You may have often noticed roads wrapped around the outskirts of Delhi lined with dense green trees going for miles at a stretch, dipping and curving around the city like a green ribbon. Well, that’s Noida for you. Noida or if you want the technical term, New Okhla Industrial Development Authority, first came into picture in the 1970’s under the controversial emergency period by the visionary initiatives of Sanjay Gandhi. The city was set up as part of an urban thrust and was a systematically planned Indian city under the management of NOIDA. It was to be an industrial extension when it initially came into the picture but lately it has emerged as a top IT hub and IT-enabled services industry with several multinational companies setting up offices here. Not only IT but BPO, BTO, KPO, pharma, financial services, banking and auto as well.
The city of NOIDA is well connected with Delhi and Gurgaon, paving smooth toll roads in between for easy commute. After the inauguration of Expressway the city has also become approachable to Greater Noida and Agra as well. Metro services runs throughout the city and more plans have been made to further the connectivity. Noida has grown overnight welcoming luxury residential towers, private schools, five star hotels, hospitals, shopping malls, universities and film city to swell its skyline. Over the years the city has become an attraction for new malls and multiplexes, bringing with them international brands in fashion and lifestyle.
