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.

Thus. The purpose of this thesis is to delineate and interpret the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. It is a synthesis of the spatial relationships of various elements. Various processes influence the social pattern of the city. The pattern suggests not only the outcome of . 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. religion. 1.1 Research Problem Statement The overall objective of this thesis is to determine what common patterns. religious and linguistic classes. 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. The basic research here involves the search for an urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. land use and ownership. and their social pattern is characterized by residential segregation based on ethnic. middle class population in India. The urban social pattern is one of the many aspects of the urban form. Socioeconomic factors. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. race. Different characteristics are drawn from the factors influencing the physical design and cultural aspect of the city.Chapter 1: Introduction 1. These include the ethnic composition of the city. Traditional Indian cities have evolved over the centuries. migration. The pattern of Navi Mumbai will be studied at different hierarchical spatial levels: regional (node / township) and sub-regional (sector / neighborhood). and political events may influence the physical design and pattern of a city. A policy emphasizing a uniform distribution of the population is the ideological orientation of the government. Physical and economic landscapes. Therefore. Urban patterns occur because of repetition of these elements. Why is such a study significant? The urban form of the city influences behavioral. This research determines how the present social pattern relates to various theoretical frameworks. this paper will augment existing knowledge about social configurations of planned urban development in Asian regions. exist in the urban social pattern of planned towns in India. An interpretation of the emerging social pattern reveals something of the social character of the city. street patterns. land use pattern and ethnic classifications will be used as key variables to study the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. and the housing market. planning regulations.

The functionality of the city is based on the principle of neighborhood design as seen all over the Western world. Many cities still reflect this street pattern. The neighborhood unit is used as a building block to build New Towns across the world (Perry. streets. Neighborhood planning in the West was a concept put forth by Clarence Perry. Airoli and Kopar-Khairane have industrial estates. the main philosophical design principles of Navi Mumbai are based on Gandhian ideology (Parab. while Nhava-Sheva houses the new container port. There would be no rich or poor nodes (CIDCO. 1991). 1973). Each node was planned to accommodate a range of income groups. nodes share some common facilities such as water reservoirs and transport facilities. commercial.

One of the ideas of putting the environmental city into Dronagiri practice was the creation of woodland corridors (Parab.4 Nodes of Navi Mumbai recreation and timber. 1997). It depended very heavily on external factors. For example. The Development Plan for Navi Mumbai called for the planting of one hundred thousand trees every year!

The Development Plan of Navi Mumbai is an example of the new consciousness for sustainable Kharghar Nerul settlements (CIDCO. flowing from the Western Ghats mountain ranges would irrigate these trees. Holding ponds would be used for pisciculture and recreation. which were closely linked. Private industries would not invest in this particular region unless they were assured of workers and so on. The design concept of Navi Mumbai was very idealistic. As financial and economic considerations depended on the government in office. For industrial growth large finances were required. shopping areas and other facilities. Hence. unless sufficient industrial growth existed. This would also ensure reduction of soil erosion and the development of woodlands for both Figure 2. The primary concerns were related .

Any change in political power would affect the policies and development strategies of this new town.

ground floor houses would be possible initially. Thus. using bamboo instead of steel reinforcements and setting up of local retail shops where residents would be able to buy inexpensive building materials for building their homes (swadeshi) (CIDCO. Incremental housing was suggested as the solution. In planned towns and cities this should be avoided to a great extent by allocating housing in neighborhoods to members of different communities. 1973). cooperative housing groups or private builders. CIDCO would sell the plot at a highly subsidized rate and with a twenty-year repayment period. enclaves or ghettos of age long tradition of ’birds of the same feather flocking together’. Individual families would then have to build their own homes (swavalamban). Housing for the middle income and high income groups would be in the form of CIDCO housing. I). The Gandhian principle of self-help would be used to implement this agenda. Navi Mumbai’s founders saw the construction of large amounts of new housing as an opportunity to break down demographic divisions and to enhance social equity. Housing would be built for the various income groups. To aid residents further. The State shall strive to promote the welfare of the people by securing and protecting as effectively as it may a social order in which justice .shall inform all the institutions of the national life (Article 38). medical care and social welfare.

For them. caste. 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. The plan took into account the fact that one-third of the housing in New Bombay would be sites-and-services plots (CIDCO. economic and political equity. 1973) . The residents could design and implement their construction in any way they chose (swatantrya).

