The majority of industries came along the transport nodes of waterways and railways. Presently, the city is spread over a area of 260 sq. km. towards North, West and South directions.

Nestled on the banks of the eternal Ganga, Kanpur stands as one of North India’s major industrial centers with its own historical, religious and commercial importance.
