Who rents in Zirakpur ?

Zirakpur is where the young stay.

Mohali, Panchkula and Industrial area Chandigarh house a large number of private companies that form the backbone of the private industry in the region.

Zirakpur has many housing societies and has an apartment culture as opposed to say Chandigarh and Panchkula where only Villas/Kothis are available.

These apartments offer cheaper alternatives to the people working in the private industries in Chandigarh, Mohali or Panchkula.

The services and amenities in these apartments are also better and modern than the villas/kothi style of living.

These factors along with easy connectivity, central location and short commute time make Zirakpur and attractive destination for those looking to rent an apartment in the Tricity.

Where to Rent in Zirakpur?

There are Majorly five main areas where you can rent an apartment in Zirakpur:

  1. Patiala Road and surroundings: Suitable if you are working in Mohali. This road provides easy access to the Airport road- A 200 feet road which runs from Zirakpur to Mohali. Patiala road can get a little busy during the rush hours and the Patiala chowk is especially notorious for traffic jams. You can get more details about the Airport Road Mohali here: Airport-road Mohali
  2. Ambala highway and surroundings: Suitable if you work in Chandigarh. You can enter Chandigarh in 5 minutes from this area. This road is a little busy but it is not too bad. All the major shopping stores, eateries and entertainment avenues in Zirakpur are located on this road.
  3. Dhakoli, Peermuchalla etc.: Suitable if you work in Baddi, Nalagarh or Chandi mandir. This area borders Panchkula sector 20 and offers good reasonable rental accommodation. The best part about this area is that it is so close to panchkula that you can get the best of both worlds here- you can live in a high rise apartment in Punjab and go for your morning walks in Panchkula which is in haryana.
  4. Nagla Road: Nagla road houses many housing societies in a small stretch. This area is just a 100 meters from the Chandigarh-Ambala national highway and offers both low cost (Maya Garden) and high end (Escon Arena) options.

Apart from these areas there are a couple of other areas where you can rent houses for a reasonable price. These houses however are not in a society setting.
