This article is about Chandigarh, The City Beautiful. This city is known for its greenery and excellently planned French architecture of Chandigarh by Le Corbusier which augments the prettiness of this city. But what truly makes Chandigarh “beautiful” are the affectionate and happy-go-lucky people you find in the corners of this city. They are unfailingly warm and welcoming, just like the weather here.
Chandigarh is the home of a diversity of people belonging to various places and classes, numerous of them are the inhabitants of Chandigarh only. People here are forever smiling, laughing and having fun in their lives. With full of broad-minded people, Chandigarh is regarded as one of the most fashionable cities of India. Being the capital of Punjab, Chandigarh gets the passion and essence of Punjabis as well. Here you’ll see the youth enjoying happening music, popular clothing, having fun with their pals and enjoying various types of food also.
Talking about the geographical structure, Chandigarh is one of the first planned city in the country and is spread across 114 sq.km. and the neighboring cities of Chandigarh, Panchkula, and Mohali altogether are called ‘TriCity’. The geographical structure of this city plays a really crucial role in making Chandigarh as the 2nd working hub after Delhi. Because of the lack of good working opportunities in the surrounding states such as J&K, Himachal Pradesh and with cities such as Kurali, Kharar, and Mohali, Chandigarh has a vast diversity of workforce always coming. Moreover, the UT of Chandigarh is the capital of both states of Punjab and Haryana, which makes the city a major employer in the UT. Majority of the population of Chandigarh are serving the government. This is one of the foremost reason why reason why at times Chandigarh is called as the “Pensioner’s Paradise!”. The 2nd source of income of the people of Chandigarh is the dealing which takes place here in multiple industries.
The preponderance of the industries in which people deal are paper, basic chemical, metals alloys and machinery and the secondary chief industries are food industry, metal industry, And transportation etc.
Information Technology and Tourism have undergone a rapid growth in the past few years, and have beheld many new startups in the past couple of years, and most of them are trafficking in the Information Tech, Marketing, and Sales only. The Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation Limited or CITCO have played a really big role in maintaining the perfect atmosphere for budding entrepreneurs. CITCO helps the small-scale entrepreneurs by proffering them the financial aid and helping them with industrial tools and raw inputs.
Chandigarh has got finest coworking spaces for freelancers, entrepreneurs and startups because of various amenities available here. In the end, I’d like to say that Chandigarh is one of the best areas to work and grow your own business.
