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.

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. Some of the highlights of the design elements of this plan were sector planning. Many of the sectors were residential in character. 1973) The table shows the ability of each income group to contribute towards owned accommodation. The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. The square had a significance in Hinduism as this perfect geometric shape was thought to be .

The Draft Development Plan spelled out "there is a tendency in India that induces people to live in like groups. The State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds of religion. Thus. Housing for the middle income and high income groups would be in the form of CIDCO housing. More durable material could be used in the course of time.

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

market for vegetables, foodgrains, oil seeds, sugar and spices was moved from South Bombay to Navi Mumbai (CIDCO, 1973). A separate railway siding and truck terminal were constructed to facilitate effective relocation. This involved the relocation of 30,000 jobs from Bombay and the reduction of 5000 truck trips per day. A new iron and steel stockyard complex has been developed in Navi Mumbai. This means the relocation of 25,000 jobs and a reduction of 1000 truck trips per day to Bombay. However, the economic agenda, which was based on agriculture and cottage industries, is no longer effective because of the government’s redoubled commitment to a policy of industrialization. Navi Mumbai continues to be exploited as a major industrial zone (Engel, 1991). CIDCO's third objective was to provide physical and social amenities in Navi Mumbai. The land use of Navi Mumbai shows these amenities (Table 2.6 and Figure 2.6). Table 2.6 Land Use of Navi Mumbai, 1993 (in sq. km.) Land-use Zone 1979 1985 1986 1991 Residential 101.15 133.99 127.08 129.87 Commercial 6.51 6.51 6.51 5.75 Industrial 43.21 43.14 43.14 43.14 Port 12.00 22.7 22.7 22.7 Wholesale market 6.08 4.54 4.54 4.6 Woodlands / Park 90.26 61.24 68.15 69.35 Institutional .76 1.09 1.09 1.09 Fishing and allied 6.14 3.44 3.44 3.44 Transportation 30.86 30.35 30.35 29.73 No development 46.73 36.70 36.70 34.03 Total 343.70 343.70 343.70 343.70

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

Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. housing requirements. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. since 1990 there has been accelerated growth due to the commissioning of Nhava-Sheva port.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen. but a living and working reality. utilities. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. the development process has been slow. establishment of more industries and construction of more houses. the city is no longer a plan on paper.

Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970.

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

However. (New Bombay). Where market forces work. economic and physical environments. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. Thus. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. 1968). occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. 1987). The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. 1990). Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. If the residents build the buildings themselves. 3. ethnicity. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis.2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. 1968). religion. 1991). 1973). Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. It is also a cultural manifestation. then they reflect their lifestyles. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. and bear characteristics of western influence. . Whatever the mode of construction. The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. residents soon influence their urban environment.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. but four-dimensional. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. and those of Mahatma Gandhi. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. if government agencies or contractors build them. 1995). The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. technology. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. language and housing character. people adapt to the physical environment around them. 1990). The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. Education. communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. transportation. Land ownership patterns.the urban pattern. income is one of the most important determinants. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. Simultaneously. India.

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

The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. 1987. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. within. craftsmen and merchants were born. For thousands of years. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. often because of a city wall. Housing. cities were very simple although they rarely served single purposes. While some processes are culture-specific. 3. they supported a range of activities. A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. Priests. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. However. Soon. surplus food production was achieved. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. others are global in scope. 1983). The external . The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world.4 The Evolution of the Urban Form of Indian Cities The traditional theory of urban origin is generally attributed to Childe (Herbert. 1990). 3. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill. race and religion (Vance. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. 1979).5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. 1986): i ethnic composition of the city i migration i religion i economic considerations i race i political and historical events The housing market also influences the social pattern of the city. These factors are (Alexander. and Thomas. Kosambi. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. Instead. 1992a).

The population may be stratified based on income.1 Caste Castes are the hierarchical divisions of people based on professional and family membership. As many individual criteria are . these single criterion hierarchies can be misleading as they depend on cutoff points related to individual analysis (Gupta. The spirit of the caste system is determined by the attitudes of each caste to the other. this popular caste hierarchy is not clear throughout the Indian subcontinent (Srinivas. Thus. culture. thighs and feet of the Creator.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 23 manifestation of the separation and hierarchy through particular attributes of the castes brings about social stratification of the urban social pattern (Marriott. 1992b).

