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.

Urbanization and subsequent suburbanization of Bombay have created a linear city such that the central business district (CBD) and residential areas have become further and further apart (Figure 2. 1973). The first settlement was established in the southern most tip of the island. This range of activities led to crowding at an BOMBAY NAVI unprecedented scale. The harbor was strengthened. This planned decentralization was the outcome of efforts by the government to make Bombay more “sustainable” (Bombay Metropolitan Regional Planning Board. 1995).

Commuter distances had become larger because of increased suburbanization with no change in location of the CBD. the Gadgil Committee strongly recommended a multi-nuclear growth using the creation of a new town across the harbor. lack of housing and infrastructure and high land values were the major problems identified. In 1865. the Bombay Municipal Regional Planning Board set up two committees to study the development of Bombay. and 24 percent of the one and two room tenements were over crowded. V. the Bombay Improvement Trust was created. They recommended: i the creation of a new town on the mainland across the harbor i develop the suburbs of Bombay further Bombay had reached a level of unmanageable growth by the 1960s. 1986) The Bombay Metropolitan Regional Planning Board in its report wrote Bombay the Beautiful is no more beautiful. the Bombay Municipal Corporation was established. This enclosed the Town and Island of Bombay. Modak influenced the development of Greater Bombay for the next two decades (Dwivedi and Mehrotra. which would encompass the Fort area as well as the suburbs of Bombay. the Port of Bombay.

The large migrant influx contributed to the overcrowding (Table 2. However. Land use zoning and the concept of floor space index were incorporated for the first time. . In the 1960s. The development acts of 1954 and 1964 emphasized the need to relocate industrial activity from the island to the mainland (CIDCO. in 1896. These formal government bodies were the beginning of a conscientious effort to regulate the growth of Bombay (Banerjee-Guha. 1973) Population increase.000 houses. 1995). various planning committees were formed to develop a regional plan for Bombay.

Greater Bombay came into existence only after the Bombay High Court Act of 1945. Commercial and residential areas were mixed because many merchants carried on business from home (Tindall.1 Population Density of Bombay 1881 1891 1901 1911 1921 1931 1961 1971 Area in acres 14247 14281 14342 14575 15066 15480 16751 16720 Persons / Acre 54 56 54 67 78 75 165 184 (Various Census Reports for Bombay in Kosambi. 1995). and.

Each township had several sectors. it was proposed to use cross subsidies.

In Navi Mumbai. CIDCO decided to build a large part of the housing as public housing. 550 per square meter and the cost of development of land was Rs. The total land of Navi Mumbai was divided into thirteen townships. In India the square was used as the basic unit in the layout of traditional cities. 1961). m. 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 sector is the container of family life" (Le Corbusier. Many of the sectors were residential in character. 1973). Capacity to pay for housing divided by cost of construction shows a very small (or no) house could be owned by most families. Children were able to walk to school on the V7 through green belts (Sarin. houses or larger (CIDCO. The housing has to be heavily subsidized to make it affordable. These were: i decentralization by the design of self-sufficient townships(nodes). 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. Many of these principles of Modernism were used in the planning of Navi Mumbai.6 Design Principles of Navi Mumbai The conceptual design of Navi Mumbai was developed at the height of Modernism. No fast traffic was allowed in the sectors. commercial. At the same time. 1973) The table shows the ability of each income group to contribute towards owned accommodation. The neighborhoods were self-sufficient and had their grocery store and primary school. The cuadra had a detailed zoning plan with single-use zoning on all lots. residential and institutional activity. each family could own only developed land. which would subsidize housing for the lower income groups. The sector planning of Modernism is very similar to the grid planning of traditional Indian cities. A sector centrally located within each node took on commercial activities. The Government of India’s policy on publicly financed housing has been to build 21 sq. land would be leased under a 30-year repayment system to private cooperative housing schemes and private owners. The sector was based on the Spanish cuadra of 110 to 100 meters. Each of these cuadras was a self-contained unit with primary schools. The square had a significance in Hinduism as this perfect geometric shape was thought to be . hierarchy of roads and important buildings of a gargantuan scale (Fry. 1961). 40 in 1970.

