this popular caste hierarchy is not clear throughout the Indian subcontinent (Srinivas. Thus. differentiates itself into only hierarchical status containing inequality (Gupta. However. rituals. linguistic. As many individual criteria are . sometimes reinforced by common work roles.

Jainism and Sikhism. The linguistic distribution is not only diverse but also very complex (Das Gupta. At this time they felt the need for a political party of their own. The characteristics of the population regarding bilinguals. 1985). A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. . Jainism and Sikhism stemmed off from Hinduism and are very similar to Hinduism. the Muslims were in power over most of India. Bengali. prestige and income to form a socioeconomic status. “In most folk-memory the Muslims of India had been ruler. 1974). Islam was a religion that came to India from outside and is culturally very different from Hinduism. Malayalam. Muslims became apprehensive of Hindu domination. it may be better to create a composite index of education. During the Mughal rule (16th to 18th century). An overwhelming view of Hindu-Muslim relations in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is that Hindus advanced due to their enthusiasm to take up western education and government employment (Kaura. Anger and frustration broke out as violence as Hindus moved from Pakistan into India and Muslims moved from India to Pakistan (Hodson. 1970). degree of control over the language and relationship between the languages affect their social communication. not subjects” (Hodson. occupation. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. While the Congress party represented the majority of the Indian population. Marathi. 1985:11). 1977). 1985). Telugu. Hindi was chosen because it was the language spoken by the largest percent of the population while was a result of the British legacy. The framers of the Indian Constitution chose Hindi and English as the official languages of the government (King. Urdu and Punjabi. After the decline of the Mughal Empire and the loss of political power to the British. Tamil.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 24 linked to other attributes.5. absorbing other religious doctrines and never proselytizing. The major languages of India are Hindi. The wake of Independence brought with it violence and terror in the Indo-Pakistan borders in Punjab and Bengal. India is the birthplace of two major religions –Hinduism and Buddhism – and two minor religions . However. Hindus and Muslims drifted apart in the issue of independence from British rule. The census of India 1951 (immediately after Independence) recorded a total of 179 languages and 544 dialects in India.5.3 Religion Religion and language have provided the motive power for nationalism in India (Brass.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century. In 1906 they formed the All-India Muslim League. Kannada. 1997). 3. which culminated in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. Buddhism. There are many religions in India. 3. The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion. Gujarati. The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service. the Muslim League represented only the Muslim population (Brass. A Hindu revival period in the late nineteenth century to arouse enthusiasm for political action made the Muslims more insecure. 1974).

1970). 1992a). a demand for a national language also arose. This rationale of composite nationalism influenced policies related to religion and language (Das Gupta. and vice versa. The union government declared that fifteen year deadline after Independence would be given for transition of official language from English and Hindi to only Hindi. Hindu-Muslim riots broke out even in Bombay which has normally been a very peaceful city. The Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was broken down by Hindu fundamentalists. 3. The inequality and economic differentiation cause conflict between the castes and classes. Agitation and violence broke out in many non-Hindi states over this issue. The Tamilnad Students’ Anti-Hindi Agitation Council objected to both the removal of English as an official language and the declaration of Hindi as the sole official language. many political leaders advocated for the use of Hindi as a national and official language. as it was difficult to isolate only one family. The South Indian state of Tamil Nadu was most vocal in the Anti-Hindi agitation. The better control the Tamil people had over English. In the early 1950s. 1988). confusion has always existed about the status of Hindi as official or national language. This confusion in terminology is the basis for most language-related problems in Independent India. The separatism movements seen all over India are all based on ethnicity and inter-caste rivalry (Bose. Compromise was . 1971). had led them to better job opportunities.5 Implications of the Sociocultural Factors The implications of caste and class are closely related to those of power and wealth (Dumont. This issue can not only be seen at the time of partition in 1947 but also was seen during the recent communal violence in 1993. Certain castes are dominant in a society. ethnic conflicts are easily targeted towards these select neighborhoods. a majority of the leaders preferred a composite nationalism. Writers in Hindi commonly refer to Hindi as Rashtrabasha (state language) which may signify language used by the state. The Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India declared the fourteen major languages listed as national language (Gumprez. Pakistan officially declared itself as a Muslim state. The partition of United India into India and Pakistan came with many problems. Language conflicts have also occurred in India. Traditionally these castes had either wealth or power. Although a minority of Hindu leaders in India felt that India should be declared as a Hindu state. There was strong opposition from non-Hindi areas in general and South India in particular (Hindi is a IndoAryan language while the languages of South India belong to the Dravidian group). However. In a multilingual society there may be a plurality of national languages.5. there also been conflict between other regional languages. This was not seen in more heterogeneous neighborhoods. Although a majority of the rivalry has been for and against Hindi. In many places. a state language with an unique status (Das Gupta. 1989). In some villages. the Brahman priests had more power because it was believed that they were the representatives of the Creator on earth. a synonym for official language and like state religion. Small Muslim enclaves within a majority Hindu neighborhood were targeted. 1970). When the ethnic groups occupy distinct neighborhoods. Repercussions were felt all over the country. they believed. all castes looked up to the farmer caste because they were important landowners and were wealthy (Srinivas.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 25 However.

