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.

An interpretation of the emerging social pattern reveals something of the social character of the city. Physical and economic landscapes. race. Socioeconomic factors. land use pattern and ethnic classifications will be used as key variables to study the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. 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. This research aspires to contribute to basic research in social geography. The pattern of Navi Mumbai will be studied at different hierarchical spatial levels: regional (node / township) and sub-regional (sector / neighborhood). 1990). planning regulations. housing characteristics. Traditional Indian cities have evolved over the centuries. Thus. middle class population in India. and political events may influence the physical design and pattern of a city. Different characteristics are drawn from the factors influencing the physical design and cultural aspect of the city. Urban patterns occur because of repetition of these elements. Navi Mumbai (New Bombay) is one of the first planned new town developments built for a diverse.

Urbanization and subsequent suburbanization of Bombay have created a linear city such that the central business district (CBD) and residential areas have become further and further apart (Figure 2. In 1661. This planned decentralization was the outcome of efforts by the government to make Bombay more “sustainable” (Bombay Metropolitan Regional Planning Board. The harbor was strengthened.

This enclosed the Town and Island of Bombay. Adequate water is a serious problem. By the early 1900s. However. These formal government bodies were the beginning of a conscientious effort to regulate the growth of Bombay (Banerjee-Guha. Bombay’s infrastructure facilities were stretched to the limit. V. In 1966.2). Land use zoning and the concept of floor space index were incorporated for the first time. the Bombay Municipal Corporation was established. In 1967. Commercial and residential areas were mixed because many merchants carried on business from home (Tindall. 1992).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 4 strong development of mixed land use settlements. 1995). various planning committees were formed to develop a regional plan for Bombay. In the 1960s. They recommended: i the creation of a new town on the mainland across the harbor i develop the suburbs of Bombay further Bombay had reached a level of unmanageable growth by the 1960s. 1965). 1986) The Bombay Metropolitan Regional Planning Board in its report wrote Bombay the Beautiful is no more beautiful. Greater Bombay came into existence only after the Bombay High Court Act of 1945. Many parts of it are not even tolerably clean and healthy. This committee appointed the Bombay Municipal Regional Planning Board to develop the concept further (Gadgil Committee. Transportation is threatening to break down….000 houses. Table 2.

The Post-War development Committee of 1945 and the ’Master Plan in Outline’ prepared by Albert Mayer and N. the Bombay Municipal Regional Planning Board set up two committees to study the development of Bombay. the Gadgil Committee strongly recommended a multi-nuclear growth using the creation of a new town across the harbor. Housing deficits are ever widening and slums like a cancerous growth can be seen anywhere and everywhere. the Bombay Improvement Trust was created.

The site that was finally chosen was across the harbor from Bombay island. 2.

The government would acquire land under its power of eminent domain under Section 22. 1973). financing physical and social infrastructure through land sales. The land notified for acquisition for Navi Mumbai was under private and government ownership (Table 2. 1973). CIDCO used certain development principles in its design. 1985). 1966.

The finality of the approved Development Plan ensures that the pressure and friction which would develop to obtain land use changes for particular land holdings would be largely eliminated . The first step was to identify all the land that needed to be acquired for Navi Mumbai.

Many of these principles of Modernism were used in the planning of Navi Mumbai. m. residential and institutional activity. it was proposed to use cross subsidies. Each township had several sectors. CIDCO decided to build a large part of the housing as public housing. CIDCO decided to use a maximum surcharge of 15% on housing for highest income group to compensate for a maximum subsidy of 45% to the lowest income group (CIDCO. The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. The total land of Navi Mumbai was divided into thirteen townships. Otherwise. land would be leased under a 30-year repayment system to private cooperative housing schemes and private owners. 1977). These were: i decentralization by the design of self-sufficient townships(nodes). The sector was based on the Spanish cuadra of 110 to 100 meters. 1973). i residential neighborhoods (sector). houses or larger (CIDCO. i single-use zoning as opposed to the traditional multiple-use zoning The result was a single-use zoning pattern with distinct areas for industrial. 550 per square meter and the cost of development of land was Rs. 1973) The table shows the ability of each income group to contribute towards owned accommodation.6 Design Principles of Navi Mumbai The conceptual design of Navi Mumbai was developed at the height of Modernism. 1977).

