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.

Neighborhood planning in the West was a concept put forth by Clarence Perry. let us accommodate nature!" (Gandhi in Engel. Under his leadership.4). The Bombay Municipal Regional Planning Board put forth the broad conceptual regional plan of Navi Mumbai. The functionality of the city is based on the principle of neighborhood design as seen all over the Western world. Even in the planning of Mohenjadaro (7th century B. Navi Mumbai consists of thirteen townships (or nodes). Parab. This is the vision that is the traditional Indian design inspiration for Navi Mumbai. 1984). Each node is self-contained for 100.).

The streams Source: CIDCO.7 Social Agenda in the Planning of Navi Mumbai Considerations of social equity were very important in all aspects of development in a country. This was partly because of the scale and complexity of the project. the plan had a very important political component.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 11 BOMBAY Airoli Ghansoli Kopar-Khairane Kalamboli Vashi Sanpada on walking distances to the mass transit stop. 1997). would be strongly supported.

Private industries would not invest in this particular region unless they were assured of workers and so on. The primary concerns were related . For example. which had been independent for only 20 years. a migration of population would not occur. For industrial growth large finances were required. As financial and economic considerations depended on the government in office. It depended very heavily on external factors. Water treated from industrial and sewage waste would be used to develop green areas (Parab. 2. One of the ideas of putting the environmental city into Dronagiri practice was the creation of woodland corridors (Parab.4 Nodes of Navi Mumbai recreation and timber. 1973.
The planners of Navi Mumbai thought this was a fortuitous occasion to provide social justice to the millions of migrants and pavement dwellers of Bombay (CIDCO. using bamboo instead of steel reinforcements and setting up of local retail shops where residents would be able to buy inexpensive building materials for building their homes (swadeshi) (CIDCO.

Housing for the middle income and high income groups would be in the form of CIDCO housing. The residents could design and implement their construction in any way they chose (swatantrya). The Constitution of India also spells out the need for the government machinery to facilitate social. For them. The Draft Development Plan spelled out "there is a tendency in India that induces people to live in like groups. it was proposed that housing should be constructed so that this income group could afford it. It recommended construction using cheaper concrete. The sites-and-services plots would have services such as roads. water. The plan took into account the fact that one-third of the housing in New Bombay would be sites-and-services plots (CIDCO. The design of a completely new city was a very good opportunity to implement these national concerns. I). Thus. In planned towns and cities this should be avoided to a great extent by allocating housing in neighborhoods to members of different communities. For the lower income group. The Gandhian principle of self-help would be used to implement this agenda. CIDCO would sell the plot at a highly subsidized rate and with a twenty-year repayment period. 1973). Individual families would then have to build their own homes (swavalamban). 1973). electricity and sanitation (CIDCO. economic and political equity.shall inform all the institutions of the national life (Article 38). caste.

Provision of schools and colleges was a priority in the planning of Navi Mumbai. one high school for 12. This further contributed to the creation of ethnic enclaves within the settlement. water supply and sanitation. diagnostic and investigation services. exploited women and leprosyaffected persons would be developed in Navi Mumbai to accommodate the growing population (CIDCO. A large hospital for intensive care and for teaching and research purposes would be set up (CIDCO. The planning was for a comprehensive coverage by taking the services to households. planners cited the segregation of Bombay as an example. The community health care center would primary health care.

It should contain its own jobs. 1973). These were the education facilities to be provided by the government. 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. Mobile health care units would operate from this community health center. and law and order problems of the community (Dwivedi and Mehrotra.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 13 To justify this consideration. The Greater Bombay region had some of the best social welfare programs in India. schools and colleges and making health education a part of classroom education.

The medical center would provide secondary health service. medical care. 1995). 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. It would have out-patient department. This led to the development of ethnic enclaves. "In each node it is proposed that accommodation be made available for the entire range of income groups expected in the city. Other private institutions would be encouraged also. Institutions for juvenile delinquents. recreation and afforestation projects (CIDCO. 1973). The nodes (townships) were designed to provide one primary school per 5000 population. 1973: 17): "CIDCO is anxious that the new city develop its own identity as quickly as possible. 1973). shopping.500 population and one college for 50. Establishment of ethnic enclaves has led to a number of problems in India. The Development Plan says (CIDCO. It is expected that this accommodation of residents from various social and income groups within the same physical area will not only make for a healthier environment.

