Abstract: The development of new townships inside cities is not simply the creation of new towns on hitherto agricultural land. With the emergence of these townships new forms of socio-spatial exclusion emerge and at the same time strengthen the existing inequalities inside city space. The objective of this article is to present some of the aspects of spatial exclusion with the creation of private townships or private urban spaces inside the city of Pune. The analysis is based on observations and in-depth interviews from the new/old local residents of the townships and their surroundings. The narratives of local people tell an interconnected story of capital and power in the new townships. This article attempts to contribute to the existing debate on the changing nature of urban spaces.
