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.

2 Significance of Research A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between their constituent elements at a certain period of time. It is a synthesis of the spatial relationships of various elements. Thus. An interpretation of the emerging social pattern reveals something of the social character of the city. The urban form of a city is primarily the result of the characteristics of its physical and social design as well as socioeconomic and political forces. and political events may influence the physical design and pattern of a city. These include the ethnic composition of the city. land use pattern and ethnic classifications will be used as key variables to study the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. This research aspires to contribute to basic research in social geography. this paper will augment existing knowledge about social configurations of planned urban development in Asian regions. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. and their social pattern is characterized by residential segregation based on ethnic. religious and linguistic classes. street patterns. exist in the urban social pattern of planned towns in India.

The total land of Navi Mumbai was divided into thirteen townships. The higher income groups would pay a surcharge for housing. The cuadra had a detailed zoning plan with single-use zoning on all lots. V4 roads were designed for shopping and commercial activity. At the same time. The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. No fast traffic was allowed in the sectors. In Navi Mumbai. Many of the sectors were residential in character. In India the square was used as the basic unit in the layout of traditional cities. 2. each family could own only developed land. A sector centrally located within each node took on commercial activities. it was proposed to use cross subsidies. 1973) The table shows the ability of each income group to contribute towards owned accommodation. Otherwise. The average cost of construction was Rs.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 9 (CIDCO.

As the residential classification was based on the caste.000 people. the main philosophical design principles of Navi Mumbai are based on Gandhian ideology (Parab. 1991). Here in Navi Mumbai the idea of a large “urban village” has been nurtured. amenities and utilities with segregation of vehicular and pedestrian traffic (Banerjee. This is the vision that is the traditional Indian design inspiration for Navi Mumbai. 1991). In India. So each sector had mixed use. Each node is self-contained for 100. 1973). 1984).

This was a model layout for an area with specifications for residences. 1973). 1969). The task of designing and detailing the physical design was carried out by CIDCO. All houses in a neighborhood were occupied by a particular caste. Parab. In the case of Navi Mumbai. a true Gandhian. Each node is divided into neighborhoods (or sectors). Gandhi would have urged: If nature chooses not to accommodate us. larger amenities by contiguous neighborhoods. Commercial and residential uses were adjacent to each other or one above the other. This is significantly different from the single-use planning of Modernism. nodes share some common facilities such as water reservoirs and transport facilities.C. 1997). was the Chief Planner of CIDCO for 20 years (1970-90) (Engel.

Holding ponds would be used for pisciculture and recreation. 1995). Politicians use the creation of jobs and better living environments as a common strategy for getting votes. The plan called for the construction of holding ponds to retain excess monsoon run-off. For industrial growth large finances were required. The primary concerns were related . As financial and economic considerations depended on the government in office. which ensured their re-election. Private industries would not invest in this particular region unless they were assured of workers and so on. The node should be large enough to provide schools. which would be used in the dry seasons. 1973. The design concept of Navi Mumbai was very idealistic. flowing from the Western Ghats mountain ranges would irrigate these trees. The Development Plan of Navi Mumbai is an example of the new consciousness for sustainable Kharghar Nerul settlements (CIDCO. One of the ideas of putting the environmental city into Dronagiri practice was the creation of woodland corridors (Parab. For example. which were closely linked. would be strongly supported. a migration of population would not occur.

The Constitution of India also spells out the need for the government machinery to facilitate social. The residents could design and implement their construction in any way they chose (swatantrya). walk-up apartments of three to four floors would be designed. The planners of Navi Mumbai thought this was a fortuitous occasion to provide social justice to the millions of migrants and pavement dwellers of Bombay (CIDCO. In planned towns and cities this should be avoided to a great extent by allocating housing in neighborhoods to members of different communities.

Health planning was undertaken as public health projects. The nodes (townships) were designed to provide one primary school per 5000 population. planners cited the segregation of Bombay as an example. Other private institutions would be encouraged also. It is expected that this accommodation of residents from various social and income groups within the same physical area will not only make for a healthier environment. 1973: 17): "CIDCO is anxious that the new city develop its own identity as quickly as possible. handicapped children. This led to the development of ethnic enclaves. 1973). The Development Plan says (CIDCO. shopping. medical care.

Mobile health care units would operate from this community health center. The Governor of Bombay also encouraged this development because it reinforced the traditional panchayati (selfgovernment) system of administration by which the council of elders settled religious. This further contributed to the creation of ethnic enclaves within the settlement. merchants from neighboring districts migrated into Bombay and constructed homes inside and outside the Fort walls. exploited women and leprosyaffected persons would be developed in Navi Mumbai to accommodate the growing population (CIDCO.

