Abstract: Explosive increase in urban population especially in major cities and towns has brought the strain on sustainable development of the city. Jaipur is one of the rapidly growing cities of India, facing several problems. One of the major issues is to find new area as well as restricted areas for further urban development. Therefore effective and efficient planning becomes mandatory for sustainable development of Jaipur. This research aimed to ascertain the built up growth of Jaipur city and its satellite towns; as well as connectivity of satellite town with all the basic amenities and facilities. In this paper satellite images are used to map built up growth and proximity analysis using GIS deployed for assessing connectivity to Jaipur city. Built up are showed enormous increase for Jaipur city and its satellite towns in last four decades. However proximity analysis provided details of distance to basic amenities and facilities from all towns. Although all towns are very well connected with road network but distances from facilities and basic amenities are almost lie in the range of 30-40 km, which indicated requirement of efficient transportation to avail facilities. Results can be used as preliminary guidelines for local governments and planners regarding development and management to achieve sustainable city.
