Kanpur
 

Kanpur is the ninth most populous city in India and the largest within the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is the second largest city of the Hindi-speaking belt after Delhi. Remains one of the oldest industrial townships of North India, although it has not kept pace with industrial growth in the rest of India due to political indifference. It has a metropolitan area of over 1,640 square kilometres (630 sq mi) and a city area of around 829 km2 with a population of approximately 5 million, With this huge population city also has lot of problems with traffic and pollution. Continuous development in the city like over-bridges, sewage lines and roads caused problems to citizens for last 2 to 3 years. The status of the city was upgraded when it was included in the "Counter Magnets" of National Capital Region (NCR). To tackle the traffic problem state government and local administration have planned to set up metro service in city known as Kanpur Metro. Owing to the city's industrial importance, one of the few branches of the Reserve Banks of India and Institute of Chartered Accountants of India were established in the city. It is also home to several globally recognized institutions such as IIT Kanpur, Harcourt Butler Technological Institute (HBTI) and GSVM Medical College.

Flora and fauna

Kanpur is home to many residential and migratory birds. Most of them can be spotted at Bithoor, IIT Kanpur campus and areas alongside the Ganga Canal. The city has Asia's biggest (area wise) zoological garden. Exotic species of flora are present at the CSA campus.

The Kanpur zoo is famous for its cages designed to provide a natural habitat for the animals, and has a vast variety of animals. The water supply system of the zoo is a work of art, by an artist and engineer in the Sinchai Department of that time, Murari Sharan Saxena. The Zoo is a part of a lush green area - The Allen Forest Zoo, Nawabganj. The entry fee is minimal, making it the major picnic spot of the Kanpur region. Indira Nagar is the greenest and most pollution free residential area of the city.
