Urban supremacy is such a paramount factor that it is hard to believe, that the two communities belong to the same world or even the same country. The split between the urban and rural population is escalating sufficiently due to the resource and information divide. Pakistan’s current population is about one-third urban and on the rise, mainly due to migration, in search of employment, resources, better livelihood, basic necessities etc. Urban cities are hubs of innovation, technology and communication. Although Pakistan has always been defined by its countryside where majority of the population and the agricultural sector is based, that has dominated Pakistan’s economy from ages. However that is imperiled and the high-growth industries in the cities are the light at the end of the tunnel for Pakistan’s floundering economy, but at the same time the rising urban populations pose great challenges for job markets and service providers. While ultra-modern telecommunication in cities provides great benefits to Pakistani society, the rural population remains deficit. People are leaving the hinterland to seek jobs in cities, farmers and fishermen whose lives and source of income have been shattered by waster scarcity, desertification and other aspects of climate change. In the ongoing pandemic most likely the urban supremacy will take over and get its hands on the vaccine first and foremost. Urban and Rural development are correlative. Reinforcing linkages between urban centers and rural areas is important to guarantee that the two remain mutually reinforcing. Towns and urban areas provide markets for rural items and jobs to retain surplus labor. On the off chance that marketing systems are improved for both rural inputs and products, production, business, jobs and the degree for private enterprise in rural areas urban communities can be expanded. Effective frameworks and administrations can encourage complementary urban-rural advancement with the expansion and commercialization of rural economies. If affectively fortified, the urban-rural dynamics can help guarantee that interests in services, infrastructure, facilities, and productive activities are located strategically in towns to serve a wide region.