The wake of Independence brought with it violence and terror in the Indo-Pakistan borders in Punjab and Bengal. degree of control over the language and relationship between the languages affect their social communication.5. Jainism and Sikhism stemmed off from Hinduism and are very similar to Hinduism. not subjects” (Hodson.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century.

Hindi was chosen because it was the language spoken by the largest percent of the population while was a result of the British legacy. occupation. Islam was a religion that came to India from outside and is culturally very different from Hinduism. However. A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. 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. prestige and income to form a socioeconomic status. 1985). At this time they felt the need for a political party of their own. The major languages of India are Hindi.Jainism and Sikhism. In 1906 they formed the All-India Muslim League. absorbing other religious doctrines and never proselytizing. 1977). the Muslims were in power over most of India. A Hindu revival period in the late nineteenth century to arouse enthusiasm for political action made the Muslims more insecure. Buddhism. Malayalam. 1985). The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service.3 Religion Religion and language have provided the motive power for nationalism in India (Brass.

The linguistic distribution is not only diverse but also very complex (Das Gupta. “In most folk-memory the Muslims of India had been ruler.5. 1997). Marathi. The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. The framers of the Indian Constitution chose Hindi and English as the official languages of the government (King. Telugu. it may be better to create a composite index of education. Hindus and Muslims drifted apart in the issue of independence from British rule. which culminated in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan.

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

The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. . The streets ran from north to south and from east to west.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form. Buddhism. If it could not be a perfect square. Sikhism were born in India while Islam. Despite the Act. religion and language is the issue of group identity which is the cause of most ethnic conflicts. Hinduism. The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B.

Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. which contributes many elements to the urban form. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. governed the alignment of roads. violence sparked off by language issues has continued to occur in India. This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. The multi-dimensional society was soon complicated by the emergence of other religions. 1969).

While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. Jainism. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. Prime commercial and residential land was located near the temple. The temple also influences the siting of other land uses. both from within and without the country. However. In the initial stages it was in the form of caste differentiation as prescribed by the Hindu/ Vedic texts. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. 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. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. C to 12th century AD). 1974). the creator.

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

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

The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. Neighborhoods for each income group are common. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. 1979). 1978). 1990). Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. For example. This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. 1939). and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. 3. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked. The model also accounts for growth along transport routes.4). This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. Hence. 1978).3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas.3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt.7. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. 1939 3. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3.3). However. 1978). It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. 1979). and Golledge. Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. 1992). 1979).7. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. S (Hoyt. 1992 . This is not a generalized model. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill. 1979). It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models.

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

Cities in the Third World are frequently dual environments. Public open spaces are generally found only . Canada (Herbert and Thomas. 3. 1992. 1990) showed similar results. 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. 1995.2 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 3.5 Urban Social Patterns Source: Knox. A study of Baltimore (Knox. Hartshorn. Traditional places are typically more dense with narrow streets and housing spaces around central courtyards. 1995) shows that the four important factors in the social pattern are underclass.8.

The nuclei are original village. 1986). The model shows that the indigenous elite were closely associated with the commercial area. substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 32 around religious buildings. 1986). The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. The social Figure 3. A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. 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. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. Even single cities. and surrounds old Delhi (Figure 3. Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities. 1974) found that social status. The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. A study of Colombo (Herbert and de Silva. 1986). The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3. 1986 Literacy and ethnic patterns emerged in a sectoral form. but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges. 1986).

Thus. as opposed to conglomerations. land use. ethnicity and literacy. and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. An analysis of Calcutta showed a pattern based on land use.7). social and economic variables may not be the only factors. 1980. The more Figure 3. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city.7 Asian Ports pattern showed concentric zones for land use.

The center of the city was the plaza. which is adjacent to. But. The migrants and poor did not live in the core of the city. A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder.

