Top 10 Wealthiest Cities in India

326

[Updated – Sept 2014]

We had earlier listed the top 10 wealthiest cities in India in 2009-10 based on the average Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) of city residents, (you can check out bottom half of the article) while we do not have the PPP data this time around, we  do have the GDP data that should help you understand which cities have the maximum wealth in total.

Here it is:

Rank City PPP GDP (in USD Bln)
1 Mumbai 209
2 Delhi 167
3 Kolkata 150
4 Bengaluru 83
5 Hyderabad 74
6 Chennai 66
7 Ahmedabad 64
8 Visakhapatnam 48
9 Pune 48
10 Surat 40
11 Jaipur 24
12 Lucknow 22
13 Nagpur 15
14 Indore 14
15 Patna 11

Here is the visual format that will give you a better picture

Wealthiest Indian Cities

[Earlier in 2009-10]

{Update: The following rankings are based on consensus done in 2001, and have been correctly pointed out to us by one of our readers D7Y. We will be judicious to provide readers with latest data going forward.}

Any Guesses?

I hear most of you saying it is undoubtedly the financial Capital of India Mumbai.

But you are wrong, that is not the right answer. I was also quite surprised when I read it, but immediately sense prevailed

Chandigarh is actually the wealthiest City in India

(source)

Wealthiest Cities in India

Dont be surprised, that is actually true. Although Mumbai has the largest quantum of money, it is also the most populace city with majority of them living below poverty line. Mumbai may probably have as many beggars compared to rest of India put together (this is just a guess I am making without any factual backing up of information)

Wealth of a city can actually be calculated based on wealth per capita (total wealth divided by total number of people). A more standard term for comparing wealth between countries is PPP (Purchasing Power Parity)

So from that perspective, Chandigarh seems to more average wealth per person than any other city.

I hope that puts to rest the question of why Mumbai is NOT the wealthiest cities.

Here are the Top 10 Wealthiest Cities in India

  1. Chandigarh
  2. Panaji
  3. Delhi
  4. Valparai
  5. Greater Mumbai
  6. Pune
  7. Ludhiana
  8. Chennai
  9. Shimla
  10. Jalandhar

Surprisingly, no Bangalore or Hyderabad feature in the list, while it is dominated by “B” cities like Chandigarh, Valparai, Ludhiana, Shimla and Jalandhar.

This just goes to show that there is more wealth in Towns than in the cities !

I am happy, Pune features in the list :)

  1. hemant Arora says

    Patna is the top city of India

  2. rj says

    Haryana:
    GDP per capita: $2,009
    Highest per capita income in major states. It also has the largest number of rural millionaires in India.Haryana is also one of the most economically developed regions in South Asia. Haryana is India’s largest manufacturer of passenger cars, two-wheelers, and tractors.

    1. achal says

      No man Chennai is the largest manufacture of cars and two wheeler’s , Haryana is not a major state and Tamil nadu is the richest major state.

  3. stevard says

    As far as I noticed in India no doubt New Delhi NCR (Gurgaon and Noida) is most developed cities which is definitely pole apart from any other cities in India including delhi,Mumbai,Chennai and Bangalore.Thus I will rank in the following order-
    1)Gurgaon
    2)Noida
    3)Mumbai
    4)New Delhi
    5) Bangalore
    6)Chennai
    7)Chandigarh
    8)Pune
    9)Kochi
    10)Ahmedabad
    11)Surat
    12)Kolkata
    13)Hyderabad
    14)Jaipur
    15)other Ncr’s of New Delhi

    1. Sun says

      Hyderabad and Bangalore are far better cities to live than Mumbai or Delhi NCR. I am saying this because I am a Delhite who is now working in Hyderabad. Mumbai is nice, but that’s only South Mumbai and a few other posh areas… rest all other areas are quite normal. Definitely there are more job opportunities in Delhi NCR and Mumbai, but quality of life is not that great. Hyderabad has the best infrastructure in the country today. Even better than Delhi NCR.