The 74th Amendment of the Constitution of India (the 1992 Amendment Act on Municipalities) spells out the devolution of power to the local bodies and democratization of development planning. 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.

housing requirements. Designing. recreation and commercial needs. lower income group. the city is no longer a plan on paper. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. . Hence. and improvements made in the next phase of design. the development process has been slow. Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning.6 Land Use of Navi Mumbai Source: CIDCO. and housing occupancy rates are high. Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970. 1995. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. the extension of the railway lines. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 18 NEW BOMBAY BOMBAY Arabian Sea Residential Woodlands Industrial Port Institutional Trucking Wholesale Fishing Wetlands Figure 2. since 1990 there has been accelerated growth due to the commissioning of Nhava-Sheva port. middle-income group and high-income groups.

Problems of design and development were identified. CIDCO provides serviced sites for both government and private ownership.

Very little analysis has been done on the outcome of CIDCO's social agenda to ensure diffusion of ethnic groups and the urban social pattern that emerged. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting. Navi Mumbai is a modern. The research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. .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. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai.

It is also a cultural manifestation.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis.the urban pattern.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. people adapt to the physical environment around them. However. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. but four-dimensional. The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. 1991). Simultaneously.

Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. income is one of the most important determinants. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. language and housing character. (New Bombay). principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. and those of Mahatma Gandhi. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. 1990). These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. 3.2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. religion. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. India. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . economic and physical environments. 1968). Thus. The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. If the residents build the buildings themselves. 1973). A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. 1990). The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. . technology. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology.

Thus. human beings. Traditional settlements were shaped by (Lozano. 1990). In most studies this unit is the neighborhood which displays both physical and social aspects of the whole urban development. 1971). Urban spatial patterns occur because of the repetitive spatial distribution of these elements. Since the characteristics are universal (within the frame of study) they may be studied by a spatial representative sector. 3. 1990).3 Factors Influencing Urban Form Many factors influence the form of cities. linguistics and ethnic background also influence urban patterns. Time and place may provide them with different characteristics making each city unique and dynamic. These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern. every city has certain elements. The physical form is a variable of the social and built pattern of the city. 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. it is necessary to determine existing land use as a pre-condition to urban growth and form. Thus urban social patterns are complex manifestations of underlying cultural values intermingled with global economic forces (McGee.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 21 Demographics. Traditional cities have used physical forms to interpret cultural and religious beliefs (Lozano. A city replaces existing land use. Doxiadis defines five elements in the study of human settlements. They are the units of analysis of the morphological study (Knox. The change of land use from rural to urban depends on the existing land use. The rural land may also have been . Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space. society. Some farmers may sell their land more easily than others may. Although details may not be identical. For example. which may be universal or local. They are nature. The patterns have similarities. and the ownership. In the study of Navi Mumbai.a fort or a religious building. The built form is influenced by factors as (Alexander. “The typical sector represents the formal characteristics found throughout the area and thus acquires some universality” (Lozano. a hill top site was the utilitarian response to any important building . This representative sector is defined as the smallest area that exhibits the characteristics of the urban settlement. 1995). and natural and manmade obstacles. buildings and infrastructure. 1990): i the way in which nature and man-made features satisfy needs for protection and defense i the way in which physical and economic landscape allows for communication with other regions i the way in which the topography of a site suggests the construction of a human settlement i the way in which climate leads to building solutions These factors influence the cultural and spiritual form of the cities as well. the node (township) and the sector (neighborhood) will be used as the study areas using aggregated household survey data.

Planning controls influence development to a great extent.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. 1987. However. craftsmen and merchants were born. 3. The external . However. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. 1990). The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. Soon. Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill. A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. Domestication of animals and cultivation of land created villages. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. race and religion (Vance. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. 1983). The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Kosambi. These factors are (Alexander.4 The Evolution of the Urban Form of Indian Cities The traditional theory of urban origin is generally attributed to Childe (Herbert. For thousands of years. 3. 1979). 1990). The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. Priests. 1986): i ethnic composition of the city i migration i religion i economic considerations i race i political and historical events The housing market also influences the social pattern of the city. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. they supported a range of activities. 1995). Instead. Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. 1992a). While some processes are culture-specific. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. commercial buildings. surplus food production was achieved. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. Housing. often because of a city wall. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. and Thomas. The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. Owner-occupier. others are global in scope. Various economic. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities.

The differences may also be placed in a horizontal system (example: language. territory. Hierarchy allows elements of the whole to be ranked with relation to each other (example: income and prestige). The population may be stratified based on income. class.5. 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. 3. Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. The real world. Repulsion between castes forced isolation and the creation of distinct residential enclaves (Bougle. 3. thighs and feet of the Creator. 1992a). 1992b). Stratification implies a differentiation based on a set of criteria. religion or occupation (Bougle. unfortunately. Vaishya and Sudra are said to have come from the mouth. 1992b:14). Various combinations of the hierarchy have come about due to regional differentiation in certain attributes of social living. However. sometimes reinforced by common work roles. language. differentiates itself into only hierarchical status containing inequality (Gupta. 1992). vertical and horizontal systems of stratification exist.