The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. The science of architecture and planning.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. The temple also influences the siting of other land uses. Jainism. padas. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form.1 Circle and Swastika depended on the natural features of the site. orientation of buildings and arrangement of internal rooms based on astrological and religious criteria (Volwahsen. This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. In planning the town a vastupurusha mandala which was most auspicious. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass.1). The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B. Judaism and Christianity found their way into India.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 26 finally reached in 1963 under the Official Languages Act. The square was used in the creation of the vastupurusha mandala. a perfect rectangle was accepted. class. The multi-dimensional society was soon complicated by the emergence of other religions. 3. violence sparked off by language issues has continued to occur in India. Hinduism. However. If it could not be a perfect square. Sikhism were born in India while Islam. Stratification of the society had to accommodate these religious factors. Buddhism. governed the alignment of roads. Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. 1986). which contributes many elements to the urban form. both from within and without the country. The town wall enclosed the mandala. 1969). The final shape of the town Figure 3. Prime commercial and residential land was located near the temple. religion and language is the issue of group identity which is the cause of most ethnic conflicts. Despite the Act. Social assimilation and mobilization are a part of any evolving civilization. which was the terrestrial representation of the cosmic universe inhabited by Brahma. . the creator. The streets ran from north to south and from east to west. Related to castes. Vastushastra. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. In the initial stages it was in the form of caste differentiation as prescribed by the Hindu/ Vedic texts. The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life. cyclical and swastika (Figure 3. C to 12th century AD). and which had as many padas as there were to be residential sectors was selected. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. 1974). The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language.

1986). It has been shown that rural values have penetrated the urban philosophy due to large-scale migration.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 27 The residential districts were divided among the four castes. and wood formed niches in the urban pattern. Large migration of people from the rural area. Areas for selling of specific goods – cloth. As the built form depends on the social characteristics portrayed by its residents. D. 1988). On the periphery of these urban centers. 3. 1978). Vaishyas in the southern part and Sudras in the western district. this has led to segregation and creation of enclaves within the city. jewelry. jali (carved screens) and projecting balconies (Kopardekara. The Brahmans and Kshatriyas lived in the parts of the town which were climatically more comfortable sheltered from the hot sun. The three leading theories described below are based on the built form of the city. and insufficient infrastructure in cities has led to the creation of slums and shantytowns (Misra. Kshatriyas in the eastern and southeastern part. the Hindu tradition continued. Characteristics from medieval times are Islamic in nature (14th to 17th centuries A. “In the case of India. metalware. At the time of independence in 1947.) was the third phase of historical urban form. but also on socioeconomic factors (Ramachandran.). 1980). During this time. The morphological components include buildings used for trade warehouses. and Hindu elements of this period are not distinct from earlier ones. The characteristics of the social and built form of the city contribute to its pattern. 1980).7 Theories of Urban Social Patterns . Many researchers have tried to fit Indian urban growth into a theoretical model. This led to the development of commercial centers and zoning based on Western market principles. Williamson and Mills. and the apparent timelessness and permanence of village life” (Hall.the cantonment . The residential character throughout this period was segregated. Generally. many researchers have pointed to the lack of penetration of urban values into the countryside. 1992). These are the theories which pertain to the built and social form of the city. The Islamic elements included the mosque and domestic architecture which emphasized the purdah through enclosed courtyards. the same theories are being used to describe the social patterns as well. military establishments . Residential areas associated with the commercial area were contiguous or within the commercial area (Hall. India inherited a complex urban fabric. pottery. D. 1989). Diversification of professions due to industrialization in the post-independence era has resulted in further complexity (Becker. The colonial influence (17th to early 20th century A. There was further subdivisions within each district depending on the sub-caste. 1980). counting houses.were developed (Hall. especially seen in the port cities associated with the East India Company (Mills. In India where occupation and caste are synonyms. Residential segregation is no longer based only on occupation and caste. A generalization of these patterns has been made. and the south-west monsoon. The urban segregation was based on function and occupation premises. the Brahmans worked and lived in the northern district.

