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.

So each sector had mixed use. both materials and human) and swatantrya (self-motivation and mutual self-help) (Ganguli. All houses in a neighborhood were occupied by a particular caste. Many cities still reflect this street pattern. Each node is divided into neighborhoods (or sectors). main streets formed perfect rectangles dividing the city into separate residential areas based on caste. larger amenities by contiguous neighborhoods. and progressively moved outward depending on the natural landscape. Mr. The nodes contain residential. This is significantly different from the single-use planning of Modernism. There would be no rich or poor nodes (CIDCO.4). the four castes are Brahmin. The functionality of the city is based on the principle of neighborhood design as seen all over the Western world. The task of designing and detailing the physical design was carried out by CIDCO.

The planning was for a comprehensive coverage by taking the services to households. It would be a small hospital and polyclinic where specialized health care would be provided to cases referred by the community health care center and general practitioners. The Governor of Bombay also encouraged this development because it reinforced the traditional panchayati (selfgovernment) system of administration by which the council of elders settled religious.

Comprehensive Plan. The direct result of this Act is the creation, in 1992, of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation. This allowed CIDCO to give up its role as New Town Development Authority (CIDCO, 1995). A heavy-handed approach was used by the government to implement its social policy. As most of the housing was built by CIDCO, a government agency, the government could control, if not regulate, the distribution of the population on socioeconomic basis. Households desirous of buying a house built by CIDCO had to submit an application that stated the dwelling size they preferred. CIDCO allotted these houses, depending on when construction was completed, on a rolling basis. This was intended to ensure a random distribution of the various linguistic and religious groups of the population. The pattern expected would now be one based predominantly on income. 2.9 The Reality of Implementing the Plan The planning of Navi Mumbai began in 1971. The results of each of the planning objectives can be studied now. The first objective of the Development Plan of Navi Mumbai was to reduce congestion of Bombay by absorbing immigrants and attracting some of the present population of Bombay. Table 2.5 Population Density in Various Sectors of Bombay(BMRDA, 1978 in UNCHS, 1993) 1971 1981 1991 Population Density Population Density Population Density (in ’000s) (pop/ha) (in ’000s) (pop/ha) (in ’000s) (pop/ha) CBD 1120 1659 1031 1527 849 1258 Central Bombay 1950 1349 2254 1559 2309 1597 Bombay Island 3070 1447 3285 1549 3158 1489 Bombay Suburbs 2900 544 4958 930 6751 1266 Navi Mumbai1 128 600 328 617 Over the 1981-91 period, there was a considerable decline in the population of the CBD and Bombay island. The increase in the population of the suburbs and Navi Mumbai accounts for the decline in the CBD and Bombay island. Outmigration to other cities and countries is negligible (BMRDA, 1978). The main reason for the shift was because of (UNCHS, 1993): i dilapidation of older buildings in Bombay i cheaper and better housing facilities in Navi Mumbai i better employment opportunities in Navi Mumbai i lesser commuter distances involved The second objective of the development plan was to bring maximum jobs consistent with the Gandhian principle of self-sufficiency (swavalambhan). CIDCO’s support of the Industrial Location Policy brought more jobs to Navi Mumbai. The sectors that had maximum growth in Navi Mumbai, were trade (39%), finance and services (27%) and manufacturing (18%) (BMRDA, 1992 in UNCHS, 1993). The wholesale agriculture produce
residential area increased from 213 hectares in 1981 to 531 hectares in 1991.

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

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

the extension of the railway lines. and housing occupancy rates are high. However. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. 1995. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. Hence. the development process has been slow. Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. Houses have been constructed for different sectors of society economically weaker section. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. Problems of design and development were identified. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. since 1990 there has been accelerated growth due to the commissioning of Nhava-Sheva port. lower income group. and improvements made in the next phase of design.

Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. Commuter services have become operational since May 1992. the city is no longer a plan on paper. Periodic socioeconomic and household surveys were used to determine the status of constructed environment.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen. Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970. CIDCO provides serviced sites for both government and private ownership. utilities.
Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 19 This design also strongly supported the need to use the government’s power and machinery to promote the uniform distribution of people and prevent ethnic enclaves. The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. . The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. Navi Mumbai is a modern. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. 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. A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. The research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting.
The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai.2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. India. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. . urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. Land ownership patterns. if government agencies or contractors build them.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. It is also a cultural manifestation. religion. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. people adapt to the physical environment around them. but four-dimensional. ethnicity. occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. 1968).1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. residents soon influence their urban environment. If the residents build the buildings themselves. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. Whatever the mode of construction. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. 1995). Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. transportation. Thus. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. then they reflect their lifestyles. Education. and bear characteristics of western influence. 1990). The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. 1987). The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. (New Bombay). technology. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. economic and physical environments. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. Simultaneously. language and housing character. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. 1968). 1990). 1991). 1973). Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. Where market forces work. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. and those of Mahatma Gandhi. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. income is one of the most important determinants. However.the urban pattern. 3.
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. The rural land may also have been . it is necessary to determine existing land use as a pre-condition to urban growth and form. In most studies this unit is the neighborhood which displays both physical and social aspects of the whole urban development. human beings. 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. In the study of Navi Mumbai. which may be universal or local. For example. A city replaces existing land use. Time and place may provide them with different characteristics making each city unique and dynamic. 1990). Although details may not be identical. The change of land use from rural to urban depends on the existing land use. every city has certain elements. Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space. a hill top site was the utilitarian response to any important building . and the ownership. 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. linguistics and ethnic background also influence urban patterns. Urban spatial patterns occur because of the repetitive spatial distribution of these elements. Traditional cities have used physical forms to interpret cultural and religious beliefs (Lozano. Thus urban social patterns are complex manifestations of underlying cultural values intermingled with global economic forces (McGee.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 21 Demographics. These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern. buildings and infrastructure. “The typical sector represents the formal characteristics found throughout the area and thus acquires some universality” (Lozano.3 Factors Influencing Urban Form Many factors influence the form of cities. Thus. society. They are nature. Traditional settlements were shaped by (Lozano. The patterns have similarities.a fort or a religious building. 1990). This representative sector is defined as the smallest area that exhibits the characteristics of the urban settlement. the node (township) and the sector (neighborhood) will be used as the study areas using aggregated household survey data. Doxiadis defines five elements in the study of human settlements. and natural and manmade obstacles. 1995). The built form is influenced by factors as (Alexander. 3. Some farmers may sell their land more easily than others may. 1971). The physical form is a variable of the social and built pattern of the city.
Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. 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. 1987. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. However. cities were very simple although they rarely served single purposes. Housing. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. 3. 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. others are global in scope. Planning controls influence development to a great extent. 1995). private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. 1979). 1990). they supported a range of activities. The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. However. craftsmen and merchants were born. Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. often because of a city wall. commercial buildings. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. personal preferences and many institutional constraints.

Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. These factors are (Alexander. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Soon. The external .

However. The social stratification is very deep and varied. Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. 1992). Ethnic characteristics refer to language. 1992). and in the case of India. Along with the caste exist occupational stratification.

Stratification implies a differentiation based on a set of criteria. 3. The characteristics caste. 1992b). The caste system varies from village to village and is a local phenomenon. The spirit of the caste system is determined by the attitudes of each caste to the other. 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. religion or occupation (Bougle. vertical and horizontal systems of stratification exist. 1974:8). differentiates itself into only hierarchical status containing inequality (Gupta.

In 1906 they formed the All-India Muslim League.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century. Buddhism. 1977). A Hindu revival period in the late nineteenth century to arouse enthusiasm for political action made the Muslims more insecure. The wake of Independence brought with it violence and terror in the Indo-Pakistan borders in Punjab and Bengal. After the decline of the Mughal Empire and the loss of political power to the British. absorbing other religious doctrines and never proselytizing. However. 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. degree of control over the language and relationship between the languages affect their social communication. While the Congress party represented the majority of the Indian population. During the Mughal rule (16th to 18th century). 3.

