Great lists for you to use and share. There's something for everyone here!

Over the years, the number of malls in India has grown rapidly. Post 2005 many new malls have started all over India. So much so that Indian metros are on a verge of a saturation point as far as shopping malls are concerned.

As you read, construction of many malls across India are on a full-swing. Of late, the focus has shifted from the metros and businesses are now looking at tier-2 and tier-3 cities. Cities like Gurgaon, Kochi, and Varanasi are looking very promising. With DLF supposedly building the largest shopping complex of the World in Gurgoan. 'Mall of India' in Gurgoan will have a floor area of 4,500,000 when completed.

The recently opened Lulu mall at Cochin in Kerala makes many other malls like smaller brothers to it. Second to it comes Phoenix Market City, Kurla in Mumbai. Bangalore also has a mention in the list; with few and far mentions of some other metro cities.
