About Indore

Regarded as the commercial capital of the state, this 15th century riverside village has come a long way. From commerce, finance, media, art, research, technology, and education, Indore has aggressively exerted its significance in Madhya Pradesh.

Over the years, Indore has established itself as a strong industrial base, with the help of its satellite townships, Pithampur and Dewas. Many privatization initiatives like the country's first toll road and private telephone network (Airtel) has seen Indore at the forefront of liberalization. With well-developed infrastructure, transport facilities, and cheap labor, the city is also regarded as the educational capital of central India. It is the only city in India that has an IIT as well as an IIM, ensuring a regular inflow of skilled professionals.

Prosperity has been kind to this city, as it nests upon rich black soil, making Indore the fourth largest cotton textile industry in India. Indore is also home to the Madhya Pradesh Stock Exchange. Apart from having the reputation of being a financial, industrial, and textile hub, Indore is also an excellent tourist district. It's neighbour, Mandu, a city of palaces and lakes, is a hot-spot for tourists.

With a booming financial, trading, and industrial sector, Indore defines its own blend of history and rapid future modernization. It is this blend that has made Indore's real estate market, the most expensive in the state.
