Asia-Pac J Reg Sci https://doi.org/10.1007/s41685-018-0089-x ARTICLE A study on institutional imbalances of the urban–rural governance framework in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, India 1 1 Richa Kandpal · Izuru Saizen Received: 4 December 2017 / Accepted: 1 June 2018 © The Japan Section of the Regional Science Association International 2018 Abstract The population growth rate of Mumbai city within Mumbai Metropoli- tan Region shows a declining trend, while that of other areas has been increasing since the past few decades. Kalyan and Bhiwandi are two such developing nodes within the region and the villages around them are also fast urbanising. This study analyses the polycentric governance structure of Mumbai Metropolitan Region with respect to the policy provisions at national, state, and local levels and points out the weaknesses in the system by following an inductive approach. Documentary analy- sis and interviews with government officials and experts from various related organ - izations form the base for institutional mapping, and the evolution of the existing regional planning structure is also elaborated upon. The study reveals the hierarchy and inter-relations between the organizations involved in the urban and rural centres within the region. Overlapping, complementing, or conflicting objectives and differ - ences in accountabilities are the major issues discussed
