Jaipur is a major hub for arts and crafts. It has many traditional shops selling antiques, jewellery, handicrafts, gems, bangles, textiles, leather and metal products.
With all its royalty and riches, Jaipur has plenty to offer. Magnificent forts, rich heritage, resonant culture, warm hospitality, mouth-watering cuisine and ample shopping options. From clothes to jewellery, handicrafts to artefacts- Jaipur bazaars have it all. A shopper’s paradise, Jaipur is a place where it’s hard to resist the temptation to buy all that you see!

Kolkata is India’s second largest city and the capital of West Bengal. Fondly known as the City of Joy and Love, Grandeur and Glory. It is a city with a great deal of charm – its imperial monuments, strong cultural and religious flavour rub shoulders with ultra-modern industries making it as the principal commercial, cultural and educational centre of East India.
Dhruv Khaitan – Chairman of NeoGrowth Kolkata is one of the cheapest cities in India to live in, and hence shopping in Kolkata is most appropriate thing to do. Its strategic location as a significant trade corridor and metro in the east, coupled with its cosmopolitan status, has made it a lucrative haven for traders, shop owners and international retail brands to ply their trade here.
Chandigarh occasionally called “The City Beautiful” is a Union Territory in the northern part of India that serves as the capital of the state of Punjab and Haryana. The city of Chandigarh was the first planned city in India postindependence in 1947 and is known internationally for its architecture and urban design.

The RBI ranked Chandigarh as the third largest deposit centre and seventh largest credit centre nationwide as of June 2012. Dhruv Khaitan – Chairman of NeoGrowth
Chandigarh’s economy is largely based on this strong market base and apart from the traditional peddlers; Shopping in Chandigarh is a style statement. You will not like to drive out of the posh markets of sector 17 and sector 22 without indulging in a shopping spree.
NeoGrowth has created a niche in the small business lending space targeting small and medium sized retailers, restaurants, beauty salons and also e-commerce sellers. The loan product is very different from a typical bank loan. We have done away with the burden of a fixed EMI, and more importantly done away the necessity of the merchant to visit the lender’s location at any stage. Time is money for today’s business and therein lies our unique value that makes great sense in today’s environment.
