2 Spatial Intervention, Settlement Systems and Rural Development in India Sudhir Wanmali International Food Policy Res arch Institute Washington, D.C. U...A. Spatial intervention isthe one where a new function/service isintroduced in a region's settlement system. Urban centres play?d an important role in this intervention. Interventions in the urban segment of settlement system did not help the development of rural areas. Studies on spatial intervention in Miryalguda taluk of Andhra Pradosh and Nagpur Metropolitan region are compared in this study. Spatial Intervention: Past Methods and Recent Evidence S patial intervention is defined, for the sake of present discussion, as one where a new function/service is introduced in a region's settlement system. Interventions in the urban segment of a settlement system was, and still is, considered in India as a useful approach to rural development. It was assumed, in this approach, that if the urban centres had the necessary industrial and socioeconomic infrastructure then the surrounding rural area would benefit from it. Thus for many years in the past, the strengihening of urban core (the area within municipal limits) and urban system (consisting of urban cores of varying importance and their rural hinterlands which are functionally linked together) with adequate industrial and socio-economic facilities was considered a viable strategy (4,6,7,8,9,11). In the analysis of such inierventions, urban centres, urban hierarchies and urban-rural relationships have played an important part. For example, it is assumeo by those who advocated such interventions that there exists in India an interconnected system of metropolitan cities which is supported by yet another system of large and medium-sized lowns. Rural areas within these two systems were assumed to be disorganized. It was felt that if all growth and development inputs are located in metropolitan, and other urban areas their interconnected nature would help the distribution, and diffusion, of these inputs
3 12 INOIAN GEOGRAPHICAL JOURNAL in the rural areas (4, 6,9, 12). This diffusion of development inputs was to have been achieved within a metropolitan, ar. an urban, region from the metrop,)iis, and town, outwards, and downwards, to the rural hinterlands in a hierarchical manner; and within a system of metropolitan, and urban, regions from higher order regions to the lower order regions. There is now enough empirical eviden,.e to suggest that the above consequences of urban intervention would not automatically follow for a numberof reasons. First there exists geographic, functional and spatial gaps in the urban system of India (2, 5, 13, 15, 19). Second, these gaps effectively prevent the outward and downward spread of growth and developmefit inputs. Third, there is "functional friction" between the urban and rural sectors of metropolitan areas that has prevented the rural hinterlands from deriving the benefits of a metropolitan economy (1, 14, 17, 22). Fourth, the growth from heavy and basic industries does not diffuse to all centres in the surrounding region but primarily to those where the factors of production are located. Fifth, the types of developmental inputs which are in high demand in rural areas are services such as educalion, health, transport, communications, trade, agricultural input supplies, veterinary services arid retail goods of various kinds (1. 10, 16). These appear to be mostly located in urban areas which, in turn, are largely inaccessible to tne rural areas. Finally, the metropolitar and urban regions in I:-.dia are not hierarchically organized so as to ensure a successful downward diffusion of development inputs (2). In the industrial sector, new heavy and basic industries were located in the resource rich regions of India which hitherto did not have such industries. In order ko facilitate their working, new towns, and townships, were established for manufacture of steel, copper, chemicals and petro-chemicals, aluminum, uranium, atomic energy, machine tools, engineering, electrical and defense equipment. The ease with which factor and product links were esla lished in these industries added to the myth that these units are also capable of integrating their rural hinterlands Bul what these industrial interventions achieved for rural development (apart trom a spectacular growth in overall industrial producticrn) was a very rudimentary form of integration with the surrounding regions First, during the period of construction of these ;rdustrial centres, a large part of the rural population was employed as labour on the building sites. Second, the rural areas provided the inhabitants of the new industrial townships with vegetables, milk and dairy products, poultry and poultry products, meat and food grains. The nonlood producing population of the townships represented acan tured demand for these goods. The new inaustrial centres were good company towns, having excellent facilitate for education, health, communications, transport, banking and wholesale and retail trade; but these were rarely used by anyone except the employees of the induslrial units. Incidentally, these were the very services that were neeoed to effect a quick integration of the centre and its rural hinturlands; but the industrial centres tended to keep these services to themselves, preventing the rural areas from integrating with them.