and studying how the city grew (Scargill. which had factories and slums. The basic premise in this model was that of succession and invasion whereby population groups gradually moved out as their economic and social status improved. Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn. With affluence. political and social activities. others dynamic in nature. 1929 various groups of society led him to conclude that the city was made up of concentric zones with the central business district (CBD) at the center (Figure 3. 1992). The three leading Western models are: i Concentric zone model i Sector model i Multiple nuclei model These models have become frameworks for studying urban social patterns across the world (Hartshorn. The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. The public transport system had also improved significantly and allowed the middle-class to .2 Concentric Zone Theory Burgess’ research on the distributional pattern of Source: Burgess. This model was based on Burgess’ experience in the American mid-west cities. and especially in Chicago. The movement was towards the periphery. The next zone had lower income housing.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. Figure 3. 1929). The CBD core had all major commercial. most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development. some static. 1979). and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess. 1990). they moved to better housing districts (Burgess.2). which were being taken over by the expanding CBD.1 Concentric Zone Theory This theory put forth by Burgess in 1925 related population mobility and societal organization to the physical expansion of the city (Burgess. accessibility to a single-centered city. This was surrounded by a transition zone. High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas. it is a descriptive framework to CBD analyze spatial organization of land use in a city Transition and its change over time. 1929). 3. In the early 1920s. 1929). 1992).7. 1979). It was partly based on Low income economic factors. Thus. This also forced an outward expansion. It also had older residential districts. The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. free Middle income market. These immigrants first found cheap housing in the inner city. Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded. Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city.

The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. 1990). It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. 1978).2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. Neighborhoods for each income group are common. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center.7. 1939). 1992 . This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. 1979). 1979).3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt.4). and Golledge. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked. Hence. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. S (Hoyt. The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. 1992). 3. This is not a generalized model. However.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. 1979). The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill. 1979). 1939 3. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3.3).7. 1978). Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. 1978). For example.

