Analyzing Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) helps to protect our agricultural landscapes in the urban areas under the background of rapid urbanization. This study examines the rate of urban expansion and variations of LULC from a period of 2000 to 2020 years using GIS for Patancheruvu block in Telangana, India. LULC analysis was done by using Land change Index and Integral Index of Connectivity (IIC) is used to estimate the ecological quality of the Patancheruvu. LULC analysis described that over the past 20 years period urban expanse happen more than doubled, resulting in a 34% increased. IIC analysis clarified that spatial connectivity of natural and agricultural land dropped from 0.72 to 0.25 from 2000 to 2020 respectively. It is concluded that obvious damage happened around local ecosystem. Therefore, the study results help to plan urban expansion by balancing economic development and ecological protection.