The framers of the Indian Constitution chose Hindi and English as the official languages of the government (King. the Muslim League represented only the Muslim population (Brass. it may be better to create a composite index of education. the Muslims were in power over most of India. Telugu. “In most folk-memory the Muslims of India had been ruler. 1997).5. Islam was a religion that came to India from outside and is culturally very different from Hinduism. which culminated in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. 1985:11). Hindus and Muslims drifted apart in the issue of independence from British rule. 1985). Jainism and Sikhism stemmed off from Hinduism and are very similar to Hinduism. The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion. Malayalam. Marathi. A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. The linguistic distribution is not only diverse but also very complex (Das Gupta. Kannada. The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service. At this time they felt the need for a political party of their own.5. Muslims became apprehensive of Hindu domination.
Language conflicts have also occurred in India. 1971). This rationale of composite nationalism influenced policies related to religion and language (Das Gupta. The better control the Tamil people had over English. When the ethnic groups occupy distinct neighborhoods. a demand for a national language also arose. Agitation and violence broke out in many non-Hindi states over this issue. 3. 1970). The Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was broken down by Hindu fundamentalists. 1988). there also been conflict between other regional languages. a synonym for official language and like state religion. However. In many places. The separatism movements seen all over India are all based on ethnicity and inter-caste rivalry (Bose. The partition of United India into India and Pakistan came with many problems. many political leaders advocated for the use of Hindi as a national and official language. Repercussions were felt all over the country.5. The inequality and economic differentiation cause conflict between the castes and classes.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 25 However. In some villages. Compromise was . had led them to better job opportunities. This issue can not only be seen at the time of partition in 1947 but also was seen during the recent communal violence in 1993. The South Indian state of Tamil Nadu was most vocal in the Anti-Hindi agitation. a state language with an unique status (Das Gupta. Pakistan officially declared itself as a Muslim state. Although a minority of Hindu leaders in India felt that India should be declared as a Hindu state. 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. 1970). 1992a). Although a majority of the rivalry has been for and against Hindi. they believed. The Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India declared the fourteen major languages listed as national language (Gumprez. a majority of the leaders preferred a composite nationalism. Traditionally these castes had either wealth or power. Writers in Hindi commonly refer to Hindi as Rashtrabasha (state language) which may signify language used by the state.5 Implications of the Sociocultural Factors The implications of caste and class are closely related to those of power and wealth (Dumont. and vice versa. The Tamilnad Students’ Anti-Hindi Agitation Council objected to both the removal of English as an official language and the declaration of Hindi as the sole official language. confusion has always existed about the status of Hindi as official or national language. as it was difficult to isolate only one family. In the early 1950s. ethnic conflicts are easily targeted towards these select neighborhoods. 1989). 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). This was not seen in more heterogeneous neighborhoods. Small Muslim enclaves within a majority Hindu neighborhood were targeted. This confusion in terminology is the basis for most language-related problems in Independent India. Hindu-Muslim riots broke out even in Bombay which has normally been a very peaceful city. Certain castes are dominant in a society. In a multilingual society there may be a plurality of national languages. all castes looked up to the farmer caste because they were important landowners and were wealthy (Srinivas. the Brahman priests had more power because it was believed that they were the representatives of the Creator on earth.
The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life. Judaism and Christianity found their way into India. However. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. The streets ran from north to south and from east to west. The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. Social assimilation and mobilization are a part of any evolving civilization. Buddhism. and which had as many padas as there were to be residential sectors was selected. 1986). Stratification of the society had to accommodate these religious factors. If it could not be a perfect square. The science of architecture and planning. . The town wall enclosed the mandala. This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form. In planning the town a vastupurusha mandala which was most auspicious. governed the alignment of roads. the creator. The square was used in the creation of the vastupurusha mandala. 1969). While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. violence sparked off by language issues has continued to occur in India. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. both from within and without the country. orientation of buildings and arrangement of internal rooms based on astrological and religious criteria (Volwahsen.

