Abstract: Delhi is one of the largest metropolises in country not only in terms of area but also in terms of the population that it accommodates. As it is an administrative city and major work center, about 3 million people traveled to city daily, leading pressure on the transportation system. Three major trends characterize the urbanization process of Delhi in the 21st century. The first trend is of in-migration. Urban centers are seen as attractive, lively places to live and work, and as centers of intellectual and creative capacity. The second equally powerful trend is the continuing growth and emerging maturity of Delhi's suburbs, many of which are as a part of the National Capitol Territory struggling to become cities in their own right. Suburban areas are increasingly diverse in race, ethnicity and income, and increasingly experiencing the travails of rapid growth. These growth issues include the need to diversify land uses to build more solid revenue bases, the need to create urban centers, and the growing problem of traffic congestion along overburdened suburban arterials The third trend is an increased interest in transit use and transit investment. Virtually every metropolitan city in India is planning some form of urban rail or rapid bus system. Introduction of MRTS brought changes in distribution of people, in activity patterns or in land uses in form of informal sector, congestion, parking problem, increased land value followed by the transformation of land use. It may lead to unplanned development, so to have planned development there should be proper integration of landuse with transportation leading to Transit supportive development. At the convergence of these three trends is the realization that a substantial market exists for a new form of walkable, mixed-use urban development around these new rail or rapid bus stations and transit stops. The present work is an effort to evolve planning guidelines for the compact transport-oriented development in Delhi. During the study, the data was collected in form of maps from the previous studies and primary data collection done by mapping the existing land use of the area and carrying out surveys. For conducting the primary survey, stratified random sampling was done and the strata's that were formed were based upon the area under pure residential use and area under mix of residential and commercial use. The survey findings revealed lots of facts and figures and the improvement that the people in the area wanted and the changes that they desired should have been taken care of In order to have compact transit oriented development, recommendations and guidelines are laid to integrate the landuse planning with transportation.
