In the current context, India's urbanisation is progressing at a quicker rate, although just one-third of the population lives in cities. Only over 30% of the world's population lived in cities in 1950, but by 2012, that number had risen to more than 50%. According to estimates, India's urban population accounted for around 10% of the world's urban population and about 21% of Asia's. According to a UN estimate, by 2030, more than 70% of the world's population would be living in cities. Furthermore, it is estimated that urban regions will house 40.76 percent of India's population. India is in the midst of a tremendous urban shift, and its urban population is the world's second largest behind China's. Natural growth and rural-to-urban migration have both contributed to India's urbanisation. In India, urban poverty has arisen as a result of a lack of employment possibilities and inadequate income among a significant portion of the urban population. Therefore, this paper focuses on India’s urban agglomeration growth.

Keywords : urbanisation, urban growth agglomeration, towns and cities, population growth.