These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. C to 12th century AD).
1989). These are the theories which pertain to the built and social form of the city. but also on socioeconomic factors (Ramachandran. Kshatriyas in the eastern and southeastern part. 1980). Williamson and Mills. Diversification of professions due to industrialization in the post-independence era has resulted in further complexity (Becker. The characteristics of the social and built form of the city contribute to its pattern. 3. this has led to segregation and creation of enclaves within the city. pottery. Residential segregation is no longer based only on occupation and caste.were developed (Hall. This led to the development of commercial centers and zoning based on Western market principles. During this time. The three leading theories described below are based on the built form of the city. The morphological components include buildings used for trade warehouses. and wood formed niches in the urban pattern. jewelry. Residential areas associated with the commercial area were contiguous or within the commercial area (Hall.

A generalization of these patterns has been made. and the apparent timelessness and permanence of village life” (Hall. As the built form depends on the social characteristics portrayed by its residents. the Hindu tradition continued. India inherited a complex urban fabric. many researchers have pointed to the lack of penetration of urban values into the countryside. jali (carved screens) and projecting balconies (Kopardekara. 1978).7 Theories of Urban Social Patterns . It has been shown that rural values have penetrated the urban philosophy due to large-scale migration. especially seen in the port cities associated with the East India Company (Mills.the cantonment . Large migration of people from the rural area. In India where occupation and caste are synonyms. the Brahmans worked and lived in the northern district. counting houses. The urban segregation was based on function and occupation premises. Vaishyas in the southern part and Sudras in the western district. On the periphery of these urban centers. 1992). D. Generally. and insufficient infrastructure in cities has led to the creation of slums and shantytowns (Misra. 1980). There was further subdivisions within each district depending on the sub-caste. 1986). and Hindu elements of this period are not distinct from earlier ones. Many researchers have tried to fit Indian urban growth into a theoretical model. “In the case of India.) was the third phase of historical urban form. The residential character throughout this period was segregated. the same theories are being used to describe the social patterns as well. 1988). D.

Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn. 1929). others dynamic in nature. 3. 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 next zone had lower income housing.2). they moved to better housing districts (Burgess. some static. which had factories and slums. and especially in Chicago.7. It was partly based on Low income economic factors. accessibility to a single-centered city. 1990). Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city. 1979). 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. Thus. This also forced an outward expansion. Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded. This model was based on Burgess’ experience in the American mid-west cities. Figure 3. which were being taken over by the expanding CBD. With affluence. it is a descriptive framework to CBD analyze spatial organization of land use in a city Transition and its change over time. The CBD core had all major commercial. The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. The movement was towards the periphery. and studying how the city grew (Scargill. 1929). Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development. High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas. 1992). It also had older residential districts. and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess.2 Concentric Zone Theory Burgess’ research on the distributional pattern of Source: Burgess. free Middle income market. This was surrounded by a transition zone. These immigrants first found cheap housing in the inner city. 1992). 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.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. 1929). most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. 1979).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.
The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. 3. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. For example. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. 1990). This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked.3). 1979). S (Hoyt. 1992 . He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry.7. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. 1978). Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. 1992). It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3. and Golledge. This is not a generalized model.7. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. 1979). Hence. 1939 3. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill.3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. 1978). 1979). However. 1978).4). 1979). Neighborhoods for each income group are common. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. 1939).
social status and retirement (Scargill. 1979). and social change was expected to be reflected in studies which were repeated over a time period (Herbert and Thomas. 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. 1971). 1971). 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.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 30 3. ethnic status and family status (Timms. 1990). The outward mobility is related to different stages of life . This type of urbanization is also related to the housing market described by Hoyt (1939). it does not address the needs of a social environment. they move outwards. every city has some constraints.marriage. three indices were used. ethnic status used religion and social groups.