  4. Khumsum Payaja says

    All that you are talking of is meaningless unless you include that great city of Gondia. Gondia should be included in top 10 cities of India. It is so clean, neat and wealthy city, how come you have missed on it? It lies in the eastern most part of Maharashtra and is 150 kms from ultra modern metrolpolis of Nagpur.
    Nagpur infact is the no. 1 city of India. In terms Human Index development, per capita income and overall quality of life. It lies at geographical centre of India. In fact India’s zeroth mile is located in Nagpur.
    …. Khumsum

  5. vinod says

  14. Gaurav Tamhane says

    Check your facts boss. mumbai, all the slumdwellers included, accounted for 16% of Indias gdp. Per capita income is Rs 4,86,000 by one estimate, though the distribution is inequitable. that's the Highest in all of india coming in at about $9000 per capita.

    1. Sun says

      that’s because the stock market is located in mumbai. take it out and the gdp contribution will dwindle. So the GDP contribution is coming from trade income and not from actual production

  15. bhupinder says

  22. Nishant says

    Patna must be in the list.

    One of the developed cities of India having great facilities(Patna). In my opinion by 2025, these 5 cities would be the most developed one-
    1>Bangalore- The city is having a very large scope of development. The first city of India having an IT industry.
    2> Ahemedabad- The city is currently one of the India’s best but can do better development. It has a nice geographical condition and is suitable for many industrial sector.
    3>Mumbai- The city having humid climate suitable for cotton textile. Port facilities are also available. As the city has already steps of development but has potential of more development.
    4> Patna- We know that the whole Bihar was in danger of BPL due to less development. But the Goverment has been changed and the high development has been welcomed. The same applies on the capital. If any body goes in Patna, he can see the development. The city is emerging into the development and grown GDP.
    5> Chennai- City having port facilities. Has steps of development but by 2020, the scopes are increasing. The city has hot and humid climate but that doesn’t harms its potential.

  23. Jithin Jose says

    I feel like rianting at all of you.The word "Wealthiest cities" makes me feel laughing because all the cities referred here have more population and when these wealth is divided into more people, there is no point in checking out about the wealthy status.Cochin is a city which is more developed than any of the other cities mentioned here and have very less population.Kerala has the highest HDI and these cities cannot be even close to Cochin.Cochin is more developed and advanced and if you don't know something, I'll say more than half of Delhites live in slums.Google it and you'll find it.My neighbour uncle(Bangalore) says even Bangalore is not developed as Cochin and I know it as I've a flat at Bangalore too.Mumbai isn't a comparison here if we are talking about advancement but as we are talking about wealth of a city and not about advanced cities yeah maybe these are the cities but it doesn't even count to be honest.

    If the ministers take interest to devolop Bangalore. It will be one of the greastest cities in the world, I can say in 2020 it can beat newyork, london and tokyo.
    people should have a knowledge of garbage sepration like glass,tin,batteries,food, plastics and genral waste[where we can insenerate] and others such as glass,tin and plastics could be send for recycling.
    first citizens should take a Oath that they will not throw garbage on the road, they will not spit on the roads and urinate on the walls.
    If any of the cities has no issues like this then I can say that is the richest city in India.

Because it is superior than others in all respects such as education, IT sector, mines center, cleanness, greenery, weather & climate, Temples (for moral peace), communication with other metros, coastal, population density (not more crowded) and many more. A progressive administration in the state have attracted major investors to the state. Bhubaneswar now is the 5th fastest growing city and 3rd best city for doing business.

