Abstract

Central place hierarchy has awakened renewed interest particularly after the fusion of growth pole concept and the central place theory. The purpose of the paper is to examine whether: 1) there exists a hierarchically articulated central place system in a backward traditional economy and if so: 2) how strong is the functional interaction in the system through the successive orders of central places and how far is it amenable to be treated as a development pole system. A new methodology to identify the central place hierarchy by combining the location co-efficient technique with an empirically derived scalar multiplier of service functions has been applied.
