    1. 2. 0 <ul><li>THE OPTION WITH THE EXPERTS, FOR GROWTH OF THE URBAN-AREAS, ARE GENERALLY RESTRICTED TO THE FOLLOWING FIVE WAYS: </li></ul><ul><li>Growth around the existing large cities </li></ul><ul><li>Growth above the existing large cities </li></ul><ul><li>Systematic growth of all the existing small cities </li></ul><ul><li>Development of urban strips or nodes along the highways </li></ul><ul><li>Development of satellites around the major cities </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>HOWEVER, THE ASPIRATION OF A GENERAL INDIAN HAS ALWAYS BEEN, THAT, OUR SETTLEMENT PATTERN SHOULD BE SUCH, THAT, ‘ WE GET OUR JOB OPPORTUNITIES & INSTITUTIONS, WHERE WE LIVE’ (in the villages and the small-towns ) ; A concept of ‘Ring roads with urban amenities, enclosing several villages within the ring’ , has been discussed at several platforms in the country (The PURA concept) . </li></ul><ul><li>IN LIGHT OF THE CONTEMPORARY REQUIREMENTS OF THE INDIANS, we have developed a viable ‘Urban Settlement Plan’ for rural India, which demands negligible conversion of the rural land into urban nodes and develops the most significant urban amenity for the Indians, AN EXTREMELY EFFICIENT ‘PUBLIC TRANSPORT NETWORK’ FOR CONNECTING EVERY VILLAGE OF THE COUNTRY WITH ITS DEVELOPING URBAN AREAS. </li></ul><ul><li>THE PROJECT INVOLVES: </li></ul><ul><li>DEVELOPMENT OF NUMEROUS ‘SMALL URBAN NODES’ (very small modules with the area of a regular sector in a developed township ) , for industrial activity, institutional activity & agricultural support, WITH MINIMAL RESIDENTIAL AREA , amidst the existing villages, at a distance of about 5 Km. from each other </li></ul><ul><li>DEVELOPMENT OF AN EFFICIENT PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM, WITH ITS ASSOCIATED ROAD NETWORK, for connecting these ‘Small Urban Nodes’ with each other and the existing villages (requiring about 20 minutes travel-time to commute from any node to any other node & a maximum of 60 minutes to reach anywhere from anywhere within a typical Regional-module, of about the area of Singapore) </li></ul><ul><li>THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT SHALL RESULT IN AN ORGANIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE EXISTING VILLAGES FOR COMFORTABLE RESIDENTIAL AREAS / FARM HOUSES / HOUSING SOCIETIES ETC, WITHOUT ANY EFFORT FROM THE GOVERNMENT, ALONG THE FEEDER ROADS TO THE NEW NETWORK OF EXPRESS ROADS IN THE PROJECT </li></ul>OVERVIEW
    2. 3. 0 <ul><li>THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE TAKEN UP SIMULTANEOUSLY IN THE ENTIRE STATE, IN THE FORM OF ‘REGIONAL MODULES’ ( about 200 villages in about 600 sq. Km. Area, enclosed between the existing highways), around all the major cities of the state. The development of these well-connected ‘Regional modules’, growing away from the cities, SHALL CREATE A CONTINUOUS WEB OF ROADS & URBAN NODES IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, IN LESS THAN 5 YEARS. </li></ul><ul><li>IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT OUR RURAL POPULATION, NEEDS THE URBANIZATION MOST, BUT, the dissatisfaction within the rural population, that, ‘the benefits of a developed rural land goes, primarily, to the developers & the resellers’ , IS EXPECTED TO POSE HURDLES IN ANY CONVENTIONAL FORM OF URBAN DEVELOPMENT ; Hence, the system for development has been created, in a manner that it not only avoids any clash of interest but encourage the entire community to support the development. