The authors of this paper have tried to explore the prevalence of the Rural-urban continuum in Kerala. The spatial pattern of settlement in Kerala, makes it a unique state in India. The state is characterised by  linear but densely agglomerated stretches of land where there is  is practically no distinction between an urban area and a rural area, Using the methodology framework used by Firoz (2014), an attempt is made in this paper to examine Kerala’s adherence to the RUC model.
