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 study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. this paper will augment existing knowledge about social configurations of planned urban development in Asian regions. A policy emphasizing a uniform distribution of the population is the ideological orientation of the government. An interpretation of the emerging social pattern reveals something of the social character of the city. This research aspires to contribute to basic research in social geography. This research determines how the present social pattern relates to various theoretical frameworks. land use and ownership. migration. and the housing market.Chapter 1: Introduction 1.

Therefore. Physical and economic landscapes. The purpose of this thesis is to delineate and interpret the social pattern of Navi Mumbai. and political events may influence the physical design and pattern of a city. Various processes influence the social pattern of the city. Different characteristics are drawn from the factors influencing the physical design and cultural aspect of the city. land use pattern and ethnic classifications will be used as key variables to study the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. Socioeconomic factors. These include the ethnic composition of the city. and their social pattern is characterized by residential segregation based on ethnic. The pattern of Navi Mumbai will be studied at different hierarchical spatial levels: regional (node / township) and sub-regional (sector / neighborhood). religious and linguistic classes. The pattern suggests not only the outcome of . The literature review shows that a specific study of Navi Mumbai has not been previously documented. Urban patterns occur because of repetition of these elements. The urban form of a city is primarily the result of the characteristics of its physical and social design as well as socioeconomic and political forces.1 Research Problem Statement The overall objective of this thesis is to determine what common patterns. Thus. 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. housing characteristics. economic and social processes within it (Vance. 1990). middle class population in India. It is a synthesis of the spatial relationships of various elements. if any. 1.

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. 1973). The sector was based on the Spanish cuadra of 110 to 100 meters.6 Design Principles of Navi Mumbai The conceptual design of Navi Mumbai was developed at the height of Modernism. The average cost of construction was Rs. The total land of Navi Mumbai was divided into thirteen townships. 1961). Some of the highlights of the design elements of this plan were sector planning. 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. community centers and residential areas. 40 in 1970. m. land would be leased under a 30-year repayment system to private cooperative housing schemes and private owners.

CIDCO decided to build a large part of the housing as public housing. This would have a great drain on the financial resources of the government. Le Corbusier had played an important role in the design of Chandigarh in Punjab in the mid1950s (Le Corbusier.

These are discussed further in the next chapter. but will also ensure a uniform standard of social and physical infrastructure and see that no one class of residents is better served than another" (CIDCO 1973: 17-18). This led to the development of ethnic enclaves. merchants from neighboring districts migrated into Bombay and constructed homes inside and outside the Fort walls. These were the education facilities to be provided by the government. The nodes (townships) were designed to provide one primary school per 5000 population. Health planning was undertaken as public health projects. This further contributed to the creation of ethnic enclaves within the settlement. The Governor of Bombay also encouraged this development because it reinforced the traditional panchayati (selfgovernment) system of administration by which the council of elders settled religious. Mobile health care units would operate from this community health center. and law and order problems of the community (Dwivedi and Mehrotra. 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.

Objectives . a strong institutional framework was required for its success. With the creation of these other agencies. the identity of Navi Mumbai is subtler. 1991). the Gadgil Committee Report (1965) had recommended the setting up of a New Town Development Authority (NTDA).

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

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.

Social aspects of city planning were given importance with special attention given to considerations of employment opportunities. establishment of more industries and construction of more houses. Though the Navi Mumbai project was begun in 1970. utilities. housing requirements. Growth in other development sectors of Bombay has also had an adverse effect on Navi Mumbai’s growth. CIDCO provides serviced sites for both government and private ownership. the Gandhian principles supported cultural heterogeneity and mixed use zoning. However.10 Conclusion The Draft Development Plan of Navi Mumbai described many broad outlines for the development of a city for the common citizen. The design principles described in the Draft Development Plan were based on the philosophical reasoning of Mahatma Gandhi and the functionalistic approach of Modernism. . the city is no longer a plan on paper. but a living and working reality. Problems of design and development were identified. and improvements made in the next phase of design. While Modernism called for single-use zoning and a pattern based on socioeconomic characteristics. The absence of a port and railway links slowed growth. since 1990 there has been accelerated growth due to the commissioning of Nhava-Sheva port.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 2: The Research Setting 18 NEW BOMBAY BOMBAY Arabian Sea Residential Woodlands Industrial Port Institutional Trucking Wholesale Fishing Wetlands Figure 2.

