Ahmedabad has been a wealthy city all through the history. Even during the Mughal period it was a flourishing commercial, financial and industrial centre. Ahmedabad has a rich historical heritage and forms the hub of the most prominent regional corridor extending from Vapi (Valsad district) near Mumbai to Ahmedabad. Its growth from a major trading centre for gold, silk and cotton in medieval times to become the Manchester of India in the 1940s reflects the continuity of its distinct enterprise and business leadership. Due to its location in the cotton growing belt, Ahmedabad has been a centre of manufacture of cotton textiles. The coarse cotton cloth woven here had a local market and hence survived competition from fine British textiles dumped in India. The establishment of the first cotton textile mill in 1861, without any special climatic advantage and before the advent of railways, and the way in which this industry expanded over the years speaks for the high level of business acumen. Traders and financiers occupied important position in the city and their activities generated wealth in the city. Each community specialised in particular activities.