  44. Aditya says

    Wow, this is such a stupid argument. Currently, all Indian cities are way behind in terms of infrastructure, per capita wealth, and education (relative to other world cities). Stop bickering, and perhaps try and achieve something – improve your city. More importantly, improve the thousands of villages in which the bulk of India’s population resides. Extend the same urban benefits to the those in the countryside. Just look at the People’s Republic of China for example; currently, even the poorest of rural Chinese laborers residing in the cities are able to get back home to their families in the countryside just in time for Spring Festival, using some of the world’s fastest and most advanced high-speed rail systems. For the Chinese, though they are diverse, provincial boundaries are absolutely meaningless. A city is not a world of its own to be relished – each city, with its beauty, wealth, and infrastructure, helps make the COUNTRY (yes, the country, not the PROVINCE) a better place. What do we have in India? A bunch of grimy, whining “regionalist” idiots who think their state has something which makes it the best in the world, or some other BS. Have some goddamn unity. Do you want another partition? No? Well, I suggest you behave in a more united fashion then. The Chinese are already giving the U.S. something to worry about. India? We’re still the punchline of diarrhea jokes (think of the “Delhi Belly” syndrome), and movies about slums (think Slumdog Millionaire). Further more, wouldn’t be nice if we could break out of the shackles of British colonialism and actuallt have a mutual language to communicate in besides English? Why do we hang on to this language so dearly? Why is the knowledge of English perceived as being superior to a knowledge of Hindi, or Tamil, or Assamese? If there was a way to bring together the citizens of India through a common language, native to the Subcontinent, I really think that would be one of the better developments of the past century. I’m a Tamizhan myself, but I simply wish people here in the South weren’t so strongly opposed to the mandatory learning of Hindi in schools; this is yet another sign of strong regionalism which needs to be eradicated. Mandating Standard Hindi as the lingua franca of the land would make communication easier, and more efficient, not to mention, it would greatly boost our sense of national strength and unity. Regional languages would not be lost – do you think Cantonese is lost? Do you believe the various regional languages of Spain, France, Italy, and China, are lost because of the mandating of Spanish, French, and Italian, and Mandarin, respectively as the presiding languages of communication? Clearly not. So why would such a thing occur in India?
    Another point: India’s population is expected to be the world’s largest by the year 2020. Tell me, is this good or bad…?

    OBVIOUSLY, IT’S A TRAVESTY. Do you think India will gain from such a boom in numbers? Again, that’s BS. As it stands, the vast majority of India’s people are not even close living “well”; adding more people to the mix will only aggravate the problem(s). And where is population growth most rampant? In the poorer states (mostly located in Northern India), where, if such a boom were to occur, we should get ready to see worse than sub-Saharan Africa conditions. I’m not even joking. So how exactly could we rid of this problem? Birth control? Education? More effective politicians? Mindset? How? It seems somewhat impossible now though, as we plunge headfirst into our own demise. You, the youth, are responsible for what happens to this nation over the next century. The effort starts at the grass-roots level; if you are to improve the nation, you must improve yourself, and in improving yourself, you will inevitably improve those around you. The politicians of modern India are tantamount to corrupt buffoons (read baboons). But, not all can be blamed on the politicians. Corruption also begins at the grass roots level, and spreads the system in an insidious manner. SO what will you do to curb this corrupt nature, seemingly ingrained into the psyche of Indians? Because, what you do, in unison with the actions of all other Indians, determines the quality of your cities, your life, and your country. What will you do from now until 2030 that will improve your city and nation? Claim how it’s better than other cities to support your stupid regional biases? Will you apishly shout “Punjab BEST!” or perhaps “Hydrebad RULEZZ”? Or will you strive forward, boldly accepting your city’s flaws, indeed, your flaws, and change its countenance? So go on, if we Indians wish to compete on a world stage, we must first stop competing each other, and start focusing on our collective development. Don’t compete with China. Don’t compete with Pakistan. Don’t compete with Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, or Andhra Pradesh. Compete with yourself, find a suitable means for your improvement, and go about the duty of improving your city and country.

    Yep, it’s a goddamn long post. But, I seriously needed to get these things off my chest. So if you would care to read it, and perhaps understand it for what it is, I encourage you to do so.

    Thanks.

    VIZAG city was identified as one of the ten fastest growing cities in the WORLD economically and demographically.The city has developed into a hub for many heavy industries.It is primarily an industrial city, apart from being a port city. It is also home to the Eastern Naval Command. Vizag is often referred to as The Jewel of The East Coast or The City of Destiny and is sometimes referred to as the “Goa of the East Coast.” Just like its west coast counterpart, it has beautiful virgin beaches, laterite hillocks, smooth roads and stunning landscape. Health-tourism is a fast developing industry.