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

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.

Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. 1995. but a living and working reality. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. However. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics.
A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. Very little analysis has been done on the outcome of CIDCO's social agenda to ensure diffusion of ethnic groups and the urban social pattern that emerged. The research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. Navi Mumbai is a modern. .Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 19 This design also strongly supported the need to use the government’s power and machinery to promote the uniform distribution of people and prevent ethnic enclaves. The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined.

The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. 1968). Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. Whatever the mode of construction. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household.

The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. However.

India. 3. It is also a cultural manifestation. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. If the residents build the buildings themselves. but four-dimensional. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. 1973). 1990).2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. (New Bombay). Land ownership patterns. occupation and values of housing influence the spatial character. language and housing character. The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. . 1968). economic and physical environments.

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

These features contributed to a particular urban and social pattern. Urban patterns represent a continuity of time and space.

However. 3. and Thomas. commercial buildings. within. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. For thousands of years. Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. 1990). cities were very simple although they rarely served single purposes. Domestication of animals and cultivation of land created villages.4 The Evolution of the Urban Form of Indian Cities The traditional theory of urban origin is generally attributed to Childe (Herbert.

Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. These factors are (Alexander.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. 1979). private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class.

Certain customs lower or raise the status of the caste. 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. However. 1992). Certain occupations such as butchery and cobblery lower the rank. 1992b).

Jainism and Sikhism stemmed off from Hinduism and are very similar to Hinduism. A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. India is the birthplace of two major religions –Hinduism and Buddhism – and two minor religions . which culminated in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion. In 1906 they formed the All-India Muslim League. The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service. After the decline of the Mughal Empire and the loss of political power to the British. 3.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century. 1974).

A Hindu revival period in the late nineteenth century to arouse enthusiasm for political action made the Muslims more insecure. the Muslims were in power over most of India. the Muslim League represented only the Muslim population (Brass. 1985). While the Congress party represented the majority of the Indian population. The major languages of India are Hindi. An overwhelming view of Hindu-Muslim relations in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is that Hindus advanced due to their enthusiasm to take up western education and government employment (Kaura.

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

In planning the town a vastupurusha mandala which was most auspicious. Hinduism. religion and language is the issue of group identity which is the cause of most ethnic conflicts. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. However. The streets ran from north to south and from east to west. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. cyclical and swastika (Figure 3.

The multi-dimensional society was soon complicated by the emergence of other religions. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. which contributes many elements to the urban form. 1986). These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. Sikhism were born in India while Islam. 3. 1969). 1974). padas. The mandala could be divided into smaller squares. Stratification of the society had to accommodate these religious factors.

This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. C to 12th century AD). The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life. Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization.1 Circle and Swastika depended on the natural features of the site. Vastushastra.

1980). As the built form depends on the social characteristics portrayed by its residents. Large migration of people from the rural area. and insufficient infrastructure in cities has led to the creation of slums and shantytowns (Misra. The colonial influence (17th to early 20th century A. Generally. D. 1980). Vaishyas in the southern part and Sudras in the western district. especially seen in the port cities associated with the East India Company (Mills.) was the third phase of historical urban form. Williamson and Mills.7 Theories of Urban Social Patterns . many researchers have pointed to the lack of penetration of urban values into the countryside. jewelry.the cantonment . and wood formed niches in the urban pattern. 1986).). The morphological components include buildings used for trade warehouses. In India where occupation and caste are synonyms. The three leading theories described below are based on the built form of the city. 1989). The Islamic elements included the mosque and domestic architecture which emphasized the purdah through enclosed courtyards. On the periphery of these urban centers. the Brahmans worked and lived in the northern district. military establishments . but also on socioeconomic factors (Ramachandran. At the time of independence in 1947. the same theories are being used to describe the social patterns as well. pottery. Residential areas associated with the commercial area were contiguous or within the commercial area (Hall. jali (carved screens) and projecting balconies (Kopardekara. These are the theories which pertain to the built and social form of the city. Many researchers have tried to fit Indian urban growth into a theoretical model. 1978). Residential segregation is no longer based only on occupation and caste. metalware. India inherited a complex urban fabric. It has been shown that rural values have penetrated the urban philosophy due to large-scale migration. and the south-west monsoon. the Hindu tradition continued. this has led to segregation and creation of enclaves within the city.