In the analysis of urban social patterns. 1990). but on cultural ones. Individualistic frameworks.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. This is . 1929). Critics say that neighborhood unit strongly emphasizes physical environment. parenthood. In Western cities the reasons for non-uniformity have been identified as socioeconomic status. The broad generalization of the social rank produced a sector model. 1992). The concept of neighborhood units became popular since the1920s in planned settlements (Perry. 1990). It is not only a physical design concept. has been under strong criticism (Hartshorn. The city was viewed as a part of society. are suitable modifications of the concept (Timms. The use of these three indices for analysis is a social area analysis. housing conditions and material possessions. neighborliness. which analyze the physical environment under consideration. value of home. These were social rank. community and social and civic responsibilities such as aesthetics. employment. family status and ethnic status. family status used the variables related to demographics and type of house. 3.1 Western Cities Many studies of the social and physical urban pattern have been done. security and identity. Analysis of individual cities shows that the pattern is not uniform and is characterized by residential segregation. housing choices may not be made on economic basis. but also an expression of socioeconomic and cultural values of the people. It is assumed that any planned city consists of neighborhood units. 1979). Family status in American cities shows a concentric distribution. however. However. It is only the most convenient one. For example. The main assumption here was that social rank is related to transportation links which influence residential location in a sectoral manner (Scargill. Hence. Social rank used the variables.

The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes.

the sociocultural factors are related to caste. . Status in Third World cities is based on family membership or socioeconomic class.9 Conclusion The urban social pattern is the complex manifestation of the underlying cultural values of the population within a particular built environment. Stratification causes social inequality in terms of wealth. this is not evident due to the existence of multi-generational families.

The historical evolution of cities has supported this stratification. or in search of opportunities in the city. Migration may also be restricted to the men of the family. skills and professions. The lifestyle factor in North American cities relates small nuclear families with higher education achievements and better employment opportunities. migration or ethnic group represent the ethnic factor. Traditional Indian cities have grown over a very long period of time. it is appropriate to use a social area analysis to delineate the urban social pattern. The residential neighborhoods of such cities are not as well defined as they are in the American cities.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 37 3. In such a case study. Here. In the case of Navi Mumbai. 1992). power and status. The growth of cities across the world has been studied. These are concentric zone theory. an effort was made to prevent this social stratification and use residential allotments to fulfill this objective. Social area analysis assumes that a few independent factors can explain the spatial patterning of a city. These characteristics stratify the society into vertical and horizontal systems. However. The households are generally large with a range of ages. Three leading western theories describing the urban social pattern of cities dominate the literature on urban social patterns (Hartshorn. In the design of Navi Mumbai. family status and ethnic status. In the American cities. These theories have been combined in a social area analysis to describe the social pattern based on a few social variables. The urban social pattern of these cities has been generalized. the residential neighborhoods have been designed using the neighborhood principle as those designed in America. the components derived from social area analysis were termed as socioeconomic status. religion and language. the researcher’s knowledge of the local environment is important to contextualize the pattern more appropriately. The components of the analysis of American cities are not entirely apparent in the Third World cities. The lifestyle depends on ethnicity and migration. In Third World cities.
religion and ethnic background. These factors are taken into consideration in social area analysis. economic status and ethnic background produce a certain spatial pattern in the city. Although these analyses have been more effective for studying North American cities. the urbanization component showed a concentric ring pattern. The general issue of social areas will be accomplished through social area analysis. 1971). 1955). Cairo and Helsinki showed some useful generalization. Hoyt. Thus. The issue of spatial distribution of different kinds of people in Navi Mumbai is of primary interest. This analysis classifies census tract data into three main constructs . These three factors also corresponded to the theoretical models proposed by Burgess. The analysis looks at the variables at once and at their respective locations in their distribution. mapping of social area analysis for a large sample of cities showed that socioeconomic status. The basic premise of social area analysis is that a city cannot be studied in isolation from the overall society (Shevky and Bell. However. The theories put forth by Burgess. 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. It is a . It was first put forth by Shevky and Williams (1949) in a study of Los Angeles. urbanization index. and Harris and Ullman will be the theoretical framework for the conceptualization of the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. there was considerable criticism about the choice of variables. Cities are complex entities that have many different functions performed by many different people. 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 study involves the categorization of a city based on social rank. economic. urbanization and segregation. A set of variables describing the social structure of the city can be used in the statistical analysis. studies in Calcutta. 1985). and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement.1 Social Area Analysis Social area analysis provides a broad framework for analyzing the social patterns of a city. 1978). The pattern of the city may be determined by statistical analysis or by discerning people’s mental images of the city. Better transportation systems increase mobility and lead to a greater sorting of population (Cadwallader. Generally the economic model showed a sectored pattern. 4. They were considered to be very narrow and not universally applicable.Chapter 4: Research Design Determining the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai is the primary research objective of this thesis. Social area analysis shows how family characteristics. The social area analysis may be done statistically by a factor analysis. the city was analyzed as a composite made up of three layers. The increase in industrialization creates an occupational status system (Timms. Hoyt and Harris and Ullman. These involve population. Under these conditions. and housing characteristics.socioeconomic status. Earlier. family status and ethnic status. immigration of rural population leads to segregation based on language. and ethnicity confirmed the validity of the analysis.

