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 geographical area of Bombay is an island. Bombay had its beginnings in a series of fishing villages until it was taken over by the Portuguese in the 16th century. especially to the middle and lower class of people. By the 1780s. The East India Company encouraged Indian and East India Company merchants to settle in Bombay. 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. 1965 Bombay’s high concentration of docks.

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.) Land-use Zone 1979 1985 1986 1991 Residential 101.15 133.99 127.08 129.87 Commercial 6.51 6.51 6.51 5.75 Industrial 43.21 43.14 43.14 43.14 Port 12.00 22.7 22.7 22.7 Wholesale market 6.08 4.54 4.54 4.6 Woodlands / Park 90.26 61.24 68.15 69.35 Institutional .76 1.09 1.09 1.09 Fishing and allied 6.14 3.44 3.44 3.44 Transportation 30.86 30.35 30.35 29.73 No development 46.73 36.70 36.70 34.03 Total 343.70 343.70 343.70 343.70

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.

Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. the extension of the railway lines. Houses have been constructed for different sectors of society economically weaker section. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. the development process has been slow. and housing occupancy rates are high.6 Land Use of Navi Mumbai Source: CIDCO. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. Periodic socioeconomic and household surveys were used to determine the status of constructed environment. the city is no longer a plan on paper. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen. Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970.

The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. 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. Navi Mumbai is a modern. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. 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.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 research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting.
The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses.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. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. 1990). Education. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox.

The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. people adapt to the physical environment around them. occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. economic and physical environments. religion. It is also a cultural manifestation. Simultaneously. Land ownership patterns.

Whatever the mode of construction. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. 3. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. 1991). 1968). because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. (New Bombay). communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. transportation.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. income is one of the most important determinants. and those of Mahatma Gandhi. However. If the residents build the buildings themselves. 1987). Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. then they reflect their lifestyles. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. Thus. 1973). Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. language and housing character. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. 1995). Where market forces work. 1990). urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. Interaction of these elements form a pattern .
Traditional cities have used physical forms to interpret cultural and religious beliefs (Lozano. 1990). a hill top site was the utilitarian response to any important building . the node (township) and the sector (neighborhood) will be used as the study areas using aggregated household survey data. society. They are the units of analysis of the morphological study (Knox. 1990). 1971). Thus urban social patterns are complex manifestations of underlying cultural values intermingled with global economic forces (McGee. The rural land may also have been . The physical form is a variable of the social and built pattern of the city. The change of land use from rural to urban depends on the existing land use. In the study of Navi Mumbai. This representative sector is defined as the smallest area that exhibits the characteristics of the urban settlement. A city replaces existing land use. These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern. 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. Thus. “The typical sector represents the formal characteristics found throughout the area and thus acquires some universality” (Lozano. buildings and infrastructure. Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space. Although details may not be identical. and natural and manmade obstacles. The built form is influenced by factors as (Alexander. Urban spatial patterns occur because of the repetitive spatial distribution of these elements. it is necessary to determine existing land use as a pre-condition to urban growth and form.3 Factors Influencing Urban Form Many factors influence the form of cities. Some farmers may sell their land more easily than others may. Time and place may provide them with different characteristics making each city unique and dynamic. which may be universal or local. human beings. Doxiadis defines five elements in the study of human settlements. Traditional settlements were shaped by (Lozano. 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. 1995). 3. The patterns have similarities. In most studies this unit is the neighborhood which displays both physical and social aspects of the whole urban development. every city has certain elements.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 21 Demographics.a fort or a religious building. and the ownership. linguistics and ethnic background also influence urban patterns. They are nature. For example. Since the characteristics are universal (within the frame of study) they may be studied by a spatial representative sector.

Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. Kosambi. While some processes are culture-specific. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. 1995). Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. race and religion (Vance. cities were very simple although they rarely served single purposes. 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. Priests. A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. 3. However. they supported a range of activities. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. 1992a). A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. 1990). The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. 1990). The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. These factors are (Alexander.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. 1987. Instead. However. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. Domestication of animals and cultivation of land created villages. surplus food production was achieved. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. Various economic. often because of a city wall. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. within. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. Planning controls influence development to a great extent. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs.

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. The Indian theory of social stratification depends on caste. these single criterion hierarchies can be misleading as they depend on cutoff points related to individual analysis (Gupta. 1992).2 Class "Class refers to a system of stratification which is economic in character" (Gupta. Along with the caste exist occupational stratification. religious and ethnic diversity of the country (Gupta. Certain customs lower or raise the status of the caste. Ethnic characteristics refer to language. 1992). Hierarchy allows elements of the whole to be ranked with relation to each other (example: income and prestige).5. 1992b). 1992). 1992). territory. The criteria for the differentiation can normally be translated into money or wealth. linguistic stratification and religious stratification. religion). language. The spirit of the caste system is determined by the attitudes of each caste to the other. However. Vegetarian castes occupy higher positions. However. a hierarchy from Brahman to Sudra has been interpreted (Bougle. 1992b). Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. The dominant caste legend is the Purushasukta legend whereby the Brahman. religion and language are discussed below. 1992a). 3. linguistic. However. Thus. thighs and feet of the Creator. this popular caste hierarchy is not clear throughout the Indian subcontinent (Srinivas. The social stratification is very deep and varied. the forms of social stratification are many. marriage and death ceremonies distinguish one caste from another. 1992). The characteristics caste. differentiates itself into only hierarchical status containing inequality (Gupta.
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. The wake of Independence brought with it violence and terror in the Indo-Pakistan borders in Punjab and Bengal. Islam was a religion that came to India from outside and is culturally very different from Hinduism. 1970). While the Congress party represented the majority of the Indian population.5. At this time they felt the need for a political party of their own. . Muslims became apprehensive of Hindu domination.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century. 1974).

The linguistic distribution is not only diverse but also very complex (Das Gupta. Urdu and Punjabi. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. “In most folk-memory the Muslims of India had been ruler. absorbing other religious doctrines and never proselytizing. which culminated in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. 1977). The major languages of India are Hindi. 1985). Buddhism. Tamil. A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. 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. 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. the Muslim League represented only the Muslim population (Brass.

The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service. Telugu. Malayalam.

India is the birthplace of two major religions –Hinduism and Buddhism – and two minor religions . Hindi was chosen because it was the language spoken by the largest percent of the population while was a result of the British legacy. 3. 1974).
1970). The Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India declared the fourteen major languages listed as national language (Gumprez. a state language with an unique status (Das Gupta.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 25 However. This rationale of composite nationalism influenced policies related to religion and language (Das Gupta. Pakistan officially declared itself as a Muslim state. Language conflicts have also occurred in India. a demand for a national language also arose. there also been conflict between other regional languages. they believed. and vice versa. a majority of the leaders preferred a composite nationalism. all castes looked up to the farmer caste because they were important landowners and were wealthy (Srinivas. In many places. When the ethnic groups occupy distinct neighborhoods. as it was difficult to isolate only one family. In some villages. Small Muslim enclaves within a majority Hindu neighborhood were targeted. Although a minority of Hindu leaders in India felt that India should be declared as a Hindu state. a synonym for official language and like state religion. Agitation and violence broke out in many non-Hindi states over this issue. The Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was broken down by Hindu fundamentalists. 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). Compromise was . This confusion in terminology is the basis for most language-related problems in Independent India.5. Hindu-Muslim riots broke out even in Bombay which has normally been a very peaceful city. 1970). the Brahman priests had more power because it was believed that they were the representatives of the Creator on earth. 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. In a multilingual society there may be a plurality of national languages. The better control the Tamil people had over English. This was not seen in more heterogeneous neighborhoods. 1988). confusion has always existed about the status of Hindi as official or national language. Repercussions were felt all over the country. The separatism movements seen all over India are all based on ethnicity and inter-caste rivalry (Bose. 3. The South Indian state of Tamil Nadu was most vocal in the Anti-Hindi agitation. Certain castes are dominant in a society. 1971). ethnic conflicts are easily targeted towards these select neighborhoods. 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. 1992a). 1989). However. 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. The partition of United India into India and Pakistan came with many problems. Traditionally these castes had either wealth or power. The inequality and economic differentiation cause conflict between the castes and classes. Writers in Hindi commonly refer to Hindi as Rashtrabasha (state language) which may signify language used by the state. many political leaders advocated for the use of Hindi as a national and official language. In the early 1950s. 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. Although a majority of the rivalry has been for and against Hindi.
The multi-dimensional society was soon complicated by the emergence of other religions. The square was used in the creation of the vastupurusha mandala. However. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. If it could not be a perfect square. 1974).1). class.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. religion and language is the issue of group identity which is the cause of most ethnic conflicts. The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B. Despite the Act. governed the alignment of roads. Buddhism. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. 1969). This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. The streets ran from north to south and from east to west. . cyclical and swastika (Figure 3. Related to castes. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. orientation of buildings and arrangement of internal rooms based on astrological and religious criteria (Volwahsen. The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life. In the initial stages it was in the form of caste differentiation as prescribed by the Hindu/ Vedic texts. Jainism. In planning the town a vastupurusha mandala which was most auspicious.

