Ghaziabad is an industrial city 19km east of Delhi and is the fastest growing city in India.
Ghaziabad benefited from government-backed industrial development in the 1980s owing to its strategic location on the old Grand Trunk Road from Bangladesh to Afghanistan. Today, Ghaziabad plays host to numerous manufacturers of railway and defence products. Bicycles, tapestries, glassware, pottery and paint are also produced in the area.
The fast growing population is fuelling a construction boom. Continuing development, which includes excellent transport links, is making Ghaziabad an attractive city for workers commuting to New Delhi and Noida to buy luxury apartments.
Ghaziabad is also a centre for higher education, with private and government institutions offering courses in law, engineering and management.
Ghaziabad is the main entrance from Delhi to Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous state. The Ganges and the Yamuna – the two holiest rivers in India – run through the district as well as the Hindon – just 2km outside the city – and the Kali.