4 SPATIAL INTERVENTION AND SETTLEMENT SYSTEMS 13 Whatever the reasons, with the exception of a few centres, these industrial townships often did little to serve the rural areas around them. From the above discussion, itbecomes clear that interventions inthe urban segment of the settlement system did not improve the access to services necessary for the overall development of the rural areas at least not in the manner as it was envisaged by planners. What about examples ol spatial interventions in the rural segment of the settlement system? These, as may be well be expected, are not as numerous as those noted above; nor are these as well researched to draw some broad based conclusions. But there are afew studies, which were originally conducted in the late sixties, and repeated in the late seventies (19, 20), the findings of which can be of some interest to the main arguments contained in the current discussion. The findings could be of further interest because the two regions where the studies were conducted have different regional economic characteristics. The Study Regions Miryalguda Taluka, in Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh, is in the command area of Nagarjunasagar Irrigation Project and was provided with irrigation facilities in the late sixties. Simultaneously, attempts were made to make available some services which were considered necessary for the development of agriculture. Based on afield survey, plans called for location of specific services in 18 settlements (all villages), in addition to 4 that were already functioning as service centres, in the areas of transport, marketing, communications, credit, banking, animal husbandry, agricultural input, supp!y, health and education. The same region was resurveyed in the late seventies to identify the progress made in the previous decade. Nagpur Metropolitan Region, in Nagpur district of Maharashlra, was first surveyed also in the late sixties. It was noted that the metropolitan city of Nagpur tended to have most of the higher order services (similar to those mentioned in the Miryalguda Taluka) and that although there were regional rural service centres, these needed to be provided with better, and now, services in order to make them more attractive, and accessible, to the surrounding population. This region was also resurveyed in the late seventies. The relevant findings from both tiese studies are noted below. Spatial Intervention and Settlement Systems The Spatial intervenlion in Miryal3uda and Nagpur Regions was inthe form of locations of new services in settlements. InMiryalguda Region 20 out of 22 service centres, and in Nagpur Region 11 out of 13, were ruial in character. This indicates that the rural segment of the settlement system was the focus of attention. Further, about 18 settlements chosen to be service centres in Miryalguda wore not functioning as service centres in 1968; whereas in the case of
5 14 INDIAN GEOGRAPHICAL JO&..NAL Nagpur the chosen 11 were alreadv functioning as service centres and were selected for further "strengthening" of their functional span (20). The decline in the case of Miryalguda region was caused by new centres, once established, taking away parts of the service territory, and service population from old service centres. The increase in the case of Nagpur region was caused by the "strengthened" rural service centres expanding their areas of influence also at the cost of old service centres. In both cases, the old service centres were "urban" in character. There are instances in the Miryalguda region where the service population and ares have increased- these are the services in whose number there was little change. As compared to!he Nagpur region, tie degree of inaccessibility obtained in the Miryalguda region, although declining quite impressively over the two points in time, is nevertheless quite substa,,atial. For example, the extent of area served by all services in the Miryalgujda region was tines more in 1968, and 6.62 limes more in 1978, than in the Nagpur region Further, there has been an improvement in the provision ot services in both regions (Table 3) Inthe case of tviryalguda region, the government sector services led the process of improvement in service provision whereas in the Nagpur region, it wa-s the private sector whih were the leading factor In both regions, the diffusion of services has taken place, and is continuing to take place, in a hierarchical manner This is, perhaps, a consequence of the tact that in both regions the rural segment of the seltlement system as a whole does not show mrny 'gaps. that is,all size groups of population are avai'able within the regions: (for whethr it is worth, it is interesting to note that the settlements systenis of both the.egiorrsare becoming log-normal in distrioution), and what there are no large tracts where there is an absolute absence of sultlements of a particular size group. There were "functional" gaps in the settlement systems (in late sixties) which have now been filled (the functional system too are becoming log-normal in distribution). The rural sector of Nagpur region appears to be interacting with its urban-sector through a series of dynarnic ch.-iges, where the government sector appears to have assumed the role of a "facilitator". For example it announces secloral policies, or decisions, and facililales their implementation. These together he,p in the growth of the regional economy. The actual execution o! the policy, in most cases, appears to t"c. oeen left to f!- spontaneous forces Inthis important sense, the govrnment sector is playing a secondory role, to that of the private sector, in the ov,nran' p.rocess of development (20). This isi contrast to a situation in Miryaetnda region,,h&ire the governmnr was seen to be responsible not only for thu declaration ot a policy and facilitating implementation but also in the act of executing some of the policies and decisions (19).

8 SPATIAL INTERVENTION AND SETTLEMENT SYSTEMS 17 Spatial Intervention and Stages of Regional Developmernt On the basis of the available evidence, itcan be suggested that the difference inthe role of the government sactor are aconsequence,.fthe stages of development at which the two regions find themselves. Broadly speaking, Nagpur region has existed as an urban/industrial region since the beginning of this century; where the spatial framework within which services, agro-industries and rural cottage industries have tended to emerge, as a spontaneous response by the private sector to the policy declarations of tcie government, has existed for the last eighty odd years (20). This, for example, becomes clear from the figures of index of service provision in Table 3; which are impressively high for Nagpur region. Miryalguda region, on the other hano, is a rural/agricultural region which has changed from a drought prone area to an irrigated t-act in thwe late sixties where such spatial framework itself was in the process of being established; in which the role of the government sector was observed to be the more dominating (19). Conclusions It is noled that the "gaps' in the urban segment of the settlement system tend to make the system only partly effective in iacilitating the development of the urban and rural sectors of the economy. But one of the main reasons for these urban based models to continue to be partly effective, particularly in the rural sector, is the insistence (of the current research workers in this field) to treat urban and rural (centres, populations and regions) separately. It is one thing to do so ;n the census abstracts (in a demographic sense) in order to nelp understand their distinct characteristics; but it is quite another, and incorrect, thing to do when describing their spatial and/or functional characterstics. In almost all analyses of settlement systems, therefore, only the urban segments have received (disproportionate) attention: and not only have the rural segments not been included but in some instances thesc have been wished away.

9 18 INDIAN GEOGRAPHICAL JOURNAL Whatever the real, or assumed, difficulties in undertaking such an "integrated" research, this situation needs to be remedied soon. An example of how during the last twenty-five years the research on urban-rural relationships in India is going in circles is reflected in the emergence of the same issues and questions at a meeting of experts who were entrusted with the task of defining a policy of urbanization in the country (3). As was noted elsewhere, one of the reasons for the inability to break out of this circle is the reluctance of the development planners to explore new policy options (19, 20). It is not difficult to see, for example, that the urban centres are located in rural areas besides being "connected" to other urban centres; and that what are described as tentacles of an urban system in a disorganized rural sector can also be described as apexes of a spatially, and temporarily, organized rural settlement system (18). In the two case studies it was observed that spatial intervention look the form of establishing new servica s and agro-processing units in the villages of a rural region. this was achieved by taking info cognizance the demographic, functional and spatiil characteristics ot the rural segment of the settlement system; and this entire development was viewed in the context of its linkages with other sectors of the regional economy such as irrigation, transport, industrial development as well as agricultl:re rhus, it can be soid that SuCh exercise of spatial intarvention could be unde rtaken in a region to improve the articulation of its settlement system as well as the overall access to its services References 1.
