INDORE: City of Holkars on IT path

Situated on one of India’s oldest pilgrimage routes from Mahakaal at Ujjain on river Kshipra, to Omkareshwar on the river Narmada and onwards to Rameshwaram, Indore was a convenient resting-place. It was on the route of the Marathas of Deccan on their way to North India. These Maratha guerilla warriors were in constant battle with the Mughal Empire. Their army transit camps here attracted the local Zamindars (landlords) who, drawn by the promise of lucrative trade, settled in the villages on the banks of the Khan and Saraswati rivers, thereby laying the foundation of this commerce center in 1715.

In 1741, temple of Indreshwar was erected in the town, from which it derives the name Indore. The trade center grew rapidly under the Holkar dynasty (1733-1818). The remains of their two century old palace still stand in the main square (called Rajwada). The city became the capital of the Indore princely state in 1818 after the British forces under Sir John Malcolm defeated the Holkars led by Rani Krishanbai Holkar at Mahidpur. She signed the treaty of Mandsaur by which the control of Indore went in the hand of the East India Company. Between 1948 and 1956, Indore served as the summer capital of the former Madhya Bharat state. Currently, it is the commercial capital of MP.

Old time traders love to describe this ancient city of the Holkars as a mini-Bombay.

It was the first choice of Bharati Tele Net Limited when the company decided to launch the first private sector basic telephony services project in the country.

That the company has not looked back since then only validates Indore’s status as one of the right choices for IT -related projects. With its trading links with Bombay, healthy thriving commerce is certainly an integral part of Indore. But, this commercial advantage of the city is multiplied several times over by the presence of some elite educational institutions like the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), which has a special focus on IT and the Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya (DAVV) that offer a range of specialized courses in most of educational streams.

Beside, there are 13 institutes and 14 colleges offering a diverse range of courses. Over the years, Indore has also graduated from being a purely trader’s town to a hub of industrial activity. The Pithampur growth center promoted by Madhya Pradesh State Industrial Development Corporation in its neighborhood has already earned its nick-name as the ‘Detroit of India’, with several auto majors rolling out their vehicles from their assembly lines.

It has an already established Software Technology Park and one of the most creditable firsts in the field of Coming from the house of Nai Duniya, a leading Hindi daily of the region, this is the first Internet portal in Hindi and it has pioneered the use of this language by millions of rural masses on the Net at a time when the global fraternity of netizens is growing at a galloping pace. So innovation is native to Indore, specially when it concerns the millions of the masses.

Indore has two five star hotels and a whole array of restaurants and hotels to suit every budget. A large number of well known clubs with excellent infrastructure, stadium, water sports center and cultural groups are responsible for Indore being a very lively city.

MY Hospital, Choithram Hospital, upcoming Bombay Hospital along with a Medical College, Dental College and a number of modern private hospitals has meant to the availability of the best medical facilities in the state.

The climate remains moderate throughout the year. Peaceful law and order situation, peaceful industrial relations along with a stable political environment and efficient administration makes Indore an attractive investment destination.