This would have a great drain on the financial resources of the government. 2. Some of the highlights of the design elements of this plan were sector planning. community centers and residential areas. V4 roads were designed for shopping and commercial activity.

This is significantly different from the single-use planning of Modernism. Each neighborhood unit was within a one square mile radius. The functionality of the city is based on the principle of neighborhood design as seen all over the Western world. In the case of Navi Mumbai. This is the vision that is the traditional Indian design inspiration for Navi Mumbai. 1973).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 10 the abode of the gods (Henn. the main philosophical design principles of Navi Mumbai are based on Gandhian ideology (Parab.

As the residential classification was based on the caste. each neighborhood was known as a sector (CIDCO.000 people. This principle of neighborhood planning and its derivative from Modernism was used in Navi Mumbai. Neighborhood planning in the West was a concept put forth by Clarence Perry.4).

This would also ensure reduction of soil erosion and the development of woodlands for both Figure 2. which ensured their re-election. 1997).

Holding ponds would be used for pisciculture and recreation. The design concept of Navi Mumbai was very idealistic. which would be used in the dry seasons. There was also a high degree of uncertainty attached to some of the policies and physical developments. This was partly because of the scale and complexity of the project. a migration of population would not occur. the plan had a very important political component. For example. Politicians use the creation of jobs and better living environments as a common strategy for getting votes. Hence.4 Nodes of Navi Mumbai recreation and timber. 2.

Housing would be built for the various income groups. place of birth or any of them (Article 15." (CIDCO. Individual families would then have to build their own homes (swavalamban). The residents could design and implement their construction in any way they chose (swatantrya). 1973) .

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).

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

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

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

Periodic socioeconomic and household surveys were used to determine the status of constructed environment. The poor transportation links between Bombay and Navi Mumbai has been the main contributing factor. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. Hence.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen. housing requirements. the development process has been slow. Houses have been constructed for different sectors of society economically weaker section.

The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. Navi Mumbai is a modern. The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control. The research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. Very little analysis has been done on the outcome of CIDCO's social agenda to ensure diffusion of ethnic groups and the urban social pattern that emerged. A heavy-handed implementation strategy of this objective was done by taking complete control of the residential allotment. .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. This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting.

The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai.the urban pattern. they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. 1973). 3. Whatever the mode of construction. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. ethnicity.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. economic and physical environments. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. Urban social pattern is the pattern formed by the interaction of various social variables such as household characteristics. and those of Mahatma Gandhi. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. 1990). The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. This literature review will first trace the human settlements in India. If the residents build the buildings themselves. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. and bear characteristics of western influence. These design ideas seem to have a strong influence of Modernism (CIDCO. Navi Mumbai is one of the first cities in India built for the common citizen. It is also a cultural manifestation. but four-dimensional. urban form is not merely the architectural form of the city (Lozano. India. Interaction of these elements form a pattern . Simultaneously. .

The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. transportation. Education.2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. Intricacies in relationships have increased the complexity of the urban form over time. Thus.

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

Planning controls influence development to a great extent. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. However. race and religion (Vance. Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. surplus food production was achieved. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. 1979). Owner-occupier.4 The Evolution of the Urban Form of Indian Cities The traditional theory of urban origin is generally attributed to Childe (Herbert. 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. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. Kosambi. 1990). often because of a city wall. A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. Priests. social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. The external . For thousands of years.

People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world. While some processes are culture-specific. Master plans and regional plans provide long-range strategies for development. 1995). This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. 1990).

The spirit of the caste system is determined by the attitudes of each caste to the other. The criteria for the differentiation can normally be translated into money or wealth. Kshatriya. marriage and death ceremonies distinguish one caste from another.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 23 manifestation of the separation and hierarchy through particular attributes of the castes brings about social stratification of the urban social pattern (Marriott. Stratification implies a differentiation based on a set of criteria. 1992a). The population may be stratified based on income. Along with the caste exist occupational stratification. 1992). 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. arms.

