Hosur, in Tamil Nadu, is the manufacturing hub for various big names like TVS Motor Company, Ashok Leyland, Titan Industries, etc., whereas the nearby district of Krishnagiri has plants for Ola, Ather, TVS, Tata Electronics, etc. The city is also close to Bengaluru (around 40 km), implying that the new international airport will ease the traffic at the Bengaluru Airport.
