The ruthful and regretful conditions in Ghajarieh era provided the grounding for the changes and evolutions in the public urban spaces in Pahlavi era (1920-1941) which is per se regarded as the outset of a modern era in Iranian city building history. One of the important issues which cannot be overlooked regarding this issue is the subject of citizenship rights in the aforementioned era. According to the documents and studies which have been collected and performed by the corresponding author of the current research paper the citizenship rights can be divided into three sets which are civil rights, political rights and social rights and what is of more relevance to the current study has been taken into consideration to be studied further. The discussion results indicate that in Pahlavi era the citizenship rights have not been observed to the extent it could be perceived as satisfactory by the people and a substrate of the people who enjoyed much wealth and were very rich or had ties to the king’s court enjoyed a great deal of privileges and a well social rights status. The current study methodology is based on documentary researches, library and field studies.