It has been found that Indian cities defy social modeling. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. 1980): i Residences have not yet come to serve the symbolic function they do in the Western world. The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. the farther away from the center. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city. the poorer the household (Cornelius. Santiago and Chile Source: Lowder. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. 1975). But. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center.8). In the 18th and 19th centuries.8 Latin American Cities America.

Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. in rural areas. in general. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. For example. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. spatial segregation based on ethnicity. and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 33 Here. In Lima. i Symbolic functionalism is performed by religion and caste and buttressed by regional affiliations. The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3.

A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own . in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function.3 Indian Cities In cities of India.8. yet complementary. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. The social ties are horizontal and vertical. In the cities where new professions were created. new definitions had to be made. farming is done only by the Sudra caste. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. caste.

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

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

This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts.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. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory. language) and vertical (occupation. my null hypothesis. religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship.

For a social area analysis. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. 4. Finally.161 Sanpada 2. 4.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. the sector is the unit of analysis. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity. This is a detailed stage of analysis. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. An error of 5-8% is expected. The census data is not 100% reliable. The only data source that provides this information. Table 4. The second is a principal components analysis. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.378 Kopar-khairane 14. All data is standardized.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. the units of analysis are not identical. At the regional scale the data is tabulated.056 New Panvel 9.5. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used.338 Belapur 9. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. is census data. data covering a large area is required.109 Kalamboli 9. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. and compare it to other cities.

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

The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. This method joins similar observations. 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. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. then connects the next most similar observations to these. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. and so produces better dendrograms. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. Distance coefficients are linked at low values.5. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. 4. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. principal components analysis and cluster analysis.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. 4. namely Vashi. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. .4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis.0 to -1.0. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1.

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 . It appears that there is a segregation based on the ethnic component. as Hindus are 83% of the population. As the Marathi population is 53% of the total population. this component also describes the general population. it represents a majority of the population.4.

This can be translated into a middle-class population. The first component is one which has a high socioeconomic component dominated by a Muslim population. Again.

the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise. Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi.6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. although the government policy was to prevent the formation of ethnic enclaves. and a strong ethnic component is seen. The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 64 households speaking Malayalam. .

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 6.15 Clustering of Sectors

Figure 6.16 Score 1

Figure 6.17 Score 2

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

The segregation is attributed to the ethnic variables. However. The government hoped that this would distribute people based on socioeconomics and break barriers based on religion and language. Three leading theories put forth were concentric zone theory. and formulated a policy to support it. It was hoped that a majority of the residential construction could be achieved though a policy of swavalambhan (self-reliance) and swatantrya (mutual selfhelp). strongly influenced by ethnic variables. This was the first cause of separation in residential neighborhoods. 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. Bombay is the financial and economic capital of India. The Muslims came to India as invaders. thus. and the government had a specific social and political agenda. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. The culture of this race of people is very different from the Hindus. The draft development plan of Navi Mumbai had very strong functional and social objectives. The government also decided to take up most of the initial building construction. It was also influenced by the concept of the city as a melting pot (Engel. raise the standard of living and reduce social inequalities. India. caste. The Hindu laws and treatises specified residential locations for different castes. These theories explain the urban social pattern . Partition and the first years of independence were. 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. The religious divide was used in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. and provide an infrastructure which would promote ethnic heterogeneity. Navi Mumbai is separated from the metropolis of Bombay only by the Thane Creek. 1991). religion and language. 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. Housing would be allotted according to the preference of size of dwelling provided by applicants. support an aggressive industrialization policy. Planning policies in Navi Mumbai were strongly influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. Navi Mumbai is still dependent on Bombay for much of its activity. The important objectives of Navi Mumbai were: attract some of the immigrant population. Ethnic enclaves have always characterized traditional settlements in India. Households would normally place this preference based on how much they can pay. Traditional Indian cities have always had a strong ethnic component in their urban social pattern. Areas dominated by Muslims are common in most cities in India. The review of secondary source material shows that urban social patterns have been studied across the world.Chapter 7: Conclusion The purpose of this thesis is to delineate the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. Religious tensions have always existed in India. Political and administrative boundaries in independent India were decided on linguistic lines. The thesis addresses this social objective. The government had a very practical interest in avoiding ethnic confrontation.

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

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