Namma Bengaluru and Namma Metro
Bengaluru, the commercial and financial capital of Karnataka and a major economic centre in South India, has a rich history, and is now widely regarded as the ‘Silicon Valley of India’ for its role as the nation’s leading information technology exporter. According to the 2011 census, this megacity has a population of about 8.5 billion people and is expected to grow in the future. Despite rapid urbanization, Bengaluru has still held on to its nickname as the Garden City of India since the 1920s. This combination of having a great place to work, lush green spaces and good weather, makes Bengaluru a wonderful place to live in.
