Abstract

The study endeavours to explore the degradation of the urban environment in Mulund, a suburb of Mumbai, in the context of the existing gap between residents’ expectations and policy implementation. The results of the study indicate the presence of several urban environmental problems in Mulund. A vast majority of the residents are of the view that the policymakers are ignoring these issues. It is also found that there are not many policies that target the environmental issues of Mulund specifically. Based on these findings the study forwards certain suggestions towards effectively tackling the environmental problems of the area. The application of the suggested measures is expected to be greatly beneficial in bridging the existing gap between residents’ expectations and policy implementation to address the urban environmental issues of Mulund.
