Nagpur, the best place in India now for business, says Hakimuddin Ali, Managing Director of Calderys India


Born in Raipur and educated in XLRI Jamshedpur, Mr. Hakimuddin Ali has had long innings with the Tatas, with his career graph climbing North impressively. He has been Head, Human Resources in Tata Steel and later Vice President of Tata Blue Scope Steel before taking on a job with ACC at Nagpur.
