Gurgaon, in Haryana, is one of the rising urban centres of the world, and one of the leading industrial zones of India. With rapid urbanisation, literally rising up from the ground, Gurgaon is often plagued with teething issues such as power outages and to a lesser extent lack of infrastructure, but is nevertheless growing at such an alarming rate that it is a destination that has become hard to ignore. Gurgaon now houses a large number of Fortune 500 companies, and is the city with the third highest per capita income in India.
Multi-national companies in particular find it highly advantageous to be situated in the city, as it provides easy access to political decision makers and lower setup costs and times for industrial activities and factories. The city is one of the most important offshoring and outsourcing destinations in the world.
Life in Gurgaon provides access to all modern facilities, including sports, various restaurant chains, many centers for entertainment and performing arts, as well as temples, mosques, churches and gurudwaras. Gurgaon's high density of hospitals has also made it a popular destination for medical tourism.
