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.

It is a synthesis of the spatial relationships of various elements. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. land use pattern and ethnic classifications will be used as key variables to study the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. The literature review shows that a specific study of Navi Mumbai has not been previously documented. This research aspires to contribute to basic research in social geography.Chapter 1: Introduction 1. 1. The purpose of this thesis is to delineate and interpret the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. These include the ethnic composition of the city. Thus. and their social pattern is characterized by residential segregation based on ethnic. The basic research here involves the search for an urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. A policy emphasizing a uniform distribution of the population is the ideological orientation of the government. if any. the study of human settlements has an encompassing view of all the activities it supports. Urban patterns occur because of repetition of these elements. street patterns. economic and social processes within it (Vance.1 Research Problem Statement The overall objective of this thesis is to determine what common patterns.

Physical and economic landscapes. 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. Traditional Indian cities have evolved over the centuries. Different characteristics are drawn from the factors influencing the physical design and cultural aspect of the city. land use and ownership. race. Why is such a study significant? The urban form of the city influences behavioral. Socioeconomic factors. This research determines how the present social pattern relates to various theoretical frameworks. Therefore. Various processes influence the social pattern of the city. housing characteristics.

The design concept of Navi Mumbai was very idealistic. The plan called for the construction of holding ponds to retain excess monsoon run-off. Private industries would not invest in this particular region unless they were assured of workers and so on. This was partly because of the scale and complexity of the project. the plan had a very important political component.

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.

Commuter services have become operational since May 1992. and improvements made in the next phase of design. Problems of design and development were identified. 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. The absence of a port and railway links slowed growth. but a living and working reality. Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970.

The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. the development process has been slow. lower income group. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. the city is no longer a plan on paper. since 1990 there has been accelerated growth due to the commissioning of Nhava-Sheva port. development and implementation of ideas were done in an incremental manner. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 18 NEW BOMBAY BOMBAY Arabian Sea Residential Woodlands Industrial Port Institutional Trucking Wholesale Fishing Wetlands Figure 2. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning.

A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. . 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. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting.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. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. Navi Mumbai is a modern.

It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. Simultaneously.2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. economic and physical environments. It is also a cultural manifestation. residents soon influence their urban environment. India. 1968). income is one of the most important determinants. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . technology.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. 1973). Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern.

The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. 1990). occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. transportation. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. Land ownership patterns. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. 1987). A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. people adapt to the physical environment around them. language and housing character. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. ethnicity. 1968). then they reflect their lifestyles. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. Where market forces work. 1995). principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. and bear characteristics of western influence. 1990). 1991). communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano.the urban pattern. Whatever the mode of construction. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. 3. but four-dimensional. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. However.

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

Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill. Soon. Various economic. others are global in scope. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. Instead. race and religion (Vance. Owner-occupier. The external . The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. 1990). 1995). These factors are (Alexander. Priests. 1983).5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. surplus food production was achieved. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. However. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. Kosambi. However. craftsmen and merchants were born. 3. 1992a). 1987. Domestication of animals and cultivation of land created villages.

The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. For thousands of years. and Thomas. often because of a city wall. commercial buildings. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. Planning controls influence development to a great extent. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. While some processes are culture-specific. within. 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.

The differences may also be placed in a horizontal system (example: language. culture. sometimes reinforced by common work roles. The caste system varies from village to village and is a local phenomenon. Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. Certain customs lower or raise the status of the caste. Various combinations of the hierarchy have come about due to regional differentiation in certain attributes of social living. 1992). The Indian theory of social stratification depends on caste.

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 criteria for the differentiation can normally be translated into money or wealth. Ethnic characteristics refer to language.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The data source was census tracts. has been under strong criticism (Hartshorn. Social rank used the variables. This concept. parenthood.

Traditional places are typically more dense with narrow streets and housing spaces around central courtyards. 1990) showed similar results. 3.2 Third World Cities commercial ethnic group residential industrial Ethnic Status CBD Transition Low income Middle income High income Family Status Socioeconomic Status Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3.

The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi. substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city. 1975). 1986). are very complex and have evolved over a very long time. A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder. ethnicity and literacy. Even single cities. A study of Colombo (Herbert and de Silva. Thus. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. 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.7). social and economic variables may not be the only factors.

The model shows that the indigenous elite were closely associated with the commercial area. Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities. as opposed to conglomerations. and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. 1986).

