Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper reviews the planning and city building processes in Delhi in three periods : the imperial Mughal, the imperial British and the post-Independence. In the last period, the efforts have been focussed on providing housing to people of medium and high income groups. The housing needs of the poor have been met by rapid growth of slums. The paper recommends revival of metropolitan and regional planning for direction of growth of the conurbation to 2010
