Whenever someone talks about India’s IT destinations, I am sure no other names than Bangalore and Hyderabad come to mind. But soon, Indore might be known as India’s next big IT destination. The city, which is known as one of the cleanest cities in India and is famous for its lip-smacking poha, is on its way to becoming the country’s biggest IT destination. Let’s see and know how that is going to be possible.
Indore: India’s Next Big IT Destination
Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, said that Indore will soon replace popular IT destinations in India like Bengaluru and Hyderabad. He said that because of better working conditions and cleanliness, the city is attracting investors across all sectors with the brand image it has created. The state has about four IT parks and Special Economic Zones (SEZs). Also, major IT names like Infosys and Tata are coming to Indore.
This remark was made by CM Shivraj just before the inauguration of the 7th edition of the Invest Madhya Pradesh-Global Investors Summit (GIS) in Indore. He said this while having a one-on-one conversation with various industrialists and investors. The city of Indore is already known as the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh. The investors’ summit is expected to bring more investments to the city and the state.

Useful And Friendly Policy
In the meeting, Rekha Menon, Accenture India Chairperson, mentioned that Madhya Pradesh’s IT policy towards the IT industry has always been friendly and useful. Accenture arrived in Indore six months ago and plans to expand its operations in the state. More than 5,000 businessmen and leaders of several international industry organisations, as well as 447 international delegates from 84 different countries, 401 foreign purchasers, and representatives from every G20 country are expected for the event.
The event’s main goals are: exhibiting the state’s industrial ecosystem; promoting state policies; consulting with industrial organisations to develop industry-friendly regulations; encouraging export potential; hosting buyer-seller meetings; and creating chances for collaboration. Top industrialists like Nadir Godrej of Godrej Industries, Noel Tata of Tata International, Nikhil R. Meswani of Reliance Industries, and many others were also present.
