The Hyderabad US consulate is being set up in Hyderabad and will start operations from December 2008.
This temporary consulate office will be located at the Paigah Palace, Begumpet, a heritage building of the Nizam period, which presently houses Hyderabad Urban Development Authority Office. The State government has allotted land at Madhapur, the city's IT hub, where permanent campus would come up later.
It will be fourth consulate in India after Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai.
Hyderabad and Secunderabad are twin cities.
Hyderabad is still restoring its old nawabi culture and Secunderabad has all the marks of the modern city!!!
Nizaam was the ruler of Hhyderabad and Hyderabad was one of the most powerful, self-ruling states during British-Raj in India. Nizaam had to surrender against the Indian Goverment and Hyderabad and AndhraPradesh was declared as one of the states of Sovereign India!!!
Now Hyderabad and Secunderabad are called as Cyberabad...emerged as Silicon cities
Cyberabad name was given by Bill Gates when he visited India during his monopoly days in Microsoft!!!
I was working in Hyderabad on a small project of 2 months..with BPL and Sanyo!!!
