India is a very popular country in the world, and we’d be looking at the top 10 richest places in India. Hardly would you find a continent of this world, where the country called India isn’t knowing. But while this country is chiefly known for its Bollywood industry, there are a lot of great places in the country that are worthwhile seeing.
In this article, we’d be taking a look at places like Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Surat, and Visakhapatnam. And the order in which we have listed these locations is also the order in which they are rich.
Top 10 Richest Places In India
Mumbai is hands-down the richest place in the whole of India. While we have people who may argue that New Delhi comes first, New Delhi isn’t actually the richest in India. Rather than being the richest in the country, we have New Delhi to be the second richest place in the whole of India.
Back to Mumbai, this city is not only the richest but also happens to be a highly populated place. It is currently the second-most populous city in the whole of India. And in addition, the city used to be the first most populous, sometimes ago.
2. New Delhi
Anyone who knows a little about India, would almost certainly have heard about New Delhi. When talking about the richest places in India, a city like this is not a thing you can afford to ignore. It is clearly not the first richest, but this doesn’t mean its wealth can be underestimated.
It is also worthwhile stating that New Delhi is a sister city to some other popular cities like Moscow and Beijing. And in addition, the city also happens to be a sister city to a city called Samarkand, in Uzbekistan. If you plan to visit some of the rich cities in India, we don’t think New Delhi is one of those you should leave out.
Kolkata is another rich city in India, although it is well-known among foreigners. This place also ranks as one of the most populous cities in India. Kolkata which happens to be a sister city to 10 different cities, is often referred to as the cultural capital of Kolkata. And if you have ever been to this place, you’d have no reason to doubt Kolkata is truly a rich place.
For people who watch a lot of football, Bengaluru may be known as the name of a football club, but it is not only a football club. Aside from being a football club, Bengaluru is also the name of a city in India. And not just any city, but a very rich and populous one. If we are to name the top 10 most populous cities in the country, we are very confident of the fact that Bengaluru would not be left out.
Chennai is another pretty rich place in India, and it also happens to be the capital of Tamil Nadu. The city has got one of the highest numbers of foreigners, among all cities in the country. In other words, foreigners reading this article should really take the city into consideration.
Aside from being a rich place, the city also happens to house a lot of great educational institutions, some of which are: University of Madras, IIT Madras, Madras Institute of Technology, Madras Medical College, Madras Veterinary College, and Madras Christian College.
Hyderabad is a very lovely place in India, but not only that, but it also happens to be a pretty rich city. The city is a highly populated place, although its population can not be compared to that of places like Mumbai and New Delhi. In 2011, the population of the city was stated to be about 6,8 million, and this number has grown significantly.
While Mumbai might be the richest place in Maharashtra, it is not the only highly rich place in the state. We also have Pune to be another highly wealthy city in the state. This city is dominated by Hinduism, although we have a significant number of Muslims in the city. We find this place to be a great place for someone interested in catching fun, regardless of whether you are from within or outside India. However, when it comes to population, Pune is not a city capable of competing with Mumbai.
Some time ago, Ahmedabad used to be the capital of Gujarat, although it still remains the largest city in that state. When it comes to population, the city is not also a place you can underestimate. As of 2011, it was stated that there are well over 6 million people occupying the place. Ahmedabad has got six sisters cities, and they are namely: Columbus (Ohio, United States), Guangzhou (Guangdong, China), Port Louis (Mauritius), Astrakhan (Astrakhan Oblast, Russia), Ulsan (Yeongnam, South Korea), and Jersey City (New Jersey, United States).
Surat happens to be another city in Gujarat, and this place is one of the richest in India. Anyone who has been to this place would agree on it being a rich city, although not many are aware of it being among the top 10 richest places in India.
There are a lot of prominent people who are from Surat, and some of them include Laljibhai Patel (Chairman of Dharmanandan Diamonds Pvt. Limited), Mufaddal Saifuddin (religious leader of the Dawoodi Bohra), Gunvant Shah (Educationist and columnist), Bhagwatikumar Sharma (Author and journalist), Farooq Sheikh (Actor and television presenter), and Virji Vora (businessman known as “merchant prince”).
As of the time of writing this article, the city called Visakhapatnam happens to be the 10th richest place in India. However, it is not impossible for this city to drop down in the next few years, as cities occupying the 11th, 12th, and 13th positions are also growing excellently.
That’s all about the richest places in India.
