CBD BELAPUR: The City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) has un­der­taken sur­vey of house­holds in nodes en­ti­tled ‘So­cio-Eco­nomic and De­mo­graphic pro­file of pop­u­la­tion in planned nodes in Navi Mum­bai’.

Such stud­ies and sur­veys set a bench­mark to progress of Navi Mum­bai and the di­rec­tion in which the city is mov­ing. They will be help­ful to pol­icy mak­ers, plan­ners and ad­min­is­tra­tors.

Cidco chief pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer Mo­han Ni­nawe said: “Cidco has as­signed this study to Re­search Unit, Col­lege of So­cial Work, Nir­mala Nike­tan, Mum­bai. The sur­vey will start from third week of Jan­uary and will end in May. With­out the co­op­er­a­tion from cit­i­zens it will not be pos­si­ble to get re­sponse and re­li­able data.”

He said, “In­cor­rect in­for­ma­tion will lead to a wrong data­base, which will re­sult in faulty plan­ning. The suc­cess of the sur­vey de­pends on the qual­ity of re­sponse from the pub­lic.”

Ni­nawe said, “The stud­ies have played a key role in shap­ing up Navi Mum­bai and will con­tinue to pro­vide guide­line for the bet­ter fu­ture of cit­i­zens.”

Ni­nawe added that Cidco has ap­pealed to res­i­dents for their co­op­er­a­tion.

“In­ves­ti­ga­tors will ap­proach them for the sur­vey and peo­ple should pro­vide cor­rect and com­plete in­for­ma­tion,” he added.
