Abstract

Bombay has shown how to build the enormous potential in industrial production and almost became one of the country’s backbones of industries and economy. However, concentration of industries and industrialization have also left many demands on city’s infrastructure and housing, and pressure began to mount on making the city inhabitable through shifting of industries to the outskirts. In the subsequent periods, ‘decongestion’ policies were laid down in the era of first regional master plan proposed both industrial as well as population decongestion, at a time when the population rise and industrialization were on move. This paper traces the changes in industrial planning and policy in Mumbai that have some important implications for the development of industrial land in cities.

Keywords: industrial land, land use policy, plan proposals, industial planning