This further contributed to the creation of ethnic enclaves within the settlement. Minimum standards for building construction were developed by CIDCO. These are discussed further in the next chapter. 1973). The planning was for a comprehensive coverage by taking the services to households. The community health care center would primary health care.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 13 To justify this consideration. one high school for 12. This led to the development of ethnic enclaves.

The planners of Navi Mumbai did not intend to create an identity for the city related to physical objects. merchants from neighboring districts migrated into Bombay and constructed homes inside and outside the Fort walls.

The 74th Amendment of the Constitution of India (the 1992 Amendment Act on Municipalities) spells out the devolution of power to the local bodies and democratization of development planning. This Act emphasizes that the management must be done by elected representatives of the people who will account for two-thirds of the board. This committee is responsible for the preparation of the draft development plan. This ensures a bottom-up process with direct inputs from the citizens (UNCHS, 1993).

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

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

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

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

Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning. Hence.

Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970. Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. the city is no longer a plan on paper. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor.6 Land Use of Navi Mumbai Source: CIDCO. recreation and commercial needs. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 18 NEW BOMBAY BOMBAY Arabian Sea Residential Woodlands Industrial Port Institutional Trucking Wholesale Fishing Wetlands Figure 2.

Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 19 This design also strongly supported the need to use the government’s power and machinery to promote the uniform distribution of people and prevent ethnic enclaves. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. . The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. 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 research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. Navi Mumbai is a modern. A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting.

Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. (New Bombay). Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . and bear characteristics of western influence. 1990). residents soon influence their urban environment. Where market forces work. India. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. . Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. 1991). language and housing character. transportation. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. Simultaneously.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. However. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. 1968). The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. 1987). The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context.

Some farmers may sell their land more easily than others may. Time and place may provide them with different characteristics making each city unique and dynamic. Thus urban social patterns are complex manifestations of underlying cultural values intermingled with global economic forces (McGee. “The typical sector represents the formal characteristics found throughout the area and thus acquires some universality” (Lozano. 1971). which may be universal or local. and the ownership. A city replaces existing land use. Thus. Traditional settlements were shaped by (Lozano. Although details may not be identical. In the study of Navi Mumbai.3 Factors Influencing Urban Form Many factors influence the form of cities. every city has certain elements. society. the node (township) and the sector (neighborhood) will be used as the study areas using aggregated household survey data.

The change of land use from rural to urban depends on the existing land use. linguistics and ethnic background also influence urban patterns. Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space. The physical form is a variable of the social and built pattern of the city.a fort or a religious building. buildings and infrastructure. These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern. Traditional cities have used physical forms to interpret cultural and religious beliefs (Lozano. For example. Urban spatial patterns occur because of the repetitive spatial distribution of these elements. and natural and manmade obstacles. The built form is influenced by factors as (Alexander. This representative sector is defined as the smallest area that exhibits the characteristics of the urban settlement. 1995). Since the characteristics are universal (within the frame of study) they may be studied by a spatial representative sector. a hill top site was the utilitarian response to any important building . Doxiadis defines five elements in the study of human settlements. In most studies this unit is the neighborhood which displays both physical and social aspects of the whole urban development.

Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. surplus food production was achieved. within. The external . Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. Soon. 3. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. 1990). Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. others are global in scope. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Various economic. 1983). often because of a city wall. 1992a). A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level.

This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. These factors are (Alexander. and Thomas. commercial buildings. Priests. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. Housing.

The differences may also be placed in a horizontal system (example: language. Ethnic characteristics refer to language. religion or occupation (Bougle. 1992).

Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. the forms of social stratification are many. vertical and horizontal systems of stratification exist. The caste system varies from village to village and is a local phenomenon. 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. religious and ethnic diversity of the country (Gupta. and in the case of India. Hierarchy allows elements of the whole to be ranked with relation to each other (example: income and prestige). linguistic stratification and religious stratification. Vaishya and Sudra are said to have come from the mouth.5. 1992). religion and language are discussed below. Clothing. all elements can not be arranged vertically. Berreman (1965) says "Caste systems rank people by birthascribed group membership rather than by individual attributes.1 Caste Castes are the hierarchical divisions of people based on professional and family membership. 3. However. sometimes reinforced by common work roles. The real world. theoretically. diet and dress. marriage and death ceremonies distinguish one caste from another.5. class. The social stratification is very deep and varied. Repulsion between castes forced isolation and the creation of distinct residential enclaves (Bougle. Thus. 1992a).