Stratification of the society had to accommodate these religious factors. The temple also influences the siting of other land uses. Prime commercial and residential land was located near the temple. the creator. 3. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. and which had as many padas as there were to be residential sectors was selected. Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. a perfect rectangle was accepted. Social assimilation and mobilization are a part of any evolving civilization. padas. which contributes many elements to the urban form. The final shape of the town Figure 3.

jali (carved screens) and projecting balconies (Kopardekara. 1980). many researchers have pointed to the lack of penetration of urban values into the countryside. 1980). Residential segregation is no longer based only on occupation and caste.the cantonment . the Hindu tradition continued. The residential character throughout this period was segregated. The urban segregation was based on function and occupation premises. “In the case of India. this has led to segregation and creation of enclaves within the city. Residential areas associated with the commercial area were contiguous or within the commercial area (Hall. pottery. These are the theories which pertain to the built and social form of the city. 3. 1989). especially seen in the port cities associated with the East India Company (Mills. Diversification of professions due to industrialization in the post-independence era has resulted in further complexity (Becker.). 1992). and wood formed niches in the urban pattern. The characteristics of the social and built form of the city contribute to its pattern. Vaishyas in the southern part and Sudras in the western district. metalware. D. Kshatriyas in the eastern and southeastern part. the Brahmans worked and lived in the northern district. and the apparent timelessness and permanence of village life” (Hall. counting houses.

Generally. military establishments . 1980). and insufficient infrastructure in cities has led to the creation of slums and shantytowns (Misra. At the time of independence in 1947.) was the third phase of historical urban form. The colonial influence (17th to early 20th century A. Williamson and Mills. During this time. There was further subdivisions within each district depending on the sub-caste. Many researchers have tried to fit Indian urban growth into a theoretical model. D. The Islamic elements included the mosque and domestic architecture which emphasized the purdah through enclosed courtyards. but also on socioeconomic factors (Ramachandran. As the built form depends on the social characteristics portrayed by its residents. In India where occupation and caste are synonyms. 1978). jewelry. and Hindu elements of this period are not distinct from earlier ones. 1988). A generalization of these patterns has been made. The Brahmans and Kshatriyas lived in the parts of the town which were climatically more comfortable sheltered from the hot sun. It has been shown that rural values have penetrated the urban philosophy due to large-scale migration. Characteristics from medieval times are Islamic in nature (14th to 17th centuries A. and the south-west monsoon. The three leading theories described below are based on the built form of the city. Large migration of people from the rural area. the same theories are being used to describe the social patterns as well. 1986). The morphological components include buildings used for trade warehouses.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 27 The residential districts were divided among the four castes. Areas for selling of specific goods – cloth. This led to the development of commercial centers and zoning based on Western market principles.7 Theories of Urban Social Patterns . India inherited a complex urban fabric.

