Next best to Bangalore =Kovai.

Bangalore is a great city but Bangalore has reached it's full capacity and companies are exploring other cities to setup R&D centers...One city that comes nearly close to Bangalore is Kovai.(full name Coimbatore)

Why Coimbatore for Software R&D ?
[1] Good weather & water.
It is surrounded by mountains and sweet Siruvani water is something that Kovai people are proud of -

So,why wait ?
Did I say the cost of living is "much" lower compared to Bangalore ?

Did I say the salary is also "much" lower compared to Bangalore ?

Did I say that "attrition rate" is much lower compared to Bangalore ?

There is even an incubation facility inside PSG College of Technology to get bootstrap your business,it's called PSG STEP(Science and Technology Entrepreneurial Park).

Coimbatore ALSO a wonderful place for Software R&D

-Uday.
