Abstract: In the past century, industrialisation and urbanization have created many environmental problems like air, water and soil pollution. As the result of soil desurfacing by brick kilns the soil fertility is affected. Increasing population and human interventions are responsible factors for environmental degradation. In the National capital region construction activity is on the peak and for this requirement for the bricks has increased many times. The focus of this study is to map and identify the desurfaced soils due to brick kilns in Jhajjar and Rohtak districts which lies in the NCR in the years 2007 and 2012. The desurfaced area of 2007 and 2012 is digitized and map is developed.