Class systems by contrast define the rank of their members according to their individual attributes and behavior". theoretically. this popular caste hierarchy is not clear throughout the Indian subcontinent (Srinivas. 1992b). all elements can not be arranged vertically. Repulsion between castes forced isolation and the creation of distinct residential enclaves (Bougle. 1974:8). Thus. 1992b:14). Ethnic characteristics refer to language. religious and ethnic diversity of the country (Gupta. linguistic stratification and religious stratification. differentiates itself into only hierarchical status containing inequality (Gupta. Vaishya and Sudra are said to have come from the mouth. The differences may also be placed in a horizontal system (example: language. religion). 3. Vegetarian castes occupy higher positions. The caste system varies from village to village and is a local phenomenon.2 Class "Class refers to a system of stratification which is economic in character" (Gupta.5. Various combinations of the hierarchy have come about due to regional differentiation in certain attributes of social living. a hierarchy from Brahman to Sudra has been interpreted (Bougle. In India. The dominant caste legend is the Purushasukta legend whereby the Brahman. 1992).1 Caste Castes are the hierarchical divisions of people based on professional and family membership. these single criterion hierarchies can be misleading as they depend on cutoff points related to individual analysis (Gupta.

3. 1970). 1997). Islam was a religion that came to India from outside and is culturally very different from Hinduism.3 Religion Religion and language have provided the motive power for nationalism in India (Brass. There are many religions in India. 1985). which culminated in the partition of united India into India and Pakistan. “In most folk-memory the Muslims of India had been ruler. 1977).

The League demanded for a separate electorate and for more employment in public service. 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.4 Language A systematic inventory of Indian languages began in the mid-eighteenth century. At this time they felt the need for a political party of their own. the Muslim League represented only the Muslim population (Brass. degree of control over the language and relationship between the languages affect their social communication. it may be better to create a composite index of education. 1974).Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 24 linked to other attributes. Anger and frustration broke out as violence as Hindus moved from Pakistan into India and Muslims moved from India to Pakistan (Hodson. The linguistic distribution is not only diverse but also very complex (Das Gupta. Bengali.

After the decline of the Mughal Empire and the loss of political power to the British. Gujarati. not subjects” (Hodson. However. 1985). The census of India 1951 (immediately after Independence) recorded a total of 179 languages and 544 dialects in India. Telugu. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. The framers of the Indian Constitution chose Hindi and English as the official languages of the government (King. Tamil. A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. The characteristics of the population regarding bilinguals. Hindi was chosen because it was the language spoken by the largest percent of the population while was a result of the British legacy. In 1906 they formed the All-India Muslim League.5. A Hindu revival period in the late nineteenth century to arouse enthusiasm for political action made the Muslims more insecure. The major languages of India are Hindi. Urdu and Punjabi. Hindus and Muslims drifted apart in the issue of independence from British rule. During the Mughal rule (16th to 18th century). The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion. 1974). occupation. While the Congress party represented the majority of the Indian population. Jainism and Sikhism stemmed off from Hinduism and are very similar to Hinduism. Malayalam. Buddhism. India is the birthplace of two major religions –Hinduism and Buddhism – and two minor religions . Kannada.

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

Judaism and Christianity found their way into India. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country.1).

The ethnic segregation and conflict has existed from the beginning of the Indian Civilization. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form. Social assimilation and mobilization are a part of any evolving civilization. The caste system over the next ten to fifteen centuries became deeply rooted in the Hindu population and became a part of life. . The final shape of the town Figure 3. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. However. 3. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. which was the terrestrial representation of the cosmic universe inhabited by Brahma. Jainism. 1986).6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases.