    According to the August 8 report of the National Council of Applied Economic Research, the richest city in India is now Surat, ahead ofBangalore and Madras , with an average annual household income of Rs0.45 million (over $11,000 per year). 80 per cent of all diamonds sold anywhere in the world are polished in Surat ‘s 10,000 diamond units The only non-Jews in the Tel Aviv andJerusalem diamond bourse are Gujjus. Between 2004-5 and 2007-8 Surat’s middle class doubled in size and its poor reduced by a third. The fifth richest city in India is now Ahmedabad, ahead of Bombay and Delhi , and miles ahead of Calcutta . The percentage of man-days lost in Gujarat due to labour unrest is 0.42 per cent, the lowest in India . Of Gujarat ‘s 18,048 villages, 17,940 have electricity. Under Chief Minister Modi, the face of industrial Gujarat is changing. The world’s largest oil refinery is coming up in Jamnagar. Owned by Reliance, it already refines 660,000 barrels of oil a day and will double that this year. Thirty per cent of India ‘s cotton is grown in Gujarat , 40 per cent of India ‘s art-silk is manufactured in Surat , employing 0.7 million people. The world’s third largest denim manufacturer is Ahmedabad’s Arvind Mills. A KPMG report says 40 per cent of India ‘s pharmacy industry is based in Gujarat with companies like Torrent, Zydus Cadila, Alembic, Dishman and Sun Pharma. The state of Gujarat’s GDP has been growing at 12 per cent a year for the last 12 years, as fast as China ‘s. India’s wealthiest man, Mukesh Ambani of Reliance, is Gujarati. Forbes says he is the world’s fifth richest man, worth $43 billion. Azim Premji of Wipro, is Gujarati. He is the world’s 21st richest man, worth $17 billion. Ten of the 25 richest Indians are Gujarati. Some of the best business communities in India — Parsis, Jains, Memons, Banias, Khojas and Bohras — speak Gujarati. The two great leaders of the subcontinent, the Mahatma and the Quaid, were both Gujaratis from trading communities. One a Bania, the other a Khoja. Gujaratis number 55 million, five per cent of India ‘s population living on six per cent of surface area, but hold 30 per cent of all Indian stock. Gujaratis account for 16 per cent of all Indian exports and 17 per cent of GDP. JAI Ho!

  80. Bhargav Savaliya says

    First,How we decide Wealthiest city?
    According to me We should see that how much difference between wealth and poverty of in reference of all population. and also health service, Education level, income, employment. and we must keep an eye that how many people are happy with that city and like to live there? and also Government. If we see by economic view.

  81. pawan kumar says

    we feel proud to be an indian,sing national anthem ,salute national flag , support national cricket team , yet people of one state are not ready to accept others ….we are definitely moving towards a collapse. one must understand that some people of a state are bad and corrupt and they bring bad name for whole state.
    If we call ourselves indians then we must put our hands together and help them and me dream of our great leaders and freedom fighters true.

  82. Rohith krishna says

    Hyderabad has the costliest residential & business area in India. Jubilee hills,banjara hills,madhapur is the costliest area in India so i think hyderabad should be ranked 3rd next to Mumbai,Bangalore

  83. Nikhil Yadav says

    Currently I m living in New York although I have visited many wealthy cities of the world (London,Paris,Madrid,Barcelona,Sydney,Los Angeles,Melbourne,Sao Paoulo,Buenos Aires,Vancuover,Johhanesburg,Milan,Las Vegas) & many others but I would like to tell all of u That no other city acceptin India is as developing as KANPUR.It’s developing rate is more than even San Francisco & New York….&it will be the most developed & industrialised & wealthiest city of the world by2035……

      Because, it is full of people like you, with bad grammar and no sense of capitalization while typing.

    2. Nirmal Joseph says

      are you a english teacher from some asshole schools to correct his grammar ???….anyway hyderabad is 100 times better than your cow worshiping asshole cities …..

    3. Mohammed Abdul Kareem says

      Siddharth Seth . . Grammatical mistakes can even cause by american or british though english is their mother tongue. Hyderabad is the Wealthiest city even when your whole india was slaves of British raj. And your ancestors were slaves for 200years ! . Hyderabad was the Biggest Princely state during that slavery times. And it was bigger than present day Ma harashtra !. Its was dirty planning of Sardar patel and nehru that they invaded hyd killing lakhs of innocent people.

