9 Reasons why Ajmer Road is the Hottest Growing Residential Locality in Jaipur
Jaipur is one of the fastest growing Tier-II cities in India. A few decades ago, much of the city’s economy depended on the precious stones and gems businesses and tourism. But, now the city has shed its image as a tourism-based centre, as more and more industries and IT/ITES companies have started establishing a base in the city.
With the city’s population growing rapidly, there’s a huge demand for residential properties in and around the city. With many MNCs setting up their operations in Rajasthan's capital city, large numbers of families are relocating to Jaipur. Large open spaces, comparatively lower prices, a thriving lifestyle, lower pollution, and less chaos – it’s no wonder Jaipur is one of the most sought-after tier-II cities in the country.
When it comes to Jaipur, few select residential localities are a preferred choice for both locals and recent immigrants. And, one such destination is the upcoming posh residential area of Ajmer Road.
Here in this post, we highlight the reasons why Ajmer Road is a prime investment destination in the city.
1. Close Proximity to Mahindra World City, SEZ
Mahindra World City, located off the NH8 that runs between Jaipur and Ajmer is one of the major economic nerve centres of Jaipur. It’s an integrated business city, developed as a public-private partnership between RIICO and the Mahindra Group.
As a Special Economic Zone, Mahindra World City is home to several international and national companies offering employment opportunities to thousands of people. If you are employed or seeking employment in any one of the companies located in Mahindra World City, then Ajmer Road is a great home base.
Located at a distance of just 20 mins away from Mahindra World City, you can avoid lengthy congested commutes with a home at Ajmer Road.
2. Just within 30 minutes drive away from Jaipur International Airport
The distance between Ajmer Road and Jaipur International Airport is around 25 – 30 minutes depending on traffic conditions. Jaipur is one of the rare Tier-II cities in India that has an airport that meets international standards.
As tourism is one of the major contributors to the economy of the city and the state of Rajasthan, Jaipur airport enjoys plenty of flights, both domestically and internationally. Compared to other city centres, it’s easier to travel to and from the airport from your home base in Ajmer Road.
3. Well connected by roads and public transportation to the rest of the city
A recent report by the Jaipur Development Authority published in the Hindustan Times revealed that nearly 60% of Jaipur’s population would have a public transport facility within walkable distance (500m) in the next five years.

This is a huge relief for people travelling from Ajmer Road to Tonk Road, thereby reducing peak hour congestion significantly.
The JDA (Jaipur Development Authority) has decided to start the construction of the state’s first Greenfield ultra-modern bus depot at Ajmer Road.
