Hinjawadi (Marathi: हिंजवडी) is a village located off the NH 4 bypass to the west of Pune in India. It is the location of Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park, housing many software companies.


Hinjawadi was a completely rural locale until the construction of the Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park. The park comprises three phases with further phases planned. Hinjawadi Industries Association(HIA) was laid out to provide a joint forum to all stakeholders based out of Hinjawadi and nearby places.

Hinjawadi is a proposed hub for integrated townships in Pune.[1] The new Special Township Policy Act of the Maharashtra government has laid down an integrated approach to development of townships to de-congest Pune Municipal Corporation areas and encourage new settlements in its periphery though higher FSI (floor space index) than what is normally allowed in the municipal limits.


Due to rapid development, Hinjewadi is facing serious traffic problems during peak hours. From 8.30 AM to 11:30 AM, HMVs (Heavy Motor Vehicles) are not allowed to enter the area due to congestion on the roads. About 3–5 Lac employees travel daily to and from the IT park.[2]


MIDC (Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation) took special initiative to install closed circuit television camera project. The project, co-sponsored by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) and the Hinjewadi Industries Association, will have 22 surveillance cameras monitoring the activity at six junctions in the IT Park. It will be integrated with the Rs 225-crore CCTV camera project (1,285 cameras at 441 junctions) coming up in the city. The output will be monitored and recorded by the centralized unit at the Pune Police commissionerate.
