By Shreya → Saturday, 4 March 2017
It is the largest city of the union territory.it is a town tuckedaway on the eastern seaboard of India.Among its diverse coastlines of 32 kms,palm-fringed beaches,backwaters,fishing villages,beach resorts etc.The total area of the union territory is 479 square km and it comprises of 4 small connected districts.This place lies very close to sea so the climate here is very hot and humid.During winter it is very pleasant.It also has a high literacy rate which stands at 86.55 %.It is a typical Dravidian place where you will find a majority of people to be Dravidian.Since Pondicherry comprises of diverse culture there are varieties of language spoken.
 It was under the French government till 1954, after which the city joined the union of India, along with rest of French controlled states.


The city was made union territory, which made it an easy target for doing business, as the taxes were directly controlled by the Central government, and is considerably lower that rest of the states in India. 
The investors took the opportunity and set up different factories across the city.
In agriculture, major cultivation around the city and its remote locations consists of rice, pulses, sugarcane, cotton, bananas, and coconuts. The topography of the region also suits the cultivations and the farms are seldom declared as drought hit.


There are also many small,large scale industries.About a major portion of the population is involved in the industrial sector.Various crops grown over here includes rice,ragi,cotton etc.
There are various industries like manufacture computers,electronic products,auto parts etc.The government of Pondicherry has a Legislative Assembly which has in account 30 members.Fishing can also be said as an important occupation  as there are many fishing villages.While pondicherry union territory has been defined as an administrative unit ,it is very difficult to delineate the economy as an autonomous entity.The openness of economy is also reflected in the movement of good and services in and out of Pondicherry.
By the increase of production of processed materials, the need of transporting it to different places also grew with time. The investors realized the need of reformation in the transporting sector and started investing into the transporting sector.
Trucks, Lorries, ferries etc. are used to transport the goods to and fro the city. Now a days, online booking of the trucking services are also done directly by the consumer and the owners of the small scale industries. This helps cut the commission for the middle man as well as they can keep track of the transporting status in real time.
Post-Independence, the preexisting industries were remodeled for better working, and new industries, specially the small-scale industries were encouraged by the government.
Many schemes to enable the people to set up their own small industries by providing them some financial support is introduced by the government. The schemes were utilized well by the people and self-help groups and are a huge success.
There are many upcoming projects proposed by the government:
1)Chunnambar Water Front
2)Handicraft Bazaar
3)Lagoons and Oceanarium etc. 
The selection of it, being a smart city and the work done by the government in this direction to achieve this is exemplary and will directly benefit the citizen and their business soon.
The road connectivity also plays a vital role in the transportation of the products to the remote locations. The ECR or the East Coast Road is the major route of the roadways transportation and connects the south to the eastern parts like Bhubaneshwar and Kolkata, via the Eastern Ghats.
The transport sector is also growing and is still taking pace. Investors are coming and the sector is blooming in its initial phase.
Pondicherry has always seen up rise in the industries since its independence, and will grow further by the help of government and its people.
