Infrastructure of Amritsar

Amritsar is one of the most important cities of Northern India and therefore much care is taken to develop and maintain its infrastructure.

Separate budgets have been made to accelerate the growth, development and maintenance of sewage management, roads, water, and a mass system of rapid transport transit. Modern Amritsar is witnessing a paramount growth in the number of high rises, malls, and parks. In order to increase the tourism value of the city special care is being taken of the religious shrines and historical places in the region.

A major project of Amritsar infrastructure is its superb transit system which connects Amritsar with Delhi via the city of Chandigarh.