The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. political and social activities. The public transport system had also improved significantly and allowed the middle-class to .7. 1979). The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. 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. most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded. which had factories and slums. 1979). Thus. This also forced an outward expansion. High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas. 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.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. 3. Figure 3. In the early 1920s. 1929). accessibility to a single-centered city. 1990). and especially in Chicago. The movement was towards the periphery. With affluence. 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. 1929).2). It was partly based on Low income economic factors. 1929). some static. It also had older residential districts. Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city. free Middle income market. The next zone had lower income housing. 1992). and studying how the city grew (Scargill. Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development. Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn. This was surrounded by a transition zone. The CBD core had all major commercial. These immigrants first found cheap housing in the inner city.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. which were being taken over by the expanding CBD. 1992). they moved to better housing districts (Burgess.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess.
The model also accounts for growth along transport routes.7. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. 1978). This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. This is not a generalized model. 1939).3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt. For example.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. S (Hoyt. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. Hence. 1979). 1992 . 1990). However. Neighborhoods for each income group are common. 3. 1979). 1978). This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. and Golledge. 1992). commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3.3). 1939 3. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill.4). Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work. 1978). 1979).7. Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. 1979).
Hence. and social change was expected to be reflected in studies which were repeated over a time period (Herbert and Thomas. social status and retirement (Scargill. 1990). 1971). The use of these three indices for analysis is a social area analysis. but also an expression of socioeconomic and cultural values of the people. community and social and civic responsibilities such as aesthetics. A neighborhood unit is not the only model or universally appropriate unit of analysis.1 Western Cities Many studies of the social and physical urban pattern have been done.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. Social rank used the variables. however. In the built environment this corresponds to ethnic neighborhoods (Timms. This is . but on cultural ones. Critics say that neighborhood unit strongly emphasizes physical environment. It is assumed that any planned city consists of neighborhood units. the neighborhood unit is used as the unit of analysis in the study of human settlements (Herbert and Thomas. Individualistic frameworks. 1990). 1971). ethnic status used religion and social groups. value of home. It is not only a physical design concept. safety. housing conditions and material possessions. The non-uniform pattern is consistent over many cities because similar households exert similar housing choices. family status and ethnic status. The values are also related to family. 1979). education. are suitable modifications of the concept (Timms. neighborliness. The broad generalization of the social rank produced a sector model.marriage. Analysis of individual cities shows that the pattern is not uniform and is characterized by residential segregation. In the analysis of urban social patterns.8. 1992). which analyze the physical environment under consideration. they move outwards. 1979). every city has some constraints. 3. Family status in American cities shows a concentric distribution. It serves as the building block to construct the whole town. 1971). parenthood.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 30 3. The main assumption here was that social rank is related to transportation links which influence residential location in a sectoral manner (Scargill. The concept of neighborhood units became popular since the1920s in planned settlements (Perry. family status used the variables related to demographics and type of house. The data source was census tracts. 1929). The outward mobility is related to different stages of life . This concept. For example. It is only the most convenient one. housing choices may not be made on economic basis. However. 1990). The city was viewed as a part of society. employment. This type of urbanization is also related to the housing market described by Hoyt (1939). three indices were used. As a family’s needs for space increase. security and identity. A neighborhood is the basis for formally organized residential space. it does not address the needs of a social environment. Ethnicity causes the social phenomena of segregation. These were social rank. has been under strong criticism (Hartshorn. ethnic status and family status (Timms. In Western cities the reasons for non-uniformity have been identified as socioeconomic status.

