Shivalik Nagar is a city in the Haridwar district of Uttarakhand, India, at the edge of Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited, Ranipur township and the SIDCUL industrial estate of state government, and 10 km away from the Hindu pilgrimage city of Haridwar.

History[edit]

Shivalik Nagar was developed in the 1980s by Awas Vikas or State Housing Development Board, as a private residential colony for BHEL employees. Gradually it developed into a large colony in three phases, Phase I and Phase II and Phase III even included an industrial estate at its west end. It grew steadily over the next decade, with growing religious tourism in the Haridwar city, and experienced a major spurt in growth, when District Administrative buildings came up near by, after of Haridwar district was constituted in 1998. Thereafter, with the establishment SIDCUL Integrated Industrial Estate in 2002, Shivalik Nagar experienced a realty boom.[1][2]
