  3. 3. •The city founded by Sultan Ahmad Shah in 1411 AD, lies on the banks of the Sabarmati river •The historic city of Ahmedabad is amongst the major metropolitan cities in India. It's a city where history gently rubs its shoulders with modernity. •The city is the administrative headquarter of Ahmedabad district and is the judicial capital of Gujarat as the Gujarat High Court is located here. With a population of more than 5.8 million and an extended population of 6.3 million, it is the fifth largest city and seventh largest metropolitan area of India. With the increasing opportunities for trade and commerce and as a center for higher education, this heavy growth continues.
  4. 4. Ahmedabad :at a glance :- •Year of Establishment: 1411 A.D. •Commencement of the municipal works by ‘Town wall fund committee’: 1834. •Establishment of Municipality-1858. •Establishment of Municipal Corporation - 1950. •Area of the city: 464.16 sq. km. • Literacy Rate 73.38%, 78.34 %( Male), 67.72 %( Female) •Religion (in %) 84.6 (Hindu), 2.9 (Jain), 11.4 (Muslim), 0.7 (Christian) •Official Language-Gujarati, Hindi. •Languages spoken Gujarati, Hindi, English
  5. 5. The city is situated on the western side of India. The city is located in a sandy and dry area. Except for the small hills of Thaltej-Jodhpur Tekra, the entire city is almost flat. Since, Ahmedabad lies on the western side in the state of Gujarat, which is basically a desert area; it experiences extreme type of climate. GEOGRAPHY The Sabarmati bifurcates the city into eastern and western parts, connected by nine bridges, two of which were constructed after independence. Though the river is perennial, it gets dried up in the summer, leaving only a small stream of water flowing. There are 2 main lakes located in the city limits – the Kankaria lake, and the Vastapur lake. Kankaria lake, located in Maninagar, is an artificial lake developed by Qutb-ud-din Aybak in 1451.

  7. 7. Ahmedabad became capital of the newly formed Gujarat State in the year1960 but a new capital was established at Gandhinagar in 1970 which is 32km away from Ahmedabad. The District is surrounded on the north by Mehsana and Gandhinagar district, on the South by Gulf of Cambay and Bhavnagar district, on the East by Kheda district and on the West by Surendranagar district. Distances •New Delhi - 1025 Km. •Mumbai - 545 Km. •Vadodara - 110 Km. •Surat - 280 Km. •Rajkot - 225 Km. •Bhuj - 395 Km.
  8. 8. Ahmedabad being one of the most important cities of India is well connected by air, rail and road. By Road Ahmedabad has a good network of roads also. National highways connect cities like Vadodara, Rajkot, Jamnagar and Mumbai. The Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) runs express and luxury deluxe buses to the neighboring towns and cities. One can reach the city by taxi from nearby cities. CONNECTIVITY By Air The Ahmedabad Airport is just 10 kms from downtown Ashram Road area. It functions for both domestic and international purpose. Domestic flights on Air India, Indian Airlines, Jet Airways and Gujarat Airways are available for Delhi,Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Jaipur and several other destinations inside the country.
  9. 9. Reference: http://www.ahmedabadonline.in By Rail Ahmedabad has a well maintained railway network connected to important destinations of the country. Ahmedabad railway station is the largest railway station in the state of Gujarat. Various express and super fast trains are available between Ahmedabad and important cities of the country.
  10. 10. The history of Ahmedabad stretches as far back as in the 11th century and linking it self with old towns of Ashaval and Karnavati about 1000 years ago. In the year 1411 AD, Sultan Ahmed Shah built citadel and encouraged development of trade and commerce. In 1456 AD, an enclosing wall was constructed defining a periphery to the city-limits. The city within this wall got structured into wards, organized by 12 main roads each terminating at a gate in the wall. In 1487, Mahmud Begada, the grandson of Ahmed Shah, fortified the city with an outer wall 10 km (6.2 mi) in circumference and consisting of twelve gates, 189 bastions and over 6,000 battlements. HISTORY AND ORIGIN OF AHMEDABAD
  12. 12. With the coming of the railway around 1860, development began to spill over (beyond the city-limits) towards the northeast and southeast of the walled city. The first textile mill was started in 1861 here by Ranchhodlal Chhotalal. This also resulted in the industrial and residential development across the western side of Sabarmati River. Construction of 5 bridges – Ellis Bridge, Gandhi Bridge, Sardar Patel Bridge, the Nehru Bridge and the Subhash Bridge accelerated this development. But by and large the industrial development has remained concentrated on the eastern side and the walled city has continued to grow in density due to incorporation of fringe areas into the city limits. The city municipality was given the status of Municipal Corporation in 1950 when the city started growing rapidly eastwards and southwards. In the later part of the century, the western part has developed rapidly. The city is governed by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC), established in July 1950.
  13. 13. The heritage resources in Ahmedabad can be looked at following three distinct levels: a. The entirety of the walled city: ASI has a total of 52 Indo-Islamic monuments under protection. In addition, there are many Hindu and Jain temples, the Gaekwad’s Haveli enclave of Maratha period and several other institutional buildings and bungalows of the Colonial period. At the moment, these structures are in a state of disrepair except for the few Jain temples taken care of by the Jain community. The City Wall and its Gates are equally in dilapidated condition. b. The pols which comprise it: The grouping of houses into pols is typical of Gujarat and especially of Ahmedabad. Destruction and de-structuring caused by new buildings, the invasion of business and traffic point to a worrisome future for the pols. c. The individual houses: The houses of Ahmedabad were traditionally built of carved wood and brickwork characterized by low, single family units, of which only some 10,000 survive now. The gradual progression of the model gave way to the transplantation of forms, which were totally foreign to local traditions. The apartment buildings are of a mediocre quality heralding a decline in the know-how and technique. HERITAGE
  14. 14. Realizing the acute need for a holistic approach to the conservation and preservation of this valuable heritage resource, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) with assistance from CRUTA Foundation set up a heritage cell in 1996. Its main objectives are to create basic awareness amongst the citizens, promote traditional built forms, support participatory action programmes and to co-ordinate efforts of different disciplines, stakeholders and authorities. It is an advisory board to AMC essentially assisting the Corporation in its capacity building.

