  1. 1. Future Cities : Ensuring World Class Civic Amenities in Urban India Team : Saransh Agrawal B.Arch. II IIT Roorkee Naman Sharma B.Arch. II IIT Roorkee Divyae Mittal B.Arch. II IIT Roorkee Tejas Rawal Ph.D. Scholar IIT Roorkee Shivam Gupta B.Arch. V IIT Roorkee
  2. 2. India is facing the problem of Pseudo Urbanization i.e. the condition in which a large city has formed in an area without a functional infrastructure to support it. Major problems • Lack of coordination between physical planning strategies and financial planning. Challenges for Urban India • Statistics show that urban population has increased from 10.8% to 31.2% in a 20th century without any major infrastructure development. • Also the rate of increase of urban population has also increased exponentially in past 50 years. • This happens largely because of so-called "rural push“ i.e. factors which push people from the countryside into the cities, without the city being prepared to accept them. • Lack of solid waste management facilities (for treatment and disposal). • Lack of drainage and sewage network specially in newly developed areas.
  3. 3. Commissioning Body Integrated Public Services Solid Waste Management We propose solution for the lack of public satisfaction and the wastage of government capital due to improper planning of a project (esp. construction) Combining intra city metro transport with a central cooling earth air tunnel and a common utility duct for future cities. We propose a new recycling agency funded by industries to recycle their waste products. Proposed solutions for these major challenges
  4. 4. Proposal for setting up a Commissioning Body • Public dissatisfaction towards government projects. • Poor quality of construction and maintenance. • No effective quality checks or work reviews. • There is a lack of clarity over departmental responsibilities for development, maintenance and enforcement. • Lack of coordination and no common database for management. • Ensuring the quality and timely completion of projects right from the stage of planning to completion of a project which can be extended up to maintenance period also, depending upon the project. • Public can also keep check by the virtue of decision of withholding their share of tax. • A Commissioning Body is proposed which will be a third party monitoring agency for the government projects of construction and maintenance (buildings, flyovers, roads etc.). • The proposed body will be answerable only to the judiciary but shall be financially controlled both by public and by state administration. Therefore, maximizing public satisfaction and transparency. What is Commissioning Body ? Why this Commissioning Body ? Functions of Commissioning Body • This body will earn from administration and will also receive a fixed share of state tax given to the government.
  5. 5. Framework of proposed Commissioning Body Review Amendments and negotiations Initial Report Regular Quality Checks (site visit) Final Report Project Tested and Verified Agency gets the predefined percentage of state tax Administration gets the amount meant for C.A. Project for a new flyover approved Project given to a govt. agency e.g. HUDA As per the contract document checks at various stages Of construction Copy of proposal sent Public representative will verify the project and will give the green signal for payment.
  6. 6. Integrated Public Services Common Utility Duct Metro Tunnel Earth Air Tunnel A proposal for new upcoming cities, town centers and sub metros to integrate all the public services. Aimed at reducing the government expenditure on construction of various services separately. It also proposes to integrate transport(metro) with services for new metro cities resulting in further cost reduction. Three major components of this integrated public services plan are : Metro Tunnel, Common Utility Duct, Earth Air Tunnel
  7. 7. Common Utility Duct • A common utility duct, sometimes called a common utility conduit, is any structure – above, on, or below ground – that carries more than two types of public utility lines. However, the phrase often refers specifically to underground utility tunnels. Traditional setting and maintenance Setting and maintenance in Common Duct Services that can be housed in this common utility duct : Optical fiber cables Electric supply cables Water supply lines Telephone cables Sewer pipelines Benefit for Utility agencies Benefit for Road authority Benefit for the Public 1.Saving in burying and maintenance 2.Easing the utility renewing 3.Improvement of transmission quality 4.Lengthen the utility lifetime 5.Easing the checking and inspection 1.Saving in road maintenance 2.Extension of road lifetime 3.Maintain traffic safety 4.Promote government image 1.Less road excavation, improve life quality 2.Improve city appearance 3.Better traffic condition Benefits of common utility duct :
  8. 8. Benefits of Earth Air Tunnel : • Air Tunnel preferably 20-25 m deep as temperature is usually 24C. • Cost of Tunnel partially borne by land proprietors who in turn will receive cool air. • Natural air will be fed to the tunnel at some points and will be circulated underground through tunnel to make it cool. Earth Air Tunnel Benefit for proprietor Benefit for Government Benefit for the Public 1.More power saving 2.Earning of carbon credits, LEED and GRIHA ratings 3.No bothering for maintenance 1.Reduction in cost 2.Partial investment required as proprietor is also investing 3.Promote government image 1.Less pollution as no CFCs are released 2.Improve city appearance 3.Conventional AC system not required Earth Air Tunnel
  9. 9. Proposed Solid Waste Treatment Plan • We propose a new law to be passed which enforces industries to recycle/reuse a certain amount (preferably 60-70%) of waste products they produce. • To help the industries, a new Recycling Agency which will be responsible for recycling of waste products. • It will take membership fees from each industry who wants to enroll in its plan.. • • Currently, different types of solid waste streams in the city, including municipal waste, biomedical waste, electronic waste are all mixed. • The existing landfills are almost full and they need to be closed in a scientific manner • Industries are insensitive towards recycle and reuse of their industrial waste Why this plan ? What is this plan ? Functions of Commissioning Body • The agency with collaboration of municipal corporation will collect wastes from pickup points and will segregate specially marked waste products of their client industries and normal domestic waste. • After recycling, reusable products will be sent back to the clients according to their amount of waste received and the remaining products will be sold to earn profit.
  10. 10. Proposed Solid Waste Treatment Plan Law enforced Sign contract Waste collection Reusable Products Marked waste of client industries Usual household waste Benefits of this plan : Benefit for Industry Benefit for Government Benefit for the Recycling Agency 1.Regulation of law without any problem. 2.Earn recognition for being eco-friendly industry 3.Recycled products would reduce the expense for new ones. 1.Reduction in pollution 2.Promote government image 3.Recycling Agency would be responsible for recycling process. 1.Generate employment 2.Improve city appearance 3.Profit earning by selling domestic recycled products.
