This handbook comprehensively analyses trends in urbanization using the most recent census data. The study discusses trends, patterns, growth, and the socioeconomic characteristics of urbanization; as well as the availability of infrastructure, migration trends, and employment opportunities. Covering 17 major states across India it provides regional dimensions and micro-level perspectives, by bringing in district level analysis of two developed statesMaharashtra and Punjab, and two relatively backward statesRajasthan and Bihar.

Since the publication of the first edition there have been two important developments that have been incorporated into this edition. The first is the release of the migration data by the Census of India. The data throws up many facts that run contrary to popular belief on rural-urban migratory movement. The second is the launch of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission in 2006. The largest initiative in urban infrastructure development, the Mission focuses on city development strategies.

The volume will be invaluable to professional urban planners, state urban development authorities, policymakers, and non-governmental organizations.

Not only the book deals with definitional problems, urban growth, and migration patterns, it also successfully brings out what should be the response to deal with some of these issues.
The Indian Journal of Labour Economics

The scope of this study is to obtain a proper understanding of the extent, pattern, and trends as well as the socioeconomic and spatial characteristics of urbanization in India.
