The national capital of India, Delhi, is a city where indisputable economic progress related to urbanisation is accompanied by tremendous environmental concerns, congestion, poverty, and housing shortages. This thesis focuses on the rural-urban fringe, which is the ultimate battlefield of the environmental and socio-economic change brought about by urbanisation. The objective is to reveal the impact of urbanisation on the villages in Delhi's rural-urban fringe. The research areas are : Alipur Development Block north of the urban area of Delhi and Najafgarh Development Block west of Delhi. - (AGD)