Traditional places are typically more dense with narrow streets and housing spaces around central courtyards. but socially with more complex relations to one another. 1992.

A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city. 1986). A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder. Western ideas of suburbanization and formed their Source: Drakakis-Smith own neighborhoods (Lowder. traditional commercial areas and modern commercial areas. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi. but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges. ethnicity and literacy. 1986).

Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities. An analysis of Calcutta showed a pattern based on land use.7). 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. The social Figure 3. 1986 Literacy and ethnic patterns emerged in a sectoral form. and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. Thus. which is adjacent to. The migrants and poor did not live in the core of the city. 1986). The nuclei are original village. are very complex and have evolved over a very long time. social and economic variables may not be the only factors. substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city. The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3.7 Asian Ports pattern showed concentric zones for land use. 1980. A study of Colombo (Herbert and de Silva. The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. 1986). The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza. The model shows that the indigenous elite were closely associated with the commercial area. 1975). along riverbanks).
the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. 1980): i Residences have not yet come to serve the symbolic function they do in the Western world. For example. "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own .8). in rural areas. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. many large cities became crowded. 1977). The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. 1986). In the 18th and 19th centuries. Soon. in general. and especially to construct a structural model. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. climatic and aesthetic factors. languages and customs. The nature of traditional social status and the interdependence and spatial interpretation of diverse. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. In the cities where new professions were created. 3. caste.3 Indian Cities In cities of India. farming is done only by the Sudra caste. In Lima. It has been found that Indian cities defy social modeling. spatial segregation based on ethnicity.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 33 Here. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. i Symbolic functionalism is performed by religion and caste and buttressed by regional affiliations. the poorer the household (Cornelius. Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. But. 1986 residential colonies moved from the center of the city to the urban periphery which were selected for their better geographic. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function. The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3. has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara. new definitions had to be made. the farther away from the center.

A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city.
i South Indian cities had higher female employment rate. These three dimensions would form concentric zones (Figure 3. real case studies did not prove this theory.

Analysis at the level of a single city gave patterns that are more complex. castes and classes produces a more heterogeneous pattern. . religious polarity. The social patterns were also strongly influenced by the age of the city. These examples show that the urban social pattern of Indian cities is very complex due to the influence of a variety of factors.

In the American cities. Here. Stratification causes social inequality in terms of wealth. In the case of Navi Mumbai. it is appropriate to use a social area analysis to delineate the urban social pattern. These are concentric zone theory. the researcher’s knowledge of the local environment is important to contextualize the pattern more appropriately. In the design of Navi Mumbai. Three leading western theories describing the urban social pattern of cities dominate the literature on urban social patterns (Hartshorn. These characteristics stratify the society into vertical and horizontal systems. this is not evident due to the existence of multi-generational families. The reasons for migration are also varied – they may be migrating as a result of natural calamities. The urban social pattern of these cities has been generalized. Traditional Indian cities have grown over a very long period of time. The households are generally large with a range of ages. A market economy strongly influences the lifestyle of the citizens of Navi Mumbai. or in search of opportunities in the city. the components derived from social area analysis were termed as socioeconomic status. class. the sociocultural factors are related to caste. migration or ethnic group represent the ethnic factor.

