Gurgaon ( ) is the second largest city in the Indian state of Haryana. Gurgaon is the industrial and financial center of Haryana. It is located 30 km south of national capital New Delhi, about 10 kilometers from Dwarka Sub City and 268 km south of Chandigarh, the state capital. An important town in ancient Hindu mythology , Gurgaon is one of Delhi's four major satellite cities and is part of the National Capital Region. It was identified as a satellite city in 1962. Gurgaon is within commuting distance of Delhi via an expressway and Delhi MRTS.

According to a survey by Business Today magazine, Gurgaon is considered the best city in India to work and live in. American president Jimmy Carter visited Carterpuri village in Gurgaon.

Gurgaon is also the only Indian city to have successfully distributed electricity connections to all its households. However, because of its heavy vehicular traffic and inefficient public transportation apart from the Delhi Metro, Gurgaon ranks 11 amongst Indian cities on the "Life after Work" index of Business Today. Gurgaon has the 3rd highest per capita income in India after Chandigarh and Mumbai.

Over the past 25 years the city has undergone rapid development and construction. A wave of multinational companies choose to locate their operations in Gurgaon after GE did so in 1997. Big companies like Airtel, American Express, EXL, IBM, Microsoft, Sapient, DLF, Maruti Suzuki, Hero Honda, TCS, ThoughtWorks, Ericsson, Oracle, Bank of America, American Airlines, The Coca-Cola Company, Nokia, Motorola,ZS Associates etc. have made Gurgaon an important financial center of India, as well as one of India's major outsourcing and call centers
