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.

In India the square was used as the basic unit in the layout of traditional cities. Each township had several sectors. houses or larger (CIDCO. The average cost of construction was Rs. 40 in 1970. The square had a significance in Hinduism as this perfect geometric shape was thought to be . Children were able to walk to school on the V7 through green belts (Sarin.

The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. 1961). This would have a great drain on the financial resources of the government. These were: i decentralization by the design of self-sufficient townships(nodes). Some of the highlights of the design elements of this plan were sector planning.

One of the ideas of putting the environmental city into Dronagiri practice was the creation of woodland corridors (Parab. flowing from the Western Ghats mountain ranges would irrigate these trees.

Individual families would then have to build their own homes (swavalamban). The design of a completely new city was a very good opportunity to implement these national concerns. The remaining two-thirds of the population could afford more expensive housing. Housing for the middle income and high income groups would be in the form of CIDCO housing. enclaves or ghettos of age long tradition of ’birds of the same feather flocking together’. place of birth or any of them (Article 15.

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.

The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. and housing occupancy rates are high. and improvements made in the next phase of design. Problems of design and development were identified. recreation and commercial needs. establishment of more industries and construction of more houses. Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. 2. .10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen. housing requirements. the extension of the railway lines.

While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. but a living and working reality.

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

Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. It is also a cultural manifestation. 1973). 1995). 1987). Simultaneously. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. 1968). The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. However. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. language and housing character. income is one of the most important determinants. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. 1990). Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. 1968).1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. India. .

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

Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Soon. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. 1992a). 1990). Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. Priests. For thousands of years. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. often because of a city wall. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. 1983). 3. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. While some processes are culture-specific. within. they supported a range of activities. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. Various economic. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. commercial buildings. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. 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. 3. 1990). 1995). Domestication of animals and cultivation of land created villages.4 The Evolution of the Urban Form of Indian Cities The traditional theory of urban origin is generally attributed to Childe (Herbert. others are global in scope.

A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. Owner-occupier. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development.

However.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. craftsmen and merchants were born. race and religion (Vance. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs.

3. arms. theoretically. The differences may also be placed in a horizontal system (example: language. The Indian theory of social stratification depends on caste. the forms of social stratification are many. Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. vertical and horizontal systems of stratification exist. Stratification implies a differentiation based on a set of criteria. 3. However. a hierarchy from Brahman to Sudra has been interpreted (Bougle. Along with the caste exist occupational stratification.

Hierarchy allows elements of the whole to be ranked with relation to each other (example: income and prestige). The social stratification is very deep and varied. these single criterion hierarchies can be misleading as they depend on cutoff points related to individual analysis (Gupta. sometimes reinforced by common work roles. all elements can not be arranged vertically. this popular caste hierarchy is not clear throughout the Indian subcontinent (Srinivas. Thus. rituals. language. 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. 1992). The criteria for the differentiation can normally be translated into money or wealth. unfortunately. 1992). thighs and feet of the Creator. 1992). culture. religion or occupation (Bougle. diet and dress. The population may be stratified based on income.

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

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

The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. The multi-dimensional society was soon complicated by the emergence of other religions. Hinduism. However. class. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. governed the alignment of roads. C to 12th century AD). and which had as many padas as there were to be residential sectors was selected. which was the terrestrial representation of the cosmic universe inhabited by Brahma. In planning the town a vastupurusha mandala which was most auspicious. padas. The streets ran from north to south and from east to west. religion and language is the issue of group identity which is the cause of most ethnic conflicts. Sikhism were born in India while Islam. The science of architecture and planning. 1969).1). cyclical and swastika (Figure 3.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. Prime commercial and residential land was located near the temple. The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 26 finally reached in 1963 under the Official Languages Act. The square was used in the creation of the vastupurusha mandala. both from within and without the country. Stratification of the society had to accommodate these religious factors. Related to castes. a perfect rectangle was accepted. In the initial stages it was in the form of caste differentiation as prescribed by the Hindu/ Vedic texts. Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict.1 Circle and Swastika depended on the natural features of the site. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. Despite the Act. Judaism and Christianity found their way into India. violence sparked off by language issues has continued to occur in India. Buddhism. The final shape of the town Figure 3. Social assimilation and mobilization are a part of any evolving civilization. The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B. 3. This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form. the creator. Jainism. orientation of buildings and arrangement of internal rooms based on astrological and religious criteria (Volwahsen. Vastushastra. . 1986). If it could not be a perfect square. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. The temple also influences the siting of other land uses. The town wall enclosed the mandala. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. which contributes many elements to the urban form. 1974).