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>A SYSTEM FOR COOPERATIVE OWNERSHIP OF THE ‘SMALL URBAN NODES’, along with its network of roads & cultivating strip, has been developed in a manner that , IT NOT ONLY CREATES A DESIRABLE SITUATION FOR OUR FUTURE, IT ALSO FACILITATES FAST IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT ; THE SYSTEM INVOLVES: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>DEVELOPMENT THROUGH THE COOPERATIVE SOCIETIES, OF THE LAND OWNERS, PANCHAYATS AND THE LOCAL RESIDENTS ; the system shall create a democratic ownership of some significant urban properties in future. </li></ul><ul><li>DEVELOPMENT OF ONLY 10 % OF THE TOTAL AREA OF THE REGIONAL MODULE (5 % FOR CULTIVATION & 5% FOR URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE); rest of the land shall remain with the existing owners for agriculture or private development. </li></ul><ul><li>UTILIZATION OF THE NEW URBAN NODES, PRIMARILY, FOR INDUSTRIAL/INSTITUTIONAL ACTIVITIES, ALONG WITH THE UTILIZATION OF THE EXISTING VILLAGES FOR RESIDENTIAL SUPPORT ; the development shall integrate the two classes of ‘GRAMIN’ & ‘SHAHRI’ </li></ul><ul><li>UTILIZATION OF THE RETURNS (FINANCIAL & SOCIOLOGICAL) FROM THE DEVELOPMENT ( during and after the transition of the underutilized land into the high value urban infrastructure) , BY THE LOCAL POPULATION ; the returns to population of the pilot ‘Regional Module’ shall encourage initiation of other ‘Regional modules’ in the country. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>IT IS OUR CONSIDERED OPINION, THAT, WE SHOULD NOT DEVELOP OUR URBAN AREAS & OUR VILLAGES, SEPARATELY, WITH DIFFERENT PROGRAMS & FUNDS (JNNURM v/s PURA/MNREGA/PMGSY). </li></ul>OVERVIEW
    3. 4. 0 <ul><li>THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF ‘REGIONAL-MODULES’ SHOULD BE PREFERRED, over the natural tendency of urban development (concentrated around the existing cities & the highways), PRIMARILY DUE TO: </li></ul><ul><li>BETTER LINKAGE OF THE NEW URBAN DEVELOPMENT WITH THE ENTIRE POPULATION/LAND of the ‘Regional Module’, desirable for a uniform development of all the villages in the modules, which, in turn is desirable for development of democracy in India. </li></ul><ul><li>LOWER COST OF LIVING (Property, Transportation & Food) for most of the population, as they will continue to live in the villages and use public transport (to reach any where in the network of the ‘urban nodes’, from an interchange point in their vicinity) </li></ul><ul><li>MUCH BETTER VIABILITY FOR THE INSTITUTIONS AND THE INFRASTRUCTURE , because of their connectivity to a large population of the module, through an efficient ‘Public Transport System’. </li></ul><ul><li>HIGHER LEVEL OF SECURITY FOR THE NEW URBAN DEVELOPMENT , due to its connectivity with only the new network of secured roads & the interchanges. </li></ul><ul><li>CONVENIENCE IN AVAILABILITY OF LAND FOR DEVELOPMENT, DUE TO THE SHAPE OF THE PROPOSED NODES and flexibility in the location of these ‘Nodes’ ( about 5 Km distance from each other) </li></ul><ul><li>CONVENIENCE OF DEVELOPMENT , DUE TO EASY IDENTIFICATION OF THE MODULES (cell like ‘Regional Modules’), for step by step (quantum) growth, one after another, around the major cities throughout the country. </li></ul><ul><li>THE PATTERN OF DEVELOPMENT, THAT CAN MOVE FURTHER AWAY FROM THE EXISTING CITIES, AT A FASTER PACE, DUE TO THE MODULAR DEVELOPMENT (a regional Module of about 15 urban nodes & the network for public transport system), from the first ring of Regional Modules to the next. </li></ul><ul><li>THE ABOVE MENTIONED URBAN DEVELOPMENT PROJECT , for the contemporary aspiration for living in the rural areas with the comfort of the large cities MAY BE GIVEN AN APPROPRIATE NAME LIKE CITYGAON OR NAGARGAON and can be expressed with slogans like, ‘CITYGAON KA KHEL - SHAHAR GAON KA MEL’ </li></ul>OVERVIEW
    4. 5. MIGRATION ISSUE-1 THE UNPRECEDENTED WAVE OF TRANSITION, triggered by the computers, communication systems and the world politics, has already influenced a majority of its families; however, this large scale resettlement (with multiple relocations from the rural & small urban centers to large cities) IS EXPECTED TO CULMINATE IN A DECADE OR TWO, AND CONTROL OUR OPTIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT IN FUTURE VILLAGES SLUMS 0 INDIA IS GOING THROUGH A LARGE-SCALE MIGRATION FROM ITS UNDERNOURISHED RURAL ENVIRONMENT IN THE VILLAGES, TO ITS UNHEALTHY URBAN ENVIRONMENT IN THE SLUMS .
