The second largest city in Maharashtra, Pune is a significant industrial center to the country.

My suggestion:
During a trip to India, I do not recommend stopping in Pune.
My review

Pune > is the epitome of so many large Indian cities: bustling with activity, polluted, dusty, and noisy. I have bad memories of it and cannot advise anyone to go there, not even for a stopover, during a trip to India.

When I was there in May, it was sweltering hot and that certainly didn't help me enjoy the city.

Pune is a very important university center for the country, and you'll come across many students from all over India. Without a doubt, those who love nightlife won't have any trouble finding places to go out, but beware, the way of life is not Westernized like it can be on the coast. 

In short, pass this one by...
