Manju Yagnik, vice-chairperson of the Nahar Group, feels that the growth in tier-2 cities like Nashik, can be attributed to the increasing disposable incomes of the people and companies looking for new markets for growth. This growth has also been helped by reasonable real estate prices and a conducive business environment created by the state and local governments. “The credit for rapid urbanisation in Nashik goes to skill-based manufacturing industries, like automotive, consumer and capital goods, engineering, textiles, pharmaceutical sectors like bio-technology and IT/ITeS,” says Yagnik.