    5. 6. WORK OPPORTUNITIES <ul><ul><li>THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE EXPECTED TO REDUCE: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the villages, DUE TO MECHANIZED FARMING & collective cultivation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the cities, due to the expected REDUCTION IN THE DEMAND FOR INDIAN PRODUCTS & services, due to the increasing cost of production/service in our urban areas (consequence of the increasing cost of living) . </li></ul></ul>ISSUE-2 AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY 0 THE WORK OPPORTUNITIES IN INDIA MAY NOT CONTINUE TO GROW FOR LONG , BOTH, IN THE VILLAGES AND THE CITIES
    6. 7. WARNING-1 <ul><li>THE ‘HIGHER COST OF LIVING’ SHALL BE CRITICAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT : </li></ul><ul><li>The development of THE FAMILIES IN TRANSITION , requiring resources for all members of the family , in an urban environment with growing inflation. </li></ul><ul><li>The development of THE INDIAN INDUSTRY , in the competitive world market </li></ul>A GENERAL OVERSIGHT QUALITY OF LIVING COST OF LIVING 0 Development of viable & sustainable growth systems for the Indian urban zones, in order to welcome transition from rural to urban India, can definitely reduce the trauma during the transition, BUT, THE URBAN LIFE, FOR OUR LARGE POPULATION, IS DEFINITELY NOT A PREFERRED OPTION in terms of both, the ‘cost of living’ & the ‘quality of living’.
    7. 8. WARNING-2 <ul><li>THE POPULATION, AFTER MIGRATION, IS EXPECTED TO POSE HIGH RESISTANCE, FOR REVERSING MIGRATION, DUE TO THE REASONS, INCLUDING: </li></ul><ul><li>THE GROWN-UP URBAN FORCES OF THE FUTURE, after the ongoing investments in the cities (the forces will discourage moves, by government/corporate agencies, encouraging emigration from the cities) . </li></ul><ul><li>ATTACHMENT OF THE MAJORITY POPULATION WITH AN URBAN LIFE, in future, in spite of the hardships (like our present population in the slums) </li></ul>  AN IRREVERSIBLE DEVELOPMENTS 0 INDIA MAY NOT GET A ‘HUMAN SETTLEMENT PATTERN’ OF ITS CHOICE (for low cost of production and high quality of living) UNLESS WE DISCOURAGE MIGRATION TO THE URBAN AREAS, IN THE COMING DECADES; in order to avoid what has already happened in the industrialized countries. A CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE OF THE URBANIZATION IN THE COMING DECADES
    8. 9. GOAL-1 <ul><ul><li>LOW COST OF LIVING: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Human settlement pattern of India should be such that the ‘cost of living’ (residence, transportation & food), for industrial and institutional workers, is COMPARABLE TO THE PRESENT COST OF LIVING FOR THE RURAL WORKERS in India; unlike for those in the cities. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RAPID & SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENT OF A DESIRABLE URBAN SETTLEMENTS PATTERN IN THE ENTIRE INDIA, WITH: </li></ul></ul>RESIDENCE FOOD TRANSPORTATION 0
    9. 10. GOAL-2 <ul><ul><li>AMPLE WORK OPPORTUNITIES: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Ample varieties of work opportunity should be available for all adults, WITHOUT GOING AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILIES in the villages. </li></ul>WORKING AND LIVING AWAY FROM THE FAMILY LIVING WITH THE FAMILY AND COMMUTING FOR WORK 0 <ul><ul><li>RAPID & SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENT OF A DESIRABLE URBAN SETTLEMENTS PATTERN IN THE ENTIRE INDIA, WITH: </li></ul></ul>
