NIUA-CIDCO Smart City Lab Shares Comments on the Draft TOD Policy for Delhi

NIUA-CIDCO Smart City Lab shared comments on the Draft TOD Policy for Delhi. These comments were presented in context of the five constructs of Transit Oriented Development – Urban Density, Design, Diversity, Mobility and Housing. In summary, they were as follows:

  1. Need for phasing the development of areas under the policy along the MRTS corridors
  2. Need to ensure strong multi-modal integration
  3. Need for stronger parking restrictions within the TOD
  4. Need for eliminating FAR limits within the TOD and:
    • Using number people/households/jobs as markers of density
    • Reducing the practice of using FAR based incentives
  5. Need for diversification of housing unit size, types and occupancy
