Pune has emerged as one of the most cosmopolitan cities in India. Located at a distance of approximately 120 km from Mumbai, Pune is the eighth-largest city in India and the second-largest in the state of Maharashtra..
Pune – the cultural capital of Maharashtra – is often referred to as the ‘Oxford of the East’ given its prolific output of qualified graduates and large-scale innovation.
The booming local economy and consequent job opportunities attract talented professionals from across India, the Middle-East, Europe and South-East Asia.
Pune is dotted with historical monuments, museums and hill stations. The famous Shaniwar Wada Palace – a real specimen of Maratha culture and architectural design – is one of the prime attractions of Pune. The city is home to the historical Aga Khan Palace, where Mahatma Gandhi and his wife were imprisoned during the Indian Independence movement.
The city has emerged as a global automobile hub and has rightly earned the sobriquet ‘Detroit of India’. Pune is home to manufacturing units of some of the global heavyweights like Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, General Motors and Fiat, besides the Indian automobile giants – Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto and Mahindra & Mahindra.
Pune also boasts of the renowned Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) and the National Defense Academy situated at Khadakwasla, located at a distance of 17 km from Pune.
The salubrious climate throughout the year and greenery all around attract professionals to make Pune their permanent home.
