Gujarat International Finance Tec-City Company Limited (GIFTCL) and Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Limited (IL&FS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Cisco for the Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT) project in presence of Shri Narendra Modi, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat.


Under the MoU, Cisco will collaborate with GIFTCL in achieving GIFT’s vision of becoming a world class financial services centre, with infrastructure and facilities benchmarked to global standards. The State of Gujarat has emerged as the fastest growing region in the country. In addition to housing one of the largest manufacturing bases in India, Gujarat also accounts for a disproportionately large share of the investor and entrepreneurial population in the country. Recognizing the potential of the State as a centre for the financial services industry, the Government of Gujarat formulated GIFT as a mega project to realize this vision. Thus, land (initially 550 acre) between the commercial capital of the State, Ahmedabad, and the Administrative Capital of the State, Gandhinagar, has been allotted for the development of a Central Finance and Business District (CFBD).

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. GIFT aspires to catalyse India’s large financial services potential by offering to global and local financial services firms world-class infrastructure to tap the opportunity and best-in-class quality of life to attract top talent in the country.

GIFT promises to be a Central Business Hub, not just for India but also for the rest of the world. The city is designed to provide next level infrastructure, services and platforms backed by State-of-the art Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Secured and Resilient Data Centres benchmarked to Tier IV standards, Integrated and intelligent townships with high tech City Services management.

Cisco is the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet and Internet Protocol (IP) based networking solutions and is pioneer of the concept of Smart+Connected community practice (also known as Intelligent Urbanisation). Cisco will bring together a portfolio of products, services, partners, platforms, solutions and make appropriate investments. Cisco will utilize its deep industry knowledge in working together with GIFT for establishing a world class city.

The parties will jointly market, develop, implement and explore financing options of the GIFT Project. A joint task force will be constituted to work out legal, technical and financial aspects of this cooperation.

Shri Narendra Modi, Hon’ble…

Here are a few of the most constructive SEO Techniques.


  • Title tags should be written in a resourceful way. It should be formed with the main keyword targets as the basis. It is the most significant tag of a web site when it comes to optimization. The main keyword of the web site that is being optimized should be the one that is placed in the title tag. It goes without proverb that every site should contain its own title tag.
  • Carefully choose the words and phrases to be allocated to Alt tags. Alt tags are not in fact compulsory, but they are provided for text browsers because images do not get shown in web browsers, and it is the Alt tags that give information to the users about its meaning. The rule in Alt tags is quite easy: only key phrases or key words should be place in Alt tags, overdoing may reason a site to disappear in search results or get banned from it indefinitely.
  • Manage keyword density. Percentage occupied by keywords or keyword phrases in a web page is called keyword density. Preferably, keywords are used one time in the title tag, one time in the heading tag, and one time in bold text. Keywords should be placed at the top of the page, and phrases can be put in every paragraph, depending on how long the paragraph is.
  • Determine the suitable page size for the site. Speed is a very important part to the success of a site, and it significant to both online visitors and the search engines. It is suggested to limit web pages under 15K.
  • Make eye catching themes for the pages. Search engines are more and more receiving particular about themes. Content should be formed as often as likely, and the pages should be maintained to 200 to 500 words. The content should be made in relative to the market, and should be linked to the other associated content present on the site.
  • Make the site’s design interesting for the viewer. All efforts in optimization will be ineffective if the site is inadequately designed and if its contents are tough for viewers to read. There should be extra text content than HTML content in the web site. Viewers should be capable to use the pages in all main browsers. It should be noted that most search engines turn away from JavaScript and Flash.
  • Don’t Use bad techniques. Using them could catch a site blacklisted from the search engines. Spamming is a no-no, and the following techniques are spamming: doorway and identical pages, tiny or invisible text, cloaking, usage of keyword phrases in author tags etc.

Advertisers should put in mind that simplicity is the source of a successful SEO campaign. Sites should be simple for viewers to locate, follow, and read, and should contain relevant content.