  30. 30. AHMEDABAD URBAN AGGLOMERATION (AUA) The Greater Ahmedabad Urban agglomeration is an amalgam covering an area of about 4200 sq. Km is an amalgam of (Refer Map-2-1). The map reveals: 1. An area of 190 square kilometers is under the jurisdiction of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC), and 2. 150 villages in the periphery of the city are under the jurisdiction of Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA), 3. 9 Municipalities in the periphery of the city are under the jurisdiction of Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA), 4. Gandhinagar and the surrounding villages, 5. Chatral, Bopal and other surrounding villages adjoining AUDA limits .
  31. 31. Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) • AUDA was constituted under the Gujarat Town Planning and Urban Development Act, 1976 in 1978 to regulate and monitor the development in the periphery of the Corporation limits and the adjoining 300 villages and 9 municipalities. • The major function of the authority is to undertake the preparation of the development plan, Town planning schemes, regulate the development and collect the development charges in the area of its jurisdiction • In addition to the area falling under AMC’s limit, it also include 107 settlements around it, 4 towns , 103 villages of Ahmedabad district. The expansion of AUDA comes of 129465 hectares (129465 sq km) area which include Ahmedabad city (municipal corporation) of 44900 hectares.
  32. 32. Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) Ahmedabad municipal Corporation (AMC) was established in year 1950 and this department manages all the administration and the construction works for the city of Ahmedabad. The 190.84 sq km area within the AMC limits consists of: 1. The traditional city center within the fort walls with relatively high- density development, large concentration of commercial activities and narrow streets, 2. The eastern sector accommodating large and small industries and low income residential areas, and 3. A well planned western sector with wide roads accommodating major institutions and high-income residential areas.
  33. 33. LANDUSE
  34. 34. INTRODUCTION • Spatial arrangements of land uses determine the population distribution and infrastructure demand patterns in the city. • This section briefly describes the land use patterns in the city. • The Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) is responsible for land use planning within its jurisdictional limits.
  35. 35. LAND USE IN AUDA AREA • Of the total AUDA area of 1294.65 sq. km, nearly 50 percent is built up. Water bodies and wastelands cover 12 percent and 17 percent of area respectively. Industries cover 9 percent of the area . • As per the State Government Policy, no major industrial development within 24 kms of AMC limit is permitted in AUDA area. Considering existing development conditions a certain area for industrial use is designated for light industry as well as for general industry, along with existing industries at Vatwa, Naroda and Odhav (all lying within AMC), which forms nearly 10.38 percent. SOURCE : CITY DEVELOPMENT PLAN AHMEDABAD 2006-2012
  37. 37. LAND USE IN CITY AREA As per existing land use (1997), more than one third (36%) of the total area is under residential use, followed by 15 percent of the area under the industries. Large tracts of land (23.44%) are lying vacant, mostly in the newly acquired area of the AMC. Only 9.5 percent of the total area is under transportation network as against the norm of 15-18 per cent. as specified by UDPFI norms. SOURCE : CITY DEVELOPMENT PLAN AHMEDABAD 2006-2012
  40. 40. VARIOUS AMENDMENTS IN PROPOSED LAND USE PLAN • There will be separate local area plans for central business district (CBD), affordable housing zone, and transit-oriented development zone. • The development plan has also moved 134 hectares in Nana Chiloda from general agriculture zone to residential zone-2. This is to facilitate housing under Gujarat Rural Housing Development Board. • In Kathwada, keeping in the mind the expanding Kathwada-GIDC limits, the Auda has transferred 324 hectares from agriculture zone to industrial zone. • In Shela, the Auda has earmarked space for a sewage treatment plant near Enasani village. • In Kamodh village a total of 8.54 hectares has been reserved for a waste-pumping site and 27 hectares for a sewage treatment plant.
  42. 42. TRANSPORT
  44. 44. Traffic Characteristics • Infrastructure - Circular and concentrated around walled city/CBD by five ring and seventeen radial roads. • Movement- West To East in the Morning and East to West in the Evenings. • Major transport terminals (Railway stations, Airport) are situated on radial roads.
  45. 45. • The city transportation system is predominantly dependent on roadway systems • The greater Ahmedabad area roadway system is approximately 3478 Kms. ROADS Distribution of Roads by Width (No. of lanes) • Other than the NHAI AMC and AUDA, are responsible for developing, operating and maintaining road infrastructure

