Dharuhera is the new growth corridor of Gurgaon and New Delhi.[2] It is only an hour drive from the Indira Gandhi International Airport and 27 km from Gurgaon. It connects Rajasthan to the capital, New Delhi, through the National Highway 8. It is a prime choice for industrialists, investors, and real estate developers due to its location. Dharuhera is located in what's colloquially referred as Ahirwal region of Haryana.

Economy[edit]

The economy of Dharuhera was mainly agrarian dominated until recently. Dharuhera industrial estate has provided some employment to the local people. Of late, initiated by an industrial estate developed by the state of Haryana,[1] much of the agricultural land has been developed by real estate developers. As the urbanisation and construction activity extends from Delhi, Dharuhera is now a preferred location for investors in real estate and built properties.

Industries[edit]

Dharuhera industrial estate is located on both sides of NH8 and has many large manufacturing plants such as Hero MotoCorp Ltd. (formerly Hero Honda Motors Ltd.), Venus Engineers (Opp. Power House) and DELPHI Automotive Systems Pvt. Ltd (a global MNC). Dharuhera also has India’s biggest dairy plant Amul,[5] Carlsberg beer factory,[6] Lumax Industries Ltd., Dharuhera Pharmaceutical Pvt. Ltd.,[7] Rico Auto Industries, Sehgal Paper Mills, East India Synthetics, and Indian Oil Corporation.[1]

Urban development[edit]

Dharuhera is about a 40-minute drive from Gurgaon and 60 minutes from Indira Gandhi International Airport. Due to its proximity to Gurgaon and New Delhi, Dharuhera had all the makings of the next big satellite city in the region, with a number of developers running projects here, but it has been deprived by the short sightedness of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA). The town lacks good public sector healthcare, educational institutes, recreational centres, public spaces, leisure parks, libraries, art galleries, places for performing arts, stadiums, swimming pools, theatres, multiplex (one is coming up at Bestech city), and parking spaces in markets. It even lacks a proper crematorium or burial ground. To be fair to Dharuhera, the town planners in Haryana are generally regarded as incompetent and have done no damage to their reputation as probably the worst town planners in the country. The town lacks adequate drainage facilities and usually the parts near the NH-8 and Bhiwadi are submerged even after the slightest rain, due to planning mistakes. But lack of affordable real estate in National Capital Region has made people overlook these problems and it remains one of the most promising real estates in not only NCR but the whole of India.
