"A developing city"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Jul 19, 2014
It's a fairly small city in Haryana, situated very near to Bank of River Yamuna. The city has seen rapid development in just few years. The cleanliness is not satisfactory and roads are under construction. The rapid development is in terms of educational services and industries. A few classic hotels and malls are also opened. It's an industrial city. River Yamuna can be seen flowing through the city. The papers and allied products are very low-priced due to big paper mills here. The environment is polluted due to it. A place to visit during winter.
