I am interested to invest 3 million USD on India and I'd like to know the best city with less real state duties.

I am afraid of Muslim invasion (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan) to India.. could be worthless if that migration it's not controlled on near future.

Modi already confirmed that China did not enter and violate the India's territory beyond the 1962 line of control so it was the dishonest scammers from the corrupt Indian border military that not only misled innocent Indian soldiers to intrude beyond of the 1962 line of control into China's territory to build infrastructure but also attacked innocent Chinese first with iron clubs who attempted to stop the Indian Intruders from building infrastructure in China's territory which resulted the ugly situation what we see in the news now.
Modi should have this matter immediately investigated thoroughly through reliable, honest investigators and then arrest and punish the dishonest culprits in the corrupt Indian border military for instigating the unnecessary border conflict without respecting the 1962 line of control which brought shame through dishonesty not only to Modi but also to the whole nation. The strong foundation of a nation is built on honesty not on dishonesty.

It is worthwhile to complete things that are worth starting and ending. Smart people always do things from beginning to end.
