Updated: February 10 2015 3:14 am The contagion of industrial townships is not new Gujarat tops with 26 of them Related News As India is declared to be marching to the city the question looming large is whether there is a system of governance that will enable or deflect this march The Constitution (74th Amendment) Act (74th CAA) was intended to provide an umbrella of arrangements for taking care of many of the problems However under that canopy several contradictions abound Here are a few snapshots In September last year the Supreme Court asked the Jharkhand government to let the court know whether Tatanagar wanted industrial township status or a representative municipality Political parties resident welfare associations and civil society in unison opted for company township status instead of a municipality The idea of allowing an industrial township in lieu of a municipality is itself the result of a loophole clause introduced at the last minute as a proviso to Article 243 Q after the joint select committee’s report was received and the bill was being taken up for clause-by-clause consideration Tatanagar may be a favoured township but that is not all of Jamshedpur It is surrounded by Adityapur Mango Jugsalai and other settlements that suffer from all the deficiencies of an urban area though several employees of TISCO and related industries live there The contagion of industrial townships is not new Gujarat tops with 26 of them The entire management of these townships is by a small board of industrialists and nominees of the government exercising executive powers At one time the sarpanches of the panchayats in the area were included but they have since been excluded In Maharashtra the Town and Country Planning Act was amended in May 2008 to confer sovereign powers of planning and regulation on these boards Even Marxist-ruled West Bengal was not above taking a portion of the existing Bidhannagar municipality and constituting the Nabadiganta Industrial Township just for Wipro and Infosys The Indian Census makes a distinction between statutory towns that are official and Census Towns which fulfil urban characteristics but are not officially declared towns The 2011 Census reports as many as 2553 Census Towns and their share of population is about 144 per cent Many of these Census Towns have no desire to become urban as they stand to lose the large quantum of funding under various programmes of rural development including MGNREGA Where municipal structures are provided the elected political leaders have no executive authority and they cannot be held politically accountable The terms of mayors vary from one to two years in many states and in some up to five years The election procedure alternates between direct and indirect elections in different states and frequently changes as shown by Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh recently If the government feels that bureaucrats and parastatals can do a better job it should be candid about it and give up all pretences of elected self-government As for metropolitan areas whatever may be the extent of crowding dysfunctional infrastructure and other irritations it is these areas surrounding the core cities that are expanding and continue to attract jobs and people The five largest metropolitan areas contribute more than 10 per cent to the country’s economy These multi-municipal areas are trapped in the sterile vertical arrangement of the Union the state and the municipalities whereas what is needed is a forum for the horizontal coordination of planning and development The metropolitan planning committee envisaged under the 74th CAA as a coordinating platform has been a non-starter because of its defective composition The boundaries of individual towns and cities are changed casually without much thinking Merger bifurcation and trifurcation of municipal jurisdictions are done without much forethought and for perceived political advantages such as in Delhi and Bangalore and now reportedly in Hyderabad These snapshots present some of the contradictions of urban India which is a site for social and economic growth At the core of this quandary is the issue of the political status of the city At the national and state levels the powers and political settlements are largely known but when it comes to local bodies be they urban or rural the Centre and the state join in treating them as subservient dependencies The new Central government is visualising a Smart plan for our citiesSmart is a good approach for planning building and running basic services but it is not an answer to the challenge of urban growth or urban governance Here again the role of local bodies is not clear Statements from political leaders from time to time indicate that local bodies are excluded almost by definition because they are not considered smart enough for “Smart Cities” All these contradictions abound and are flourishing while the 74th CAA hangs above them all like a tent-house ceiling from which many things are hung If the political spectrum does not realise these contradictions and decides what it wants to do the enfeebled structure of urban governance will collapse under their weight The country’s march to the city will then be merely demographic Sivaramakrishnan is chairman and Joshi researcher Centre for Policy Research Delhi For all the latest

photo by Praveen Khanna) Related News By: Irfan Habib When the news came of Bipan Chandra’s passing away on the morning of August 30 my mind went back to an afternoon in a fly-ridden tea shop at Aligarh where our long friendship began 55 years ago I was instantly drawn to him for his commitment to the cause he had taken up (a journal at the time) his infectious enthusiasm and a quite irrepressible sense of humour Born in 1928 in Kangra Himachal Pradesh Bipan Chandra was quite the mature scholar at the time we met having studied at the Forman Christian College Lahore and then at Stanford University US where he was harried he told me by Senator Joseph McCarthy and his crew for Bipan had decidedly leftist views He was now teaching at Hindu College Delhi While he conscientiously performed his duties as a teacher and pursued relentlessly the cause of his journal Enquiry he carried out an astonishingly massive amount of research that resulted in his Rise and Growth of Economic Nationalism in India 1880-1905 published in 1966 This work brilliantly illuminated a neglected aspect of early Indian nationalism and is plainly a great achievement Given his approach Bipan was naturally impatient of the search for individual motivations in the national movement by the post-1947 historians of the Cambridge School as well as of the attempts to refute the nationalist case against an exploitative Britain He penned a fiery article in 1968 against Morris D Morris an American scholar who had doubted the reality of de-industrialisation under British rule Bipan became increasingly concerned with the rising tide of communalism sharply criticising both its Hindu and Muslim variants He carried out surveys of texts used in religious and quasi-religious schools This concern also led him I believe to focus on writing for a popular readership Many of his essays are for the general reader The most outstanding work of this genre is his “Modern India” an NCERT textbook published in the late 1970s for secondary schools It manages to cover within a limited size almost all aspects of modern Indian history It ran into several editions and was republished in 2012 He also undertook with his colleagues more detailed studies of the national movement and of India since Independence These efforts resulted in two major works edited by him India’s Struggle for Independence (1989) and India Since Independence (1998) For reasons I could never fully understand he turned increasingly critical of the Left after the 1970s as was revealed in a whole volume he edited in 1983 But characteristically he never let this come in the way of our friendship or bar cooperation between us in other fields Bipan Chandra was an enormously popular teacher as one might expect He became professor at Jawaharlal Nehru University New Delhi soon after it was established After his retirement in 1993 JNU made him professor emeritus From 2004 to 2012 he was chairman of the National Book Trust in which work he showed the same zeal and drive as he did in everything else (By constant telephoning he made me write a book on medieval India within a set time-frame) His later years were marred by ill-health The death of his gracious wife Usha some years ago was a great blow to him It was a blow to my wife Sayera and me as well since Usha and Bipan had always treated us as members of the family One can now only offer condolences to the two sons Bikash and Barun they have left behind The writer is professor emeritus at Aligarh Muslim University For all the latest Opinion