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

These immigrants first found cheap housing in the inner city. it is a descriptive framework to CBD analyze spatial organization of land use in a city Transition and its change over time. 1929). The model made many assumptions such as uniform land surface. 1929). 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. This was surrounded by a transition zone. Diversification in employment opportunities gave rise to the growth of mixed land use development. and successive zones had higher income residences (Burgess.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. Mobility and migrant influx were though of as the main cause of the social pattern (Hartshorn. accessibility to a single-centered city. 3. This also forced an outward expansion. 1929). they moved to better housing districts (Burgess. This model was based on Burgess’ experience in the American mid-west cities.7.2). High income heterogeneous population and a commercialindustrial base (Herbert and Thomas.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 28 Various spatial theories of the social pattern of cities have been advanced. With affluence. free Middle income market. Burgess was interested in determining a pattern for the social structure of the city. The movement was towards the periphery. 1979). some static. 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. and especially in Chicago. political and social activities. The next zone had lower income housing. The same city may express different models at different time periods (Scargill. Families moved out into the next zone when their zone was invaded. Thus. others dynamic in nature. The CBD core had all major commercial. 1992). Figure 3. 1990). In the early 1920s. which were being taken over by the expanding CBD. The public transport system had also improved significantly and allowed the middle-class to . It was partly based on Low income economic factors. most American cities in the mid-west absorbed many immigrant groups from Europe. 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. and studying how the city grew (Scargill. 1979). 1992).

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

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

Ethnicity. Cities in the Third World are frequently dual environments.

Thus. The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. The modern place is more spacious. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city. Around the plaza was the important buildings including a church. The social Figure 3. 1986). The more Figure 3. The center of the city was the plaza. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. 1974) found that social status. The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza. 1975). A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder. Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities. The nuclei are original village. . and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. along riverbanks). but formed shantytowns in the peri-urban fringes and in unserviced areas (under bridges.7). 1980. family ties. A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi. 1986).

But. land use. ethnicity and literacy. The morphological model of Asian port cities shows a multiple nucleus (Figure 3.6) (Herbert and Thomas.

The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. 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. traditional commercial areas and modern commercial areas.

3 Indian Cities In cities of India. The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. 1980): i Residences have not yet come to serve the symbolic function they do in the Western world. industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. the farther away from the center. and especially to construct a structural model.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 33 Here. and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. 3. In the cities where new professions were created. A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city. languages and customs. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function.8. new definitions had to be made. Soon. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. The nature of traditional social status and the interdependence and spatial interpretation of diverse. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. Santiago and Chile Source: Lowder. For example. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. 1977). A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. i Symbolic functionalism is performed by religion and caste and buttressed by regional affiliations. The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes.8). 1986 residential colonies moved from the center of the city to the urban periphery which were selected for their better geographic. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. In Lima. caste. in general. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. In the 18th and 19th centuries. Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. many large cities became crowded. in rural areas. yet complementary. It has been found that Indian cities defy social modeling. has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara. farming is done only by the Sudra caste. The social ties are horizontal and vertical. "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own . 1986). The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3.8 Latin American Cities America. spatial segregation based on ethnicity. climatic and aesthetic factors. the poorer the household (Cornelius. 1975).

Weinstein (1974) made an attempt to produce a conceptual model for the social segregation of an Indian city. higher migration and equal male to female ratio. The centroid of the system represents the optimum location for accessibility to all three functions. i Metropolitan cities (Bombay. Calcutta and Madras. low migration and equal male to female ratio. These three dimensions were i socioeconomic dimension symbolized by the bazaar i political dimension represented by an administrative symbol i prestige dimension derived from the religious function of a temple. commercial or administrative areas. 1968).

These three dimensions would form concentric zones (Figure 3. low literacy. 1980:35). such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. and that the temple acted as the most meaningful focus for the spatial distribution of social characteristics. i North Indian cities had low female employment rates.9). Industrial towns like Jamshedpur were planned around their industrial core.9 Pattern of Indian Cities Source: Weinstein. colonial cities. i The modern planned cities (Jamshedpur. it was found that multiple nuclei were present. Certain areas are known for their residents speaking a particular language only. Their influence and interplay causes residential segregation. .

