Thumbs up Gujarat Shines - Surat 4th fastest, 3 other gujarati cities in top 100 growing cities

3 Gujarati Cities in the top fastest growing cities in the world

The fastest growing City in the world is in China, but India comes in close behind. Ghaziabad is number 2 and surat at number 3. Other 3 gujju cities figure in the list of fastest growing cities in a global study of fastest developing cities conducted by The City Mayors Foundation, an international think tank on urban affairs.

SURAT: The diamond city's glitter has been noticed by the world. Surat ranks fourth in a global study of fastest developing cities conducted by The City Mayors Foundation, an international think tank on urban affairs.

Ghaziabad stands at number two after Beihai in Southern China, which has the stupendous average annual growth rate of 10.58 per cent for 2006 to 2020. Ghaziabad's growth rate is given as 5.20 per cent. The City Mayors Foundation went by assumed annual growth rates for cities and urban areas between 2006 and 2020 based on past growth/decline and forecasts by international and national statistics organizations.

Three other Gujarat cities also figure in the top 100; Rajkot placed at 22 , Ahmedabad at 73 and Vadodara at 86. While the average annual growth rate for Surat is 4.99 per cent, that for Rajkot is 3.63 per cent, Ahmedabad (2.73 per cent) and Vadodara (2.55 per cent).

The third fastest developing city in the list is Sana'a in Yemen (5.00 per cent) while the fifth spot went to Kabul (4.47 per cent). New Delhi figures at spot no 22 (3.48), Faridabad at no 8 (4.44 per cent) and Agra at 53 (2.93 per cent). Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai do not figure in the top 100. However, smaller cities around Mumbai have made the grade; Nashik is no 16 (3.90 per cent) and Pune is no 29 (3.46 per cent). In its analysis, The City Mayors Foundation has said, "Many of the world's fastest growing cities are among the best managed.

They have created opportunities for improving quality of life without increasing resource use and environmental problems. How they are governed and planned further will become increasingly important in coming years." Only cities with more than a million or 10 lakh population were taken in to account. Surat's population, according to the 2011 census, stands at 44.82 lakh. All the other top five cities have much smaller populations. In fact, smaller cities have made it to the list of top 100 because their growth rates are higher.

Mayor Raju Desai attributes it to upgradation in the main sectors of textile, diamond and embroidery. "This has resulted in these industries becoming more attractive to many and rapid development is taking place," he said.

Dr Kiran Pandya of the human resource development department of Veer Narmad South Gujarat University attributes this success mainly to forward and backward effects of investments worth crores in the city. "This type of investment in sectors like diamonds, textiles and others leads to development. Other factors like very little law and order problems and minimum labour troubles help the rate of growth. Easy accessibility of raw material from nearby clusters and best civic governance in the country has also helped Surat achieve these world standards."


Shivanand Swami of the Centre for Environment Planning and Technology (CEPT) in Ahmedabad who worked on many development projects in Surat, said, "I will attribute this to people, local governance and than state government. Utilization of available resources properly is very important and that has worked in Surat's case."

Re: Gujarat Shines - Surat 4th fastest, 3 other gujarati cities in top 100 growing cities

Feel happy that the people of Gujarat have taken upon themselves to change Gujarat for the better. Some years ago., I remember the time when Surat was suffering from plague and there were rats and garbage all over. The Surat folks decided to stop the nonsense and take charge. They took it upon themselves to clean up their own mess. I think the Municipal commissioner there was also very good who helped. From a plague ridden city to a sparkling clean city was like a miracle.

Congratulations to Narendra Modi for single handed putting Gujarat on the world map!

Re: Gujarat Shines - Surat 4th fastest, 3 other gujarati cities in top 100 growing cities

I could not find any mention of the fastest growing thing when i visited the source - City mayors

And the largest city mentioned there itself is questionable. (it takes the municipal limits probably and not the urban agglomeration) and i find Surat bigger than Kolkatta.

And in that site, i find that Karachi is the biggest city in the world. Surat is slightly more populous than Kolkatta and much larger than Hyderabad.

I too appreciate Gujarat's progress which was always high earlier and has further increased under Modi but jumping on a TOIlet paper report with some dubious source is premature.

That plague thing was more of a scare than actual happenstance. Yes, there were some isolated cases of dengue, but far lesser than happen in Delhi every year. Surat has a recent history of recovering from disasters with greater force than before.

About the public and administration, Surat Municipal Corporation has one of the highest tax recovery rates (86% last year) in India. E-governance is being implemented with full vigor. You can file complaints of various sorts on their website (regarding drainage, road repair, street lights, any sort of nuisance etc..) and get timebound action. Similarly, police complaints can be filed online. Most of the licenses and renewals can be primarily be carried out online.

The downside is that even in the last 2-3 years of recession, property rates have gone up like crazy
