520    This study identifies three priority areas for India's 
       policymakers as they try to harness economic efficiency 
       and manage spatial equity associated with urbanization. 
       First, to enhance productivity, invest in the 
       institutional and information foundations to enable land 
       and housing markets to function efficiently, while 
       deregulating the intensity of land use in urban areas. 
       This measure would require better coordination between 
       planning for land use and planning for infrastructure, 
       such that densification can be accompanied by 
       infrastructure improvements. An incremental model of 
       experimentation focusing on a few areas-say, around 
       infrastructure corridors and neighborhoods-and then 
       scaling up based on community-level consensus building can
       help in implementing densification reforms.Second, to 
       improve livability, rationalize the rules of the game for 
       delivering and expanding infrastructure services, such 
       that providers can recover costs yet reach out to poorer 
       neighborhoods and peripheral areas. Third, for better 
       mobility, invest in improving connectivity between 
       metropolitan cores and their peripheries, as these are the
       areas that will attract the bulk of people and businesses 
       over the medium term. Connectivity improvements include 
       investments in network infrastructure and logistics to 
       facilitate movement of goods, while also easing mobility 
       for people.Land policy, infrastructure services, and 
       connectivity-coordinated improvements in this triad can 
       help India reap dividends from improved spatial equity and
       greater economic efficiency that comes with urbanization
