The scope of professional practice in planning has now become very vast-in addition to traditional land-use planning at urban, regional and national levels, it includes development management; real-estate development; advice, arbitration and legal services; education and training; and research.
In this book, Dr Kulshrestha provides a detailed study of this profession in India, covering such aspects as ethics; scope of work in public, private and joint sectors; procedures for procuring consultancy, engaging contractors, and entering into agreements; calculation of fee charged for rendering the service; establishing offices in India and abroad; and managing personnel.
The book presents a comprehensive study to the subject of urban and regional planning in India, detailing the changing role of spatial planners and their professional requirements, and in that sense is a complete guide for those working in the spatial-planning field or aspiring to get into it.
A handbook for professional practice...helpful for both training and learning purposes...the contents of the book are well-communicated and are of good quality...undoubtedly a good repository for the library section on planning and management.
