Impact of Land Use Regulations on Suburbanisation: Evidence from India’s Cities

Abstract

India is characterised by strong land use controls, but their impacts have drawn little attention. I study the impact of the restrictive land use controls such as floor area ratio, and urban land ceiling on population and employment suburbanisation in India’s urban areas. Using standard econometric techniques, I find that population suburbanises in response to relaxation of FAR norms in the suburbs. However, land use regulations do not have any impact on employment suburbanisation.
