Post Graduate Diploma in Urban Planning and Development (PGDUPDL)

India is 2nd largest urban system in the world with more than 30% of urban population. It is expected that by 2025, half of India‘s population will be urbane. The urbanization has created manifold problems such as transportation, poverty, unemployment, unauthorized housing colonies, slums and squatter settlements. The criticality of the urban problems has not been properly understood due to less emphasis on urban development issues in the academic curriculum at the graduation and post-graduation levels. Therefore, PGDUPDL will be useful for the people involved in the urban development programmes and also to the graduates who wish to pursue urban development as a career. The Postgraduate Diploma holders will be fully equipped to serve various Government and Non-Government Organizations dealing with urban planning and development.