The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. my null hypothesis. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set.4 Data Collection The data required for the analysis can be obtained from census tracts of Navi Mumbai. In this case study of Navi Mumbai. Social area analysis based on western thinking can not be naively applied to the study of urban social patterns in India. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern. language) and vertical (occupation. Social structure in India is a result of cultural.2 Hypotheses As discussed in the literature review. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas.

The census data is not 100% reliable. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the . 4. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables.283 Nerul 16.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. All data is standardized.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data.338 Belapur 9. although variables are related. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. the units of analysis are not identical. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity.357 Survey Coverage 6656 4219 2125 2034 2282 2530 2506 544 % of total 24 26 23 22 25 19 18 23 The issues of validity and reliability arise in the use of census data for testing the hypothesis. Table 4. In this research. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.056 New Panvel 9.5. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above.378 Kopar-khairane 14. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. For a social area analysis. The second is a principal components analysis.161 Sanpada 2. the sector is the unit of analysis. An error of 5-8% is expected.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale. and compare it to other cities. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. cartographic mapping. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. This is a detailed stage of analysis. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables.007 Airoli 13. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation.
Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix. 1986). 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. Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean. Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. 4. it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. "To obtain the initial solution.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables. This is varimax rotation. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix.5. The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful. The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation. The rotation normally removes the negative loadings. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor. 1986). Generally variables with communalities less than 0.5. This approach to classification is very subjective. The second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. The first matrix is a simple data matrix. The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns. certain restrictions are imposed. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation. Corresponding communalities are also estimated. Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution. These restrictions are (1) there are k common components (2) underlying components are orthogonal to each other (3) the first component accounts for as much variance as possible. and results in a simpler pattern. Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. The . Characteristics of the urban social pattern can be revealed by considering the relationship within groups. 1978). the matrix of component scores is computed. In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated). 4.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. Finally. The elements of the eigenvectors that are used to compute the scores are called principal component loadings. and so on" (Kim and Mueller.
6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. as is the correlation coefficient. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. then connects the next most similar observations to these.0 to -1.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. 4. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. and so produces better dendrograms. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai.0. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. Distance coefficients are linked at low values. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. . Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. principal components analysis and cluster analysis. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. This method joins similar observations.5. 4. namely Vashi.

6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi. individual households have exercised their choice. and distinctly driven by an ethnic component at the sub-regional scale. although the government policy was to prevent the formation of ethnic enclaves. 5. In summary. 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. and a strong ethnic component is seen. . 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. the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise.

