Abstract:
Introduction: There is a great variation in urbanisation level and basic amenities available among the different regions and districts in Jammu and Kashmir. For a sustainable urban future, immediate attention should be given to the small and medium towns of the state where the growth has been significant in the recent census of India 2011.
Objectives: To examine the relationship between the growth of towns by class size to some selected basic amenities and to explore the growth of population in the different class size of towns and cities in Jammu and Kashmir from 1961 to 2011.
Data Source and Methodology: The present study is based on the Census of India data from 1961 to 2011. Different urbanisation indicators were used in the present study and the required proportional maps for town size at different period were prepared using GIS to show the growth of cities and towns among the different districts of the state.
Findings: The results show that the growth of population in small and medium towns is increasing over the period and these towns are moving towards the size class of large towns and cities. The results also show the access to basic amenities varies by level of urbanization and the size class of cities and towns. Cities show better availability of basic amenities compared to small urban centres. So the development of these small and medium towns is decisive to sustainable urbanization, and it can be augmented by the development of better provisions of basic amenities in these small and medium towns.
