  • A context-sensitive approach to sustainable planning and development helps to protect public health, safety, andwelfare.

The careful analysis of sites—and the site’s context—can lead to better development proposals and, ultimately, to higher-quality built environments. Qualified site planners and designers are vital to this process.

In a deposit-dominated market like India it is important for mutual funds to be able to offer differentiated risk-rewards and gain shelf-space.
