Sustainable development approach of the contemporary times is vitalizing the potentiality of Brownfields. Future developmental strategies anticipate Brownfield development to confer the optimization of greenfield development strategies. ‘Brownfield Development’ is considered to be one of the wisest approaches in the redevelopment applications from the past few decades across the globe. Practicalities demanded a technical approach in identifying and treating brownfields so as to get sustainable results. Successful case examples accorded that scientific treatment of brownfields yielded effective results in US and UK. This paper helps in knowing the characteristics of brownfield sites; understanding the implications of scientific treatment of brownfields with successful case examples across the world. This paper focuses on critically analyzing the scenario of ‘brownfield development’ in India; contemporary status and expected future challenges. Brownfield development strategy in India is limited to urban planning framework, with a negligible count of technically dealt projects. India, being a developing nation with rich diversity and resource potential, anticipates sustainable results in redevelopment implications. This study predicts certain challenges such as environmental related issues, managerial techniques, technical assistance for remediation, infrastructural development, shortcomings in contemporary methodologies in India etc. And, tried to recommend few strategies by taking due reference from successful examples on real time. Inferring from the predicted circumstantial lattice, this research concludes with identifying the necessity in formulation of an exclusive ‘Brownfield Code for India’.