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.

While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. establishment of more industries and construction of more houses. the city is no longer a plan on paper.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 18 NEW BOMBAY BOMBAY Arabian Sea Residential Woodlands Industrial Port Institutional Trucking Wholesale Fishing Wetlands Figure 2. Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. 2. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. development and implementation of ideas were done in an incremental manner. and improvements made in the next phase of design.

The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. Navi Mumbai is a modern. A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. Very little analysis has been done on the outcome of CIDCO's social agenda to ensure diffusion of ethnic groups and the urban social pattern that emerged. .

The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. residents soon influence their urban environment. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. if government agencies or contractors build them. Where market forces work.

Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. ethnicity. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. 1987). The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. 3. (New Bombay). Land ownership patterns. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. then they reflect their lifestyles. It is also a cultural manifestation. principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. 1995). and bear characteristics of western influence. Simultaneously. occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. technology. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. 1968). and those of Mahatma Gandhi. Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. religion. language and housing character. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. 1990). 1973).

Thus urban social patterns are complex manifestations of underlying cultural values intermingled with global economic forces (McGee. linguistics and ethnic background also influence urban patterns. which may be universal or local. The change of land use from rural to urban depends on the existing land use. Doxiadis defines five elements in the study of human settlements. Although details may not be identical. 1995). every city has certain elements. 3.a fort or a religious building. Traditional cities have used physical forms to interpret cultural and religious beliefs (Lozano. Some farmers may sell their land more easily than others may. For example. Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space. The physical form is a variable of the social and built pattern of the city. 1987): i land ownership i street patterns i existing land use i economic considerations i planning regulations i political and historical events The physical expansion of the city is always bound and guided by land ownership. A city replaces existing land use. Since the characteristics are universal (within the frame of study) they may be studied by a spatial representative sector. They are the units of analysis of the morphological study (Knox. Thus. and the ownership. In most studies this unit is the neighborhood which displays both physical and social aspects of the whole urban development. Time and place may provide them with different characteristics making each city unique and dynamic.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 21 Demographics. These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern. 1990). Urban spatial patterns occur because of the repetitive spatial distribution of these elements. 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. This representative sector is defined as the smallest area that exhibits the characteristics of the urban settlement. “The typical sector represents the formal characteristics found throughout the area and thus acquires some universality” (Lozano. 1990). The built form is influenced by factors as (Alexander. In the study of Navi Mumbai.

Repulsion between castes forced isolation and the creation of distinct residential enclaves (Bougle. differentiates itself into only hierarchical status containing inequality (Gupta. Vaishya and Sudra are said to have come from the mouth. these single criterion hierarchies can be misleading as they depend on cutoff points related to individual analysis (Gupta. a hierarchy from Brahman to Sudra has been interpreted (Bougle. language. In India. religion and language are discussed below.2 Class "Class refers to a system of stratification which is economic in character" (Gupta. 1992b).1 Caste Castes are the hierarchical divisions of people based on professional and family membership. 1992b:14).5. and in the case of India. Vegetarian castes occupy higher positions. 3. 1992). marriage and death ceremonies distinguish one caste from another. 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. Class systems by contrast define the rank of their members according to their individual attributes and behavior".