  91. Truefact says

    North indians other than bihar have negligibly lower effects. Most of people from bihar migrate to other state or hide their orginity and thus pretend that they belong to other state (like U.P) due to which the particular state(like U.P) loses it name and fame. .

    From Shinkansen,
    2008 when I came in India, all India. I think “Punjab” with it’s fantastic cities like ‘Ludhian’ ‘Amritsar’ Jalandha’ ‘Chandigarh’ ‘Patiala’ are the awesum from other stat cities. Even, there is a Biggest diff. in villages of ‘Punjab’ and any other states. Punjab’s villages are as good as cities, there are all facitilies.
    And Ludhiana have the amazing and world-level “Cars”. It’s amazing to believe that ‘Punjab’ is the part of India.
    Its 100 years ago, not just cities includes villages and rural life.

    1. Mussels says

      Yes, Punjabs rural is equal to the urban. By, other states rural area is too backward. It’s Impossible to live their for a urban person. Bt not in Punjab.

    1. sakshi says

      1)i see many people having tendency of regionalism(neither the country nor the earth & the human race or just the word “life”).this is a symptom of a being very small hearted in which there is a place for only a few certain people.one level 3 they are’nt worthy of being called indian,on level 2 they are’nt worthy of being called human,on level 1 they dont desrve to be refered as “living concious” since they are so much driven by other forces(leaders who are expert in dividing n brain washing u all),,either you change ur ways or you better detach yourself from india,,i gues n hope you ll be better alone

      2)i also see some people who can be said to be very concerned for the upliftment of humans for the greater good,,,my humble sugestions to them,,”you are capable of making difernces,,the god made world needs you,,please go out of this self expresing and sharing on this social networking medium and bring those difernces in the real world,even if u wana share and make people aware through the facility of internet , think some big ways to pursue that

  158. Silan Das says

    Bhubaneswar is most powerful city India in between 2015 because,In the year 2009 Odisha was second top Domestic Investment destination with Gujarat first and Andhra Pradesh in third place according to an analysis of ASSOCHAM Investment Meter (AIM) Study on Corporate Investments. Orissa’s share was 12.6 percent in total investment in the country. It received investment proposal worth Rs. 2, 00,846 crore during the last year. Steel and power were among the sectors which attracted maximum investments in the state. Major players like Arcelor-Mittal($12 billion), Vedanta Resources($2.1 billion), Tata Steel(Rs.15,400crore) , POSCO($12 billion), NTPC($12.65 billion), Mesco Steel($12.8 billion) and Bhushan Steel(Rs.5,828 crore) intend to invest .There are heavy investments coming in Odisha and Bhubaneswar being the capital captures the highest share of these investments. They are then further absorbed in developing real estate of the city.
    The growing population of the city 19, 00,000 making it the 22nd largest urban centre in the country and the rising disposable incomes of its denizens led to high demand of residential property.
    The entry of IT industries in the city is another reason for development of Bhubaneswar property market. The high paying Technology companies like Infosys, TCS, Wipro and IBM have raised the need for residential as well as commercial setups.
    World Bank ranks Bhubaneswar as 3rd best city India to do business – (Doing Business in India 2009 report). Its strategic location on coastline and richness in minerals and natural resources makes it the most preferred investment destination for many.
    Its emerging as the latest knowledge hub in India with several new public and private universities such as NISER, IIT, IIIT, National University, National Law University, AIIMS, Vedanta University, Sri Sri University, NIPER, and several other new institutions .The city aims to export software worth appox. $1billion by 2011-2012.

  159. Ajai Panicker says

    These are ranking based oin consensus in 2001? What utter nonsense is that? Or did you mean Census? Just to point out how misleading such stats can be: Valparai 4th richest city on your list is a small town with less than a lakh population situated on the Tamilnadu Kerala border. I have been there. There are some 10 tea estate companies there abouts including Tata Tea. This is the only thing there. Most of the people there are tes estate workers drawing very low wages. Probably, if you calculate the turnover of the ten tea estate companies and divide by the population, it may make it on this list. But except for the Estate Managers and some traders, who may be middle class, the rest of the entire poulation are poor.

