Chandigarh is a city and Union Territory, in addition to being the capital city of Punjab and Haryana. The city is famous for being one of the most well-planned cities in India’s post Independence era, designed by international architects and city planners.
Its historical past dates back to the Harappan civilization and is also known as the dream city of Jawarahal Nehru. Today, with a population of over 1.6 million inhabitants, Chandigarh, like Gurugaon, has one of India’s highest per-capita incomes.
Chandigarh is one of India’s wealthiest towns and has been ranked 4th in the top cities of IT services and outsourcing, placing it ahead of cities such as Beijing. The government sector is one of the city’s major employers, although the major occupation in Chandigarh remains business and trade.