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

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

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

During this time. 1989). Large migration of people from the rural area. 1980). and wood formed niches in the urban pattern. the same theories are being used to describe the social patterns as well. In India where occupation and caste are synonyms. Characteristics from medieval times are Islamic in nature (14th to 17th centuries A. especially seen in the port cities associated with the East India Company (Mills. A generalization of these patterns has been made. this has led to segregation and creation of enclaves within the city. The urban segregation was based on function and occupation premises. The characteristics of the social and built form of the city contribute to its pattern. Residential areas associated with the commercial area were contiguous or within the commercial area (Hall. counting houses. but also on socioeconomic factors (Ramachandran. The morphological components include buildings used for trade warehouses. These are the theories which pertain to the built and social form of the city. Generally. 3. 1978). pottery.were developed (Hall. and insufficient infrastructure in cities has led to the creation of slums and shantytowns (Misra.). 1992). jali (carved screens) and projecting balconies (Kopardekara. D. Kshatriyas in the eastern and southeastern part. Diversification of professions due to industrialization in the post-independence era has resulted in further complexity (Becker. many researchers have pointed to the lack of penetration of urban values into the countryside.

As the built form depends on the social characteristics portrayed by its residents. The Islamic elements included the mosque and domestic architecture which emphasized the purdah through enclosed courtyards. 1988). metalware. jewelry. the Hindu tradition continued. the Brahmans worked and lived in the northern district. 1980). The colonial influence (17th to early 20th century A. and the apparent timelessness and permanence of village life” (Hall. and Hindu elements of this period are not distinct from earlier ones. Vaishyas in the southern part and Sudras in the western district. The residential character throughout this period was segregated. Areas for selling of specific goods – cloth. It has been shown that rural values have penetrated the urban philosophy due to large-scale migration. “In the case of India. Many researchers have tried to fit Indian urban growth into a theoretical model.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 27 The residential districts were divided among the four castes. military establishments . The three leading theories described below are based on the built form of the city. There was further subdivisions within each district depending on the sub-caste. This led to the development of commercial centers and zoning based on Western market principles. Residential segregation is no longer based only on occupation and caste. 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. 1986). On the periphery of these urban centers.

This model was based on Burgess’ experience in the American mid-west cities.2). This was surrounded by a transition zone. The public transport system had also improved significantly and allowed the middle-class to . free Middle income market. 3. others dynamic in nature. they moved to better housing districts (Burgess.7. It was partly based on Low income economic factors. some static. 1929). 1992). most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. 1979). The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. The movement was towards the periphery. 1992). and especially in Chicago. and studying how the city grew (Scargill. The basic premise in this model was that of succession and invasion whereby population groups gradually moved out as their economic and social status improved. 1990). The CBD core had all major commercial. This also forced an outward expansion. High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas. and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess. it is a descriptive framework to CBD analyze spatial organization of land use in a city Transition and its change over time. With affluence. Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn.2 Concentric Zone Theory Burgess’ research on the distributional pattern of Source: Burgess. 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. It also had older residential districts. Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded. 1929). The next zone had lower income housing.1 Concentric Zone Theory This theory put forth by Burgess in 1925 related population mobility and societal organization to the physical expansion of the city (Burgess. In the early 1920s. accessibility to a single-centered city. The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city. 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. which were being taken over by the expanding CBD.

4).4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. 1992 . 1939 3. 1992). 1990). The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work.7.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. 1939). and Golledge. 1978). This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. 3. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge.3). 1979). Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. 1979). This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. S (Hoyt.7. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill. 1979). This is not a generalized model. 1978). It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. 1978). It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. Hence. Neighborhoods for each income group are common. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. For example. 1979).3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. However. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill.

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

Traditional places are typically more dense with narrow streets and housing spaces around central courtyards. however. Studies of Brisbane. 1979). socioeconomic status.

Social morphological models constructed for the Third World cities show that there is a central concentration of commercial activity and a number of residential neighborhoods. The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city.6) (Herbert and Thomas.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi. 1975). The center of the city was the plaza. The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3. are very complex and have evolved over a very long time. A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder. The nuclei are original village.7 Asian Ports pattern showed concentric zones for land use. The more Figure 3.

Around the plaza was the important buildings including a church. social and economic variables may not be the only factors. The social Figure 3. Even single cities.

The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. along riverbanks).

