And then mentions Indus Valley urban planning towards the end:
Largely to circumvent this urban planning failure across the city geography, the special economic zones (SEZs) in India were conceptualised as engines of economic growth supported by quality infrastructure and complemented by an attractive fiscal package, both at the Centre and the state level. There is a single-window clearance in place to develop infrastructure expeditiously. Wherever SEZs have taken off, they have indeed contributed to growth. However, viewed from a pan-Indian perspective, it remains a serious question whether creation of such growth islands are the best public policy tool to promote inclusive growth. Robust principles of urban planning are a part of our very own history, going back to Harappan cities. Let’s not forget history, and suffer consequences that affects our and our children’s lives.
History? What is that?