This also implies that the urban social pattern was predetermined.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 research setting under consideration is the result of the hybridization of Indian and Western ideas. The aim of this research is to examine the present urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. Navi Mumbai is a modern. 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. planned city within the context of a specific historic and cultural setting. . The success of this strategy depended on maintaining this control.

The final outcome of a morphological study is the formulation of a theory which connects facts to form hypotheses. 3. Thus. Where market forces work. economic and physical environments.

A holistic approach to the study of settlements involves understanding the interrelationships between its elements within the temporal context. Most cities in the Third World and India have been indigenous in origin and organic in growth. The study of the physical form and structure of cities is the study of urban morphology. The pattern of spatial distribution is recognizable in most contemporary cities (Alexander. ethnicity.1 Introduction A human settlement is an establishment created by people for their inhabitation. and bear characteristics of western influence. technology. 1987). 1991). 1968). they are more generic and may not represent the lifestyles of every household. Human settlements contain people and societies in a physical environment consisting of natural and man-made elements (Doxiadis. 1968). Interaction of these elements form a pattern . principles and existing theories for improving the design of cities (Doxiadis. The urban pattern is a result of the relationships between people and their social. . if government agencies or contractors build them. The human-environment relationship is a two-way process termed as the socio-spatial dialectic (Knox. Education. 1973).2 Urban Form and Urban Pattern Every human settlement consists of certain elements. residents soon influence their urban environment. because it changes continuously in a temporal dimension. 1990). Simultaneously. It is a city designed with the design principles of the time. Buildings and spaces are created by people and quite often characterize them (Kostof. Such a human settlement is not just threedimensional. India. income is one of the most important determinants. However. Many of these cities have been under colonial rule. The aim of the thesis is to examine the urban social pattern of Navi Mumbai. (New Bombay). language and housing character.

It is also a cultural manifestation.

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

others are global in scope. personal preferences and many institutional constraints. A particular social pattern brings about a particular built form. The caste system of India separates and hierarchies the Hindus. A household’s choice of place to live is determined by its income level. race and religion (Vance.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 22 subdivided. These factors are (Alexander. Various economic. 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. commercial buildings. craftsmen and merchants were born. People as food gatherers advanced to become farmers. Soon. The external . social and political circumstances influence the social pattern (Scargill. 1992a).4 The Evolution of the Urban Form of Indian Cities The traditional theory of urban origin is generally attributed to Childe (Herbert.5 The Sociocultural Factors India is among the most stratified of all known societies in the world (Srinivas. For thousands of years. and Thomas. Plots of varying sizes and shapes influence the layout of the streets and of individual buildings (Knox. Childe put forth a theory that urban centers were a result of agricultural change. 1990). Certain built forms encourage certain social patterns. However. Urbanization took place at different chronological periods. private rental and public sector housing operationalize housing sectors. 1979). Owner-occupier. often because of a city wall. This allowed some of the people to develop other professions. The evolution of the urban pattern of Indian cities is divided into the social pattern and the built form. government offices and warehouses formed the built environment of the city. 1990). they supported a range of activities. Clear differentiation between urban and rural existed. Planning controls influence development to a great extent. 3. The social pattern and the built form are interrelated and contribute to the urban morphology of a city. While some processes are culture-specific. other scholars contend that it is doubtful that surplus can be attributed as the single factor which caused the emergence of urban settlements (Jacobs. surplus food production was achieved. Reasons such as trade and defense have also been used to explain the formation of cities. Kosambi. The factors influencing urbanization were also different. Priests. 3. Instead. The variation in influencing factors and historical circumstance gave rise to different urban forms in different parts of the world.

