BAPS, under the inspiration of Pramukh Swami Maharaj, has professionally and scientifically planned to rebuild over 2000 homes in 8 villages and a colony in Bhuj, involving the local people and community. The rebuilding of 8 villages, namely; Ukhadmora, Nana Khirsara, Devisar, Gunatitpur, Jiyapur, Nani Mau, Modpur and Gariya, will comprise of:
2. Social structure
3. Economic structure
4. Amenities and facilities
5. Resource management
The participatory process of involving the community in the design of their neighbourhood consisted of:
1. Conducting a reconnaisance study to ascertain and understand the existing conditions in the community: the physical layout, demography, socio-cultural and economic aspects and any unique or characteristic features of the place or people.
2. Discussion with the villagers, in an effort to understand their lifestyles and social groups to evolve design solutions sensitive to social and cultural requirements of the people. From these discussions, parameters of the area, extent of site, clusters organisation, facilities and amenities were decided upon.
3. Motivating the people and discussing their needs, aspirations and requirements.
4. Identifying and aquiring the land for resettlement, and assessment of its site features.
Proposed home plans for this re-construction is given below. Also, some parts of the master planning of the adopted villages are also presented here.
