DESTINATION DETAILS
Gurgaon
It's been a long haul for Gurgaon. From being a sleepy little village, said to have been gifted to Guru Dronacharya by his students, the legendary Pandavas and Kauravas of the epical Mahabharata, to being one of the fastest growing and most progressive of all the National Capital Regions scattered around Delhi, apart from being the fastest rising city in north India. Defining its rapid growth is the leap in population (57,085 in 1971), which stood at 136,000 by the 1991 census and is estimated to increase to 1.6 million by the year 2011, thanks to its rapid urbanization, commercialization and prospects for future development.

Situated close to Delhi it has an excellent linkages by rail and air, Gurgaon is a beehive of commercial and infrastructural activity today thanks to the government's pursuit of a planned 'integrated city'. In the 90s, the city reaped the fruits of its development policies (in conjunction with the opening up of India's economy to the entry of MNCs), as it witnessed the arrival of a host of prestigious corporates from Delhi's congested and cramped environs.

The past decade has seen a plethora of MNC's, such as Coke, GE, Pepsi, Microsoft, IBM, British Airways and Swissair, as well as Indian stalwarts such as Ranbaxy and Hindustan Lever Ltd, heading south, as Delhi's concrete jungle gets into a stranglehold of pollution and lethal congestion, taking its toll on productivity and future expansion plans in terms of office space. The multinationals were quick to capitalize on land prices, which are cheaper than Bangalore or Mumbai. Gurgaon's spacious environs and glitzy corporate complexes have made it the ideal location for their corporate headquarters. Keeping in view its strategic proximity to Delhi, the Haryana government is readying itself to make Gurgaon the new Silicon Valley of India, as it mulls over establishing the seat of its first deemed IT university, or the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT).

As a major hub for the BPO industry today, Gurgaon has witnessed the arrival of thousands of professionals who have settled in the massive condos, service apartments and housing colonies, marked by international standards, that have come up around town. Catering to the new demands of a sharply rising affluence amongst its citizenry, a cavalcade of shopping malls have mushroomed along the arterial road of the town. 
 
New Delhi
Delhi has always been intrinsically identified with power and imperialism... The eternal yamuna River bears witness to the glorious and tumultuous 5,000-year-old history of Delhi, whose old ruins proclaim a majestic and grand past and whose present pulsates vibrantly with the ever-flowing life of India.
 
In the six decades since the creation of New Delhi as the capital of independent India, the city has undergone a tremendous change. The total urban population of Delhi now exceeds 10 million. The city has exploded in all directions, beyond the confines of Lutyen's wide, tree-lined avenues. Since independence, the influx into the city has not ceased. Industrialists, entrepreneurs and migrant labourers from all over India have come to Delhi in search of livelihood and success. The cultivated fields, which till recently could be seen on the outskirts of the city, have been developed into residential colonies and commercial complexes.

The line of distinction between Old and New Delhi has begun to blur; north, south, east and west Delhi are more prevalent terms of demarcation. The facilities and opportunities available in Delhi have attracted Indians from far-flung corners of the country, making it a melting pot of sorts. On the other hand, the presence of diplomatic and trade missions, the growing number of multi-national companies and foreign investors, and the influx of tourists and visiting professionals, have given the city a cosmopolitan air.
 
Mumbai
Mumbai, earlier known as Bombay, is the commercial capital of India. This modern and cosmopolitan city, formed collectively of seven islands, is the capital of the western state of Maharashtra. The city generates 40% of India's GNP, its port handles 50% of the country's foreign trade and nearly 40% of India's textile industry is located here- clearly establishing its credentials as the financial hub of India

The city has changed hands through several dynasties of rulers- from the Muslims to the Portuguese, and Marathas to the British, but it was during the maritime trade empire of the latter that Mumbai became a thriving port city. Asia's first railway line linked Mumbai and Thane and brought about a revolution in the way people travelled. Further more, during the American Civil War, Britain's supply of cotton was interrupted and this led to Mumbai's cotton boom. The inauguration of the Suez Canal in 1869 was also the catalyst for the huge expansion surge in the city, both financially and geographically. Through a series of land reclamation measures, the city has grown from the original seven islands into one mass.

Bangalore
Alternatively known as 'India's Silicon Valley' or 'The Pub City', Bangalore is the fastest growing city in Asia. The capital of the state of Karnataka, Bangalore is located 1000 metres above sea level and is well connected to other major cities. It is home to well over 6 million people, and a base for 10,000 industries.

Today, Bangalore is the undisputed Silicon Valley of India because of the large number of Information Technology companies located in the city. Infosys and Wipro, India's 2nd and 3rd largest software companies, have the largest campus in the Electronics City. The cluster of software firms in Bangalore accounts for more than 55 per cent of the one billion dollars worth of India's total exports of software. The cluster in Bangalore has attracted software engineers not only from the neighbouring states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, but also from the north of Indiaan now even foreign nationals are working for the Indian companies..

The presence of the renowned Indian Institute of Science, which pioneers research in engineering and science, and other such institutions, provide the ambience sought by knowledge intensive industries such as software. The Bangalore University, with its 14 engineering colleges, is a fertile training ground for young software engineers.

The presence of research institutes and the availability of high tech professionals are the two main reasons for the phenomenal growth of software industries in Bangalore. Added to this is the presence of large-scale science and engineering based industries in the city. The headquarters of several public manufacturing heavy industries, such as Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, National Aerospace Laboratories, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Bharat Earth Movers Limited and Hindustan Machine Tools, are situated in Bangalore. In June 1972, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) was established, under the Department of Space, with its headquarters in the city.
 
Hyderabad
Hyderabad is a happening city these days! The IT giants Infosys, Wipro, Microsoft and Honeywell have made it their home! It hosts the one and only Indian School of Business whose alumni walk away with INR 10 million plus salaries. The International Convention Center had the privilege of hosting the 39th annual general meeting of the Asian Development Bank. And soon to come up in Hyderabad, is India's first SEZ (special economic zone) for IT, the INR 35 billion Outer Ring Road highway project connecting the city and its suburbs to an international airport.

Hyderabad has been transformed from a provincial backwater into a significant player in the global economy. The city is giving way to a unique mix that has a little of everything, plus something more, which is perhaps a characteristic of an increasingly globalised existence. Hyderabad is racing to become global in every sense. At long last, Hyderabad is getting its fair share of fame, competing to make India a developed country.
Hyderabad's burgeoning high-tech economy is being converted into huge profits. Another new addition is the Genome Valley, home to more than 100 biotechnology companies involved in training, research and manufacture. Multinationals such as UBS and Franklin Templeton have already ear-marked sites within the district, and real estate prices have surged. Although the pace of the city's current economic growth is unprecedented, its role as a hub for international commerce goes back centuries. Thanks to its strategic location in the heart of the subcontinent, Hyderabad has long been a trading crossroads; it was and continues to remain one of the world's leading centres for fabrics, diamonds and, above all, pearls.
