Introduction

Based on Gurukul vision, the plan for the 105 Ropani site provides a physical framework to guide the development of the 75 Ropani of lands available in the Mahakal for the establishment of several community infrastructures and facilities including the Marxist Gurukul as the learning and sharing centre. Planning criteria and development guidelines encompass organization of academic programs, parking facility, utilities, building sites, open space and landscape design.

Given the limited confined boundaries of the Gurukul area, the area is divided into several zones as per the requirement of the community and objective of developing a holistic learning centre especially through dialectic method including necessary resource materials.
