dc.description.abstract Everyone, in the remotest rural area, has neighbors. Social relations between neighbors are a significant form of social exchange. The study of neighboring, neighborhood care is important for several reasons." We can do without our friends but we cannot do without our neighbors"- goes the popular saying. Certain groups in society- those who lack social power, women, the poor, socially isolated elder- depends on various forms of support and care in order to maintain an independent existence and not enter institutional care. The mobility and heterogeneity of the city’s population contributed to the general impersonality which characterized the social relationship of urban neighbors. In this process, secondary relationship replaced primary contact, bonds of kinship weakened and the traditional basis of social solidarity declined. Length of residence, age, marital status, participation in other formal and non-formal group, socio economic status etc. influence on individual’s predisposition to make use of the existing opportunities for neighborliness. The study is divided into total of six chapters. In chapter 1, the research introducers the background, objectives, justifications & methodology of the study. Chapter 2 focuses the current literature on the topic to conduct the research. Chapter 3 states the theoretical framework. Chapter 4 focuses the qualitative (Sample Survey) and quantitative (case study) findings of the study. Chapter 5 analysis the findings of both studies. Chapter 6 draws the conclusion and suggests way out the problem. The main objectives of my study is to find out the impact of urbanization on the transformation of the relationship of urban neighbours and also examine, which age group and which class play an important role in neighborly relation. My study area is Mohammadpur in Dhaka city because of its mixedv social characteristics. I clustered Mohammadpur area into three different neighbourhood, Iqbal road, Chan Miah housing, Geneva camp. Each neighbourhood represents different class of people. The study is quantitative & qualitative in nature.
