Urbanization in India is not rapid but massive. In order to plan for balanced and integrated development of the district and to control the growth of Nagpur, potential cities and towns should be developed to their optimum capacity. These growth centres should be developed not only to direct some of the population that would otherwise come to Nagpur and jeopardize its planned growth. The paper discusses the various methods like the rank size rule, near neighbour analysis, reed and mulch technique and functional classification of towns in the Nagpur district to study the pattern of growth of urban centres in the Nagpur district.