The criteria for the differentiation can normally be translated into money or wealth. The social stratification is very deep and varied. diet and dress. linguistic. marriage and death ceremonies distinguish one caste from another.2 Class "Class refers to a system of stratification which is economic in character" (Gupta. religion and language are discussed below. Vaishya and Sudra are said to have come from the mouth. 1992b:14). Although no hierarchy is mentioned in the Sukta. 1992). However. thighs and feet of the Creator. vertical and horizontal systems of stratification exist. Ethnic characteristics refer to language. The caste system varies from village to village and is a local phenomenon. Various combinations of the hierarchy have come about due to regional differentiation in certain attributes of social living. Hierarchy allows elements of the whole to be ranked with relation to each other (example: income and prestige). 3. these single criterion hierarchies can be misleading as they depend on cutoff points related to individual analysis (Gupta.

Stratification implies a differentiation based on a set of criteria. 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. Repulsion between castes forced isolation and the creation of distinct residential enclaves (Bougle. Along with the caste exist occupational stratification. The spirit of the caste system is determined by the attitudes of each caste to the other. The characteristics caste. religious and ethnic diversity of the country (Gupta.

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. From the beginning Islam has been a conquering and proselytizing faith (Hodson. 3. There are many religions in India. A certain degree of animosity between Hindus and Muslims has existed since the first Muslim ruler of 1018 AD. degree of control over the language and relationship between the languages affect their social communication. “In most folk-memory the Muslims of India had been ruler. The Hindu religion has always been a pacifist and tolerant religion.

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

In the initial stages it was in the form of caste differentiation as prescribed by the Hindu/ Vedic texts. class. These characteristics are derived from the need for defense and administration and the importance of religion (Kopardekara. The temple also influences the siting of other land uses. The Indian society was also stratified horizontally by language.6 The Built Form The historical evolution of the built form of Indian cities can be divided into three distinct phases. Judaism and Christianity found their way into India. Certain other shapes were also considered to be auspicious like the circle. However. the differentiation and assimilation in progress in a multi-ethnic society receives a prominent place in any political conflict. Sikhism were born in India while Islam. The square was used in the creation of the vastupurusha mandala. orientation of buildings and arrangement of internal rooms based on astrological and religious criteria (Volwahsen. . The earliest is the Hindu phase (3000 B. both from within and without the country. A number of languages coexisted in all parts of the country. The temple as the symbol of religion dominates the urban form. which contributes many elements to the urban form. The town wall enclosed the mandala. Prime commercial and residential land was located near the temple. While some groups spoke of an all-India nationality other speaks of a regional nationality (Brass. and four gateways were situated at the cardinal points. 3. 1986).

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

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

The model is very simple and can be used to predict how urban land markets work.3 Multiple Nuclei Theory The multiple nuclei theory was put forth by Harris and Ullman. S (Hoyt. Hoyt studied the city as an economist concerned with how the housing market worked. This model also accommodates growth (Hartshorn. It gives strength to cities with original nucleus in the center. 1979). Burgess has been criticized for not having considered topographical criteria. 1979). 1939 3.2 Sector Theory Homer Hoyt put forth a land use theory after studying over 100 cities in the U. This is because concentration of certain activities may prove to be more beneficial.3 Sector Theory Source: Hoyt. and subsequent decentralization (Figure 3. commercial ethnic group residential industrial Figure 3. Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. It was intended to serve as a framework for studying urban growth and change (King and Golledge. 3. 1978). Hence. This is not a generalized model. It is more specific to some cities (King and Golledge. 1992). The original model did not take into account specialized clusters of industry. empirical studies did not confirm his model one hundred percent (Herbert and Thomas. Neighborhoods for each income group are common.7. 1939). 1990).7.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 29 travel from outer zones to the CBD for work. 1992 . 1978).4). industries may cluster around the railway line or lowincome housing along a riverbank. These reasons complemented a concentric zone development model (Scargill.4 Multiple Nuclei Theory Source: Hartshorn. This model proposes that patterns in many cities be arranged around several centers (Scargill. Concentric zones or sectors may emerge from these nuclei. Rental value was the main criterion for studying the pattern (King. For example.3). 1979). The model also accounts for growth along transport routes. The wedge pattern represents residential area growth (Scargill. However. The real world is more complicated than what was represented by Burgess’ very general model. 1978). He said that residential sectors of similar rent are situated in wedges radiating from the center (Figure 3. 1979). and Golledge. Hoyt also stressed the need to consider zoning laws and slum clearance laws in making models. Hoyt primarily studied residential land use. It also did not explain the impact of transport networks on these zones (Scargill.

