CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE
With immense pleasure, I would like to introduce to you the batch of 2012 of Bachelor of Planning, SPA, New Delhi. Due to rapid urbanization, cities in India have grown in population and geographical size. This poses planners and policy makers with great challenges. However, without effective planning and management of cities, we may not be able to convert these challenges into opportunities. For this to happen, city leaders need trained urban and regional planners, who could make sense of the problems being faced by growing large cities and burgeoning vast regions and resolve them. Therefore, to steer cities in the direction where all its citizens benefit from its resources, prior training and collective vision of professional planners and political leaders, among others, is required. Department of Physical Planning is engaged in producing highly competent planners since 1989. Planners trained for four years in this Department are capable of meeting demands of ever transforming urban environments in India. During the four years, students go through a balanced but rigorous academic program that ensures complete coverage of all the skills required by a planner to work in a world class multi-cultural work environment. The students are not only taught through the tradition but also learn through participatory methods such as workshops, seminars, guest lectures and discussions on case study materials. The students have to undergo industrial training twice during the course for more than six weeks each to better
understand the dynamic nature of planning practice. At the Department we continually strive to innovate. For example, the students in the last semester of their degree course are encouraged to take up challenging independent thesis projects, which allow them to be creative and pragmatic in imagining solutions to resolve contemporary planning and development issues. It should be underscored that like previous batches, this batch is also backed with impeccable equilibrium of theory and practicality to assume their roles in various planning fields. Furthermore, the selection of the students at undergraduate level is made through cut throat competition, which itself is a mark of brilliance. After four years of academic study and training, the current batch of 2011 has become an electric mix of individuals, ready to face the challenging world of planning practice. With this genuine optimism, I believe needs of the recruiters shall. converge with the aspirations of our students to create a synergy never seen before. Regards, Dr. Mayank Mathur Associate Professor and Head Department of Physical Planning School of Planning and Architecture New Delhi

INTRODUCTION
Established as School of Town and Country Planning, SPA was established by the Government of India in 1955 and has the honour of being the second technical institution established post independence by the Central Government. Professor Humayun Kabir, the then Minister of Scientific Research laid the foundation stone for the institution. Prof, T. J. Manikam, a senior architect from CPWD, was the founding director. In 1959, the Department of Architecture of Delhi Polytechnic joined School of Town and Country Planning and the School got its new and current name as School of Planning and Architecture. Recognising SPAs National and International eminence, the Government of India conferred the status of Deemed University in 1979. As an autonomous body, is broadened its scope by introducing various new academic courses and to promote research and consultancy services. Even today SPA is the only deemed university imparting education in planning, architecture, and design. Currently there are two undergraduate and ten postgraduate courses along with Ph.D. facility in the School. School maintains bilateral ties with many foreign universities in England, European Union, Israel, South Africa and China along with SAARC countries for research workshops, seminars and exhibitions etc.

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL PLANNING
The Department of Physical Planning of the school offers a professional programme in physical planning leading to the degree of Bachelor of Planning. This professional programme caters to the growing demand for qualified physical planners in consonance with the accelerating pace of urbanization within the country in the field of urban and regional planning. The foundation stones of the department were laid by Prof. J, H. Ansari and his colleagues by introducing the first ever undergraduate planinng programme in this country in I989 to cater the ever- increasing demand of multi-disciplinary planning professionals. An industry relevant course curriculum of undergraduate planning programme was prepared based on rigorous research and inputs from the vast experiences of faculties in the field of teaching postgraduate and docotral students and professional consultancies in addition to the seminars and workshops conducted with the stakeholders in planning and development sector. Undergraduate planning course was started with a vision to create a pure planner in order to change the image of planner not as advisor but as a decision maker. Project level planning and programming is a specialized function and requires specialized training to produce qualified planners, who are able to identify, formulate, design, implement the project and enforce at a town level the development plans, policies and programmes. It requires a longer period of training primarily related to design. This was considered as the main focus for the undergraduate programme. Planning by its nature is a multi-disciplinary task. Planning issues have always been deep rooted as well as broad based. They touch upon social concerns, locational factors, political systems, demographic structures, and ecological and environmental concerns as much as technical matters. This makes every planning opportunity a unique experience in itself. Hence, Physical Planners are competent to become multi-disciplinary indigenous planning professionals with excellent management and communication skills. They are trained to understand the aims and objectives of socio-economic planning and translate these into spatial plans. They are also trained to work in and coordinate a group of specialists and decision makers. Thereby, we produce 'Planners' who are the best suited to prepare development plans. The students admitted to the programme are imparted basic skills that would serve them in various professional capacities which encompass development and planning agencies in the public sector as well as private consultancy organizations. During the programme, the students are imparted a strong foundation of theory and concepts in a wide spectrum of subjects to assume there roles in various disciplines of planning. The teaching methodology is essentially carried out by various project works and case studies undertaken by the students. Students are encouraged to learn through doing. Thus, a major part of the study time is spent: in surveying, analyzing and then proposing solutions to real life problems in the field of planning and development.

STUDIO DETAILS
MASTER PLAN: Vikarabad, Andhra Pradesh
The rapid urbanization of our country & the galloping rate of our cities’ expansion have made it imperative for the decision makers to done the drape of soothsayers & predict the future of the cities & towns in the near future. As an attempt to bridle the growth & development of our towns & cities, it is necessary to prepare a general plan for a particular period. Hence, the exercise of “Master Planning” is essential. On the same footing, the 6th semester is devoted to preparation of Master Plan of a town or city. The case study taken up was the town of Vikarabad with a population of 55,000 (census 2001). The town was a mix of agrarian & urban occupations & hence provided a very myriad field for research. The study team (students of 3rd year, 6th sem.) compiled both primary & secondary data & prepared the current scenario as part of the analysis. The proposal stage was divided into two scenarios, namely the normal growth (for 75000 population) & induced growth (for 1, 20,000 population). As the name suggests, the former considered the natural growth of the town in absence of any special attractions for pulling people from elsewhere. The latter considered the proximity of Hyderabad as a major developmental factor, identified Vikarabad as its satellite town & made policies & proposals for its development accordingly. The “normal growth” focused on natural population increase, agricultural development etc. the “induced growth” focused on industry & other tertiary economies owing to proximity of Hyderabad as development considerations. In both the cases land use plans satisfying the needs of the two scenarios were developed.

BATCH 2012 PROFILE
DISTRICT DEVELOPMENT PLAN: KULLU DISTRICT, HP
Regional Planning as an exercise emerged as a response to study & provide for the discrepancies that originate outside a particular town or city but have an impact on its development. As a matter of fact, the practice of regional plan should be the guiding document for any other lower hierarchy plans. Taking this idea forward, the 7th semester is devoted to the preparation of District Development Plan for Dist. Kullu, Himachal Pradesh. The study included study of existing status of the district in terms of settlement pattern, linkages, environment, agriculture, physical infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and commerce, transportation and tourism and financial and legal status of proposed local level governance as per the 73rd and 74th CAA.
