The reason beahind writing this post is this: I got recruited into Oracle through my campus placements. And I got to know that I will be posted in hyderabad within a month.  The offer letter said that I am supposed to report to Hitec city by June 29th 09. And I was curious to know whats so HIGH-TECH about this place. So I Googled to find the wikipedia entry and a couple of blogs. But that did not quench my thirst. So I decided to fill in this gap and write a detailed post. Here it comes , the hitchhikers guide to hitec city…

HITEC stands for Hyderabad Information Technology Engineering Consultancy City. It is “the” technology hub of Hyderabad… situated about 15 – 20 kms from the main Hyderabad city.
Let me be frank, in the first month I stayed here, I couldn’t figure out how to spell the name of this city. Some call it Hightech and others use hitech. And you will find different anagrams of it on the hoardings. But the guys at the post office have no issues whatsoever in whatever spelling you choose to put in the postal address.

Accomodation :

If you are looking for a place near Hightec city there are 2 choices you can consider.

1. Either stay in Madhapur which is closer to the Hyderabad city but has lesser number of flats available for rent

2. Look out for a rented flat in Kondapur which is farther from Hyderabad city but is a total residential area and has better choice of rented flats available.
