Ghaziabad (Hindustani pronunciation: is a city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It is sometimes referred to as the “Gateway of UP” because it is close to New Delhi, on the main route into Uttar Pradesh. It is a part of the National Capital Region of Delhi. It is a large and planned industrial city, well connected by roads and railways, and is the administrative headquarters of Ghaziabad District as well as being the primary commercial, industrial and educational centre of western Uttar Pradesh and a major rail junction for North India. Recent construction works have led to the city being described by a City Mayors Foundation survey as the second fastest- growing in the world.Situated in the Upper Gangetic Plains, the city has two major divisions separated by the Hindon River, namely: Trans-Hindon on the west and Cis-Hindon on the east side.
Although connected by railway since 1865, it was not until 1940 that the first modern industry appeared in Ghaziabad. However, it was in the post-independence period that industry really expanded, with a further 22 factories opening in the four years after 1947. This development can be attributed to the influx of people from the newly formed Pakistan and the relocation of businesses from what was now the Pakistani province of Punjab. John Oakey and Mohan Ltd., one of India’s largest concerns manufacturing coated and bonded abrasives, and originally functioning under the name of ‘National Abrasives’ at Rawalpindi was shifted here under the proprietorship of ‘Dyer Meakins’ in 1947.Subsequently, the Mohan Meakin breweries were also set up in the year 1949.This period also saw the development of Ghaziabad as one of India’s most famous centres of the Oil Engines industry.