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

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

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

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

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

The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work. 1978). 1939 3. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. 1979). 1978). 1990).3).4). The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3.7.3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. 3. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. 1979). 1992 . This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. 1939).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. This is not a generalized model. Hence. 1979). Neighborhoods for each income group are common. Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. 1978). 1979). This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked. For example. However.7. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. 1992). The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. S (Hoyt. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. and Golledge.

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

Public open spaces are generally found only . but socially with more complex relations to one another. 1990) showed similar results. Studies of Brisbane. socioeconomic status. Ethnicity. however. Traditional places are typically more dense with narrow streets and housing spaces around central courtyards.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. 1979). Canada (Herbert and Thomas. 1995) shows that the four important factors in the social pattern are underclass.5 Urban Social Patterns Source: Knox.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 31 predominant in cities where migration is high. Australia (Timms. Hartshorn. 1992. youth/migrants and black poverty. Winnipeg. 3. The changing pattern of family cycle reflects concentric zones while that of social rank is in sectors. traditional and modern design elements juxtaposed in seemingly dichotomous ways.8. 1995. A study of Baltimore (Knox. 1971). Cities in the Third World are frequently dual environments. does not always emerge as an independent component (Scargill.

Even single cities. 1986). 1986 Literacy and ethnic patterns emerged in a sectoral form. 1986). but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges. which is adjacent to. and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder.

An analysis of Calcutta showed a pattern based on land use. 1975). A study of Colombo (Herbert and de Silva. traditional commercial areas and modern commercial areas. The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. as opposed to conglomerations.

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

Pune and Varanasi. . Madras. Hyderabad had two nuclei – the old city and the colonial city. Industrial towns like Jamshedpur were planned around their industrial core. i South Indian cities had higher female employment rate. He postulated three dimensions as being important contributors to residential segregation. real case studies did not prove this theory. such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. commercial or administrative areas. Bombay. Their influence and interplay causes residential segregation. Calcutta) has low-density commercial centers surrounded by high-density residential neighborhoods. i North Indian cities had low female employment rates. low migration and equal male to female ratio. low literacy. 1980:35). Ahmad (1965) did a factor analysis of the socioeconomic characteristics of Indian cities. However. 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.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 34 regional festivals if not usually celebrated in the region within which they live now" (Hall. higher literacy.

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. had western style CBDs. colonial cities. it was found that multiple nuclei were present. and that the temple acted as the most meaningful focus for the spatial distribution of social characteristics. Certain areas are known for their residents speaking a particular language only. These three dimensions would form concentric zones (Figure 3. cities that were well developed even before the colonial period. i The modern planned cities (Jamshedpur. i Metropolitan cities (Bombay. He had the following conclusions. Calcutta and Madras. higher migration and equal male to female ratio.

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

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

The data available is based on a . 1990). language) and vertical (occupation. education. caste) dimensions (Hall. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. 1980). Social area analysis based on western thinking can not be naively applied to the study of urban social patterns in India. 4.1 Constructs and Variables Construct Variable Socioeconomic status Profession Number of earning members Income Education Family status Demographics Women at home Family size Dwelling size Type of house Year of occupation Ethnic status Religion Language 4. Social structure in India is a result of cultural. mapping of social patterns in many cities across the world show that the socioeconomic status. and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes. The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. The variables are tabulated below: Table 4. This database provides aggregated information about each node (township). If H0 is false. H0.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis.2 Hypotheses As discussed in the literature review. religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas. religion. my null hypothesis.4 Data Collection The data required for the analysis can be obtained from census tracts of Navi Mumbai. In this case study of Navi Mumbai. 4. is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social patterning will occur. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. concentric zone theory and multiple nuclei theory.

The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. data covering a large area is required. is census data. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.283 Nerul 16. All data is standardized. 4. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. For a social area analysis.5. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale. The second is a principal components analysis. The only data source that provides this information.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. Finally.338 Belapur 9.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. In this research. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns.056 New Panvel 9.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. the sector is the unit of analysis. An error of 5-8% is expected. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the . The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. although variables are related. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. cartographic mapping.378 Kopar-khairane 14.161 Sanpada 2. This is a detailed stage of analysis. and compare it to other cities. the units of analysis are not identical.007 Airoli 13. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. Table 4. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables. 4. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation.109 Kalamboli 9.

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

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

The second component has only the population speaking Marathi. Each of the three components have an ethnic variable in them. 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. Again. this component also describes the general population. as Hindus are 83% of the population.

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

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

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

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

Figure 6.18 Score 3

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

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

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

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

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