But. which is adjacent to. The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city.

and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. farming is done only by the Sudra caste. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. caste. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. The social ties are horizontal and vertical. "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own . 1977). in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function. Soon. yet complementary. 3. languages and customs.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 33 Here. In the cities where new professions were created. For example. 1986 residential colonies moved from the center of the city to the urban periphery which were selected for their better geographic. i Symbolic functionalism is performed by religion and caste and buttressed by regional affiliations.8). A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. in general. the farther away from the center. the poorer the household (Cornelius. Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. and especially to construct a structural model. The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. But. has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara. many large cities became crowded. new definitions had to be made. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. spatial segregation based on ethnicity.

In the 18th and 19th centuries. climatic and aesthetic factors. A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city. The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3. The nature of traditional social status and the interdependence and spatial interpretation of diverse.

These three dimensions would form concentric zones (Figure 3. had western style CBDs. had retained their residential core (Mehta. Industrial towns like Jamshedpur were planned around their industrial core. it was found that multiple nuclei were present. commercial or administrative areas. The centroid of the system represents the optimum location for accessibility to all three functions. real case studies did not prove this theory. He postulated three dimensions as being important contributors to residential segregation. Temple Bazaar Centroid Fort Brush (1977) studied 24 cities in India and discerned four types of gradients of population directly related to their Figure 3. However. Instead. Calcutta) has low-density commercial centers surrounded by high-density residential neighborhoods. such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. Their influence and interplay causes residential segregation. Although the neighborhoods that result are not corporate groups in the sense in which they are defined. Bombay. Pune and Varanasi.

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

immigration of rural population leads to segregation based on language. Hoyt and Harris and Ullman. economic status and ethnic background produce a certain spatial pattern in the city. These involve population. Better transportation systems increase mobility and lead to a greater sorting of population (Cadwallader. urbanization and segregation.

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

Social structure in India is a result of cultural. The variables are tabulated below: Table 4.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern. 4. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. caste) dimensions (Hall. concentric zone theory and multiple nuclei theory. In this case study of Navi Mumbai. 1990). and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes. language) and vertical (occupation. The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social patterning will occur. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory. The data available is based on a . religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship. If H0 is false. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. mapping of social patterns in many cities across the world show that the socioeconomic status. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas. 4. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set.2 Hypotheses As discussed in the literature review. religion.

All data is standardized. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated.338 Belapur 9.056 New Panvel 9. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the .1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale. For a social area analysis. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.378 Kopar-khairane 14. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables. Finally. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. The census data is not 100% reliable. data covering a large area is required. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node.357 Survey Coverage 6656 4219 2125 2034 2282 2530 2506 544 % of total 24 26 23 22 25 19 18 23 The issues of validity and reliability arise in the use of census data for testing the hypothesis. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data.5. The second is a principal components analysis. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity.161 Sanpada 2.283 Nerul 16.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27. Table 4.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. the sector is the unit of analysis. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. The only data source that provides this information. In this research. cartographic mapping.109 Kalamboli 9. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. An error of 5-8% is expected. 4.007 Airoli 13. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. This is a detailed stage of analysis. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. the units of analysis are not identical. is census data. 4. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. although variables are related. and compare it to other cities.

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. and results in a simpler pattern. This is varimax rotation. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. 1978). Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix. 1986). and so on" (Kim and Mueller. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor. 1986). In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity. it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. certain restrictions are imposed. 4. Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components. "To obtain the initial solution. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables.5. Corresponding communalities are also estimated. Characteristics of the urban social pattern can be revealed by considering the relationship within groups. the matrix of component scores is computed. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution. The first matrix is a simple data matrix. Finally. This approach to classification is very subjective. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated). The second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution. 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. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. Generally variables with communalities less than 0. Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices. The rotation normally removes the negative loadings. The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix. The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns. The elements of the eigenvectors that are used to compute the scores are called principal component loadings. The . It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. 4.5.

The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework.0. 4. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. then connects the next most similar observations to these. principal components analysis and cluster analysis.5. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. 4. This method joins similar observations. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. namely Vashi. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar.0 to -1. as is the correlation coefficient. Distance coefficients are linked at low values.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. . Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. and so produces better dendrograms.

As the Marathi population is 53% of the total population. Each of the three components have an ethnic variable in them. The first component is one which has a high socioeconomic component dominated by a Muslim population. It appears that there is a segregation based on the ethnic component. The third component is the economically active age group dominated by the Hindu population. The second component has only the population speaking Marathi. this component also describes the general population.58. it represents a majority of the population. Again.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 63 Figure 5. All the components are equally important and separated only by ethnic variables.

At the sub-regional scale as there is a smaller percentage of CIDCO-built houses. individual households have exercised their choice. PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together. The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern.6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. 5. Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi.

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

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

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

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

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