Town and cities in India are undergoing continuous physical expansion and densification along with growth in urban population. Inner cores of many cities have older areas that require redevelopment to accommodate the present needs of the city. One of the key requirements is greater availability of land for public use like roads and other open spaces. Redevelopment for these areas can be undertaken by preparing a Local Area Plan.

A large part of city expansion takes place on urban fringes in an unplanned way. In such a scenario, agricultural plots with haphazard geometry are converted to urban use and little attention is paid to provision of urban infrastructure. Planned urban expansion can be provided through the Town Planning Scheme (Land Readjustment) mechanism wherein existing agricultural plots are merged and redistributed in a planned way after making deductions for street RoW and land for public uses. The urban infrastructure is financed by Value Capture Financing like betterment charges and sale of reserved plots.

The proposed sub-scheme intends to focus on these three vital issues; (i) Inner City Redevelopment through Local Area Plans, (ii) Planned Urban Expansion through Town Planning Scheme and (iii) ensuring training and capacity building of planners at the local level.

The last date of submission is 31st May, 2017

Sir
Please ensure sewage treatment plants and solid waste treatment at source by converting waste in to fertilizer are implemented by constricting mini treatment plants at the locality itself instead of mega plants which increases cost and risk. Ensure active participation and involvement of Residents Associations and people's at the locality for planning, construction and maintenance as they are the end users.

Sir, we are running after Smart Cities & AMRUT cities, but we have to preserve our forest, Please do not destroy our trees or forest for these cities. We have to only declare a city to a smart city if the city has natural or man made forest. without surrounding forest a city cannot be Smart City. It is quite impossible to build a city without river & forest. without river & forest all cities will be empty within 100 years.

For any construction(roads/ buildings etc) envisaged by any private/ public firm ,govt needs to formulate a number of trees that needs to be mandatorily planted by them and maintained for at least 5 years This is to ensure the trees will be looked after is healthy. The type of trees can be desiccated by a committee by considering the topography and climate of the region. Drinking water outlet can be kept and different places in the city and maintained so that its not tampered with or misused.

in continuation with my earlier comment i would like to point out that since the road network will be improved all over the country, the most likely fall out is that many trees will have to be cut / replanted or translocated. When any road (NH/SH/ internal roads are being envisaged government needs to look into planting saplings and trees not necessarily on the same stretch but any where in the vicinity so that by the time the road or flyover is completed the trees would be grown

I live in thane and over the last two to three year seeing a massive work done in improving the road network in thane I would like to suggest that as many of the roads are very wide and in the the process of completion we should include cycling tracks and implement road safety. This will help us in reducing carbon footprint and encourage the citizens to have a very healthy lifestyle. Once a week -cycle for work and incentives like food coupons etc can be given by the corporates and offices.

In India, Cities are not planned on long term basis. We must design the city with at least 25 years basis. Taking into consideration of growing population with the things required to fulfill their demands in the future like water resources, energy needs, solid waste management, Industry, Pollution created, Transportation and many more key factors.