However. Family status in American cities shows a concentric distribution. The use of these three indices for analysis is a social area analysis. education.8 Case Studies of Urban social Patterns The study of the urban social pattern of a city primarily focuses on the residential land use (Herbert and Thomas. The data source was census tracts. The city was viewed as a part of society. A neighborhood is the basis for formally organized residential space.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 30 3. This is . It is only the most convenient one. parenthood. The concept of neighborhood units became popular since the1920s in planned settlements (Perry. 1992). are suitable modifications of the concept (Timms.8. These were social rank. but also an expression of socioeconomic and cultural values of the people. safety. Analysis of individual cities shows that the pattern is not uniform and is characterized by residential segregation. The values are also related to family. 3. For example. neighborliness. In the analysis of urban social patterns. In Western cities the reasons for non-uniformity have been identified as socioeconomic status. housing conditions and material possessions. 1971). Social rank used the variables. Individualistic frameworks. ethnic status and family status (Timms. 1971). every city has some constraints. has been under strong criticism (Hartshorn. It is not only a physical design concept. ethnic status used religion and social groups. This concept. 1979). Critics say that neighborhood unit strongly emphasizes physical environment. In the built environment this corresponds to ethnic neighborhoods (Timms. Ethnicity causes the social phenomena of segregation. the neighborhood unit is used as the unit of analysis in the study of human settlements (Herbert and Thomas.1 Western Cities Many studies of the social and physical urban pattern have been done. family status used the variables related to demographics and type of house.marriage. 1971). community and social and civic responsibilities such as aesthetics. family status and ethnic status. A neighborhood unit is not the only model or universally appropriate unit of analysis. but on cultural ones. The main assumption here was that social rank is related to transportation links which influence residential location in a sectoral manner (Scargill. 1990). security and identity. housing choices may not be made on economic basis. 1979). The outward mobility is related to different stages of life . It serves as the building block to construct the whole town. it does not address the needs of a social environment. and social change was expected to be reflected in studies which were repeated over a time period (Herbert and Thomas. 1929). three indices were used. 1990). The broad generalization of the social rank produced a sector model. The non-uniform pattern is consistent over many cities because similar households exert similar housing choices. As a family’s needs for space increase. value of home. social status and retirement (Scargill. they move outwards. It is assumed that any planned city consists of neighborhood units. This type of urbanization is also related to the housing market described by Hoyt (1939). employment. which analyze the physical environment under consideration. however. Hence. 1990).

But. 1990). 1986). Social morphological models constructed for the Third World cities show that there is a central concentration of commercial activity and a number of residential neighborhoods. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. 1980. land use. A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. The modern place is more spacious. The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. Thus. Around the plaza was the important buildings including a church. but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi.6) (Herbert and Thomas. and surrounds old Delhi (Figure 3. The center of the city was the plaza. Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities.

The nature of traditional social status and the interdependence and spatial interpretation of diverse. A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. new definitions had to be made. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. But. The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. in general. 1975). The social ties are horizontal and vertical. The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. climatic and aesthetic factors. Soon. the farther away from the center. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function. and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. the poorer the household (Cornelius.3 Indian Cities In cities of India. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. 1977).

However. Calcutta) has low-density commercial centers surrounded by high-density residential neighborhoods. i North Indian cities had low female employment rates. Although the neighborhoods that result are not corporate groups in the sense in which they are defined. . and that the temple acted as the most meaningful focus for the spatial distribution of social characteristics.

Their influence and interplay causes residential segregation. low literacy. cities that were well developed even before the colonial period. He postulated three dimensions as being important contributors to residential segregation.9).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 34 regional festivals if not usually celebrated in the region within which they live now" (Hall. Ahmad (1965) did a factor analysis of the socioeconomic characteristics of Indian cities. such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. The centroid of the system represents the optimum location for accessibility to all three functions. These three dimensions would form concentric zones (Figure 3. colonial cities.

