- NRI perspective
I am an NRI and I really like Bangalore, but a lot of it's infrastructure is heading in reverse.
The Metro development looks ugly and will spoil some beautiful parts of the city. I hope that the benefits in mass transportation and reduction in pollution do compensate.
The inner city roads are getting worse and pedestrians are losing out in a big way - few pavements, lack of courtesy from vehicle drivers, hazardous to cross roads, low air quality. Let's see if enough traffic will move to the outer highways (when they are ready) to reverse this.
Too many malls / franchises and price levels are as high as those in the UK. Despite this it looks likely that they will manage to push out small traders and that will be a long term loss for the city.
For the quality, the cost of accomodation is definitely higher than in many of the big cities in Europe.CommentQuote0Flag
