Top 8 areas to invest in Gurgaon

Top areas to invest in gurgaon

The ‘Singapore of India’ or the ‘Millennium City’, Gurugram was not more than a village back in 1979 when it was separated from Faridabad for administrative convenience. Back then, Gurugram was completely devoid of good transport facilities, public utilities or even basic parameters of development. However, in 1991 when India announced LPG reforms and opened the gates of economy for the MNCs, Gurugram managed to attract massive investments owing to its proximity to South Delhi, availability of land and easy land acquisition process. Riding on the wave of post liberalization boom, Gurgaon thrived and soon became an IT Hub and one of the most developed cities of India. By 2013, nearly half of Fortune 500 companies had set their offices in Gurugram, including American Express, IBM, Google, Motorola, Dell, Microsoft etc. Soon, Gurugram became a leading destination for younger workforce which escalated housing demands, infrastructure development and led to the emergence of renowned social amenities.
