amount to the state's GDP, tax and excise revenues. The service
industry is the major industry in the city, employing 90%
of the work force.
Hyderabad is today a major hub pertaining to software upload,
hardware manufacturing and biotechnology. This has led the

specialized and exploration institutes. The beginning of new
international airport at Shamshabad provides strengthened
the particular strategic position of the city.
