The pics are by Arvind Krishnan who has an Incredible India gallery at
http://gallery42131.fotopic.net/.

Dwarka is one of the many subcities/townships that are being developed in the National Capital Region.


I think the first set of pictures is from 2003.

Much better than the slums! Indians are very smart and India needs to catch up!
Whoa!!!! That is a lot of buildings. Too bad they are not that tall.
Hmm... lots of construction, and lots of open plots yet to be built on. Nice gallery, but I wish the pics were better quality. :(
Hmm... are these new suburbs? IMO, India's definately trying to modernize, but no where does this come close to looking as nice as what China's doing.

This is an example of what we call co-operative housing societies. People of similar age group, friends, similar income levels get together and form a society. They request for land in areas alloted for co-op development. If land allotment is approved, they pool their funds/loans, hire architects, contractors to get the buildings done. The cost is lower than buying an apartment from private developers. There is nothing fancy about these developments. There is also a lot of development by DDA mostly targeted to meet affordable accomomodation. [For fancier stuff, private developers are the way to go.]

The proposed population to be accomodated is 1 million.

These are low to middle income housing, not the most glitzy developments. China has plenty of these types of construction too. :|