There are many religions in India. degree of control over the language and relationship between the languages affect their social communication. 1970). After the decline of the Mughal Empire and the loss of political power to the British. Marathi. The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion. 1997). Hindus and Muslims drifted apart in the issue of independence from British rule. the Muslims were in power over most of India. A Hindu revival period in the late nineteenth century to arouse enthusiasm for political action made the Muslims more insecure.5.Jainism and Sikhism.3 Religion Religion and language have provided the motive power for nationalism in India (Brass. . The characteristics of the population regarding bilinguals. prestige and income to form a socioeconomic status. 1974). A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. However. 1974). absorbing other religious doctrines and never proselytizing. 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.

Anger and frustration broke out as violence as Hindus moved from Pakistan into India and Muslims moved from India to Pakistan (Hodson. The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service. it may be better to create a composite index of education. 1985). Jainism and Sikhism stemmed off from Hinduism and are very similar to Hinduism. Tamil. Telugu. Bengali. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. 1985). During the Mughal rule (16th to 18th century). 3. In 1906 they formed the All-India Muslim League. The major languages of India are Hindi.5. Urdu and Punjabi. 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. Islam was a religion that came to India from outside and is culturally very different from Hinduism. India is the birthplace of two major religions –Hinduism and Buddhism – and two minor religions . The linguistic distribution is not only diverse but also very complex (Das Gupta. 1985:11). While the Congress party represented the majority of the Indian population. Gujarati.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century. 1977). Muslims became apprehensive of Hindu domination. The wake of Independence brought with it violence and terror in the Indo-Pakistan borders in Punjab and Bengal. At this time they felt the need for a political party of their own.

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

C to 12th century AD). 3. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. both from within and without the country.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. 1969). Prime commercial and residential land was located near the temple. The final shape of the town Figure 3. 1974). The temple also influences the siting of other land uses. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. governed the alignment of roads. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. class. which contributes many elements to the urban form.

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

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

empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. 1990). 1978). It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. 1978). For example. 1939). Hence. 1979). 1992 . 1992). S (Hoyt. This is not a generalized model. However. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge.3).3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. 1979). and Golledge. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. Neighborhoods for each income group are common. This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3.7. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill. 1979).7. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use. 1978).3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. 1939 3. 1979).4). 3. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry. The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work.

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

Public open spaces are generally found only . 1971). Cities in the Third World are frequently dual environments. but socially with more complex relations to one another. 1995) shows that the four important factors in the social pattern are underclass. youth/migrants and black poverty. does not always emerge as an independent component (Scargill. however.

It has been found that Indian cities defy social modeling. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. In the cities where new professions were created. 1975).8). Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. For example.3 Indian Cities In cities of India. has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara. yet complementary. the poorer the household (Cornelius. 1977). caste. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function.

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

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

Social structure in India is a result of cultural.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes. The variables are tabulated below: Table 4. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. If H0 is false.

The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. the units of analysis are not identical. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. The only data source that provides this information. 4. the sector is the unit of analysis.

At the regional scale the data is tabulated. These are techniques in multivariate analysis.161 Sanpada 2. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. The census data is not 100% reliable. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. 4.056 New Panvel 9. For a social area analysis. data covering a large area is required.109 Kalamboli 9. 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 third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated.007 Airoli 13. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. This is a detailed stage of analysis. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation.

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

This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. This method joins similar observations. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other.5.0. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. 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. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. namely Vashi. and so produces better dendrograms. 4. 4. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. then connects the next most similar observations to these.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. Distance coefficients are linked at low values.0 to -1. .Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. principal components analysis and cluster analysis. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai.

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.

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 pattern is strongly influenced by factors as year of occupation of the house and reasons for moving.4 Potential Utility of the Research This research is a starting point for further studies in spatial patterns in Navi Mumbai. 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. the policy has not been successful. • • putting forth a new theory to generalize social pattern in planned cities in India. The principal components analysis shows that the cause of this spatial pattern is ethnicity. The aggregation of household data at the sector scale has limited this research from drawing out the finer details of the spatial pattern. . as the pattern is not uniform. 6. As Navi Mumbai has been constructed over the last 25 years. examining the policy instruments and policy goals. However. In conclusion. 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. This is the multiple nuclei pattern of an ethnically driven spatial organization.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 6: Interpretation and Discussion 73 not uniform or heterogeneous. a pattern did emerge at this present stage. The policy of the government to promote social heterogeneity influenced the type of residential construction in Navi Mumbai.

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

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

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