NEW DELHI: India Business Report, the popular weekly business programme on BBC World, is back with a brand new series City Business Guide which will profile 12 most important business cities in India from Sunday, 5 October.

According to an official report, City Business Guide will focus on key centres including Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore, Ludhiana, Surat, Guwahati, Chennai, Jaipur and Cochin. The series will give viewers an in-depth perspective on the way business is conducted across the country.
