Indore is the business capital of central India. It lies in the Namada River Valley on the Malwa plateau in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It has a population of about 2 million people.
Indore reached its cultural peak during the Holkar Dynasty in the 18th century when it was firmly established as an important trade route between New Delhi and the Deccan in the south.
It is now a bustling city with a thriving economy. The state government is running an initiative to encourage local and international investors to set up base in Indore, and has hosted a successful Global Investors Summit.
The initiative, which includes tax breaks and attractive land deals, has been largely successful. Automobile manufacturers, IT companies, pharmaceutical and textiles manufacturers have flocked to Indore to set up base there.
Indore, and nearby Pithampur, is fast becoming a hub for the automobile industry in India.
The Centre for Advanced Technology was established to bolster technology research in Indore.