The urban social pattern of these cities has been generalized. class. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. religion and language. The historical evolution of cities has supported this stratification. The lifestyle factor in North American cities relates small nuclear families with higher education achievements and better employment opportunities. In the case of Navi Mumbai. migration or ethnic group represent the ethnic factor. this is not evident due to the existence of multi-generational families. The residential neighborhoods of such cities are not as well defined as they are in the American cities. skills and professions. Male dominance. The reasons for migration are also varied – they may be migrating as a result of natural calamities. In Third World cities. The growth of cities across the world has been studied. In such a case study. These characteristics stratify the society into vertical and horizontal systems.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 37 3. In the American cities. Migration may also be restricted to the men of the family. this social area analysis must take into consideration the indigenous factors. power and status. Three leading western theories describing the urban social pattern of cities dominate the literature on urban social patterns (Hartshorn. the residential neighborhoods have been designed using the neighborhood principle as those designed in America. These are concentric zone theory. the researcher’s knowledge of the local environment is important to contextualize the pattern more appropriately. or in search of opportunities in the city. However. the sociocultural factors are related to caste. Status in Third World cities is based on family membership or socioeconomic class. Here. In the case of India. 1992). Stratification causes social inequality in terms of wealth. . Traditional Indian cities have grown over a very long period of time. family status and ethnic status. These theories have been combined in a social area analysis to describe the social pattern based on a few social variables. the components derived from social area analysis were termed as socioeconomic status. The lifestyle depends on ethnicity and migration. Land-use is also similar in that it is predominantly single-use zoning. an effort was made to prevent this social stratification and use residential allotments to fulfill this objective. The households are generally large with a range of ages. A market economy strongly influences the lifestyle of the citizens of Navi Mumbai. it is appropriate to use a social area analysis to delineate the urban social pattern. In the design of Navi Mumbai. Social area analysis assumes that a few independent factors can explain the spatial patterning of a city. The components of the analysis of American cities are not entirely apparent in the Third World cities.9 Conclusion The urban social pattern is the complex manifestation of the underlying cultural values of the population within a particular built environment.

Hoyt. Earlier. Under these conditions. Although these analyses have been more effective for studying North American cities. mapping of social area analysis for a large sample of cities showed that socioeconomic status. the urbanization component showed a concentric ring pattern. It was first put forth by Shevky and Williams (1949) in a study of Los Angeles. It is a . 4. The study involves the categorization of a city based on social rank. 1955). The research investigates the relationship between the spatial pattern of Navi Mumbai and the different theories of urban social patterns discussed in the literature review. Generally the economic model showed a sectored pattern. The general issue of social areas will be accomplished through social area analysis. The family as a unit becomes weaker.Chapter 4: Research Design Determining the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai is the primary research objective of this thesis. economic.socioeconomic status. They were considered to be very narrow and not universally applicable. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. These involve population. urbanization index.1 Social Area Analysis Social area analysis provides a broad framework for analyzing the social patterns of a city. This analysis classifies census tract data into three main constructs . and ethnicity confirmed the validity of the analysis. urbanization and segregation. The increase in industrialization creates an occupational status system (Timms. 1978). The issue of spatial distribution of different kinds of people in Navi Mumbai is of primary interest. The social area analysis may be done statistically by a factor analysis. and housing characteristics. Social area analysis shows how family characteristics. These three factors also corresponded to the theoretical models proposed by Burgess. The pattern of the city may be determined by statistical analysis or by discerning people’s mental images of the city. These factors are taken into consideration in social area analysis. religion and ethnic background. The theories put forth by Burgess. The analysis looks at the variables at once and at their respective locations in their distribution. studies in Calcutta. the city was analyzed as a composite made up of three layers. Hoyt and Harris and Ullman. The aim is to identify key combinations of different measures that provide an adequate basis on which to differentiate the sub-areas from one another (King and Golledge. immigration of rural population leads to segregation based on language. family status and ethnic status. Cairo and Helsinki showed some useful generalization. Better transportation systems increase mobility and lead to a greater sorting of population (Cadwallader. there was considerable criticism about the choice of variables. The basic premise of social area analysis is that a city cannot be studied in isolation from the overall society (Shevky and Bell. A set of variables describing the social structure of the city can be used in the statistical analysis. economic status and ethnic background produce a certain spatial pattern in the city. However. 1985). Thus. Cities are complex entities that have many different functions performed by many different people. 1971). and Harris and Ullman will be the theoretical framework for the conceptualization of the social pattern of Navi Mumbai.

This database provides aggregated information about each node (township). and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern. is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social patterning will occur. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory. education.2 Hypotheses As discussed in the literature review. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. Social structure in India is a result of cultural. 1990). This provides a spatial hierarchical data set.

The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale.357 Survey Coverage 6656 4219 2125 2034 2282 2530 2506 544 % of total 24 26 23 22 25 19 18 23 The issues of validity and reliability arise in the use of census data for testing the hypothesis.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27.

