Gujarat International Finance Tec-City

Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT) is a globally benchmarked International Financial Service Centre (IFSC) developed by Government of Gujarat through a joint venture between its undertaking Gujarat Urban Development Company Ltd. (GUDCL) and Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Ltd. (IL&FS).

Recognising the potential of the State as a centre for the financial services industry, the Government of Gujarat formulated GIFT to realise this vision. The land of Central Finance Business District (CFBD) will subsequently be expanded and surrounded by Institutional Areas, Knowledge Parks and Integrated Townships. The CFBD is presently implemented in 886 acres of land. The project is an ideal blend of high quality residential, commercial and social facilities that optimise land and real estate values, global connectivity and gen-next infrastructure.

GIFT is conceptualized as a global financial and IT services hub, a first of its kind in India, designed to be at or above par with globally benchmarked financial centers such as Shinjuku, Tokyo, Lujiazui, Shanghai, La Defense, Paris, London Dockyards etc. The project is located on the bank of the Sabarmati River and is around 12 km from Ahmedabad International Airport. GIFT is easily accessible from all directions through 4-6 lane State and National Highways.

GIFT will cater to India's large financial services potential by offering global firms, world-class infrastructure and facilities. It aims to attract the top talent in the country by providing the finest quality of life. It is estimated that GIFT would provide 5,00,000 direct and an equal number of indirect jobs which would require 62 million square feet of real estate office and residential space. Like all leading financial centers, GIFT will target a 6-8% share of the financial services potential in India.
