While these lighthearted discourses continue, a report has surfaced, highlighting the substantial economic toll because of Bengaluru’s traffic.

According to a study conducted by traffic expert M N Sreehari and his research team, the city reportedly bears an annual loss of a whopping Rs 20,000 crore rupees due to traffic delays, congestion, signal halts, time wastage, fuel consumption, and related factors. The traffic issues have not only hindered people’s productivity but have also created major delays in shipments for small and medium enterprises, thereby resulting in lessening the overall economic growth in Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India.