In Third World cities. 1992). sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. . family status and ethnic status. The lifestyle factor in North American cities relates small nuclear families with higher education achievements and better employment opportunities. Status in Third World cities is based on family membership or socioeconomic class. In the case of India. In such a case study. The residential neighborhoods of such cities are not as well defined as they are in the American cities. an effort was made to prevent this social stratification and use residential allotments to fulfill this objective. However. The historical evolution of cities has supported this stratification. The components of the analysis of American cities are not entirely apparent in the Third World cities. religion and language. Migration may also be restricted to the men of the family.9 Conclusion The urban social pattern is the complex manifestation of the underlying cultural values of the population within a particular built environment. Social area analysis assumes that a few independent factors can explain the spatial patterning of a city. Land-use is also similar in that it is predominantly single-use zoning. These theories have been combined in a social area analysis to describe the social pattern based on a few social variables.
The theories put forth by Burgess. and housing characteristics. The social area analysis may be done statistically by a factor analysis. economic. 1985). Generally the economic model showed a sectored pattern. Although these analyses have been more effective for studying North American cities. the urbanization component showed a concentric ring pattern. Better transportation systems increase mobility and lead to a greater sorting of population (Cadwallader. family status and ethnic status. 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. However. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. and Harris and Ullman will be the theoretical framework for the conceptualization of the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. The study involves the categorization of a city based on social rank.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. urbanization index. The issue of spatial distribution of different kinds of people in Navi Mumbai is of primary interest. economic status and ethnic background produce a certain spatial pattern in the city. 1978). immigration of rural population leads to segregation based on language. and ethnicity confirmed the validity of the analysis. 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.1 Social Area Analysis Social area analysis provides a broad framework for analyzing the social patterns of a city. The general issue of social areas will be accomplished through social area analysis. 4. These factors are taken into consideration in social area analysis. Cities are complex entities that have many different functions performed by many different people. the city was analyzed as a composite made up of three layers.

This analysis classifies census tract data into three main constructs . 1971).socioeconomic status. These three factors also corresponded to the theoretical models proposed by Burgess. Social area analysis shows how family characteristics. The increase in industrialization creates an occupational status system (Timms. The basic premise of social area analysis is that a city cannot be studied in isolation from the overall society (Shevky and Bell. urbanization and segregation. It was first put forth by Shevky and Williams (1949) in a study of Los Angeles. Under these conditions. It is a . Hoyt. there was considerable criticism about the choice of variables. Earlier. 1955). These involve population. The family as a unit becomes weaker. A set of variables describing the social structure of the city can be used in the statistical analysis.

This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented.2 Hypotheses As discussed in the literature review. H0. Social area analysis based on western thinking can not be naively applied to the study of urban social patterns in India. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. mapping of social patterns in many cities across the world show that the socioeconomic status.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas. caste) dimensions (Hall. The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. 1980). If H0 is false. Social structure in India is a result of cultural. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. my null hypothesis. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory.

Finally. and compare it to other cities. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. the units of analysis are not identical. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. The only data source that provides this information. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the .056 New Panvel 9. The second is a principal components analysis. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C.

In this research.109 Kalamboli 9. 4. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. cartographic mapping. 4.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. data covering a large area is required. The census data is not 100% reliable. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27.5. although variables are related. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity. All data is standardized.378 Kopar-khairane 14. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. Table 4. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. is census data. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. For a social area analysis.
1986). 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. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. Corresponding communalities are also estimated. The . it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. and results in a simpler pattern.5. 4. The rotation normally removes the negative loadings. the matrix of component scores is computed. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation. The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. 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 second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. 1986). Generally variables with communalities less than 0. Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables. then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous. "To obtain the initial solution.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. This approach to classification is very subjective. 1978). Characteristics of the urban social pattern can be revealed by considering the relationship within groups. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated). The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix. certain restrictions are imposed.5. The elements of the eigenvectors that are used to compute the scores are called principal component loadings. In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor. It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables. Finally. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. and so on" (Kim and Mueller. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix. The first matrix is a simple data matrix. The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation. Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components. Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices. This is varimax rotation. 4. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean.
and so produces better dendrograms. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. as is the correlation coefficient. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. 4. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. Distance coefficients are linked at low values.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework.0. 4.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering.0 to -1. This method joins similar observations.5. . The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. namely Vashi. principal components analysis and cluster analysis. then connects the next most similar observations to these.
The methodological reason for selecting these eight nodes out of the total of thirteen is because data was available for only these eight nodes. only one or two representative variables from each set was selected.