The census data is not 100% reliable.161 Sanpada 2. For a social area analysis. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels. 4. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. Table 4. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. Finally. is census data. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above.338 Belapur 9. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables.5. All data is standardized. 4. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. This is a detailed stage of analysis. the sector is the unit of analysis. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the . Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. and compare it to other cities.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995.283 Nerul 16. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. data covering a large area is required.056 New Panvel 9. the units of analysis are not identical. An error of 5-8% is expected. although variables are related. cartographic mapping. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data.007 Airoli 13.

The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution. 1978). 4.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix. Finally. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated). The rotation normally removes the negative loadings.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix. The first matrix is a simple data matrix.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables. Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. A variation greater than thirty percent of the total population from the mean (15% on either side of mean) is used here to show unequal distribution. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components. then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous. This approach to classification is very subjective. These restrictions are (1) there are k common components (2) underlying components are orthogonal to each other (3) the first component accounts for as much variance as possible. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix. certain restrictions are imposed. The elements of the eigenvectors that are used to compute the scores are called principal component loadings. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. The . The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation. Generally variables with communalities less than 0. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor. and so on" (Kim and Mueller. The second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. This is varimax rotation. the matrix of component scores is computed. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean. It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns. and results in a simpler pattern. In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity.5. Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. "To obtain the initial solution. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation.5. 4. Corresponding communalities are also estimated. 1986). 1986). Characteristics of the urban social pattern can be revealed by considering the relationship within groups.

A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. Distance coefficients are linked at low values. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. This method joins similar observations. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. . The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework.0. then connects the next most similar observations to these. namely Vashi.0 to -1.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. and so produces better dendrograms. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. as is the correlation coefficient. The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. 4.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. 4. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai.5. principal components analysis and cluster analysis.

PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together. although the government policy was to prevent the formation of ethnic enclaves. The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. In summary. At the sub-regional scale as there is a smaller percentage of CIDCO-built houses.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 64 households speaking Malayalam. individual households have exercised their choice. and a strong ethnic component is seen.6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale.

6.2.2 Family Status and Concentric Zone Theory The study of many cities across the world shows that the family status construct displays a concentric pattern. Figure 6.10 shows a possible scenario in Vashi for a variable representing the family status. The variable selected to describe the family status is ownership of apartment. In the descriptive analysis, this variable showed a great degree of variability. The purple color represents the range within which the mean falls. The colors red and orange are immediately above, and immediately below the median value while yellow and green represent the outliers or extremes. Figure 6.10 Hypothetical Concentric Zone Pattern for Family Status Variables The number of sectors which falls within the mean range is very small. Sectors which have slightly more or slightly less percentage of apartments built by CIDCO are represented by red and orange. It is important to note that five sectors are colored green while one sector is yellow (Figure 6.11). This shows a high degree of variability in the data.

6.2.3 Ethnic Status and Multiple Nuclei Theory Multiple Nuclei theory supports the spatial pattern of the ethnic factor. A possible solution is mapped for any ethnic variable in Figure 6.12. A language variable and a religion variable were selected from the data set for mapping. The mapping of language and religion variables shows a segregation of both of them. Yellow and green colors, which represent the extremes in the data set, are present in both the variables (Figure 6.13, Figure 6.14). This is especially true of the variable Muslim, which shows a largely non-uniform distribution.

6.3 Summary The set of figures below shows the mapping of the cluster analysis as well as the individual factor scores.

Figure 6.18 Score 3

Although the four maps above (Figure 6.15, Figure 6.16, Figure 6.17, Figure 6.18) show that there is a different colored sector within a group of one color, the multiple nuclei pattern is not very obvious. However, looking at the descriptive analysis, principal components analysis, cluster analysis and the mapping collectively, the multiple nuclei pattern can be inferred. The descriptive analysis brought out the fact that the spatial pattern is