    10. 11. GOAL-3 <ul><ul><li>VIABILITY OF THE INSTITUTIONS: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Proper utilization/viability of its institutions (medical / educational / judicial / commercial / recreational) , without compromise on the availability of options for use to its population; LIKE IN THE CITIES </li></ul>AVAILABILITY OF MULTIPLE INSTITUTIONS FOR EACH FAMILIES AVAILABILITY OF LARGE CLIENTELE FOR EACH INSTITUTION 0 <ul><ul><li>RAPID & SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENT OF A DESIRABLE URBAN SETTLEMENTS PATTERN IN THE ENTIRE INDIA, WITH: </li></ul></ul>
    11. 12. GOAL- 4 <ul><ul><li>EFFICIENCY OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE : </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Efficient infrastructure (public transportation for passengers & goods / security service / electricity & water supply etc.), with high level of service and accessibility for the entire area ; LIKE IN THE HIGH DENSITY CONTIGUOUS URBAN AREAS/CITIES </li></ul>EFFICIENCY OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE NETWORKS IN THE CONTIGUOUS URBAN AREAS INEFFICIENCY OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE NETWORKS IN LOW DENSITY RURAL AREAS 0 <ul><ul><li>RAPID & SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENT OF A DESIRABLE URBAN SETTLEMENTS PATTERN IN THE ENTIRE INDIA, WITH: </li></ul></ul>
    12. 13. GOAL-5 <ul><ul><li>SECURITY/SAFETY </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fool-proof security systems, against crime/terrorism/war, BETTER THAN THE SITUATIONS IN OUR PRESENT CITIES </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RAPID & SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENT OF A DESIRABLE URBAN SETTLEMENTS PATTERN IN THE ENTIRE INDIA, WITH: </li></ul></ul>
    13. 14. POLICY-1 THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ‘REGIONAL MODULES’, AROUND THE STATE CAPITALS AND OTHER MAJOR CITIES like Amritsar, Allahabad, Jodhpur, Bhagalpur, Jabalpur, Sambalpur, Nagpur, Vijayawada, Dharwad, Madurai, Etc., SIMULTANEOUSLY . DELHI PATNA JAIPUR <ul><li>URBAN GROWTH, IN MODULES, SHOOTING AWAY FROM THE EXISTING CITIES </li></ul>A GROWTH PATTERN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF WORK OPPORTUNITIES IN THE AREAS, FAR AWAY FROM THE PRESENT CITIES, ALONG WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE AREAS ADJOINING THE EXISTING CITIES , IMMEDIATELY
    14. 15. POLICY-1 ALL HAVE SIMILAR CONNECTIVITY AND OPPORTUNITIES AND ALL NEED TO BE DEVELOPED, SIMULTANEOUSLY; FIRST PHASE WITH ESSENTIAL SERVICES, INCLUDING A COMPREHENSIVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM, CAN BE INITIATED IMMEDIATELY, THROUGH LOCAL RESOURCES AND PUBLIC SCHEMES. VAISHALI (HIGH DENSITY) GREATER NOIDA-II (MEDIUM DENSITY) BILASPUR (LOW DENSITY) ABOUT 3000 ‘REGIONAL MODULES’ (cultivated or barren land between the existing highways of India, except the forests & other such geographical features), OF ABOUT TWO HUNDRED VILLAGES (1, 50,000 acres/600 Sq. km.), ENCLOSED BETWEEN THE HIGHWAYS AND RAILWAYS OF THE COUNTRY , EXIST IN THE COUNTRY. <ul><li>URBAN GROWTH, IN MODULES, SHOOTING AWAY FROM THE EXISTING CITIES </li></ul>
