Huge bands of Northern India, the relatively dark in the night shooting of 2012, and now covers a huge new urban areas from 2016. According to a forecast by Oxford Economics Global City Forecast, of the 20 fastest growing cities in the period from 1919-2015 years, 14 of them are in India. According to a forecast by Oxford Economics, Surat North-Western province of Gujarat will grow by about 10% per year until 2030, "making it the fastest-growing city in our global database".

Images of India are part of the "Earth at night", presented by space flight Center, NASA "Goddard", which aims to provide "the most precise, but complex understanding of the structures of human settlement on the planet".

Satellite images of the Earth at night - often called "night lights" - interesting to the public and are a tool for basic research for nearly 25 years, " NASA said in a statement. "They provided a wide, beautiful picture, showing how people have shaped the planet and illuminated the darkness. Produced every 10 years or so these cards has spawned hundreds of pop culturalpolicy and dozens of economic, social and environmental studies ."

Miguel Roman, a scientist from centre of the flight, said that his team is able to "track cyclical changes, caused by repetitive actions, such as festive lighting and seasonal migration". "We can also track gradual changes associated with urbanization, migration, economic changes and electrification. The fact that we can keep track of all these different aspects of the underpinning of what defines a city is simply overwhelming," he said in a statement.
