Background Paper on Issues related to Land Economics

This paper focuses on the implications of various land use policies being adopted in India with special reference to Delhi and the NCR region. It examines how far the economic reforms coupled with several changes in land use policies have helped spread development to neighbouring areas surrounding Delhi such as the Central National Capital Region (CNCR) and other National Capital Region (NCR) areas. This has been reviewed in light of how successful these policies have been in overcoming the housing shortage and easing the overburdened infrastructure of Delhi.
