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.

The pattern of Navi Mumbai will be studied at different hierarchical spatial levels: regional (node / township) and sub-regional (sector / neighborhood). The purpose of this thesis is to delineate and interpret the social pattern of Navi Mumbai.1 Research Problem Statement The overall objective of this thesis is to determine what common patterns.2 Significance of Research A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between their constituent elements at a certain period of time. A policy emphasizing a uniform distribution of the population is the ideological orientation of the government. The literature review shows that a specific study of Navi Mumbai has not been previously documented. These include the ethnic composition of the city. This research aspires to contribute to basic research in social geography. and political events may influence the physical design and pattern of a city. Physical and economic landscapes. Therefore. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. if any. race. Urban patterns occur because of repetition of these elements. exist in the urban social pattern of planned towns in India. The urban social pattern is one of the many aspects of the urban form. planning regulations. land use and ownership. Various processes influence the social pattern of the city. economic and social processes within it (Vance. Traditional Indian cities have evolved over the centuries. street patterns. The basic research here involves the search for an urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. Why is such a study significant? The urban form of the city influences behavioral. An interpretation of the emerging social pattern reveals something of the social character of the city. The pattern suggests not only the outcome of . This research determines how the present social pattern relates to various theoretical frameworks. and their social pattern is characterized by residential segregation based on ethnic. and the housing market. the study of human settlements has an encompassing view of all the activities it supports.

The housing has to be heavily subsidized to make it affordable. Each of these cuadras was a self-contained unit with primary schools. CIDCO decided to use a maximum surcharge of 15% on housing for highest income group to compensate for a maximum subsidy of 45% to the lowest income group (CIDCO. In India the square was used as the basic unit in the layout of traditional cities. 1961). In Navi Mumbai. 1961).6 Design Principles of Navi Mumbai The conceptual design of Navi Mumbai was developed at the height of Modernism. Le Corbusier explained "the plan is based on the main features of the 7V rule (Appendix B) determining an essential function: the creation of sectors. The square had a significance in Hinduism as this perfect geometric shape was thought to be . A sector centrally located within each node took on commercial activities. The higher income groups would pay a surcharge for housing. V4 roads were designed for shopping and commercial activity. Many of these principles of Modernism were used in the planning of Navi Mumbai. it was proposed to use cross subsidies. The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. 40 in 1970. each family could own only developed land.

Gandhi would have urged: If nature chooses not to accommodate us. There would be no rich or poor nodes (CIDCO. Each node is self-contained for 100. All houses in a neighborhood were occupied by a particular caste. main streets formed perfect rectangles dividing the city into separate residential areas based on caste. 1973). 1973). Many cities still reflect this street pattern. 1973).

The Gandhian principle of self-help would be used to implement this agenda. Navi Mumbai’s founders saw the construction of large amounts of new housing as an opportunity to break down demographic divisions and to enhance social equity. CIDCO would sell the plot at a highly subsidized rate and with a twenty-year repayment period. electricity and sanitation (CIDCO. 1973). 1973) .

"In each node it is proposed that accommodation be made available for the entire range of income groups expected in the city. These are discussed further in the next chapter. 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. 1973).

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

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

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

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

Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning. However. . establishment of more industries and construction of more houses. the extension of the railway lines. utilities. Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. The absence of a port and railway links slowed growth. Designing. middle-income group and high-income groups.6 Land Use of Navi Mumbai Source: CIDCO. since 1990 there has been accelerated growth due to the commissioning of Nhava-Sheva port. housing requirements. and improvements made in the next phase of design. CIDCO provides serviced sites for both government and private ownership. Many attributes of these two design principles are not necessarily harmonious. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. Houses have been constructed for different sectors of society economically weaker section. 2. development and implementation of ideas were done in an incremental manner. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970. Commuter services have become operational since May 1992. the development process has been slow. Hence. lower income group. Problems of design and development were identified. recreation and commercial needs. and housing occupancy rates are high. 1995. Periodic socioeconomic and household surveys were used to determine the status of constructed environment. the city is no longer a plan on paper.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 18 NEW BOMBAY BOMBAY Arabian Sea Residential Woodlands Industrial Port Institutional Trucking Wholesale Fishing Wetlands Figure 2. but a living and working reality.

