Gujarat International Finance Tec-City or GIFT is an under-construction central business district in the Indian state of Gujarat. It will be built on 986 acres of land. Its main purpose is to provide high quality physical infrastructure so that finance and tech firms can relocate their operations there from Mumbai, Bangalore, Gurgaon, and anywhere infrastructure is either inadequate or very expensive. It will have a special economic zone, international education zone, integrated townships, an entertainment zone, hotels, a convention center, Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) units, stock exchanges and service units.
GIFT City, in all likelihood, will be India’s first ‘smart city’ to be built from scratch. The project is located on the bank of the Sabarmati River and is 11 kilometers from the capital city of Gujarat state, Gandhinagar. It is easily accessible from all direction through 4-6 lane, state and national highway.