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

1979). Australia (Timms. 3. youth/migrants and black poverty. Studies of Brisbane. traditional and modern design elements juxtaposed in seemingly dichotomous ways. 1990) showed similar results.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 31 predominant in cities where migration is high. 1995) shows that the four important factors in the social pattern are underclass. 1992.2 Third World Cities commercial ethnic group residential industrial Ethnic Status CBD Transition Low income Middle income High income Family Status Socioeconomic Status Income group 1 Income group 2 Income group 3 Figure 3. The changing pattern of family cycle reflects concentric zones while that of social rank is in sectors. Public open spaces are generally found only .

A large number of models of Third World cities have been made (Lowder.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 3: The Conceptual Framework 32 around religious buildings.

The nuclei are original village. which contribute significantly to the urban pattern (Kopardekara. The modern place is more spacious. are very complex and have evolved over a very long time. 1986). 1986). The center of the city was the plaza. the morphological pattern of each Third World city is different mainly because of the presence of an indigenous city enclosed by a colonial city. The second and third concentric zones were occupied progressively by poorer people. substandard living conditions and ethnicity were the broad variables that defined the social pattern of the city. 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. and surrounds old Delhi (Figure 3. and subsequently surrounded by an industrial city (Lowder. 1980. family ties. .7).

A classic example can be seen in the design of New Delhi.6 Plan of Delhi and New educated and professional classes followed the Delhi. social and economic variables may not be the only factors. But. The colonial cities in Latin America show a centralized social pattern (Portes. Processes quite different from those in western cities govern the pattern of Third World cities. Even single cities. The residences of the richer class formed the first concentric zone around the plaza.

8 Latin American Cities America. In the 18th and 19th centuries. The social ties are horizontal and vertical. 1986). "Particularly in cosmopolitan cities cultural or linguistic diversity and regional associations develop to extol their culture and language and to participate in their own . The horizontal relationships are between people of the same cultural background while vertical relationships are between caste and class. the residences became smaller and public amenities were reduced. status groups help to produce a very obscure patterning of social groups at the micro-level of analysis. and especially to construct a structural model. Soon socioeconomic status related to nearness to the center became related to distance away from the center. new definitions had to be made. In the cities where new professions were created. 1980): i Residences have not yet come to serve the symbolic function they do in the Western world.8. Research findings point out that while caste is important in rural societies for its very functioning. A consistent relationship existed between socioeconomic position of the household and their distance from the center of the city. The outer ring bordered on farmland (Figure 3. Soon. and religious duties performed by the Brahmins. languages and customs.

The pattern was a creation of the lifestyle choices of the urban rich (Portes. 3. The pattern is similar to the one described by the sector model of North Figure 3. climatic and aesthetic factors. The greater complexity of urban life and the difficulty of maintaining caste identity through residential segregation alone.8). has created social organizations for each caste (Kopardekara. It has been found that Indian cities defy social modeling. in general.3 Indian Cities In cities of India. In Lima. Santiago and Chile Source: Lowder. the Indian urban social scene essentially reflects two facets of non-western structure (Hall. 1986 residential colonies moved from the center of the city to the urban periphery which were selected for their better geographic. A second indigenous factor suffusing urban society is that of regional affiliation. Many studies have been done to study Indian urban areas. many large cities became crowded. the farther away from the center. 1977). 1975). industrial and office workers belonged to all castes. religion and language rather than demographics and economics can be seen. in urban environments the meaning of caste becomes more important in terms of identity rather than function. Wealthier families began to move out of the center and settle in more isolated locations. farming is done only by the Sudra caste.