During this time. and the apparent timelessness and permanence of village life” (Hall. The Brahmans and Kshatriyas lived in the parts of the town which were climatically more comfortable sheltered from the hot sun. 1992). Areas for selling of specific goods – cloth. There was further subdivisions within each district depending on the sub-caste.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 27 The residential districts were divided among the four castes. 3. and Hindu elements of this period are not distinct from earlier ones. 1988). D. 1980). The characteristics of the social and built form of the city contribute to its pattern. 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. Diversification of professions due to industrialization in the post-independence era has resulted in further complexity (Becker.were developed (Hall. “In the case of India. The urban segregation was based on function and occupation premises.
others dynamic in nature. 1992). 3. and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess. they moved to better housing districts (Burgess. 1990). 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. It also had older residential districts. With affluence. In the early 1920s. Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development. accessibility to a single-centered city. This also forced an outward expansion. Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city. some static. The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn. This was surrounded by a transition zone.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. it is a descriptive framework to CBD analyze spatial organization of land use in a city Transition and its change over time. 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. most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. Thus. 1929). 1929). The CBD core had all major commercial. and studying how the city grew (Scargill. Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded.1 Concentric Zone Theory This theory put forth by Burgess in 1925 related population mobility and societal organization to the physical expansion of the city (Burgess. High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas. Figure 3.2). The public transport system had also improved significantly and allowed the middle-class to . 1979). 1979). which had factories and slums. which were being taken over by the expanding CBD. 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. 1992). The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. and especially in Chicago. free Middle income market. These immigrants first found cheap housing in the inner city.2 Concentric Zone Theory Burgess’ research on the distributional pattern of Source: Burgess. This model was based on Burgess’ experience in the American mid-west cities. The movement was towards the periphery. political and social activities. 1929).7. The next zone had lower income housing. It was partly based on Low income economic factors.
It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. 1979). 1992 . 1939 3. For example. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3.4). The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. 1979). This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. 1992). empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill.3). 1990).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. However. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. 3. 1939).7. 1979). This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. This is not a generalized model. The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3. 1978). and Golledge. industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill.7. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3. This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. 1978). Hence. Neighborhoods for each income group are common. 1979).3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt. 1978). S (Hoyt.
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. but on cultural ones. Social rank used the variables.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 30 3. The use of these three indices for analysis is a social area analysis. It serves as the building block to construct the whole town. It is assumed that any planned city consists of neighborhood units. education. In the built environment this corresponds to ethnic neighborhoods (Timms. are suitable modifications of the concept (Timms.marriage. These were social rank. which analyze the physical environment under consideration.1 Western Cities Many studies of the social and physical urban pattern have been done. it does not address the needs of a social environment. has been under strong criticism (Hartshorn. A neighborhood unit is not the only model or universally appropriate unit of analysis. 1992). For example. parenthood. security and identity. The broad generalization of the social rank produced a sector model. neighborliness. family status used the variables related to demographics and type of house. As a family’s needs for space increase. 1971). 1990). This type of urbanization is also related to the housing market described by Hoyt (1939). The non-uniform pattern is consistent over many cities because similar households exert similar housing choices. Ethnicity causes the social phenomena of segregation. The concept of neighborhood units became popular since the1920s in planned settlements (Perry. however. Critics say that neighborhood unit strongly emphasizes physical environment. employment. value of home. ethnic status used religion and social groups. A neighborhood is the basis for formally organized residential space. the neighborhood unit is used as the unit of analysis in the study of human settlements (Herbert and Thomas. family status and ethnic status. but also an expression of socioeconomic and cultural values of the people. 1971). and social change was expected to be reflected in studies which were repeated over a time period (Herbert and Thomas. safety. every city has some constraints. three indices were used. In the analysis of urban social patterns. housing conditions and material possessions. 1990). 1979). Analysis of individual cities shows that the pattern is not uniform and is characterized by residential segregation. This is . 1979). The city was viewed as a part of society. Hence. It is not only a physical design concept. The main assumption here was that social rank is related to transportation links which influence residential location in a sectoral manner (Scargill. 1971). The values are also related to family. This concept. 1990). However. 3. 1929). Individualistic frameworks. It is only the most convenient one. The data source was census tracts. The outward mobility is related to different stages of life . social status and retirement (Scargill. housing choices may not be made on economic basis. Family status in American cities shows a concentric distribution. ethnic status and family status (Timms. community and social and civic responsibilities such as aesthetics. they move outwards.8. In Western cities the reasons for non-uniformity have been identified as socioeconomic status.

