Description of "Growing Towns In India"

India is among the fast-growing economies of this era. Its recent rapid growth has drawn much attention to its technology sector. Much of India's growth and growth potential, however, is beyond this sector and has been intertwined with the move of rural population to urban centers. This book explores urbanization of the fast-growing low-skill, low-wage rural population in India.

It focuses on broad physical planning of growing towns for the newly arrived populations taking into account emerging economic, social and technological developments and the likely patterns of urban growth. It explores planning issues across multiple sectors during periods of incubation as well as transition during growth. The driving goal of this exploration is the accommodation of rural migrants into an urban market economy, and their gradual adaptation to a substantially different social, economic and cultural life without dislocation or isolation.
