Urban and Regional Planning in India
A Handbook for Professional Practice

First Edition

August 2012 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Urban and Regional Planning in India refers to processes and procedures for and manner of conducting spatial planning and development activities. The scope of professional practice in planning has now become very vast—in addition to traditional land use planning at urban, regional and national levels, it also includes development management; real estate development; advice, arbitration and legal services; education and training; and research. The procedures for each of these practices are different in public and private sectors.

Dr. Kulshrestha provides a detailed study of professional practice in the field of urban and regional planning in India, covering such aspects as ethics; scope of work in public, private and joint sectors; procedures for procuring consultancy, engaging contractors, and entering into agreements; calculation of fee charged for rendering the service; establishing offices in India and abroad; and managing personnel.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment to the subject of urban and regional planning in India, detailing the changing role of spatial planners and their professional requirements, and in this sense is a complete guide for those working in the spatial planning field or aspiring to get into the profession.