i Metropolitan cities (Bombay. i North Indian cities had low female employment rates. and that the temple acted as the most meaningful focus for the spatial distribution of social characteristics. . low literacy. real case studies did not prove this theory. Industrial towns like Jamshedpur were planned around their industrial core. Weinstein (1974) made an attempt to produce a conceptual model for the social segregation of an Indian city. i South Indian cities had higher female employment rate. He had the following conclusions. colonial cities. Pune and Varanasi. had western style CBDs. The centroid of the system represents the optimum location for accessibility to all three functions. Instead. Ahmad (1965) did a factor analysis of the socioeconomic characteristics of Indian cities. He postulated three dimensions as being important contributors to residential segregation. However. 1980:35). Although the neighborhoods that result are not corporate groups in the sense in which they are defined. i The modern planned cities (Jamshedpur. such neighborhoods are the source for the development of the corporate groups. it was found that multiple nuclei were present. 1968). higher literacy. Calcutta) has low-density commercial centers surrounded by high-density residential neighborhoods.

These examples show that the urban social pattern of Indian cities is very complex due to the influence of a variety of factors. The existence of multiple physical urban patterns caused by the presence of indigenous settlements. The patterns were attributed to Europeanism. The social patterns were also strongly influenced by the age of the city. Analysis at the level of a single city gave patterns that are more complex. transportation and socioeconomic status (Kosambi. 1901. castes and classes produces a more heterogeneous pattern.

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

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

Statistics are weighted for spatial data because. and compare it to other cities. An error of 5-8% is expected. For a social area analysis.378 Kopar-khairane 14. is census data. Although principal components analysis is no longer considered the most favorable mode of analysis to delineate patterns.056 New Panvel 9. the sector is the unit of analysis.283 Nerul 16.5. The single variable from that data set is selected and a histogram of it at the . Finally. and at the sub-regional scale attached as Appendix C. The survey was carried out on a ~22% sample basis for each node. These are techniques in multivariate analysis.109 Kalamboli 9. This is a detailed stage of analysis. The variables are expected to cluster based on the constructs described above.1 Descriptive Analysis The first stage of analysis describes the data at both the regional and sub-regional scale. cartographic mapping. 4. The descriptive analysis helps understand the finer dimensions of the data. The GIS and mapping techniques convert all the statistical information into a graphic representation. and GIS overlay techniques are used to determine the social pattern at the regional and sub-regional levels.007 Airoli 13.161 Sanpada 2.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 40 socioeconomic survey done by CIDCO in December 1995. 4.338 Belapur 9. although variables are related. The cluster analysis puts together cases which are similar based on the relationship between the variables. Table 4. data covering a large area is required.2 Survey Sampling Node Total Number of Dwellings Vashi 27. the units of analysis are not identical. These four methods are collectively used to analyze the data.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.5 Methodology Four methodologies are used to analyze the data. In this research. The first is a descriptive analysis of the data setting out the parameters that need to be considered to define the meaning of heterogeneity. for the purpose of this thesis it shall be used. All data is standardized. The principal components analysis draws out the relationship between the variables. The only data source that provides this information. The census data is not 100% reliable. The second is a principal components analysis. At the regional scale the data is tabulated. The third is cluster analysis of the cases to see which variables are closely associated.

Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 41 sub-regional scale is drawn. The data matrix is converted into a correlation matrix. The elements of the eigenvectors that are used to compute the scores are called principal component loadings. Generally variables with communalities less than 0. Patterns can be delineated from mapping these components. The cases are the rows and the variables are the columns. the matrix of component scores is computed. The data is interpreted in terms of its mean and standard deviation. The axis has been rotated orthogonally (assuming the factors are uncorrelated).5. This approach to classification is very subjective. 1978). Corresponding communalities are also estimated. The . 1986). then the pattern shall be interpreted as homogeneous. The eigenvalue criterion (eigenvalue greater than or equal to 1) helps eliminate components which are not meaningful. Finally. It has very little theory and depends largely on experience. Rotating the axis more closely intersects the clusters of variables. The first step of principal components analysis is to obtain an initial solution. Comparative figures at the national scale are also given. Cluster analysis classifies the groups according to the observations into moreor-less homogenous and distinct groups (Davis. 1986). Principal components are the eigenvalues of the correlation matrix (Davis. it is necessary to provide a permissible range of variation. If the standard deviation at the 95% confidence interval is within 15% of the mean. the second component accounts for as much of the residual variance left unexplained by the first factor. 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. This is varimax rotation. This matrix is next converted into a factor matrix. Principal components analysis can be thought of as four matrices. The first matrix is a simple data matrix. Characteristics of the urban social pattern can be revealed by considering the relationship within groups. The initial solution is based on the orthogonal solution. In order to interpret this descriptive statistics for homogeneity. The rotation normally removes the negative loadings. The N by M matrix is standardized in terms of standard deviation. 4.2 Principal Components Analysis A principal components analysis reduces a large number of variables to a smaller number of underlying components. and so on" (Kim and Mueller. certain restrictions are imposed. 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. This solution determines whether a small number of the components can be used to explain the covariance between a large number of variables. 4.5. "To obtain the initial solution.7 are not significant in the correlation matrix. The second step is to rotate the axis to get a simpler solution. This matrix contains components that represent a group of interrelated variables. and results in a simpler pattern.3 Cluster Analysis Classification of data places objects in one or more homogenous groups. Each original observation is converted into a principal component score. These loadings indicate the strength of the relationships between variables and underlying components.

Distance coefficients are linked at low values. 4.6 Data Analysis Descriptive analysis of the data was done using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. principal components analysis and cluster analysis. 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. . then connects the next most similar observations to these. The levels of similarity are used to construct the dendrogram.Malathi Ananathakrishnan Chapter 4: The Research Design 42 classification procedure used here is hierarchical clustering. This method joins similar observations. as is the correlation coefficient. Analysis was then done of one particular node of Navi Mumbai. Mapping of the principal components determined if any pattern exists in the social characteristics of Navi Mumbai at the regional and sub-regional scales.4 Mapping and Overlays The final stage is the mapping of the descriptive analysis. A measure of similarity between every pair of objects is computed using Euclidean distance. 4. The criteria for clustering is that both observations mutually have the highest correlation with each other. A low distance would indicate that two objects are similar and a large distance would indicate that the two objects are dissimilar. The distance coefficient is not constrained within the range of +1. This mapping helps explain the statistics through a easily interpretable graphic representation.0. namely Vashi. A correlation coefficient or distance coefficient may be used to evaluate similarities.5. and so produces better dendrograms. This stage of analysis integrates the theoretical framework. The aim of these two kinds of analysis was to determine if the data set clustered into the three constructs given above. and the statistical analysis to determine an interpretation of the pattern.0 to -1. The regional scale was comparisons between the eight nodes of Navi Mumbai.

The methodological reason for selecting these eight nodes out of the total of thirteen is because data was available for only these eight nodes. This spatial scale is • regional scale (nodes). Then the data set was studied at a sub-regional level by analyzing the neighborhoods of Vashi node.1 Introduction The aim of this research is to study the urban social pattern of the population across a hierarchical scale.

Again. it represents a majority of the population. The first component is one which has a high socioeconomic component dominated by a Muslim population. As the Marathi population is 53% of the total population. This can be translated into a middle-class population. The third component is the economically active age group dominated by the Hindu population. The second component has only the population speaking Marathi.

The descriptive analysis of individual variables also shows this non-uniform pattern. and distinctly driven by an ethnic component at the sub-regional scale.Malathi Ananthakrishnan Chapter 5: Presentation of Data 64 households speaking Malayalam. In summary. and a strong ethnic component is seen. . PCA and cluster analysis brings forth the variability of the data and shows which variables and which cases cluster together. the outcome of the implementation strategy shows otherwise. At the sub-regional scale as there is a smaller percentage of CIDCO-built houses.

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

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

Although the four maps above (Figure 6.15, Figure 6.16, Figure 6.17, Figure 6.18) show that there is a different colored sector within a group of one color, the multiple nuclei pattern is not very obvious. However, looking at the descriptive analysis, principal components analysis, cluster analysis and the mapping collectively, the multiple nuclei pattern can be inferred. The descriptive analysis brought out the fact that the spatial pattern is

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

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

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

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