141 - 150
This paper analyses the spatial plan/landuse plan of Bangalore for its effectiveness in bringing about social inclusion. The concept of social inclusion has been broadly based on the framework of Amartya Sen’s theory of entitlement. Hence the paper adapts the definition of social inclusion as a function of access to social activities like employment, education, healthcare and leisure. Accessibility as a function of access to jobs is chosen as the indicator for evaluating social inclusion. The spatial plan of Bangalore, the Revised Master Plan 2015 (prepared in 2007) has been discussed here. The metropolitan regions plan has been evaluated at the composite level to arrive at appropriate landuse planning policy responses for social inclusion.