  52. 52. AHMEDABAD BRTS • Dedicated central lanes the interference from the traffic was minimised • Location of Bus stops about 400 metres beyond crossroads so queues of buses do not create jams • increased bus frequencies reduced the waiting period to 2 minutes during peak hours and 8-10 minutes during off-peak hours.
  54. 54. PARKING • On-street parking reduces the effective carriage way of roads observed along the major corridors, in the old city area and the public parking places near the ST Bus stand, commercial centres. • Parking places are highly inadequate for the high vehicular population in the city

  56. 56. Total number of vehicle registered and decadal vehicular growth pattern in India, Gujarat and Ahmedabad The annual growth rate of the vehicular population of Gujarat is even higher than the national growth rate because the state economy has been continuously doing better than many other states for the past many decades.  Share of Gujarat in total no. Of vehicle in country is continuously increasing ,whereas that of Ahmedabad in Gujrat is decreaseing. Currently vehicles are growing at the annual rate of 13%, which is quite high and indicates towards a greater vehicular population in the future.

  57. 57. Total motor vehicle growth and growth of two/three wheelers and AMTS buses in Ahmedabad (1961-2001) The growth rate of two wheelers was the highest in the 1970’s and in 1980’s because of three possible reasons. • A large number of lower middle class and middle class population supported by favourable income levels. • Economic liberalisation and automobile revolution in the country. • The stagnation of Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service. A large number of autorickshaws were registered in neighbouring districts and being operated in Ahmedabad city. Source: Transport Department, Gujarat, Ahmedabad, 2004

  60. 60. Slums and housing: The slums in Gujarat are far worse than the average Indian slum. The problem is particularly acute in Ahmedabad, with approximately 41 percent of the city’s population residing in informal settlements that are characterized by overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, insecure tenure and a high level of public health risk.” A slum is defined as a compact area with a collection of poorly built tenements, mostly of a temporary nature, crowded together and usually with inadequate sanitary and drinking water facilities in unhygienic conditions. Ahmedabad has about 44 per cent of the total housing units in the AMC region, with 54.8 per cent of the total dwelling units in the category of chawls and slums. It accounts for 75 per cent of the chawl units and 47 per cent of the slum units in the city. There are two dominant types of low-income residential areas found in the city: chawls residential units, originally built in the mill premises for workers, and slums that represent illegal occupation of marginal areas of the city. The latter typically lack facilities and basic amenities and are found along riverfronts, in low-lying areas, on vacant private or government land.
  61. 61. Tenure patterns and percentages are unclear but are closely related to the possession of a ration card (71 to 75 per cent of households) and/or an AMC photo pass (2.5 to 10 per cent of households). Close to 28 per cent had neither and their tenure status remains undefined. These figures roughly appear to reflect the following percentages: owner (70 per cent), renter (about 20 per cent) and undefined (8 per cent). . It adds that the areas occupied by slums have "barely increased by 2%" over 10 years while the slum population has increased by 18%, implying a "densification of existing slums".