  160. Indian says

    beloved Indians, India’s development is not only in some cities. its real development have to start from every tiny villages. just think about the standard of our villages. illiteracy,poverty,castism,unemployment….also just think about slums and platform people of our great cities. current India’s development is fake. it is imbalanced and it is just an inflammation and not real. as in words of our former pres.abdul kalam we the students and youngsters can only change this rotten situation. not only colourful cinemas and pubs is youngsters spot. we hav to this folks.
    jai hind…..

    1. Chandrahas Shetty says

      Bangalore is number One Citiy in Krnataka and Capital of IT BT. Rest of Bangalore Mangalore is having Rapid Growth in Economic Development…

  169. braveheart says

    It depends what you mean by “richest.”

    If you mean highest spending per head, then it is Maharashtra. It contributes 15% of India’s industrial output and 13.2% of its GDP

    If you mean highest income per head, then it is Uttar Pradesh and the National Capital Territory of Delhi taken together. It contributes 8.17% to India’s total GDP.

    If you mean economic, mineral and natural deposits, then I think it must be either Punjab or Karnataka.

    In terms of average wealth and quality of life across the whole State population, then I’m sure it must be either Kerala or Goa.

  170. pank says

    Goa is such a tiny state and yet…..
    Below figures indicates the “households with monthly income” more than “ten thousand” per month. and here its the GOA with 77% people earning more than “ten thousand” followed by Ludhiana and Delhi..

    Panaji (GOA) 77%
    Ludhiana 63%
    Delhi 62%
    Amritsar 60%
    Jalandhar 60%
    Chandigarh 57%
    Pune 56%
    Greater Mumbai 56%
    Valparai 53%
    Faridabad 51%

    Thats the top ten cities with “highest family income”
    In Goa atleast one of the family member earns more than 1 lakh p.a…its highest compare to rest of indian cities. also each of the goan household atleast have one PC and broadband or internet connection…..and also youngsters going abroad is much more In GOA..

    1. ganesh says

      Mumbai is far ahead of delhi, central govt. takes money from mumbai & provide it to delhi, this is reason for growth of delhi.
      Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment capital of India, it is also one of the world’s top 10 centres of commerce in terms of global financial flow, accounting for 25% of industrial output, 70% of maritime trade in India (Mumbai Port Trust & JNPT),and 70% of capital transactions to India’s economy.The city houses important financial institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India, the SEBI and the corporate headquarters of numerous Indian companies and multinational corporations. It is also home to some of India’s premier scientific and nuclear institutes like BARC, NPCL, IREL, TIFR, AERB, AECI, and the Department of Atomic Energy. The city also houses India’s Hindi (Bollywood) and Marathi film and television industry. Mumbai’s business opportunities, as well as its potential to offer a higher standard of living, attract migrants from all over India and, in turn, make the city a melting pot of many communities and cultures.
      Mumbai is India’s largest city (by population) and is the financial and commercial capital of the country as it generates 6.16% of the total GDP.[15][104][136] It serves as an economic hub of India, contributing 10% of factory employment, 25% of industrial output, 33% of income tax collections, 60% of customs duty collections, 20% of central excise tax collections, 40% of India’s foreign trade and 4000 crore (US$740 million) in corporate taxes.

  176. racktim says

    I think most wealthiest cities in india:

    1. Delhi ( Including noida, gurgaon, greater noida, Gaziabad ,faridabad) / NCR

      Wot a copy paste———no logic

      1. RACKTIM says

        WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW FROM ME , I COPY U :
        NO MAN OR WOMAN
        U WROTE THERE ONLY 20 CITIES . BUT MY THINKING IS NOT TOTALLY DIFFERENT , INNOVATIVE ALSO OVER FIFTY CITIES AMONG VARIOUS STATES.
        IT IS NO MATTER WHERE YOU CAME FROM , YOU MAY BE SOUTH , I MAY BE NORTH . THE ONLY THING THAT WE ARE INDIAN . IS IN IT ?