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

7. This was surrounded by a transition zone. It also had older residential districts. The next zone had lower income housing. 1992). Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn. These immigrants first found cheap housing in the inner city. 1929 various groups of society led him to conclude that the city was made up of concentric zones with the central business district (CBD) at the center (Figure 3. and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess. Figure 3.2). The public transport system had also improved significantly and allowed the middle-class to . The CBD core had all major commercial. 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. 1929).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. Thus. most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. This also forced an outward expansion. The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. 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. 3.1 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. Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development. The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. 1979). Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded. free Middle income market. others dynamic in nature. The movement was towards the periphery. and studying how the city grew (Scargill. some static. political and social activities. and especially in Chicago. accessibility to a single-centered city. 1929). they moved to better housing districts (Burgess. 1992). which were being taken over by the expanding CBD. In the early 1920s. Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city. High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas. 1979). It was partly based on Low income economic factors. This model was based on Burgess’ experience in the American mid-west cities. it is a descriptive framework to CBD analyze spatial organization of land use in a city Transition and its change over time. With affluence. 1990). 1929).2 Concentric Zone Theory Burgess’ research on the distributional pattern of Source: Burgess. which had factories and slums.

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

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

The changing pattern of family cycle reflects concentric zones while that of social rank is in sectors. 3. A study of Baltimore (Knox. socioeconomic status. 1995) shows that the four important factors in the social pattern are underclass. 1990) showed similar results. 1992. Winnipeg. does not always emerge as an independent component (Scargill. Hartshorn. traditional and modern design elements juxtaposed in seemingly dichotomous ways. Australia (Timms.

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.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 32 around religious buildings. 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. The migrants and poor did not live in the core of the city. The modern place is more spacious.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi. The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. 1986). A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges. The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3. substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city. Thus. ethnicity and literacy. The more Figure 3.

The model shows that the indigenous elite were closely associated with the commercial area. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city. traditional commercial areas and modern commercial areas. along riverbanks). The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza. A study of Colombo (Herbert and de Silva. 1980. The center of the city was the plaza. social and economic variables may not be the only factors. 1975).7). But. The social Figure 3.

i Symbolic functionalism is performed by religion and caste and buttressed by regional affiliations. Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. It has been found that Indian cities defy social modeling. 1986). Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. caste. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function. Santiago and Chile Source: Lowder. 1977). languages and customs. The social ties are horizontal and vertical. 1986 residential colonies moved from the center of the city to the urban periphery which were selected for their better geographic.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 33 Here. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. 1975).8). The nature of traditional social status and the interdependence and spatial interpretation of diverse. For example. farming is done only by the Sudra caste. the poorer the household (Cornelius. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. climatic and aesthetic factors. In the 18th and 19th centuries. 1980): i Residences have not yet come to serve the symbolic function they do in the Western world. The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. Soon. A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city. and especially to construct a structural model. new definitions had to be made. in general. 3. spatial segregation based on ethnicity. and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. many large cities became crowded. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own . has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara.8. In Lima. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. in rural areas. the farther away from the center. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis.3 Indian Cities In cities of India. But. yet complementary. In the cities where new professions were created.8 Latin American Cities America. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas.

These three dimensions would form concentric zones (Figure 3. These three dimensions were i socioeconomic dimension symbolized by the bazaar i political dimension represented by an administrative symbol i prestige dimension derived from the religious function of a temple.

Their influence and interplay causes residential segregation. Chandigarh) have low population densities with no concentration of industrial. . He had the following conclusions. cities that were well developed even before the colonial period. Ahmad (1965) did a factor analysis of the socioeconomic characteristics of Indian cities. Instead. such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. colonial cities. Madras. Industrial towns like Jamshedpur were planned around their industrial core. Weinstein (1974) made an attempt to produce a conceptual model for the social segregation of an Indian city. Certain areas are known for their residents speaking a particular language only. higher migration and equal male to female ratio. i The modern planned cities (Jamshedpur. and that the temple acted as the most meaningful focus for the spatial distribution of social characteristics. higher literacy. 1974 evolutionary pattern.

The centroid of the system represents the optimum location for accessibility to all three functions. commercial or administrative areas. i Metropolitan cities (Bombay. had western style CBDs. real case studies did not prove this theory.

Census data from 1881. religious polarity. A systematic analysis of census data for Bombay was done (Kosambi. 1986). Analysis at the level of a single city gave patterns that are more complex. castes and classes produces a more heterogeneous pattern. The social patterns were also strongly influenced by the age of the city. 1831 and 1961 was used to determine the evolution and change of the social pattern. 1901.