The mapping of individual variables and factor scores verifies that within a fairly homogeneous group of sectors there exists a dissimilar sector. The clustering indicates that some sectors are dissimilar from others. . The principal components analysis shows that the cause of this spatial pattern is ethnicity. as the pattern is not uniform. This is the multiple nuclei pattern of an ethnically driven spatial organization. In conclusion. 6.4 Potential Utility of the Research This research is a starting point for further studies in spatial patterns in Navi Mumbai. The aggregation of household data at the sector scale has limited this research from drawing out the finer details of the spatial pattern. The policy of the government to promote social heterogeneity influenced the type of residential construction in Navi Mumbai. examining the policy instruments and policy goals. However. • • putting forth a new theory to generalize social pattern in planned cities in India. a pattern did emerge at this present stage.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 6: Interpretation and Discussion 73 not uniform or heterogeneous. Future research could involve: • • Delineating the pattern at intervals of time to study the change in pattern. scaling down the study to stories of individual households to reach a more detailed level of interpretation. As Navi Mumbai has been constructed over the last 25 years. the policy has not been successful. the pattern is strongly influenced by factors as year of occupation of the house and reasons for moving.

Bombay is the financial and economic capital of India. The religious divide was used in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. It was also influenced by the concept of the city as a melting pot (Engel. These theories explain the urban social pattern . The important objectives of Navi Mumbai were: attract some of the immigrant population. thus. Religious tensions have always existed in India. Three leading theories put forth were concentric zone theory. Households would normally place this preference based on how much they can pay. However. caste. Planning policies in Navi Mumbai were strongly influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. Housing would be allotted according to the preference of size of dwelling provided by applicants. Navi Mumbai is still dependent on Bombay for much of its activity. support an aggressive industrialization policy. strongly influenced by ethnic variables. Partition and the first years of independence were. and provide an infrastructure which would promote ethnic heterogeneity. The thesis addresses this social objective. The other feature that is unique to India is the existence of many languages. 1991). Areas dominated by Muslims are common in most cities in India.Chapter 7: Conclusion The purpose of this thesis is to delineate the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. The draft development plan of Navi Mumbai had very strong functional and social objectives. The review of secondary source material shows that urban social patterns have been studied across the world. This was the first cause of separation in residential neighborhoods. Navi Mumbai is separated from the metropolis of Bombay only by the Thane Creek. and formulated a policy to support it. This particular case study was chosen for two reasons: Navi Mumbai is the first planned city that is not a capital city or industrial township. raise the standard of living and reduce social inequalities. One of the social objectives in the planning of Navi Mumbai was to use the government machinery to diversify the spatial distribution of the population based on socioeconomic criteria. The Muslims came to India as invaders. Traditional Indian cities have always had a strong ethnic component in their urban social pattern. religion and language. The government had a very practical interest in avoiding ethnic confrontation. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. The culture of this race of people is very different from the Hindus. The segregation is attributed to the ethnic variables. and the government had a specific social and political agenda. Ethnic enclaves have always characterized traditional settlements in India. It was hoped that a majority of the residential construction could be achieved though a policy of swavalambhan (self-reliance) and swatantrya (mutual selfhelp). Political and administrative boundaries in independent India were decided on linguistic lines. The Hindu laws and treatises specified residential locations for different castes. Every effort was taken by the government to make Navi Mumbai an independent city and not a suburb or satellite city to Bombay. The government hoped that this would distribute people based on socioeconomics and break barriers based on religion and language. India. The government also decided to take up most of the initial building construction.

