Abstract: his research seeks to initiate the close linkage between market centre and its surroundings villages. Every town has linked with its surrounding area and these links can be physical, economic or social. This interaction is of mutual benefit since advantageous movements flow in both directions that is movement of people, goods, finance and information from a central town to its surrounding region and vice versa. Market centers are developed to serve their hinterland population. Each center has its own hinterland area but the hinterland areas are not uniform in size or nor the market centers, and the comparative growth of some at the expense or stagnation of others demands explanation. Actually cities and surrounding areas are interrelated each other and one depends upon to fulfill its daily needs. Market centre contributes to the economic, industrial, social and cultural development of any country. Many activities related to production occur at local level within the area defined by the centre. These activities require the service infrastructure such as production-oriented (road, bridge, electricity, bank, market, inputs, extension, etc.) and community-oriented (education, health, etc.) for their development, expansion or strengthening. Most of these service facilities are located in market or urban centers known for their access by the people to determine the geographical area of influence of the centre. Apart from providing information on spatial information spatial extent of hinterland region of the market centre, this “Backward and forward linkages in Bhojpur Bazaar and its Surrounding villages” of Bhojpur district also seeks to obtain information on geophysical environment, population size, number and size of settlement and opportunities and possibilities of development of both market centre and its hinterland areas. All this Information was gathered mainly via questionnaire, direct observation and discussions with related personnel. This information is important to know for strengthening rural urban linkage in the market area. Market center study is a key issue relating to the economics development of developing countries. Nepal has for a long time focused development programs in large urban centers, while attention to the lower end of urban hierarchy is relatively 6 new and yet to receive high priority. The small market centers with population size9000and below are widely dispersed throughout the country and have intimate linkage with agriculture. Thus they provide best opportunity for stimulating production in the hinterland by acting as an important institutional arrangement for facilitating the market of agricultural produce, distributing the farm produce and consumer goods and providing the linkage between vast rural areas and market areas with the improvement of transportation, communication and other development facilities.
