Reasons why we should change the name:

  1. The city is good, and definitely not bad.

Any place that is known as a smart city, and has these many accolades to itself demands a better name. This is why I propose that we change the name of Faridabad to Faridagood.

Faridabad is the largest city in the north Indian state of Haryana in Faridabad district. It is a leading industrial center and situated in the National Capital Region bordering the Indian capital New Delhi. Located 284 kilometers south of the state capital Chandigarh and 38 kilometers (21 miles) south of the national capital, Delhi, it is the most populous city in the state of Haryana. The river Yamuna forms the eastern district boundary with Uttar Pradesh. The Government of India included it the second list of Smart Cities Mission on 24 May 2016.

The newly developed residential and industrial part of Faridabad (Sec. 66 to 89) between the Agra Canal and the Yamuna River is commonly referred as Greater Faridabad. The area is being developed as a self-sustained sub-city with wide roads, tall buildings, malls, educational institutions, and health and commercial centers. Sectors 66 to 74 are Industrial Sectors whereas Sectors 75 to 89 are Residential Sectors.

Faridabad is also a major industrial hub of Haryana. 50% of the income tax collected in Haryana is from Faridabad and Gurgaon. Faridabad is famous for henna production from the agricultural sector, while tractors, motorcycles, switch gears, refrigerators, shoes, and tires constitute its primary industrial products.

The Faridabad Small Industries Association claims that Faridabad and Gurgaon districts account for almost 56% of the income tax collected in Haryana. Faridabad has been selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed as a smart city under PM Narendra Modi's flagship Smart Cities Mission.
