After Chetanya went ahead and published the links to Ani’s hard work, I had to step up give him the push. What Ani/self had done was to collect information about staying costs across general activities and provide an idea to many of the folks who might have that question. This is Bangalore specific and data wrt rent can go down depending on where you stay in Bangalore.
In general Bangalore is very expensive compared to other metros. The apartment sizes are reducing and many of the folks have mutliple flats etc which are being rented out at exhorbitant rates. Prices are coming down but since money flows here from rich Telugu land, malabar land, Tamizh area real estate prices have maintained high peak. The infrastructure status is such that any thing which gets done – is good thing.
