Introduction
On 1st May 1960, the erstwhile Bombay State was bifurcated to form two States - Maharashtra and Gujarat. Both the States inherited the laws and Acts prevailing at the time of Bombay State.
Meanwhile, both the States were enthusiastic to recognize fast developing economy of an independent nation and utilize the opportunities offered by such situation. This not only created a healthy competition in the development of the State, but also made the administrators and planners to think about new set of legislation, which could empower them in utilizing the available circumstances in the development of the State.
The State of Gujarat therefore, enacted a new Act – The Gujarat Town Planning & Urban Development Act, 1976, which is a set of very comprehensive planning legislation. The Act encompasses wide range of planning, starting from regional planning at macro level to the Town Planning Scheme at micro level.
The Act empowers the State Government to recognize, identify and delineate the areas, having potential for the development. Thus, the planning process was no longer attached with any settlement or local body.