Although the neighborhoods that result are not corporate groups in the sense in which they are defined. real case studies did not prove this theory. 1974 evolutionary pattern. had western style CBDs. He postulated three dimensions as being important contributors to residential segregation.

Census data from 1881. The presence of many religions. The existence of multiple physical urban patterns caused by the presence of indigenous settlements.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 35 Such broad conclusions are results of regional analyses. The social patterns were also strongly influenced by the age of the city. These examples show that the urban social pattern of Indian cities is very complex due to the influence of a variety of factors. religious polarity. castes and classes produces a more heterogeneous pattern. 1901. commercialism. 1831 and 1961 was used to determine the evolution and change of the social pattern. languages.

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

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

The variables are tabulated below: Table 4. education. mapping of social patterns in many cities across the world show that the socioeconomic status. family status and ethnic status correspond respectively to the sector theory. Variables that arise from such cultural determinants need to be used in the factor analysis. The sectors (neighborhoods) are identical to census block tracts. concentric zone theory and multiple nuclei theory. religion. H0. Social structure in India is a result of cultural. In this case study of Navi Mumbai. This provides a spatial hierarchical data set. then the pattern will be explained using the existing theories.1 Constructs and Variables Construct Variable Socioeconomic status Profession Number of earning members Income Education Family status Demographics Women at home Family size Dwelling size Type of house Year of occupation Ethnic status Religion Language 4. is: no significant difference in key variables is expected and hence no social patterning will occur.3 Operationalization Certain variables will be used to operationalize the social area analysis to obtain the urban social pattern.4 Data Collection The data required for the analysis can be obtained from census tracts 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. caste) dimensions (Hall. and each sector (neighborhood) of the nodes. 1980). language) and vertical (occupation. religious and historic development with both horizontal (kinship. 1990).Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 39 device that seeks interrelationships among the set of input variables (Herbert and Thomas.

1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale. data covering a large area is required. These are techniques in multivariate analysis. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. Table 4. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used.007 Airoli 13.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27.378 Kopar-khairane 14. cartographic mapping. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above. In this research.056 New Panvel 9. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated. The census data is not 100% reliable.283 Nerul 16.5. 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 descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.161 Sanpada 2.338 Belapur 9. The only data source that provides this information. This is a detailed stage of analysis. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. although variables are related.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. Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. All data is standardized.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. The second is a principal components analysis. the units of analysis are not identical. For a social area analysis. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the .109 Kalamboli 9. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. 4. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data. is census data. the sector is the unit of analysis. 4. and compare it to other cities. Finally. An error of 5-8% is expected. At the regional scale the data is tabulated.

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

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

The methodological reason for selecting these eight nodes out of the total of thirteen is because data was available for only these eight nodes. 5. Nerul. it was selected out of the eight nodes. The variables needed to explain the constructs as well as possible. All the variables belonged to closed sets.1) with the actual variable from the data set. The criteria used to select the variables were based on the expectations of the hypothesis. • sub-regional scale (sectors of a node) The study areas at the regional level of analysis are those of the nodes of Navi Mumbai including Vashi.

Unskilled persons are construction laborers and housemaids. Professional workers in teaching and medical institutions are 7% of the workforce. Profession: Good employment opportunities are offered by the manufacturing industries of Navi Mumbai. They form 17% of the workforce. This means that the distribution is homogeneous. contractors and consultants. This is most representative of the entire population. The mean is 74 with a very low standard deviation of 5.0 60.

Cluster 2 shows a dominance of households speaking Marathi. the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise. individual households have exercised their choice. 5. The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. In summary. At the sub-regional scale as there is a smaller percentage of CIDCO-built houses. PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together. and distinctly driven by an ethnic component at the sub-regional scale.6 Conclusion The analysis of the data shows that the urban social pattern appears to be non-uniform at the regional scale. although the government policy was to prevent the formation of ethnic enclaves.

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

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

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

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

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