CEPT University Launches New Book on Urban Planning

| Updated: April 8, 2024 21:22

CEPT University Press today unveiled a new book titled ‘Planning for India’s Urbanisation’ authored by Vidyadhar K. Phatak, one of the country’s leading practitioners and thinkers in Urban Planning. The launch event saw participation from practising planners, students, faculty members, alumni and other members of the CEPT community.

The book is a compilation of essays penned over two decades, encapsulating Phatak’s extensive experience of over fifty years in public service, consulting and academia. His unique perspective, shaped by his operational role in the planning of the Mumbai Metropolitan area and subsequent roles as a researcher and academic, lends the essays a depth of insight.

The book explores four main themes: urbanization and its challenges, the crucial role of land in planning and financing development, urban housing, and planning a metropolis. The essays delve into urban issues in the post-liberalisation era, planning standards, land and housing, and the interplay between regulatory planning practices and their impact on markets, particularly housing supply and demand.