Australia (Timms. 1992.5 Urban Social Patterns Source: Knox. traditional and modern design elements juxtaposed in seemingly dichotomous ways. A study of Baltimore (Knox.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 31 predominant in cities where migration is high. 1995) shows that the four important factors in the social pattern are underclass. Public open spaces are generally found only . Winnipeg. Cities in the Third World are frequently dual environments. Canada (Herbert and Thomas. however. 1971). Hartshorn.8. youth/migrants and black poverty. 1990) showed similar results. does not always emerge as an independent component (Scargill. Traditional places are typically more dense with narrow streets and housing spaces around central courtyards. 1979). The changing pattern of family cycle reflects concentric zones while that of social rank is in sectors.
Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities. A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. which is adjacent to. are very complex and have evolved over a very long time. 1986). The model shows that the indigenous elite were closely associated with the commercial area. 1974) found that social status.6) (Herbert and Thomas. and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. The nuclei are original village. Thus. The migrants and poor did not live in the core of the city. family ties. The center of the city was the plaza. as opposed to conglomerations. 1986). the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city. Even single cities. 1986). but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges. and surrounds old Delhi (Figure 3. land use.7). . substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. Around the plaza was the important buildings including a church. The more Figure 3. The modern place is more spacious. traditional commercial areas and modern commercial areas. ethnicity and literacy. 1986). The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3. A study of Colombo (Herbert and de Silva. But. Western ideas of suburbanization and formed their Source: Drakakis-Smith own neighborhoods (Lowder. 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. 1980. The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. 1986 Literacy and ethnic patterns emerged in a sectoral form. 1990). A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder.7 Asian Ports pattern showed concentric zones for land use.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi. 1975). An analysis of Calcutta showed a pattern based on land use. along riverbanks). The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes.

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

The reasons for migration are also varied – they may be migrating as a result of natural calamities. However. These characteristics stratify the society into vertical and horizontal systems. 1992). In the American cities. . religion and language. In the design of Navi Mumbai. These are concentric zone theory. In the case of India. or in search of opportunities in the city. family status and ethnic status. The historical evolution of cities has supported this stratification.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 37 3. Status in Third World cities is based on family membership or socioeconomic class. it is appropriate to use a social area analysis to delineate the urban social pattern. The households are generally large with a range of ages. an effort was made to prevent this social stratification and use residential allotments to fulfill this objective. In the case of Navi Mumbai. Social area analysis assumes that a few independent factors can explain the spatial patterning of a city. The lifestyle factor in North American cities relates small nuclear families with higher education achievements and better employment opportunities. skills and professions. the residential neighborhoods have been designed using the neighborhood principle as those designed in America. this is not evident due to the existence of multi-generational families. the sociocultural factors are related to caste. The lifestyle depends on ethnicity and migration. the researcher’s knowledge of the local environment is important to contextualize the pattern more appropriately. The urban social pattern of these cities has been generalized.9 Conclusion The urban social pattern is the complex manifestation of the underlying cultural values of the population within a particular built environment. Migration may also be restricted to the men of the family. A market economy strongly influences the lifestyle of the citizens of Navi Mumbai. the components derived from social area analysis were termed as socioeconomic status. The residential neighborhoods of such cities are not as well defined as they are in the American cities. Traditional Indian cities have grown over a very long period of time. Male dominance. Land-use is also similar in that it is predominantly single-use zoning. this social area analysis must take into consideration the indigenous factors. Here. Three leading western theories describing the urban social pattern of cities dominate the literature on urban social patterns (Hartshorn. The growth of cities across the world has been studied. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. migration or ethnic group represent the ethnic factor. These theories have been combined in a social area analysis to describe the social pattern based on a few social variables. In Third World cities. In such a case study. power and status. class. The components of the analysis of American cities are not entirely apparent in the Third World cities. Stratification causes social inequality in terms of wealth.
religion and ethnic background. A set of variables describing the social structure of the city can be used in the statistical analysis. 4. 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. family status and ethnic status. Generally the economic model showed a sectored pattern. economic status and ethnic background produce a certain spatial pattern in the city. there was considerable criticism about the choice of variables. The social area analysis may be done statistically by a factor analysis. Better transportation systems increase mobility and lead to a greater sorting of population (Cadwallader. The theories put forth by Burgess. 1978). It is a . The increase in industrialization creates an occupational status system (Timms. Hoyt and Harris and Ullman. Hoyt. They were considered to be very narrow and not universally applicable. and housing characteristics. The family as a unit becomes weaker. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. Thus. Cairo and Helsinki showed some useful generalization. economic. the urbanization component showed a concentric ring pattern. urbanization and segregation. It was first put forth by Shevky and Williams (1949) in a study of Los Angeles. immigration of rural population leads to segregation based on language. Social area analysis shows how family characteristics. Although these analyses have been more effective for studying North American cities. the city was analyzed as a composite made up of three layers.socioeconomic status. Earlier. The pattern of the city may be determined by statistical analysis or by discerning people’s mental images of the city. mapping of social area analysis for a large sample of cities showed that socioeconomic status. urbanization index. These involve population. This analysis classifies census tract data into three main constructs . Under these conditions. The aim is to identify key combinations of different measures that provide an adequate basis on which to differentiate the sub-areas from one another (King and Golledge. These three factors also corresponded to the theoretical models proposed by Burgess. 1955). 1971). However.1 Social Area Analysis Social area analysis provides a broad framework for analyzing the social patterns of a city. studies in Calcutta. The basic premise of social area analysis is that a city cannot be studied in isolation from the overall society (Shevky and Bell. These factors are taken into consideration in social area analysis.Chapter 4: Research Design Determining the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai is the primary research objective of this thesis. The study involves the categorization of a city based on social rank. and Harris and Ullman will be the theoretical framework for the conceptualization of the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. The general issue of social areas will be accomplished through social area analysis. Cities are complex entities that have many different functions performed by many different people. and ethnicity confirmed the validity of the analysis. 1985). The analysis looks at the variables at once and at their respective locations in their distribution. The issue of spatial distribution of different kinds of people in Navi Mumbai is of primary interest.

