Madhapur is a locality in Hyderabad that is right in the middle of its IT hub. It consists of the IT SEZ-rich Hitech City, as well as the residential areas surrounding it. Madhapur is located in north-west Hyderabad, in the Rangareddy district, to the south of Kukatpally. Hitech City lies on the western part of the locality, and it is flanked by the Durgam Cheruvu Lake in the south.
Even in the early 90s, Madhapur was a sleepy village on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Madhapur owes its rise in status as a prime residential locality in Hyderabad, mostly to the IT boom in the city over the two decades.
There is a huge influx of young IT professionals to Hyderabad, due to the thriving IT industry here. With over dozens of multinational, regional and national companies being set up here, Madhapur is at the heart of this IT industry.