  67. 67. •The AMC had still failed to fully include many of the new insights in their overall urban planning. It is, in particular, their unwillingness to grant security of tenure for periods of longer than 10 years that sends out strong negative signals. •Furthermore, the labyrinth of regulatory mechanisms and the complex procedures of the urban planning process have not helped the poor either. • Although the AMC has not executed wholesale slum demolitions, public housing agencies have not provided citylevel shelter programmes for the poor. INFERENCES
  68. 68. Water Supply •In Ahmedabad organized piped water supply starts in year of 1891 by Dudheshwar water tank constructed on eastern riverbank of Sabarmati River. •Due to non-availability of Regular water after late 50’ in the Sabarmati River the city started depending on the ground water sources.
  69. 69. Water Sources The water supply needs of Ahmedabad city are presently met from three sources • Surface water from Raska. • French well in Sabarmati River. • By Intakewell constructed in River Sabarmati. Sources of Water Supply
  70. 70. Water Supply, Storage and Transmission • There are three water supply zones within AMC: Central, Eastern and Western. Water is supplied from Dudheshwar Water Works to the Central Transmission Mains while the Kotarpur Water Works supplies to the distribution stations in the three zones.
  71. 71. Water Supply Network
  72. 72. Sewerage System • In Ahmedabad, an organized sewerage system started 1890 when an underground sewer line and temporary pumping station were constructed in Khadia ward outside Astodia Gate. • Presently, around 75 percent of the municipal area is covered by 1384 km long sewerage network. There are 43 Sewage Pumping Stations, of which 8 are main Sewage pumping stations.
  73. 73. Sewerage Network
  74. 74. Zone wise Drainage Pumping Stations • At present, Ahmedabad generates about 500 MLD of sewage of which about 168 MLD is discharged into River Sabarmati without treatment through storm water outlets.
  75. 75. Treatment facilities • There are two sewage treatment plants • Pirana 180 mLd • Vasana 180 mLd • recently two sewage treatment plants (UASB) of capacity 106 MLD and 126 mLd at Pirana (old) and Vasana (old) respectively were commissioned as a part of Sabarmati river action plan.
  76. 76. Storm Water Drainage • Storm water drains in the city cover only 23% of the roads in the city. • There are three types of drains laid in the city-  RCC pipes,  Box type drains  arch drains. • These storm water drains discharge storm water into River Sabarmati at 42 locations, of which currently only 27 locations are functional.
  77. 77. Existing Storm Water Drainage
  78. 78. Issues • Negligence of natural drainage in the growth and development of Ahmedabad city has led to problems of water logging and flooding during the monsoons. • The storm water drains cover only 23% of the roads. • water drains: Of the 36 outlets into the river Sabarmati, 9 outlets are blocked.
  79. 79. Solid Waste Management • Solid Waste collection and disposal in Ahmedabad is being carried out by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation as an obligatory function. The total waste generated in the city is of the order of 2100 tonnes per day • Waste collected from the city is disposed at 84 ha, Pirana land fill site approximately 22 kmaway from the farthest end on Western side and 18 km away from the farthest point oneastern side, near Narol- Sarkhej Octroi Checkpost.
  80. 80. Solid Waste Management
  82. 82. There are altogether 1287 primary schools in Ahmedabad and 583 Higher Secondary Schools. AMC is presently running 112 preprimary and 563 primary schools . It provides free textbooks to all students, and scholarships to students belonging to SC/ST/OBC. EDUCATION FACILITIES
  83. 83. There are additional 715 primary schools run by the private, having approx. 500 students. There are 91 colleges in the city. When analysed with respect to the UDPFI standards, Ahmedabad was found to be well endowed and far advanced in terms of educational facilities.
  84. 84. Ahmedabad is proud of its scientific research, educational and philanthropic institutions. Because of its internationally recognised educational institutions such as IIMA, NID, CEPT and NIRMA University, the city has emerged as an important educational hub.

  86. 86. The Open Spaces in Ahmedabad are of five types: Open, Garden, Playground, Green belts and Recreational Area. A total of 129 ha are under open spaces in the entire city. This translates to 0.37sq.m area per person as against a specified standard of 8-10sq.m per person (UDPFI Guidelines) RECREATIONAL FACILITIES
  87. 87. Over 40 percent of the open spaces lie in the Western Zone. There are no recreational areas and green belts in southern and Central Zones. Most of the open spaces are in the form of gardens. In all the five zones the per capita open space works out to be less than 0.7 sq.m. There seems to be major shortfall in terms of open green areas. There are about 100 parks in the city of Ahmedabad. Private agencies like Mother Dairy,Amul and Dairy Den work on leasehold basis with the Corporation for the development and maintenance of these parks. In turn, they grim through their profit margins from advertisements and sale of their products. In the periphery as part of new planning, AUDA has developed 50 parks over 27 hactares.