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. . 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. A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 19 This design also strongly supported the need to use the government’s power and machinery to promote the uniform distribution of people and prevent ethnic enclaves. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined.

Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. Simultaneously. religion. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household.

This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. economic and physical environments. Thus. principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. but four-dimensional. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. 1973). A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox.the urban pattern. (New Bombay). These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional.Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 3. transportation. changing and modifying it to suit their way of life (Lozano. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. 1968). 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. Whatever the mode of construction. technology. 1990). 1990). communication and socioeconomic relationships influence urban patterns. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. 3.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. language and housing character. if government agencies or contractors build them. However. 1995). and those of Mahatma Gandhi. If the residents build the buildings themselves. Socioeconomic factors have a very important contribution to the pattern. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. people adapt to the physical environment around them. residents soon influence their urban environment. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. 1987). 1991). and bear characteristics of western influence. then they reflect their lifestyles. 1968). Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. ethnicity. India. The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social.

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

The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. The external . Housing. For thousands of years. The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. 1987. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. surplus food production was achieved. and Thomas. within. craftsmen and merchants were born. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. Various economic. Pedestrian movement limited the size of the city. 1990). Instead. others are global in scope. Soon. 1983). other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. Priests. a city contained social distinctions in terms of class. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. However. 1992a). Planning controls influence development to a great extent. race and religion (Vance. 3. However. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill. While some processes are culture-specific.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. 1986): i ethnic composition of the city i migration i religion i economic considerations i race i political and historical events The housing market also influences the social pattern of the city. they supported a range of activities. 1995). 1979). 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. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. cities were very simple although they rarely served single purposes. Kosambi. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. commercial buildings.

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. 3. The population may be stratified based on income. Along with the caste exist occupational stratification. 1992b). In India. The criteria for the differentiation can normally be translated into money or wealth. Ethnic characteristics refer to language. this popular caste hierarchy is not clear throughout the Indian subcontinent (Srinivas. sometimes reinforced by common work roles.

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

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

The multi-dimensional society was soon complicated by the emergence of other religions. Despite the Act.1 Circle and Swastika depended on the natural features of the site. . These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. 3. and which had as many padas as there were to be residential sectors was selected.1). Sikhism were born in India while Islam. Social assimilation and mobilization are a part of any evolving civilization. The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life. However. 1986). the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. padas.

In the initial stages it was in the form of caste differentiation as prescribed by the Hindu/ Vedic texts. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. 1974). While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. 1969). governed the alignment of roads. Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. Judaism and Christianity found their way into India. Jainism. religion and language is the issue of group identity which is the cause of most ethnic conflicts. a perfect rectangle was accepted. Stratification of the society had to accommodate these religious factors.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. the creator. If it could not be a perfect square. violence sparked off by language issues has continued to occur in India. The science of architecture and planning. Hinduism. which was the terrestrial representation of the cosmic universe inhabited by Brahma. The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B. orientation of buildings and arrangement of internal rooms based on astrological and religious criteria (Volwahsen. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form. which contributes many elements to the urban form. Buddhism. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language. Vastushastra. This does not imply that social assimilation does not occur. The streets ran from north to south and from east to west. Related to castes. The square was used in the creation of the vastupurusha mandala.

especially seen in the port cities associated with the East India Company (Mills. D. In India where occupation and caste are synonyms. but also on socioeconomic factors (Ramachandran. metalware.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 27 The residential districts were divided among the four castes. many researchers have pointed to the lack of penetration of urban values into the countryside. Residential areas associated with the commercial area were contiguous or within the commercial area (Hall. and the apparent timelessness and permanence of village life” (Hall. Diversification of professions due to industrialization in the post-independence era has resulted in further complexity (Becker. The residential character throughout this period was segregated. the Hindu tradition continued. “In the case of India. 1988). 1989). Large migration of people from the rural area. this has led to segregation and creation of enclaves within the city. The urban segregation was based on function and occupation premises. During this time. Vaishyas in the southern part and Sudras in the western district. Kshatriyas in the eastern and southeastern part. pottery. Areas for selling of specific goods – cloth. the Brahmans worked and lived in the northern district. 1978).