    15. 16. POLICY-2 THE COMFORT, OF LOWER PRICE LAND FOR GENERAL LIVING IN THE RURAL AREAS, SHOULD BE VIABLE IN LIEU OF A JOURNEY UP TO AN HOUR, ON A SEAMLESS PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM TO THE WORK PLACE AND THE INSTITUTIONS . RURAL LIVING URBAN WORKING TRAVEL, UP TO AN HOUR <ul><li>COMFORT OF RURAL LIVING AND URBAN WORKING </li></ul>THE PRESENT SITUATION (LEAVING THE FAMILIES IN THE RURAL AREAS AND WORKING IN THE URBAN AREA), CAN BE IMPROVED , SUBSTANTIALLY, BY DEVELOPING THE URBAN AREAS ALL OVER THE RURAL FABRIC. LOWER COST OF LIVING AS IN THE RURAL AREAS AND THE JOB OPPORTUNITIES AS IN THE URBAN AREAS
    16. 17. STRATEGY-1 <ul><li>URBAN DEVELOPMENT WITH FEW RESIDENCES </li></ul>URBAN NODES SPREAD OVER THE RESIDENTIAL AREAS IN THE RURAL FABRIC THERE SHOULD BE NO PRIVATE HOUSES; ONLY A FEW RENTAL UNITS AND HOSTELS, For Select Outsiders Working In The Urban Nodes, ALONG WITH SUBSTANTIAL COMMUNITY/ INSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT FOR THE SURROUNDING RURAL AREAS DUE TO THE DIFFICULTY IN LAND ACQUISITION , only a little urban development is viable and it is also desirable that the limited resources are utilized for maximum spread across the country ; hence, THE DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE SMALL AND INCLUDE ONLY A LITTLE RESIDENTIAL AREA URBAN NODES SPREAD OVER THE RURAL FABRIC RESIDENTIAL AREAS WITH IN THE RURAL FABRIC
    17. 18. STRATEGY-2 SMALL URBAN NODES OF THE SIZE OF A REGULAR SECTOR OF A TOWNSHIP SUSTAINABLE MODULES FOR ‘INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY’, ‘INSTITUTIONAL ACTIVITY’ & ‘AGRICULTURAL SUPPORT’, ARE VIABLE ON ABOUT 300 ACRES LAND (about a regular sector of a developed township) ; PROVIDED, THEY ARE WELL CONNECTED WITH SEVERAL OTHER SIMILAR MODULES AND A LARGE RESIDENTIAL ENVIRONMENT. <ul><li>URBAN DEVELOPMENT WITH VERY SMALL NODES </li></ul>NODES ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A SMALL HUB FOR RESIDENTIAL SUPPORT AND THREE BLADES FOR VARIOUS CATEGORY PLOTS, AS PER THE REQUIREMENT OF THE PARTICULAR CATEGORY NODE
    18. 19. STRATEGY-2 <ul><li>URBAN DEVELOPMENT WITH VERY SMALL NODES </li></ul>TYPICAL PLANS FOR THE URBAN-NODES, IN A FAN LIKE SHAPE PROVIDES INHERENT FLEXIBILITY OF PLACEMENT BETWEEN THE EXISTING HABITATS SECURITY WITHIN THE SMALL, NON-RESIDENTIAL URBAN AREAS CAN BE EASILY MAINTAINED with continuous surveillance of the public/semi-public areas and controlled entry to all the feeder roads to these urban areas  UTILIZATION OF THE UNDERUTILIZED LAND SMALL NODES, OFFER AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE UTILIZATION OF THE UNDERUTILIZED AND CHEAP CHUNKS OF LAND , IN BETWEEN THE SETTLEMENTS, AWAY FROM THE HIGHWAYS.
    19. 20. STRATEGY-3 UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF THE ‘SMALL URBAN NODES’ CAN PROVIDE A UNIFORM DEVELOPMENT OF INSTITUTIONAL & COMMERCIAL SUPPORT FOR AN ENTIRE REGIONAL MODULE, THROUGH THE PROVISIONS IN THE HUB OF EACH SUCH NODE. HUB FOR BASIC INSTITUTIONAL/COMMERCIAL SUPPORT AND THE THREE BLADES FOR OTHER WORK OPPORTUNITIES <ul><li>SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENT OF A LARGE NUMBER OF THE ‘SMALL URBAN NODES’ ( AT 5 KM. DISTANCE ) </li></ul>UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF THE ‘SMALL URBAN NODES’ ALSO PROVIDES A UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF THE WORK OPPORTUNITY IN INDUSTRIAL/INSTITUTIONAL/AGRICULTURE-SUPPORT THROUGH THE PROVISIONS, IN THE THREE BLADES OF ALL THE NODES . (A TYPICAL INSTITUTIONAL NODE) (A TYPICAL INDUSTRIAL NODE)
    20. 21.