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

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

Social area analysis based on western thinking can not be naively applied to the study of urban social patterns in India. 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. religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship.

This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. The variables are tabulated below: Table 4. The data available is based on a .3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern.

The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. the units of analysis are not identical. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. In this research. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. cartographic mapping. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the .283 Nerul 16. The second is a principal components analysis. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data.338 Belapur 9. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. For a social area analysis. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. This is a detailed stage of analysis. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. The census data is not 100% reliable. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels. All data is standardized. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C.378 Kopar-khairane 14. although variables are related. Finally.109 Kalamboli 9. 4. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables.

These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data.161 Sanpada 2. At the regional scale the data is tabulated.056 New Panvel 9. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity. data covering a large area is required.

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

Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. namely Vashi. and so produces better dendrograms.5.0 to -1. then connects the next most similar observations to these. principal components analysis and cluster analysis.0.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. 4. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. 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 aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. 4.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. Distance coefficients are linked at low values. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. as is the correlation coefficient. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. . A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. This method joins similar observations.

Data for the regional and sub-regional scale was collected from the 1995 socioeconomic survey conducted by CIDCO.2 Descriptive Analysis of Data The different constructs and variable names described in the methodology section are tabulated below (Table 5.

It appears that there is a segregation based on the ethnic component. The second component has only the population speaking Marathi. it represents a majority of the population. This can be translated into a middle-class population. As the Marathi population is 53% of the total population. as Hindus are 83% of the population. The first component is one which has a high socioeconomic component dominated by a Muslim population. this component also describes the general population.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 63 Figure 5.75 to 2.4.

All the components are equally important and separated only by ethnic variables. Again. 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 . The third component is the economically active age group dominated by the Hindu population.58.

The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. individual households have exercised their choice.6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. . and distinctly driven by an ethnic component at the sub-regional scale. In summary. and a strong ethnic component is seen. although the government policy was to prevent the formation of ethnic enclaves. At the sub-regional scale as there is a smaller percentage of CIDCO-built houses.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 64 households speaking Malayalam. the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise. Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi. 5. PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together.

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

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

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

The PCA reduces the dimensionality of the data into a more interpretable form. Analysis was done to map the urban social pattern of many cities across the world. The first methodology is a descriptive 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 data at both scales is tabulated. The variables selected are reduced into a smaller number of constructs. A variation in the data greater than 15% on each side of the mean is considered as unequal distribution. In Navi Mumbai. a cluster analysis was done of the cases of the data set. Succession and invasion based on social and economic status is the basic assumption of this theory. Four methods were used to analyze the data. The concentric zone theory relates the pattern of cities to population mobility. That would indicate that enclaves have not been caused by individual variables. Since. special emphasis has to be given to the ethnic components. The second theory. the scale was smaller. Mobility and immigration are the key variables of this theory. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. Social area analysis broadly classifies variables into three constructs. The second methodology is principal components analysis (PCA). These are socioeconomic construct. family status and ethnic status. and the sub-regional scale of the sectors (neighborhoods) of Vashi node. The constructs of the social area analysis have been found to correspond to the three theories. The software package SPSS was used to do the analysis. Analysis of data was done at two scales.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 75 and its change over time. the family component showed a concentric ring pattern. Using the secondary source material as reference. The other variables selected were number of earning members. Generally the socioeconomic model showed a sectored pattern. grouping of variables is expected to be under the three constructs. family status and ethnic status. The methodology used was that of social area analysis. family size and type of house under family status. The methodologies were techniques of multivariate analysis. The multiple nuclei theory proposes that patterns could be arranged around several centers. The similarity between the . then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. In the case of Navi Mumbai this is important because of the policy to prevent segregation based on ethnic variables. and histogram drawn of the variable selected from each data set. socioeconomic. These scales were the regional scale of the nodes (townships). Heterogeneity of the population is detected if these three constructs emerge from the analysis. Next. Wedge patterns representing income groups are the outcome of the theory. Two religion variables and two language variables have been selected representing the ethnic construct. is an analysis primarily of economic variables. The variables selected under each construct were drawn out of experience of the researchers. At the regional scale the analysis was done between the eight nodes to study their similarity. If H0 is false. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. the analysis allowed a more detailed interpretation. income and education under the socioeconomic construct. sector theory. Twenty-three sectors of Vashi were then analyzed. and demographics.

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