Economic Impact of Terror Attacks & agitation against North Indians
The attack on Mumbai is not just an attack on the nation's security but has struck the national economy. Mumbai and Maharashtra that is the considered the commercial hub of India has been hit and the confidence of the investor has been shaken.

There is a possibility of a shift of industries and corporate offices from Mumbai and Maharashtra to the other neighbouring states especially Gujarat. The effect may not be felt immediately but in a few years the change will be clearly perceptible. The business person who invests see the proportion of return on his investment done.