If H0 is false. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. In this case study of Navi Mumbai. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented.4 Data Collection The data required for the analysis can be obtained from census tracts of Navi Mumbai. education. The data available is based on a . The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. mapping of social patterns in many cities across the world show that the socioeconomic status. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern. concentric zone theory and multiple nuclei theory. religion. This database provides aggregated information about each node (township). 4.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas.

An error of 5-8% is expected. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. For a social area analysis.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale. cartographic mapping. although variables are related.

Finally. The second is a principal components analysis. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. and compare it to other cities.283 Nerul 16. 4. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels. the units of analysis are not identical.338 Belapur 9.056 New Panvel 9. 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. The only data source that provides this information.161 Sanpada 2. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables.378 Kopar-khairane 14. All data is standardized. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. This is a detailed stage of analysis. In this research. data covering a large area is required. 4.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data.5.007 Airoli 13.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. The census data is not 100% reliable. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. is census data. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used.109 Kalamboli 9. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the . These are techniques in multivariate analysis. At the regional scale the data is tabulated.
This approach to classification is very subjective. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. 4. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation. then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous.5. In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution. 1986). Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean. 4. This is varimax rotation. The . The second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables. The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components. The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation. Generally variables with communalities less than 0.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. Characteristics of the urban social pattern can be revealed by considering the relationship within groups. and results in a simpler pattern. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix. The rotation normally removes the negative loadings. The elements of the eigenvectors that are used to compute the scores are called principal component loadings. certain restrictions are imposed. "To obtain the initial solution. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables. it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. 1978). Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. Corresponding communalities are also estimated. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. The first matrix is a simple data matrix. These restrictions are (1) there are k common components (2) underlying components are orthogonal to each other (3) the first component accounts for as much variance as possible. Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. and so on" (Kim and Mueller. 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.5.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated). The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns. Finally. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix. the matrix of component scores is computed. 1986). Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices.
This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance.0. principal components analysis and cluster analysis. This method joins similar observations. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai.0 to -1. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale.5. Distance coefficients are linked at low values.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. and so produces better dendrograms. 4. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. then connects the next most similar observations to these. 4. . A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. as is the correlation coefficient. namely Vashi. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS.

