India’s 7936 cities and towns with 377 million urban populations provide 60 per cent of the GDP and 70 per cent of the jobs. However, the lack of planning has resulted in poor urban infrastructure services, housing, transport and environment. To meet these challenges, it is necessary to understand the history, principles, concepts and practices of planning as an interdisciplinary subject. The book Urban and Regional Planning: A Practical Guide provides a pathway that aligns with the socio-economic, environmental and technological aspects. Written in a simple language with several illustrations, the book is a comprehensive guide for the students and practitioners of planning, architecture and engineering.
