Hisar : The ‘P’ Factor: Possession of peace, prosperity and potentiality.
Modern technology and science in today’s scenario are the most essential part of development. It takes a lot of effort, planning and intelligence to create a right mix of growth opportunities and prosperity for both the people and the place they are residing in. In modern days urbanization is considered as an opportunity for its people but the infrastructure has to be planned as there is a saying ‘A planned success needs a planned infrastructure’.
Hisar, the city that happens to be world’s second largest Harappan site after Mohenjo- Daru is all set to be in the list of the best cities in terms of potentiality of right mix that will ensure growth and prosperity not only to the people residing there but also for those who are looking for investment opportunities in the property sector. Firoz Shah Tuglaq during his rule named the city as Hisar-e-Firoza in 1354 A.D from that name the place derives its current name. Hisar is an Arabic word which means fort. The presence of the pillar in the Hisar fort belonging to the time of emperor Ashoka (234 A.D) and the discovery of coins of the Kushan kings show us the important facets of Ancient India. Hisar is a blend of historic India with modern urban developing India.
Coming to the modern times the present city of Hisar is indeed one of the most important city of northern India, located in north-west Haryana, it is approximately three hours drive away from the capital of Haryana/ Punjab and Rajasthan and two hours drive away from the capital of India. Due to its close proximity from the capital of all the neighbouring states, the city has also been identified as a counter-magnet city for the National Capital Region to develop as an alternative centre of growth to Delhi.
Besides the strategic location one more feather in the cap that will definitely ensure the prosperity of Hisar city is the proposed international aviation hub, that is to be developed around existing civil airstrip. The action plan has been finalized for the development of international aviation hub, that includes the international airport. The state has already reserved around 4200 acres of land adjoining the pre-existing airstrip. The proposed aviation hub envisages a 9000 feet runway with international standards airport, ample parking for airlines, Aerospace university, global training centre for pilots and ground handling staff along with residential and commercial development.
Life in Hisar is very peaceful as compared to the hustle and bustle of metropolitan cities. Another important factor that is worth mentioning is the cleanliness along with wide roads and greenery that the city offers, ensuring a healthy environment for its people. The city has a large steel industry and it is also known as ‘The City of Steel’. In addition to this automobile industry is also a major contributor to the economy of the city. As the land is very fertile, agriculture happens to be the main occupation for the people residing in surrounding areas of Hisar contributing to the prosperity of the region. Educational and medical facilities are also sufficient as Hisar happens to be the hub of three major universities and several hospitals mushroomed in the city providing modern medical facilities.
What makes a great City? It is a pressing question because by next decade almost sixty percent of the world’s population will live in cities. It is the smart growth that nurtures the best potentiality and ensures that all citizens enjoy a city’s prosperity. Hisar happens to be the right mix of growth opportunities and prosperity as the location, infrastructure, government policies, public-private investments are the elements that will make Hisar one of the most prosperous city of India henceforth giving its investors a reason to smile.