The morphological components include buildings used for trade warehouses. and wood formed niches in the urban pattern. 3. military establishments . 1980). 1986). The three leading theories described below are based on the built form of the city. counting houses. 1980). This led to the development of commercial centers and zoning based on Western market principles. As the built form depends on the social characteristics portrayed by its residents. These are the theories which pertain to the built and social form of the city. jali (carved screens) and projecting balconies (Kopardekara.were developed (Hall. At the time of independence in 1947. 1992). The Islamic elements included the mosque and domestic architecture which emphasized the purdah through enclosed courtyards.) was the third phase of historical urban form. 1980). It has been shown that rural values have penetrated the urban philosophy due to large-scale migration. The colonial influence (17th to early 20th century A.the cantonment . Residential segregation is no longer based only on occupation and caste. jewelry. and the south-west monsoon. Many researchers have tried to fit Indian urban growth into a theoretical model. On the periphery of these urban centers. Generally. D. Characteristics from medieval times are Islamic in nature (14th to 17th centuries A. the same theories are being used to describe the social patterns as well. India inherited a complex urban fabric. and insufficient infrastructure in cities has led to the creation of slums and shantytowns (Misra. A generalization of these patterns has been made. The Brahmans and Kshatriyas lived in the parts of the town which were climatically more comfortable sheltered from the hot sun. There was further subdivisions within each district depending on the sub-caste.7 Theories of Urban Social Patterns . The characteristics of the social and built form of the city contribute to its pattern.

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

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

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

The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3. 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.6) (Herbert and Thomas.7 Asian Ports pattern showed concentric zones for land use. and surrounds old Delhi (Figure 3. substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city. 1986). The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza. ethnicity and literacy. 1986). A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder. traditional commercial areas and modern commercial areas. The center of the city was the plaza. 1986). A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. 1990). and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. But.

Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. in general. In the 18th and 19th centuries.

Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. yet complementary. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. Soon.

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

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

This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. education.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas. religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship. 4. caste) dimensions (Hall. religion. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. 1980). mapping of social patterns in many cities across the world show that the socioeconomic status. and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes.4 Data Collection The data required for the analysis can be obtained from census tracts of Navi Mumbai. concentric zone theory and multiple nuclei theory. This hypothesis is put forth on the assumption that the social agenda put forth in the Development Plan has been successfully implemented. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories. In this case study of Navi Mumbai. 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. is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social patterning will occur.

109 Kalamboli 9. The census data is not 100% reliable.007 Airoli 13.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the . The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. This is a detailed stage of analysis.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. the units of analysis are not identical. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above.283 Nerul 16. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. is census data. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. data covering a large area is required. For a social area analysis. and compare it to other cities.5. All data is standardized. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. Table 4. The only data source that provides this information.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels. The second is a principal components analysis. although variables are related.378 Kopar-khairane 14. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. the sector is the unit of analysis. In this research. An error of 5-8% is expected.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. 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 principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables. cartographic mapping. 4. 4. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used.338 Belapur 9. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. Finally.161 Sanpada 2.056 New Panvel 9.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale.

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

The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. 4. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. The SPSS program was also used to perform a principal component analysis and a cluster analysis on this data set. Both the analyses were done at a regional and sub-regional scale. and so produces better dendrograms. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other.0 to -1.0. 4. . The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. as is the correlation coefficient.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. This method joins similar observations.5. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales. namely Vashi. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram. then connects the next most similar observations to these. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai. principal components analysis and cluster analysis.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. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. Distance coefficients are linked at low values. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation.

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. At the sub-regional scale as there is a smaller percentage of CIDCO-built houses. . individual households have exercised their choice. the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise. and distinctly driven by an ethnic component at the sub-regional scale.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 64 households speaking Malayalam. 5. although the government policy was to prevent the formation of ethnic enclaves. PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together. and a strong ethnic component is seen. Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi. In summary.

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

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

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

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

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