Again. Each of the three components have an ethnic variable in them. The third component is the economically active age group dominated by the Hindu population. As the Marathi population is 53% of the total population. as Hindus are 83% of the population. The cluster analysis shows a segregation in Cluster 1 caused by high number of earners with a high percentage of households speaking Marathi and a low percentage of .3 Discussion The principal components analysis produced three equally important components with eigenvalues in the range of 2. This can be translated into a middle-class population. It appears that there is a segregation based on the ethnic component.
6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. and a strong ethnic component is seen. 5. Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi. PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together.

In summary. The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. and distinctly driven by an ethnic component at the sub-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.

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

As Navi Mumbai has been constructed over the last 25 years. 6. The mapping of individual variables and factor scores verifies that within a fairly homogeneous group of sectors there exists a dissimilar sector. This is the multiple nuclei pattern of an ethnically driven spatial organization. the pattern is strongly influenced by factors as year of occupation of the house and reasons for moving. The clustering indicates that some sectors are dissimilar from others. examining the policy instruments and policy goals. .4 Potential Utility of the Research This research is a starting point for further studies in spatial patterns in Navi Mumbai. The principal components analysis shows that the cause of this spatial pattern is ethnicity. In conclusion. The policy of the government to promote social heterogeneity influenced the type of residential construction in Navi Mumbai. the policy has not been successful. The aggregation of household data at the sector scale has limited this research from drawing out the finer details of the spatial pattern. Future research could involve: • • Delineating the pattern at intervals of time to study the change in pattern. a pattern did emerge at this present stage.
The culture of this race of people is very different from the Hindus. Every effort was taken by the government to make Navi Mumbai an independent city and not a suburb or satellite city to Bombay. The draft development plan of Navi Mumbai had very strong functional and social objectives. Areas dominated by Muslims are common in most cities in India. The Muslims came to India as invaders. 1991). India. Three leading theories put forth were concentric zone theory. The government had a very practical interest in avoiding ethnic confrontation. Religious tensions have always existed in India. raise the standard of living and reduce social inequalities. 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. It was hoped that a majority of the residential construction could be achieved though a policy of swavalambhan (self-reliance) and swatantrya (mutual selfhelp). The thesis addresses this social objective. Planning policies in Navi Mumbai were strongly influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. The important objectives of Navi Mumbai were: attract some of the immigrant population. 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. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. The review of secondary source material shows that urban social patterns have been studied across the world. Bombay is the financial and economic capital of India.Chapter 7: Conclusion The purpose of this thesis is to delineate the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. strongly influenced by ethnic variables. support an aggressive industrialization policy. The Hindu laws and treatises specified residential locations for different castes. Partition and the first years of independence were. religion and language. The other feature that is unique to India is the existence of many languages. Navi Mumbai is separated from the metropolis of Bombay only by the Thane Creek. However. These theories explain the urban social pattern . This was the first cause of separation in residential neighborhoods. and formulated a policy to support it. The religious divide was used in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. Ethnic enclaves have always characterized traditional settlements in India. Traditional Indian cities have always had a strong ethnic component in their urban social pattern. The government also decided to take up most of the initial building construction. Housing would be allotted according to the preference of size of dwelling provided by applicants. Political and administrative boundaries in independent India were decided on linguistic lines. Households would normally place this preference based on how much they can pay. It was also influenced by the concept of the city as a melting pot (Engel. and provide an infrastructure which would promote ethnic heterogeneity. caste. thus. The segregation is attributed to the ethnic variables. Navi Mumbai is still dependent on Bombay for much of its activity. The government hoped that this would distribute people based on socioeconomics and break barriers based on religion and language. and the government had a specific social and political agenda.
