History of Planning Tank™
Well, the story behind it is the identity of “Planning Block” of School of Planning & Architecture, Delhi. As you might be aware that SPA Delhi is divided into 2 different blocks namely Planning Block (serves administrative purpose and classes of planning are held) and Architecture Block (classes for architecture take place here).
Within Planning Block, almost all students hang out on “Planning Tank”, it’s actually a tank for storing water and can be considered a big raised stage with a number of messages/wishes/quotes on it by alumni of SPA Delhi. This is something which remained unchanged in the college and provides identity to the college. While discussing the idea of a website for planners and thinking about the history of Planning education in India (first started by SPA Delhi) the thought of keeping the name of the website as “Planning Tank” crossed our mind. The name is a part of the identity of the first ever college in India which started imparting planning education.
The website was started as the need to provide quality information to our users. We realized the problems faced by planners and the time and efforts wasted in trying to find the required information. The information needed need to be just adequate, not too brief and nor too detailed. This has been kept in mind while making the website which is perfect for planners. However, if required we do provide detail information and fulfills the custom requirement of users. The content available on the website contains topics from the various subjects taught in Planning Colleges or which we feel will be beneficial for them. We do have additional information which is added from time to time keeping in mind the changes in the professional field. The website is currently in the very nascent stage because of lack of content writers as planners are hard to find 🙂
After excellent and huge support to our main website, we are now making an attempt to provide information about jobs! Currently, in beta stage, we aim to cover the maximum number of relevant job opportunities and internship opportunities for Planners.
To organize and centralize the scattered information which floats on social media groups and WhatsApp. Providing one place for students, academicians, practitioners & professionals and bringing them under one roof to share the work opportunity.
What makes us unique!
We are the only dedicated platform which focuses exclusively on Urban, Regional & Rural Planning jobs, and internships. With the launch of our parent website and support of thousands of users spread across the globe, we aim at collecting and sharing the information for the betterment of the profession and ultimately “Happy, health & sustainable human settlements!”