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 clustering indicates that some sectors are dissimilar from others.4 Potential Utility of the Research This research is a starting point for further studies in spatial patterns in Navi Mumbai. as the pattern is not uniform. 6. As Navi Mumbai has been constructed over the last 25 years. However. This is the multiple nuclei pattern of an ethnically driven spatial organization. Future research could involve: • • Delineating the pattern at intervals of time to study the change in pattern.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 6: Interpretation and Discussion 73 not uniform or heterogeneous. a pattern did emerge at this present stage. In conclusion. the policy has not been successful. The policy of the government to promote social heterogeneity influenced the type of residential construction 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. The principal components analysis shows that the cause of this spatial pattern is ethnicity. examining the policy instruments and policy goals. . the pattern is strongly influenced by factors as year of occupation of the house and reasons for moving. • • putting forth a new theory to generalize social pattern in planned cities in India. scaling down the study to stories of individual households to reach a more detailed level of interpretation. The aggregation of household data at the sector scale has limited this research from drawing out the finer details of the spatial pattern.
The culture of this race of people is very different from the Hindus. Housing would be allotted according to the preference of size of dwelling provided by applicants. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. and formulated a policy to support it. India. Three leading theories put forth were concentric zone theory. The review of secondary source material shows that urban social patterns have been studied across the world. The thesis addresses this social objective. Ethnic enclaves have always characterized traditional settlements in India. Bombay is the financial and economic capital of India. This particular case study was chosen for two reasons: Navi Mumbai is the first planned city that is not a capital city or industrial township. and provide an infrastructure which would promote ethnic heterogeneity. Planning policies in Navi Mumbai were strongly influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. The government had a very practical interest in avoiding ethnic confrontation. One of the social objectives in the planning of Navi Mumbai was to use the government machinery to diversify the spatial distribution of the population based on socioeconomic criteria. Areas dominated by Muslims are common in most cities in India. Navi Mumbai is still dependent on Bombay for much of its activity. Navi Mumbai is separated from the metropolis of Bombay only by the Thane Creek. The draft development plan of Navi Mumbai had very strong functional and social objectives. This was the first cause of separation in residential neighborhoods.Chapter 7: Conclusion The purpose of this thesis is to delineate the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. The government hoped that this would distribute people based on socioeconomics and break barriers based on religion and language. However. The Hindu laws and treatises specified residential locations for different castes. The segregation is attributed to the ethnic variables. It was hoped that a majority of the residential construction could be achieved though a policy of swavalambhan (self-reliance) and swatantrya (mutual selfhelp). The religious divide was used in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. Religious tensions have always existed in India. Partition and the first years of independence were. and the government had a specific social and political agenda. thus. raise the standard of living and reduce social inequalities. The other feature that is unique to India is the existence of many languages. 1991). religion and language. Households would normally place this preference based on how much they can pay. The important objectives of Navi Mumbai were: attract some of the immigrant population. strongly influenced by ethnic variables. Every effort was taken by the government to make Navi Mumbai an independent city and not a suburb or satellite city to Bombay. Traditional Indian cities have always had a strong ethnic component in their urban social pattern. Political and administrative boundaries in independent India were decided on linguistic lines. It was also influenced by the concept of the city as a melting pot (Engel. The Muslims came to India as invaders. These theories explain the urban social pattern . The government also decided to take up most of the initial building construction. caste. support an aggressive industrialization policy.
