Gujarat State News - 42.6% population is urban

According to the 2011 census figures, Gujarat's urban population is now 42.6 per cent, or 2.57 crore, of the state's total.

Thanks to rapid growth in industrial and service sectors over the last one decade, Gujarat is set to break all its previous records of urbanization.

No doubt, urbanization in Gujarat has been on the rise ever since Gujarat was founded 50 years ago.

However, the latest figures suggest the state's urbanization is the highest ever.

Previous figures suggest, 28.08 per cent of Gujarat's population lived in urban areas in 1971.

It rose to 31.1 per cent in 1981, further to 34.49 per cent in 1991 and 37.36 per cent in 2001.

"Only two states - Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra - are more urbanized than Gujarat", a senior state bureaucrat said, adding, "Tamil Nadu's urban population has been put at 46 per cent of the total, while that of Maharashtra's at 45 per cent."