        AND ON THE HAND THE WHICH I WROTE EARLY COLLECTED FROM INTERNET (WIKIPEDIA ) MAGAZINE AND PAPER. AND IT TOTALLY MY INDIVIDUAL THINKING

      2. josh says

        i think you are from madurai! what is the logic behind choosing madurai as a powerful city in india? even your IT revolution is falling down in madurai! if you want it to be placed in top 20 list , madurai needs industrial revolution apart from tourism. industrialization is mandatory for a city to develop.

    3. SANJEEV KUMAR says

      Dear pl correct your statics ?

    4. Ateeth says

      Gooooooood list.

    5. sowmya reddy says

      I think its right….

    6. josh says

      this seems somewhat genuine …..covering all aspects. you see in tamilnadu will always praise madurai, but you can’t find anything in MADURAI except tourism.Even i am from tamilnadu and i like madurai but ppl are taking madurai as an item of argument. madurai is over-shadowing other industrial cities in tamilnadu like TIRUCHIRAPALLI,SALEM,TIRUPUR and ERODE.

    7. blackcat says

      i think you are right. with small cities coming up rapidly they will probably beat all this great cities very soon in terms of development, wealth and living standards.

    8. baazi says

      wrong info..after independent india…..
      MUMBAI
      KOLKATA
      DELHI
      CHENNAI

  177. Vineeth.P. says

    Hyderabad is the best city of India!!!

    1. karthik says

      what u said is absolutely right

  178. mahesh singh shekhawat says

    jaipur is the richest city in the india , the list which is given is absolutely wrong, jaipur is not only richest but it is clean city. it is the attraction of tourists ,jaipur is the world class city.

  179. Rajan says

    CHANDIGARH IS NOT ONLY RICHEST. It is GREENEST, CLEANEST, HIGHEST PER CAPITA INCOME,FIRST PLANNED CITY, HIGHEST VEHICLE DENSITY, AND IT HAS GIVEN KAPIL DEV WORLD CUP WINER, YUVRAJ SINGH T20 WORLD CUP WINER, ABHINAV BINDRA GOLD MEDAL OLYMPICS, AND MOST HOCKEY PLAYERS WHO WIN GOLD, AND IT IS THE ONLY CITY IN INDIA FULLY PLANNEd SO IT i$ RICHEST

  180. zeeshan says

    Hi friends its all above information about richest cities in india is extremly wrong. I have seen mumbai have 29 rank in the world and 4 rank in asia and 1 rank in india.ie

  181. ashok says

    1. eby says

      Hi Mr Ashok Valparai is Coimbatore not another city thank you

  182. Rajesh kumar says

    Hey u have missed jamshedpur!!

  183. Imms says

    The RockFort city TRICHY(Tiruchirapalli) can be included in the list… It is the Manufacturing hub of energy equipments.

  184. Dinesh Murmu says

    I dont think shimla ludhiana chennai is richest city in india

    1. sri says

      why not…?? ofcourse chennai is one of the most wealthiest city in india..

    2. Gagan Singh says

      hi dinesh,
      off-course Ludhiana is not mentioned in most of the movies in India. But the city generates almost 200 crores per day. And is the first Metro city in Punjab with its own International airport. In 2009 “World Bank” ranked Ludhiana as the city in India with the best business environment.
      Please read the briefing of Ludhiana in wikipedia.org. Ludhiana may not be the best city in India; but is one of the fastest developing cities in North India, and should be listed as one of the richest cities of the country….Thanks

    3. RO hit says

      NO…matter wat u think……shimla & chandigarh r most beautiful nd polution free cities in country…..shimla is richest bcoz of apple & tourism..

  185. vimal says

      2. Ravikant Dube says

        Ha ha ha u Mr. with lesser knowledge, how about this. According to wikipedia UP is the second largest economy in India after maharashtra and Lucknow stands amongst the top 10 fastest developing non metro cities in india

