Abstract The paper is organised into four sections. Section I examines literature on urbanisation, its contribution to economic development and relation to economic reforms and globalisation. Section II displays the trends in urbanisation in India and its states. Section III looks into the reasons why urban transformation in UP failed to take place. This is unlike many other states of the country, where the urbanisation level increased because of economic reforms and subsequent high economic growth. The section also examines whether there is any relationship between urbanisation and poverty reduction. Section IV concludes the study.