Succession and invasion based on social and economic status is the basic assumption of this theory. A variation in the data greater than 15% on each side of the mean is considered as unequal distribution. family status and ethnic status. a cluster analysis was done of the cases of the data set. The constructs of the social area analysis have been found to correspond to the three theories. The data at both scales is tabulated. In the case of Navi Mumbai this is important because of the policy to prevent segregation based on ethnic variables. Generally the socioeconomic model showed a sectored pattern. sector theory. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. Two religion variables and two language variables have been selected representing the ethnic construct. special emphasis has to be given to the ethnic components. 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. and histogram drawn of the variable selected from each data set. Analysis was done to map the urban social pattern of many cities across the world. the analysis allowed a more detailed interpretation. The multiple nuclei theory proposes that patterns could be arranged around several centers. The other variables selected were number of earning members. Four methods were used to analyze the data. The methodologies were techniques of multivariate analysis. These scales were the regional scale of the nodes (townships). If H0 is false. At the regional scale the analysis was done between the eight nodes to study their similarity. The second theory. the scale was smaller. Using the secondary source material as reference. Heterogeneity of the population is detected if these three constructs emerge from the analysis. is an analysis primarily of economic variables. In Navi Mumbai. Since. Mobility and immigration are the key variables of this theory. Wedge patterns representing income groups are the outcome of the theory. These are socioeconomic construct. The PCA reduces the dimensionality of the data into a more interpretable form. The second methodology is principal components analysis (PCA). The software package SPSS was used to do the analysis. and the sub-regional scale of the sectors (neighborhoods) of Vashi node. Social area analysis broadly classifies variables into three constructs. The methodology used was that of social area analysis. That would indicate that enclaves have not been caused by individual variables. grouping of variables is expected to be under the three constructs. The first methodology is a descriptive analysis. the family component showed a concentric ring pattern. income and education under the socioeconomic construct. Twenty-three sectors of Vashi were then analyzed. The similarity between the . and demographics. The variables selected are reduced into a smaller number of constructs. family size and type of house under family status. Analysis of data was done at two scales. socioeconomic. The hypothesis put forth in this study is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social segregation will occur.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 75 and its change over time. Next. The concentric zone theory relates the pattern of cities to population mobility. family status and ethnic status.
This is especially true of the ethnic variables. be explained using the theories of urban social patterns. The overall pattern of Navi Mumbai is one of multiple nuclei. The extreme value range in the mapping is important because it represents the dissimilarity in the distribution. thereby. A moral analysis of segregation has to be done in the context of the Indian culture. This can be attributed to two reasons: 1. Distribution was originally controlled through allotment of government-built houses based only on purchasing power (and indirectly socioeconomic status). 2. physical design and the institutional framework need to be examined closely to realize their full impact and to understand the results in their context. Even in the houses built by the government resale has taken place. family status variables concentric zones and the ethnicity variables a multiple nuclei arrangement. and clustering to the urban social patterns detailed in the secondary source material. How important is it to promote integration when self-sorting has been the natural process? • Can the Modernist synthesis seeking homogeneity in heterogeneity be used as a template for the Indian culture? • This leads to the question: is the objective valid? Does it have to be redefined or is the implementation strategy to be modified? At this stage it appears that a detailed analysis of the policy instrument and policy goals must be undertaken. The hypothesis was proved false. The principal components analysis shows that the variables are not grouping under the three constructs. The interpretation of the analysis also involves comparing the descriptive analysis.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 76 nodes and sectors is determined from this. The objective. Redistribution shows that people have aligned themselves based on ethnic variables. Control is maximum when the government owns all the houses. None of the variables selected display a uniform distribution. The distribution of these variables shows segregation. the socioeconomic variables also show separation. . however. In conclusion. The pattern could. This indicates that the urban social pattern is strongly influenced by ethnicity. The urban social pattern is best explained as one of multiple nuclei. However. The research brings to the fore many questions than answers. • 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. although the policy is noble in its aims and aspiration. The center is an ethnic enclave surrounded by socioeconomic variables. In Vashi only 64% of the houses were built and allotted by the government. All three new constructs are dominated by an ethnic variable. The spatial distribution of households is still characterized by traditional Indian values of ethnic segregation. The final stage was mapping of the clusters. The policy has not facilitated the distribution of the population based on socioeconomic criteria. graphically representing the analysis. The interpretation of the descriptive analysis shows that the distribution of most of the variables is not uniform. allotment procedure. they were mapped under expected and observed conditions. As the socioeconomic variables are expected to take a sectored pattern. it has not succeeded at this stage.
