Abstract

Historical evidences show that urbanisation and city development process go through various stages. However, in Asian countries such as India, the population growth surpassed the economic growth contradicting the Western stages of urbanisation and city development. Taking a case study of the Delhi Metropolitan Region (DMR), spreading many neighbouring states and cities, using Klaassen and Berg hypothesis, this paper analyses the impact of influential factors in spatial rescaling of DMR. Using the trend data from the Population Census and Satellite Imageries, it concludes that both the market induced as well as government induced (meaning policy induced) factors lead to the urban growth in different stages reflected in the core and ring (fringe) development within National Capital Region (NCR) of Delhi.
