Recent industrial development in Bangalore is leaded by automobile and software industries. Their development depends on the industrial agglomeration and human resource development. Rapid development of Bangalore brings about a number of urban questions, especially in the the water resources, housing supply and transport.
3) Urban and industrial development and their regional effects in Delhi metropolitan regions
We focus on Gurgaon district locating in the suburb of Delhi. Recent industrial development here is leaded by automobile industries and call centers, providing the increase of labor demands. However increasing casual workers is observed in manufacturing sectors. In Gurgaon, housing and commercial development is now appearing and playing as a center for suburban development.
