About Pune

Called the Queen of the Deccan, and the cultural capital of Maharashtra, Pune is a city with a future that promises to be as interesting as its history. According to a recent opinion poll conducted for The Times of India by leading market research firm IMRB across the country's eight largest urban cities, Pune ranked as the second best place to live in. Surrounded by verdant hills and beautiful lakes, the city has a temperate climate throughout the year and is among the greenest urban areas in the country. It is the center of traditional Marathi culture, in which education, arts and theatre are given pride of place. Pune has one of India's oldest universities and its numerous colleges attract both Indian and international students, which is probably why it is called the Oxford of the East. 

Pune is fast emerging as a prominent location for high-tech, IT and manufacturing companies to expand in. The city has the eighth largest metropolitan economy and the sixth highest per capita income in the country. Some of the most reputed VLSI leaders have design centers located in Pune. These include Applied Micro, Imagination Technologies, Intel, LSI, Marvell Semiconductors, Nvidia and QLogic. Pune is the largest automotive hub in India with companies like Tata Motors, General Motors, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Bajaj Auto, Force Motors, and Volkswagen having their design and manufacturing operations located in Pune.
