In this paper an attempt is made to study the changes in land use and land cover categories for Delhi region using remote sensing data and to generate the statistical of the changes that occur in the area of various land use/ land cover categories during the period 1990 to 2015. Remote sensing data and GIS techniques provide efficient methods for analysis of land use issues and tools for land use planning and modeling. A comprehensive LULC map was developed for four distinct years for a period of 25 years to study the urbanization in Delhi and evaluate the Change Detection of the study area and showing the result into change matrix, as well as also find out the impact of Delhi urbanization in urban rural fringe area and evaluate the change matrix of fringe area. Therefore, LULC were distinctly developed for each study years but with more emphasis on Built-up area to assess and quantify the urbanization. The study has demonstrated that urbanization and Spatio-temporal growth can be quantify and compared across different years. Landsat & IRS data proved to be adequate data source for the analysis of large and fast changing urban growth in Delhi.