      3. J Ramalingam says

        I am from Tamilnadu.I have visited 24 states and 100th of Cities throughout India.When i was in Maduarai,i was knowing Chennai,Madurai,Coimbtoor,Bangalore and Hyderabad are best cities in India and south India is most developed part of India.But when i started my journey to know India’s Present and future power hub .I found UP is the most powerful state where world’s top class resources are available…which are the evidences of Future’s power hub of India.This state is Religional,Cultural,Commercial,Educational,Historical and so on all kind of opportunities are available.
        Kanpur,Lucknow,Allahabad,Varanasi,Bhadohi,Gorakhpur,Mirzapur,Bareily, Meerut,Ghaziabad,Noida,Aligarh,Jhansi,Mathura,Vrindavan,Agra are the commercially strong cities which are growing very fast and Amethi,Raibareily,Pilbhit,Ayodhya,Faizabad,Baldeo,Barsana,Jarwa,Auraiya,Saharanpur,Dadri,Moradabad,Loni,Barabanki are the fastest emerging cities of UP and India…..UP has 2nd maximum number of towns in India…thats what after 16% population and 5th no in size UP is the 2nd largest economy of India….Kanpur is the 8th metropolitan city of India…According to Government Information up to 2025 UP will have 4 metropolitan cities of India
        UP is lagged behind because of Governance and bad politics…on the name of Religion and Cast…Else UP is top on the Power hub states of India.
        According to my team analysis:
        Top 10 powerful states of India in 2020:
        1-Uttar Pradesh(UP)
        2-Maharashtra(MH)
        3-Tamilnadu(TN)
        4-Rajasthan(RJ)

        9-Karnataka(KA)
        10-Haryana

        Top 20 Powerful Cities of India in 2020:

        18-Guwahati
        19-Ludhiana
        20-Bhubaneshwar

        1. ashis says

          It is a shy matter for me that the state which gives a tremendous contribution in the economical developement in India you are afraiding to say that state name.
          Yes, I am saying about the state odisha which has a high resources of coal,steel,thermal plants and iron.

        2. josh says

          Mr.Ramalingam your assumption of top 20 cities in india is somewhat good, But where comes the MADURAI in this top 20 list? where is COIMBATORE,NAGPUR,BHOPAL? thats really funny to think that ludhiana and bhubaneshwar are ahead of MADURAI. if you like madurai to be in the list , then there should be some industrialization.

        3. vigneash munuswamy says

          you are correct

        4. amit says

      5. samiksha patil says

        its not true every state and city has its own uniqueness.

    2. Ravikant Dube says

      I dunno mr. Vimal if d ? that u asked was sarcastic ? If it was then the answer 4 u is d same as that given to mr. Kapoor but if was genuine then i appreciate it, as i m a proud indian and a proud upite. Just throw mulayam and maya out of the state and d country and UP will scale new hieghts.

  189. mustafa says

    datz great chandigarh is also well planned city

  190. sakthi says

    Even Tamilnadu gets limited resources or opportunities unlike other north Indian states but it doesn’t failed to create its impression. yes its nice to hear Tamilnadu got two places in this list Valparai and chennai. Looking more in future

  191. CAT Study material says

    I think hyderabad is also very big city as hyderabad and secunderabad are joined together…

    1. raju says

      Yes, Hyderabad is very big city in india. Well developed city in india.In, future it might be becomes capital of india

      1. Chandrahas Shetty says

        I am from Karnataka but Hyderbad is Smaller than Bangalore Hyderbad is 6th Bigest city in India..
        But Mumbai is always Bigger than any other cities…….

        1. tabassum says

          chandrahas shetty once u come hyderabad i came bangalore..u have commuter rail system in bangalore hyderabad has..any railway head quarter.. u have nsg hub u have..

        2. Hemant says

          haha…Bangalore stretches just 22km from any end-end but Hyderabad stretches 45km, so four times in terms of area, its a megacity and being the first city in india to implement Intelligent Transport System(ITS) nd many more…

  192. Squamble says

    Even maximum Mercedes are sold out in Chandigarh and Punjab. !

  193. Mumbaikar says

    My views are only comparing two cities listed bellow

    Population in Mumbai (2009 estimate): 13,922,125
    Population in Chandigarh (2009 estimate): 1,033,671

    Mumbai is the most populous city and financial capital in India. This article is based on total weath devided by total number of people. With such stats, Mumbai made it to 5th. I think that is great.

    1. Majid Akhtar says

      Jamshedpur is the 6th wealthiest city of india and 1st in terms of highest per capita income

      1. Faraz says