In the case of Navi Mumbai this is important because of the policy to prevent segregation based on ethnic variables. The methodology used was that of social area analysis. Twenty-three sectors of Vashi were then analyzed. The second methodology is principal components analysis (PCA). In Navi Mumbai. The PCA reduces the dimensionality of the data into a more interpretable form. At the regional scale the analysis was done between the eight nodes to study their similarity. and demographics. These scales were the regional scale of the nodes (townships). The software package SPSS was used to do the analysis. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. Succession and invasion based on social and economic status is the basic assumption of this theory. The methodologies were techniques of multivariate analysis. grouping of variables is expected to be under the three constructs. income and education under the socioeconomic construct. The hypothesis put forth in this study is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social segregation will occur. Four methods were used to analyze the data. Since. special emphasis has to be given to the ethnic components. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. Next.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 75 and its change over time. sector theory. is an analysis primarily of economic variables. The multiple nuclei theory proposes that patterns could be arranged around several centers. Generally the socioeconomic model showed a sectored pattern. The variables selected are reduced into a smaller number of constructs. The first methodology is a descriptive analysis. Heterogeneity of the population is detected if these three constructs emerge from the analysis. Social area analysis broadly classifies variables into three constructs. Two religion variables and two language variables have been selected representing the ethnic construct. and the sub-regional scale of the sectors (neighborhoods) of Vashi node. the scale was smaller. a cluster analysis was done of the cases of the data set. The concentric zone theory relates the pattern of cities to population mobility. Wedge patterns representing income groups are the outcome of the theory. A variation in the data greater than 15% on each side of the mean is considered as unequal distribution. family size and type of house under family status. the family component showed a concentric ring pattern. family status and ethnic status. the analysis allowed a more detailed interpretation. The similarity between the . The other variables selected were number of earning members. That would indicate that enclaves have not been caused by individual variables. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. family status and ethnic status. The second theory. socioeconomic. The constructs of the social area analysis have been found to correspond to the three theories. These are socioeconomic construct. Analysis of data was done at two scales. Analysis was done to map the urban social pattern of many cities across the world. Using the secondary source material as reference. The data at both scales is tabulated. and histogram drawn of the variable selected from each data set. If H0 is false. Mobility and immigration are the key variables of this theory. The variables selected under each construct were drawn out of experience of the researchers.

The principal components analysis shows that the variables are not grouping under the three constructs. The objective. The interpretation of the descriptive analysis shows that the distribution of most of the variables is not uniform. they were mapped under expected and observed conditions. . As the socioeconomic variables are expected to take a sectored pattern. All three new constructs are dominated by an ethnic variable. although the policy is noble in its aims and aspiration. Distribution was originally controlled through allotment of government-built houses based only on purchasing power (and indirectly socioeconomic status). In Vashi only 64% of the houses were built and allotted by the government. The final stage was mapping of the clusters. However. The research brings to the fore many questions than answers. The pattern could. • Was this an experiment in enhancing quality of life or is it a method for the government to exert social control? • The concept of the melting pot has to be re-examined. How important is it to promote integration when self-sorting has been the natural process? • Can the Modernist synthesis seeking homogeneity in heterogeneity be used as a template for the Indian culture? • This leads to the question: is the objective valid? Does it have to be redefined or is the implementation strategy to be modified? At this stage it appears that a detailed analysis of the policy instrument and policy goals must be undertaken. 2. The policy has not facilitated the distribution of the population based on socioeconomic criteria. physical design and the institutional framework need to be examined closely to realize their full impact and to understand the results in their context. In conclusion. thereby. The hypothesis was proved false. it has not succeeded at this stage. This can be attributed to two reasons: 1. graphically representing the analysis. The center is an ethnic enclave surrounded by socioeconomic variables. however. The urban social pattern is best explained as one of multiple nuclei. allotment procedure. Even in the houses built by the government resale has taken place.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 76 nodes and sectors is determined from this. family status variables concentric zones and the ethnicity variables a multiple nuclei arrangement. Control is maximum when the government owns all the houses. The extreme value range in the mapping is important because it represents the dissimilarity in the distribution. The interpretation of the analysis also involves comparing the descriptive analysis. The overall pattern of Navi Mumbai is one of multiple nuclei. The distribution of these variables shows segregation. This indicates that the urban social pattern is strongly influenced by ethnicity. This is especially true of the ethnic variables. A moral analysis of segregation has to be done in the context of the Indian culture. be explained using the theories of urban social patterns. None of the variables selected display a uniform distribution. The spatial distribution of households is still characterized by traditional Indian values of ethnic segregation. the socioeconomic variables also show separation. and clustering to the urban social patterns detailed in the secondary source material. Redistribution shows that people have aligned themselves based on ethnic variables.
