Hyderabad, the city of pearls, the IT hub and pharma hub of India, is indeed a pearl of a city to live in for most people who come to work here. Many of them prefer settling down here, and during the pandemic, Hyderabad showed robust growth in the realty segment. And why not? Ask analysts. After all, it was named the most dynamic city in the JLL City Momentum Index 2020. It was ranked the best city to live in in India for the 5th consecutive year in Mercer’s Quality of Living (India) Ranking, 2019.
The city was also ranked as the best city to live and work in India in a survey conducted by the destination discovery website Holidify.com. The city secured a scoring of 4 out of 5, leaving behind cities like Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Chennai.
Even if one peeps into the past, the city has warmly received people from various parts of the world like Turks, Iranians, Arabs, Africans, British, and others. In fact, today, 20-25% of investments in Hyderabad are from non-Hyderabadis, be it people from Andhra or north India.
The Ganga-Jamuna Tehzeeb of Hyderabad is another draw for people, and there have been no incidents of violence or resistance against people from states such as Bihar, UP, or the northeast like in Bengaluru. People from outside, by and large, feel safe, and the work conditions are suitable as Hyderabad is home to the biggest IT companies after the US. It is also an established pharma hub that makes it lucrative for job-seekers.In all, the policies of the government, the extensive growth of industries in various sectors, the warmth, and love that the Hyderabadis shower on people – have all made it one of the most wanted cities to live in India.