The other variables selected were number of earning members. the analysis allowed a more detailed interpretation. Using the secondary source material as reference. The constructs of the social area analysis have been found to correspond to the three theories. In Navi Mumbai. The methodologies were techniques of multivariate analysis. Generally the socioeconomic model showed a sectored pattern. Heterogeneity of the population is detected if these three constructs emerge from the 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 similarity between the . Twenty-three sectors of Vashi were then analyzed. The software package SPSS was used to do the analysis. family status and ethnic status. Analysis of data was done at two scales. grouping of variables is expected to be under the three constructs. The second theory. The multiple nuclei theory proposes that patterns could be arranged around several centers. The second methodology is principal components analysis (PCA). then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. If H0 is false. Wedge patterns representing income groups are the outcome of the theory. family size and type of house under family status. A variation in the data greater than 15% on each side of the mean is considered as unequal distribution. That would indicate that enclaves have not been caused by individual variables. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. the family component showed a concentric ring pattern. and the sub-regional scale of the sectors (neighborhoods) of Vashi node. These scales were the regional scale of the nodes (townships). This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. Next. Two religion variables and two language variables have been selected representing the ethnic construct. is an analysis primarily of economic variables. The PCA reduces the dimensionality of the data into a more interpretable form. Mobility and immigration are the key variables of this theory. and demographics. The data at both scales is tabulated. The variables selected are reduced into a smaller number of constructs. special emphasis has to be given to the ethnic components. The methodology used was that of social area analysis. At the regional scale the analysis was done between the eight nodes to study their similarity. The concentric zone theory relates the pattern of cities to population mobility. a cluster analysis was done of the cases of the data set. and histogram drawn of the variable selected from each data set. sector theory. The variables selected under each construct were drawn out of experience of the researchers. Since. the scale was smaller. Social area analysis broadly classifies variables into three constructs. These are socioeconomic construct. income and education under the socioeconomic construct. Four methods were used to analyze the data. In the case of Navi Mumbai this is important because of the policy to prevent segregation based on ethnic variables. Analysis was done to map the urban social pattern of many cities across the world.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 75 and its change over time. family status and ethnic status. Succession and invasion based on social and economic status is the basic assumption of this theory. socioeconomic. The first methodology is a descriptive analysis.
The hypothesis was proved false. 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. 2. however. This indicates that the urban social pattern is strongly influenced by ethnicity. However. In conclusion. The final stage was mapping of the clusters. The policy has not facilitated the distribution of the population based on socioeconomic criteria. be explained using the theories of urban social patterns. None of the variables selected display a uniform distribution. physical design and the institutional framework need to be examined closely to realize their full impact and to understand the results in their context. and clustering to the urban social patterns detailed in the secondary source material. The principal components analysis shows that the variables are not grouping under the three constructs. This can be attributed to two reasons: 1. The overall pattern of Navi Mumbai is one of multiple nuclei. The extreme value range in the mapping is important because it represents the dissimilarity in the distribution. In Vashi only 64% of the houses were built and allotted by the government. Even in the houses built by the government resale has taken place. . The research brings to the fore many questions than answers. The interpretation of the descriptive analysis shows that the distribution of most of the variables is not uniform. graphically representing the analysis. • 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. Redistribution shows that people have aligned themselves based on ethnic variables. The center is an ethnic enclave surrounded by socioeconomic variables.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 76 nodes and sectors is determined from this. The pattern could. family status variables concentric zones and the ethnicity variables a multiple nuclei arrangement. This is especially true of the ethnic variables. The interpretation of the analysis also involves comparing the descriptive analysis. it has not succeeded at this stage. they were mapped under expected and observed conditions. Distribution was originally controlled through allotment of government-built houses based only on purchasing power (and indirectly socioeconomic status). The objective. The spatial distribution of households is still characterized by traditional Indian values of ethnic segregation. the socioeconomic variables also show separation. allotment procedure. A moral analysis of segregation has to be done in the context of the Indian culture. thereby. Control is maximum when the government owns all the houses. 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. The distribution of these variables shows segregation. The urban social pattern is best explained as one of multiple nuclei.
