Morphometry means measurement and analysis of the configuration of earth and different landforms of it. In the present work morph metric analysis of Rajgardh district is done by using Arc Hydro tool. Rajgarh watershed is located at 23.42▫N and76.32▫E at RL of 390 m from mean sea level (MSL) in western part of the Madhya Pradesh. It receives moderate rainfall of about 985.8 mm. Different linear, ariel and relief parameters are evaluated to analyse the quantitative evaluation of watershed drained by Kalisindh, Parwati and Niwaz rivers. The study of Rajgarh drainage basin revealed that it is 6th order drainage basin of dendrite drainage pattern. Total number of streams is 3532. The length of stream segment is maximum for first order stream and decreases as the stream order increases. The drainage density (Dd) of study area is 0.56 km/km2 which shows that the area is not been much affected by structural disturbances, while drainage frequency (i.e., 0.77) and very coarse drainage texture (i.e, 3.96) specifies low relief and porous, permeable rocks beneath the ground surface. This study is helpful to utilize the water resources of Rajgardh watershed for sustainable development of the area.
