Business in Chandigarh

Capitol Complex ChandigarhBusiness in Chandigarh - In a way Chandigarh is a very convenient city - very well organised with things placed neatly at their places.

It still does Both the state governments, the Punjab and Haryana, are placed there. So, this is where you need to go for any kind of interaction with the government departments. However, with the expansion of the bureaucracy, many of the departments have been spread around the city, mostly along the main avenues.

The other administrative centre is Sector 17, the most central place of the city. Here are placed all the offices of the city administration - district courts, head post and telegraph offices, banks, etc. Most of the support services, therefore, also set up sop in the vicinity.

The hospital and university are placed at the north-western edge of the city, Sector # 2 (Post Graduate Institute of Medical Science) and Sector # 14 (University). The Chandigarh medical college and hospital is placed in Sector # 33 along the road to Ambala and Delhi. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), northern regional office, is also along the same road but in Sector # 32.
