The growth of urban population and rapid urbanization has caused increase in size of city to accommodate migrants and natural growth. In the urban areas, slums are the one that act as shock absorbers for the rising growth of urbanization. Slums are the result of unfulfilled housing demand; they often encroach upon untenable land with poor infrastructure settlements. Another phenomenon of the formation of slums is associated with settlements that were villages earlier and due to city expansion are considered in the city limits. The characteristics of these settlements are very different from the slums of the inner city. The government has taken several initiatives to cope up with their needs to improve the condition of slums. However, all slums are not identical and requires different improvement approach as per their character. The primary aim of the research is to develop redevelopment framework for those slums that were villages earlier and are presently part of urban area that are addressed as RUSS (Rural Urban Slum Settlements). To achieve this, the research develops slum typology through spatial study to identify physical diversity by the use of spatial metrics indicators. Among the two typologies, one typology referred as RUSS is considered and detailed morphological characteristics is studied. The indicators of morphology are used for study of slum redevelopment and further, set of indicators are used for assessment of slum redevelopment models in India. There are various slum redevelopment models used in India that works on economic, physical and social aspects. The assessment of redevelopment model is based on diverse morphological characteristics of RUSS. research studies the spatial character of slums in Baroda, Gujarat in India. The slum typology was developed based on selected spatial indicators that are frequently used to study slum. The research was conducted at two level i.e., temporal and settlement level. The temporal level information helped in selecting slums. The slums are mapped that are located on the hazardous location (conventional slum) and located close to the farmland and were villages earlier (rural-urban slum settlement). The result confirms the different morphological characteris
