This chapter studies the land leasing and sales practices in Jaipur. Jaipur is known for being the very first planned city in India, as well as the capital of Rajasthan. The first part of the chapter discusses the socio-economic characteristics of Jaipur, including the categories of workers, the constituents of the Jaipur region, and the revenue the city gets from land sales and leasing. It notes that, in terms of land use, master plan, and building bye-laws, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) is the one responsible for planning, while the JDA and the Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) are responsible for operations, maintenance, and implementation. The second half of the chapter looks at the expenditure and service delivery of Jaipur, particularly on the city's water supply, sanitation, sewerage, and solid waste management.
