In the state of Ut­tar Pradesh, Al­la­habad is among the big­gest cen­tres for com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties. Be­ing a promi­nent in­dus­trial town­ship, there are about 3000+ small scale or­gan­i­sa­tions and large and medium units of in­dus­tries num­ber­ing 18. An All In­dia Cen­sus for Small Scale In­dus­tries con­ducted for the 3rd time in In­dia, showed that about 10,000 units un­der small scale in­dus­tries that are un­reg­is­tered are found in the en­tire district, where the num­ber of peo­ple em­ployed runs into many thou­sands.

Most of the in­dus­tries are re­lated to glass and wire prod­ucts. Phulpur and Naini are the two im­por­tant in­dus­trial zones in the city, with many units of public and pri­vate com­pa­nies along with their fac­to­ries and of­fices. The unit of Bai­dy­nath Ayurveda is lo­cated in Naini.

ITI Naini, Geep In­dus­tries, Triveni Sheet Glass Ltd in Naini, IFFCO in Phulpur area of Al­la­habad, Ray­mond Syn­thet­ics in Karchanna, Hin­dus­tan ca­ble Ltd in Naini.

Three ther­mal power mega projects are in the pipe­line to be con­structed un­der the mega projects at Bara, karch­hana, and meja tehsils of Al­la­habad district.

The city of Al­la­habad has a good rep­u­ta­tion in higher ed­u­ca­tion and sees a num­ber of learn­ers and stu­dents from dif­fer­ent parts of the coun­try com­ing here. There is a cen­tral univer­sity, one Open Univer­sity, 3 deemed uni­ver­si­ties and many other col­leges and in­sti­tu­tions for tech­ni­cal and re­search pur­poses.

Al­la­habad Univer­sity is the old­est univer­sity, In­sti­tute of En­gi­neer­ing and Ru­ral Tech­nol­ogy in Al­la­habad of­fers cour­ses and diploma in dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines of en­gi­neer­ing and also has var­i­ous de­gree cour­ses that are un­der the af­fil­i­a­tion of Ut­tar Pradesh Tech­ni­cal Univer­sity. Whereas In­dian In­sti­tute of In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy or IIIT Al­la­habad is a well known en­gi­neer­ing in­sti­tute, where peo­ple can pur­sue var­i­ous post grad­u­ate and un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses in the field of com­puter sci­ence and re­lated sub­jects. In or­der to en­hance the ex­cel­lence in the field of IT, these in­sti­tutes were started by MHRD.

Buzzing streets of civil lines in Al­la­habad is well known as com­puter mar­ket in city how­ever, it is a place for other mar­kets too. We can say that it is the cen­tral busi­ness district of the city. Indira Bhawan and Bi­hari Bhawan are the promi­nent build­ings where deal­ers do busi­ness. De­spite of sta­ble growth in IT, there can be done more to de­velop as IT hub. Com­puter dealer as­so­ci­a­tions in the city are work­ing in this re­gard and stand out for is­sues re­lated to IT part­ners time to time.
