    A comparison of developments in Cuttack and Kochi

    Post  Alexandra on Mon Jun 06, 2011 10:17 pm

    The Cuttack Urban agglomeration and Bhubaneswar have an area of 109.95 and 92.9 sq. km respectively with a density of 2,978 and 2.359 persons/per sq km respectively, according to the 1981 Census.  In the state of Orissa, Cuttack was the business center similar to Mumbai in Maharashtra.  But developments in Cuttack are rather irrelevant when considering the situation prevailing in Kochi, the financial capital of Kerala.  While in Kochi Apartments are proliferating due the increasing demand for built up living spaces and the apartment culture has taken deep roots.  Such a trend is only emerging at a slower pace in Cuttack.
     
    A study of the housing pattern in Cuttack reveals that one-room houses formed 35 percent of the total dwelling units, two rooms 28 percent and housing units with three rooms and above constituted 37 percent.  Out of the total households, about 39 percent lived in rented spaces.  When the physical condition of the houses is analyzed, 64 percent had thatched roofs, 27 percent were tiled or had asbestos sheets or tin sheets for roofing.  Only nine percent of the households had permanent concrete roofing.  As far as the materials used to build the walls to separate the room, 63 percent of houses have burnt brick walls, 32 percent had mud walls and five percent of the households were constructed with sub-standard materials.
     
    In the year 1971, the Cuttack Urban Complex had 37,527 occupied residential houses as against 43,327 households.  The deficiency was to the tune of 5,800 houses.  In 1981, there were 55,883 occupied residential houses as against 61,913 households.  The housing shortage was therefore of the order of 6030 houses.
     
    In Cuttack, when taking a family unit as five persons per family, the existing members of non-slum dwelling units are around 65,000.  The housing shortage is estimated to be more than 8,500 units.  In Bhubaneswar, the occupied residential houses and the total number of households as per 1981 Census were 42,385 and 44,450 respectively.  Now the number of households is around 80,000.  Against this the actual number of dwelling units is only 63,000.  After deducting 9000 slum huts, the shortage of dwelling units is around 8000.
     
    At Cuttack between since the year 2001, the total need for additional dwelling units for non-slum houses would be 33,500, i.e., 2,500 new housing units per year is needed for meeting the additional demand.  In Bhubaneswar, between now and 2001 the total need for additional dwelling units for non-slum houses would be 31,000, i.e., around 2300 new housing units per year.
