India officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second most populous country, and the most populous liberal democracy in the world. India is a union of twenty-eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. New Delhi is the capital of India.
Vapi is a city and a municipality in Valsad district in the Indian state of Gujarat. It is situated on the banks of Damanganga River in southern Gujarat, India. Vapi falls under the taluka administration of Pardi. Vapi had a population of 71,395.
Around 28 kilometers south of the district headquarter city of Valsad, it is surrounded by Union Territories of Daman on the west and by Dadra and Nagar Haveli on the east. Economic and industrial growth of the recent decades has, however, blurred the physical boundaries, and the small stretch of roughly 21 km of Daman-Vapi-Silvassa has almost become a monolith. The industrial township of Vapi holds its place of importance on the industrial map and it is arguably the second largest industrial area in Asia in terms of small-scaled industries, predominated by Chemical industry plants with, unfortunately, its hazards.
Vapi Industrial zone The development of Vapi Industrial Estate was started by GIDC in 1967, which has spread to 11.4 square kilometers and houses over 1500 industries, majority of which are small-scale units. Today, the township predominantly hosts Chemical plants to the extent of about 70 percent of the total industries which mainly includes Chemical Distillation, Pesticides, Dyes, Dyes intermediaries and paints. Other major industries include Paper, Packaging, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics, Rubber, Textiles, Woods, Glass, and food products. Another striking feature of Vapi is the Comman Effluent Treatment Plant. This is the largest of its kind in Asia treating the pollutants of these units before the efluent is released in the Daman Ganga River.

It can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
