- Advertisement -

The city of Punjab actually consists of the name of two components: Sapta Sindhu, in the north, the historic city of bravery, and Food called Langar in the world. Most of the users search online How many cities are there in Punjab? You might be thinking about what would be the correct answer. There are total of 168 cities in Punjab.

There is no hard line between a city and a town or between a town and a village. Cities or towns notified by the government are called legislative cities. In these cities, urban local bodies like city councils have been formed.

There are three types of urban local bodies in Punjab – Municipal Corporation, Nagar Parishad, and Nagar Panchayat. Municipal Councils are further divided into three categories namely Class-I, Class-II, and Class-III. A city with a population of over one lakh is called a city. But usually, the words city or town are used interchangeably.

At present, Punjab has a total of 168 statutory towns and another 69 census towns. Thus there are a total of 237 towns (or say cities) in Punjab. The list of statutory towns includes 10 Municipal Corporations, 96 Nagar Parishads, 59 Nagar Panchayats, and 3 Cantonment Boards.

Bathinda with 21 towns in the district with the highest number of towns. Pathankot and Sujanpur are the only two cities in the district with the lowest number of cities.

Climate Towns In Punjab

According to the 2011 Indian Census, there were a total of 217 towns in Punjab. In addition to the 143 Statutory Town (ST), it also includes 74 Census Cities (CT). A census town is not an informed city according to the state government (considered a village in state government records), but it does meet the definition of a city according to the census department.

In the years following the Census Survey, 25 new Legislative Towns have been notified by the State Government bringing the number of Legislative Towns to 168. Out of this list of 25 new cities, 5 are census towns, thus reducing the number of census towns from 74 to 69.

City Population or Urban Population – The total population of urban cities of Punjab as per 2011 census is 1.04 crore. This is 37.5% of the total population of the state. The urban population of Punjab has increased by 25.8% during the period 2001 to 2011 while the total population of Punjab has increased by 13.9%.

The migration of people from rural areas to cities and the rapid urbanization of rural areas around cities are the major contributing factors to the rapid population growth in urban areas. The city-wise population of Punjab is given in the next section of this article.
