Both proponents and cirtics of new development strategy agree that urban growth in the post liberalisation phase would be very high, although the critics hold that this will be associated with low productive employment and poverty and a negative effect on quality of life in the cities. It is important therefore to assess empirically the impact of economic liberalisation on the nature and pattern of urban growth. This article attempts an analysis of the trends and patterns of urbanisation in Gujarat, a rapidly industrialising state, taking account of the changes in labour market and those in the systems of urban governance, land management/development practices, and the commercialisation of basic services.
