Chandigarh

 

Chandigarh is a modern city and is located at 240 kms from Delhi. The famous French architect Le Corbusier planned this beautiful city. It serves as the capital of two states-Punjab and Haryana. However, administratively, the city is not under the jurisdiction of either state. It is administered by the centre government and hence classified as a Union Territory. Chandigarh enjoys the natural advantage of being the capital city of two states and is home to a fair amount of business and commercial activity

 

Chandigarh's own industrial growth together with the growth in adjacent areas of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh has made the city highly attractive to the banks and financial institutions and their presence in turn gives further boost to the industrial growth and investments in the city. Further, various sectoral policies have been put in place relating to information technology, biotechnology and special economic zones among others with a view to attract investment.
