Small Towns and Decentralisation in India : Urban Local Bodies in the Making (Hardcover) (Remi De
About this item
This book examines the decentralisation reforms that took place in India within the framework of the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act of 1992. The analysis specifically focuses on an urban environment too often overlooked by researchers and public authorities, namely, that of small towns. These towns are of vital importance as this is where the bulk of future urban development will take place, involving both rural exodus and urbanisation. But they seem to have only marginally benefited from reforms introduced since the 1990s and need to be taken into account more effectively by urban policy makers. Almost 20 years after the launch of decentralisation programmes in India, very little is known about their impact on small towns. This book includes extensive primary data about political, technical and financial municipal issues in small towns of northern India and, therefore, provides a better understanding of peri-urban India to students, researchers, and urban planners.
