Abstract: A country’s socioeconomic priorities at any given time shape the drivers of the land-use change. There have been land-use changes in India owing to the rapid economic developments of the past decades. This chapter gives an overview of trends in land-use changes over the years. The chapter does this by looking at land-use statistics at the national level and in major metropolitan regions to assess the direction and scale of these changes. The chapter concludes with tentative policy options to address contemporary issues and concerns these changes have thrown up.
