Perennial, historical and current define information about the land use and land cover changes of the Earth's surface is thoroughly essential for any kind of sustainable development program because in which LULC serves as one of the major input criteria. LULC dynamics are analysed by using Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This study is an attempt to evaluate the changes in land use/land cover in Surat city situated in the state of Gujarat at western part of India over a 10 year period. The study made use of LandSat imageries of 2006 and 2016 taken from USGS earth explorer. Maximum Likelihood classification method is used to classify the images. Five LULC categories like water, vegetation, built up area and bare land were identified and mapped. The results shows that land cover changes occurred in water, vegetation, built up area and bare land were 3.12%, 15.5%, 12.50%, 24.95% respectively. Citation: Roma Patel, B. M.