The first component is one which has a high socioeconomic component dominated by a Muslim population. it represents a majority of the population. this component also describes the general population.

All the components are equally important and separated only by ethnic variables. The third component is the economically active age group dominated by the Hindu population.58.
In summary.6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise. . and a strong ethnic component is seen.

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

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

Although the four maps above (Figure 6.15, Figure 6.16, Figure 6.17, Figure 6.18) show that there is a different colored sector within a group of one color, the multiple nuclei pattern is not very obvious. However, looking at the descriptive analysis, principal components analysis, cluster analysis and the mapping collectively, the multiple nuclei pattern can be inferred. The descriptive analysis brought out the fact that the spatial pattern is
The principal components analysis shows that the cause of this spatial pattern is ethnicity.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 6: Interpretation and Discussion 73 not uniform or heterogeneous. 6. In conclusion.4 Potential Utility of the Research This research is a starting point for further studies in spatial patterns in Navi Mumbai. scaling down the study to stories of individual households to reach a more detailed level of interpretation. As Navi Mumbai has been constructed over the last 25 years. The mapping of individual variables and factor scores verifies that within a fairly homogeneous group of sectors there exists a dissimilar sector. This is the multiple nuclei pattern of an ethnically driven spatial organization. the pattern is strongly influenced by factors as year of occupation of the house and reasons for moving. examining the policy instruments and policy goals. Future research could involve: • • Delineating the pattern at intervals of time to study the change in pattern. The policy of the government to promote social heterogeneity influenced the type of residential construction in Navi Mumbai. . The aggregation of household data at the sector scale has limited this research from drawing out the finer details of the spatial pattern. The clustering indicates that some sectors are dissimilar from others. as the pattern is not uniform. • • putting forth a new theory to generalize social pattern in planned cities in India. However. a pattern did emerge at this present stage. the policy has not been successful.
The culture of this race of people is very different from the Hindus. Households would normally place this preference based on how much they can pay. This was the first cause of separation in residential neighborhoods. The segregation is attributed to the ethnic variables. Navi Mumbai is separated from the metropolis of Bombay only by the Thane Creek. The government had a very practical interest in avoiding ethnic confrontation. The draft development plan of Navi Mumbai had very strong functional and social objectives. Housing would be allotted according to the preference of size of dwelling provided by applicants. and provide an infrastructure which would promote ethnic heterogeneity. The Hindu laws and treatises specified residential locations for different castes. support an aggressive industrialization policy. raise the standard of living and reduce social inequalities. Religious tensions have always existed in India. The religious divide was used in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. The thesis addresses this social objective. Traditional Indian cities have always had a strong ethnic component in their urban social pattern. religion and language. The important objectives of Navi Mumbai were: attract some of the immigrant population. and formulated a policy to support it. The Muslims came to India as invaders. Three leading theories put forth were concentric zone theory. 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. 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. Every effort was taken by the government to make Navi Mumbai an independent city and not a suburb or satellite city to Bombay. Ethnic enclaves have always characterized traditional settlements in India. caste. Partition and the first years of independence were. The government hoped that this would distribute people based on socioeconomics and break barriers based on religion and language. It was hoped that a majority of the residential construction could be achieved though a policy of swavalambhan (self-reliance) and swatantrya (mutual selfhelp). 1991). Planning policies in Navi Mumbai were strongly influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. sector theory and multiple nuclei theory. The review of secondary source material shows that urban social patterns have been studied across the world. India. The government also decided to take up most of the initial building construction. These theories explain the urban social pattern . strongly influenced by ethnic variables. Political and administrative boundaries in independent India were decided on linguistic lines. Areas dominated by Muslims are common in most cities in India. Navi Mumbai is still dependent on Bombay for much of its activity. It was also influenced by the concept of the city as a melting pot (Engel. However. thus. The other feature that is unique to India is the existence of many languages. and the government had a specific social and political agenda. Bombay is the financial and economic capital of India.Chapter 7: Conclusion The purpose of this thesis is to delineate the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai.