The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. caste. i Symbolic functionalism is performed by religion and caste and buttressed by regional affiliations. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. But. in rural areas. 1977). and especially to construct a structural model. For example. In the 18th and 19th centuries. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara. many large cities became crowded. 1986). In Lima. spatial segregation based on ethnicity. In the cities where new professions were created. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function.8 Latin American Cities America. and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. 1980): i Residences have not yet come to serve the symbolic function they do in the Western world.

Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own . status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation.8. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. the poorer the household (Cornelius.

Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas.8). A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 33 Here. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. in general. climatic and aesthetic factors. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes.

such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. low migration and equal male to female ratio. He postulated three dimensions as being important contributors to residential segregation. Instead. commercial or administrative areas. cities that were well developed even before the colonial period.

Hyderabad had two nuclei – the old city and the colonial city. i The modern planned cities (Jamshedpur.

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

Under these conditions. urbanization and segregation. 1955).socioeconomic status. and ethnicity confirmed the validity of the analysis. family status and ethnic status. Hoyt. Although these analyses have been more effective for studying North American cities. Cities are complex entities that have many different functions performed by many different people. and housing characteristics. Better transportation systems increase mobility and lead to a greater sorting of population (Cadwallader. 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. studies in Calcutta. economic status and ethnic background produce a certain spatial pattern in the city. Generally the economic model showed a sectored pattern. Cairo and Helsinki showed some useful generalization. It was first put forth by Shevky and Williams (1949) in a study of Los Angeles. mapping of social area analysis for a large sample of cities showed that socioeconomic status. 1985). immigration of rural population leads to segregation based on language. However. and Harris and Ullman will be the theoretical framework for the conceptualization of the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. 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. The social area analysis may be done statistically by a factor analysis. These factors are taken into consideration in social area analysis. Earlier. the city was analyzed as a composite made up of three layers. The theories put forth by Burgess. Thus. This analysis classifies census tract data into three main constructs . there was considerable criticism about the choice of variables. These three factors also corresponded to the theoretical models proposed by Burgess. The study involves the categorization of a city based on social rank. The basic premise of social area analysis is that a city cannot be studied in isolation from the overall society (Shevky and Bell.

This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes. 1980). This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social patterning will occur. religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship.

Table 4.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale.

Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. The second is a principal components analysis. 4. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels. An error of 5-8% is expected.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. This is a detailed stage of analysis. although variables are related.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. In this research. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. cartographic mapping. data covering a large area is required.056 New Panvel 9.161 Sanpada 2. and compare it to other cities. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated.109 Kalamboli 9. 4. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. the sector is the unit of analysis.338 Belapur 9. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. the units of analysis are not identical.

The . The first matrix is a simple data matrix. and so on" (Kim and Mueller. 4. Generally variables with communalities less than 0. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components. Corresponding communalities are also estimated. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation.5. 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. 1978). The second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. 4. The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix. This approach to classification is very subjective. In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity. 1986). The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated). 1986).Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor. "To obtain the initial solution. and results in a simpler pattern. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution. Finally. The rotation normally removes the negative loadings. Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables. the matrix of component scores is computed. it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix. Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. 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. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix. This is varimax rotation. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. certain restrictions are imposed. These restrictions are (1) there are k common components (2) underlying components are orthogonal to each other (3) the first component accounts for as much variance as possible. Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous.5.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices.

A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. . namely Vashi. principal components analysis and cluster analysis. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. Distance coefficients are linked at low values. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. 4. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. and so produces better dendrograms. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. as is the correlation coefficient. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. 4. then connects the next most similar observations to these. 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. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. This method joins similar observations. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram.5.0.

As the Marathi population is 53% of the total population. The cluster analysis shows a segregation in Cluster 1 caused by high number of earners with a high percentage of households speaking Marathi and a low percentage of . This can be translated into a middle-class population. Each of the three components have an ethnic variable in them. this component also describes the general population. All the components are equally important and separated only by ethnic variables. The third component is the economically active age group dominated by the Hindu population.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 63 Figure 5.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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