The Problem:

EnCity (Environment Friendly City) model is designed by observing cities like Mumbai and Delhi in India. Increasing globalization and the improving economy have changed the density of population per sq meter, living standard as well as need of improved citizen, thereby causing problems like transport, energy use, drainage, pollution and most importantly environmental loss. Evidences of the same are increasing temperature level rising, animal invention like leopard in Mumbai city, 26/7 flood in the city, illegal horizontal growth of the city almost disturbing surrounding ecological balance as well as increasing train and road accidental deaths.

The Social Invention:
I believe the same can be controlled to some extent with the use of EnCity plan
· A residential complex type structure for MNC’s or the Organizations which have staff more than 5000or so. By residential comlex structure I mean that a particular area can be selected like a station for e.g. XYZ which is of 5km radius.

ABC an MNC which is based on a location KML which have 20000 employees who resides in different localities. By shifting the base of ABC to centralized location like XYZ with
1) Employee Accommodations (Bifurcated as per status)
2) Centralized work place within the radius of 5km in the middle of station.
3) Upward movement of construction in the case of expansion.
4) Power and water controllers as per the requisite as to have a direct control over usage (As per the need of the mini city).

· For organizations having employee strength of 500 – 3000, XYZ can be used effectively by dividing the area by valuating each organizational strengths and requirements.
1) All the above majors can be applied in this middle level.
2) In the case of growth and unavailability of technology for upward movement the same organization can be allotted a separate plot near by XYZ location, which could have been vacant by implicating the mentioned plan.
· Small Scale industry’s can be combined in one centralized Tower, and employees can be accommodated applying the same principles.
· Organizations can use latest facilities like video conferencing more readily without depending on internet but intranet itself. That can further cut down the cost as well as traveling.


Pros of the plan:-
It will definitely cut down or control traveling of people by which following benefits can be ripped
1) Traffic will be under control.
2) Time savvy as reduced traveling.
3) Cost worthy as time is saved as well fuel consumption is halved.
4) By proper control over power, water, energy sources organizations can save their cost, economically feasible for government.
5) Employees can have a proper work-family balance, which indirectly motivate them.
6) Most importantly less polluted cities as there will be less emission of dangerous gaseous. As well it will control exploitation of nature by humans for his energy needs.
7) Needless to say any government can saved a very big amount of GDP wastage, as reoccurring cost of maintenance of roads and city infrastructure can be shared as well as saved.

Problems for implementing Encity plan:-
1) The cost factor of the land, which may cause a big hurdle.
2) Encity have to build from scratch, it can not be upgraded over an existing city as it’s require proper planning for drainage, transport as well as supply of all necessary commodities.
3) Most important problem will be members of the same family working in different organization. This can be handled by mutual understanding between them or organizational policies

It takes an individual to change a part of world. It takes all the effort from a group to change the way world works.
