Author Name: Shruti Desai | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

Development is a very important phenomenon for humankind in general. For successful development of any kind, either in general of a class person or property or society, a scheme of development must be formulated and implemented by applying an organized and calculative method in compliance with the rules and regulations enacted by the legislation from time to time. The dictionary meaning of the word ‘development’ means ‘change’; when someone or something grows and becomes more advanced, to make, to start, to build, buildings, etc. The parliament, therefore, needs to implement proper development-related laws through systematic planning.

The present rules aim to achieve the same. Readers and the common man will have to bear in mind that more than 65% of the area on the globe is covered by water, and for the same reasons, every country should enact their own rules for development in accordance with the environment, natural resources and availability of land. In India, the best examples of planned development are the Union Territory of Chandigarh and the Juhu Vile Parle Development Scheme in Mumbai. The book aims to provide literature and information on the subject only from the legal point of view, although the subject is technical and on several occasions, the Hon’ble Court was required to interpret the provisions of the rules in its legal contest.

In this duly amended, up-to-date book, the author has given complete circulars, orders and an appendix.

The present book is in four volumes.
