The twin cities of Mussoorie-Dehradun, it’s an architect’s dream, a planner’s delight, inspiration for poets and a Mecca for tourists.
Dehradun manifests its position as an important city in the most fertile region of Doon Valley between rivers Yamuna and Ganga. It’s infact, the most developed city in the Shiwalik foothills and the gateway to the far-flung hill areas of Uttaranchal. Dehradun is blessed with many state and central government institutions for which It maintain its position in the country. It is the most vital service center, which meets the trade and commerce requirements of its hinterland.
During the post independence period, Dehradun as a city has registered an unprecedented growth in its population as well as physical expansion. Till the seventies there was no serious effort to chanalise the haphazard growth of the city. However with a view to check the haphazard growth of Dehradun the State government declared it as a Regulated area in 1963 under UP regulation of Building and Building Operation Act 1958 but the desired objectives could not be achieved as it performed only regulatory functions.
Consequently, before MDDA came into existence in 1984, the city was confronted with a number of problems of uncontrolled and haphazard development.
