And if one looks at the capital city Mumbai, the record looks even more impressive. Mumbai, the sixth largest metropolitan city in the world (geographically), contributes a whopping 33% to income tax, 40% to total foreign trade and a colossal 60% to the total customs duty collections in India. And just for the records, Mumbai is also home to 90% of all merchant banking activities of the country.