The other variables selected were number of earning members. Two religion variables and two language variables have been selected representing the ethnic construct. Wedge patterns representing income groups are the outcome of the theory. family status and ethnic status. The methodology used was that of social area analysis. The first methodology is a descriptive analysis. The concentric zone theory relates the pattern of cities to population mobility. income and education under the socioeconomic construct.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 75 and its change over time. The constructs of the social area analysis have been found to correspond to the three theories. The variables selected under each construct were drawn out of experience of the researchers. grouping of variables is expected to be under the three constructs. Four methods were used to analyze the data. family size and type of house under family status. The data at both scales is tabulated. The second methodology is principal components analysis (PCA). Social area analysis broadly classifies variables into three constructs. Since. the family component showed a concentric ring pattern. and demographics. The second theory. 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. The similarity between the . Analysis was done to map the urban social pattern of many cities across the world. family status and ethnic status. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. The multiple nuclei theory proposes that patterns could be arranged around several centers. and histogram drawn of the variable selected from each data set. In the case of Navi Mumbai this is important because of the policy to prevent segregation based on ethnic variables. is an analysis primarily of economic variables. In Navi Mumbai. If H0 is false. The methodologies were techniques of multivariate analysis. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. Next. Generally the socioeconomic model showed a sectored pattern. Twenty-three sectors of Vashi were then analyzed. the analysis allowed a more detailed interpretation. These scales were the regional scale of the nodes (townships). and the sub-regional scale of the sectors (neighborhoods) of Vashi node. The PCA reduces the dimensionality of the data into a more interpretable form. Analysis of data was done at two scales. The variables selected are reduced into a smaller number of constructs. a cluster analysis was done of the cases of the data set. These are socioeconomic construct. Heterogeneity of the population is detected if these three constructs emerge from the analysis. Succession and invasion based on social and economic status is the basic assumption of this theory. Using the secondary source material as reference. the scale was smaller. Mobility and immigration are the key variables of this theory. That would indicate that enclaves have not been caused by individual variables. The hypothesis put forth in this study is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social segregation will occur. and ethnic segregation showed a multiple nuclei arrangement. sector theory. The software package SPSS was used to do the analysis. At the regional scale the analysis was done between the eight nodes to study their similarity.
The urban social pattern is best explained as one of multiple nuclei. The principal components analysis shows that the variables are not grouping under the three constructs. family status variables concentric zones and the ethnicity variables a multiple nuclei arrangement. although the policy is noble in its aims and aspiration. 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 interpretation of the descriptive analysis shows that the distribution of most of the variables is not uniform. The research brings to the fore many questions than answers. and clustering to the urban social patterns detailed in the secondary source material. The policy has not facilitated the distribution of the population based on socioeconomic criteria. The final stage was mapping of the clusters. The center is an ethnic enclave surrounded by socioeconomic variables. In Vashi only 64% of the houses were built and allotted by the government. This indicates that the urban social pattern is strongly influenced by ethnicity. Even in the houses built by the government resale has taken place. Distribution was originally controlled through allotment of government-built houses based only on purchasing power (and indirectly socioeconomic status). however. A moral analysis of segregation has to be done in the context of the Indian culture. the socioeconomic variables also show separation. As the socioeconomic variables are expected to take a sectored pattern. The extreme value range in the mapping is important because it represents the dissimilarity in the distribution. • 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 pattern could. The objective. Control is maximum when the government owns all the houses. Redistribution shows that people have aligned themselves based on ethnic variables. graphically representing the analysis. they were mapped under expected and observed conditions. The hypothesis was proved false. The distribution of these variables shows segregation. All three new constructs are dominated by an ethnic variable.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 7: Conclusion 76 nodes and sectors is determined from this. This is especially true of the ethnic variables. be explained using the theories of urban social patterns. However. None of the variables selected display a uniform distribution. it has not succeeded at this stage. . The overall pattern of Navi Mumbai is one of multiple nuclei. This can be attributed to two reasons: 1. In conclusion. 2. allotment procedure. The spatial distribution of households is still characterized by traditional Indian values of ethnic segregation. thereby. How important is it to promote integration when self-sorting has been the natural process? • Can the Modernist synthesis seeking homogeneity in heterogeneity be used as a template for the Indian culture? • This leads to the question: is the objective valid? Does it have to be redefined or is the implementation strategy to be modified? At this stage it appears that a detailed analysis of the policy instrument and policy goals must be undertaken. The interpretation of the analysis also involves comparing the descriptive analysis.
