Whether it’s late night group study or an after party craving, there is something about the smell of coffee that jolts you up no matter what time it is.

The Square – Novotel
The Square

When it comes to midnight cravings, the easiest place to go, in any city, is the airport. The distance of the Hyderabad airport from the city seems to bother many people. But if you are like me and enjoy late night drives, The Square by Novotel is an excellent option. The last fine dining restaurant on this list, the place will provide you an entire meal, if you are in the mood for it; but stop by for a cup of coffee and you will feel invigorated enough to stay up the entire night.

The emergence of Hyderabad as an IT and Software hub has also begged the question Bangalore vs Hyderabad a large number of times. From Microsoft ,Google, Facebook and Amazon we see many global software giants setting up huge campuses in the city of pearls. What started out as a single multi storied building named cyber towers in 1998 has now grown to a sprawling 250 acre division named HITEC city.

In this post, we talk about the rivalry between the two cities along with where each of them has an edge. So…Can Hyderabad beat Bangalore in the IT race? Let’s find out!

The Present

As of now, Bangalore remains the undisputed leader in the software exports sector with close to 31  percent of the total exports in 2016. Hyderabad’s share is a modest 13 percent. Although, in the same year hyderabad’s IT sector added 15,000 employees to it’s workforce, which according to the IT minister KTR was the highest in the country. But with the sheer size of it’s output alone it can be admitted that Bangalore is much ahead of Hyderabad.

Bangalore’s Early Start

bangalore vs hyderabad

This is a very important factor to consider before analyzing the question Bangalore vs Hyderabad. While most of the structured IT economy in Hyderabad came up around the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Bangalore entered the game of electronics and software much early in the late 70’s with the creation of Electronics city. A few years later in 1985 Texas Instruments became the first company to set it’s headquarters in Bangalore and many other big names followed.

MNC Hub Vs Startup Magnet

start up hub

Hyderabad has attracted big names like Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Uber and many others to set up huge offices in the city. In fact, Microsoft’s biggest office outside USA is located in Hyderabad. When google decided to open an office in India, Hyderabad was their first choice (read more about it here). Bangalore on the other hand has a repute for housing corporate giants as well as the startups.

Flipkart, Snapdeal and Practo are examples of startups who chose to headquarter in Bangalore. Even RedBus, a company founded by BITS-Pilani Hyderabad campus alumni has its headquarters in Bangalore. In short, while Hyderabad has been successful I attracting the big whales Bangalore has become a healthy hub for successful Indian startups.

Bangalore vs Hyderabad ? Bangalore wins.

Work Force Pool

work force in hyderabad

Since relocating employees can be a costly affair, having a strong local talent pool offers immense help. This is where Hyderabad has an edge. With premier technology institutes like IIT, IIIT, BITS, NIT Warangal, Osmania University, JNTU Kukatpally, Vasavi and CBIT located in and close to the city, there is never a dearth of quality employees. Bangalore vs Hyderabad ? Hyderabad wins.

Outsource vs Insource

outsourcing

Traditionally, Bangalore has been the outsourcing capital of India. In fact it has also been referred to as the outsourcing capital of the world!. Hyderabad on the other hand has a mixture of both outsourced and insourced projects. But then again, the insourcing industry in Hyderabad is too small with the outsourcing behemoth that Bangalore is.

Infrastructure and Ease of Business

infrastructure of hyderabad

This is where Hyderabad has taken a lead over Bangalore. In 2016, Bangalore came 13th in terms of doing business where as Hyderabad occupied the first place. Bangalore is also famous for it’s traffic jams and costly real estate. Hyderabad’s relatively young IT sector has better planned roads and offers a lower cost of living. A recent low was hit when people in Bangalore were seen fishing on inundated roads during the 2016 monsoon. In contrast, Hyderabad has been successful in implementing a number of policies that have made it easier for business to operate and setup new offices. Tremendous tax sops and incentives too have boosted recent growth. Bangalore vs Hyderabad ? Hyderabad wins.

Climate

weather of hyderabad

It is difficult to take sides on this front as both cities are famous for their friendly climate devoid of extreme  temperature shifts. However, summers in Hyderabad can be hotter than Bangalore…so that might tip the scales in Bangalore’s favor. Again, this depends heavily on personal preference and choice so it’s difficult to comment. Bangalore vs Hyderabad ? Undecided

Food

Biriyani, qubani aur Sherwani! Very few people can argue against the fact that Hyderabad offers some of the tastiest food in the country. Lead by biriyani on the front, hyderabadi cuisine offers a lot of diversity from khichdi/dosa/paratha in breakfast to rice/thali/mandi in dinner. From pani-puri to shawarma and Jalebi the snacks range too has a lot to offer. And compared to most other metros Hyderabad offers highly affordable food. On the other hand, Bangalore’s food is predominantly south Indian and according to many quorans it is difficult to find non-kannada food that is both tasty and affordable. Bangalore vs Hyderabad ? Hyderabad wins.

Culture

Getting along in Hyderabad is easier as urdu/hindi is widely understood. Although when English is considered both cities have equal advantages, the fact that hindi is more common in Hyderabad makes it easier for north Indians and other people to gel easily. Coupled with a lower crime rate, the city is also seen as a safer place for women. After all, we are talking about the land of tehzeeb!

Verdict for Bangalore Vs Hyderabad

Although Bangalore remains the leader as of now, Hyderabad comes only second. However, with the recent strides the city of Nizams has made in areas of infrastructure, ease of business and economic policy, Hyderabad’s position seems promising. If we can avoid communal clashes, make the city safer for women and improve road safety while reducing commuting costs. We will have left our competitors far behind. Magar Hyderabadiyaan kisku bole? Sabku pinde mein miladete! All in all, the day doesn’t seem far when Hyderabad will be crowned the tech capital of the country.
