You can also use our ready reckoner to assess safety in your preferred locations.


Investigate before investing 

One is often pleased to get a rental in a quiet neighbourhood. But that’s not good enough; one must investigate about the area before moving in. Usually, few pockets in cities have higher crime rates compared to others. There is no harm in checking the crime rate in the locality. There are several apps, online information and reports that provide such information. But crime is not the only factor that discourages people from investing in  a locality; unruly children, traffic noise and loud parties also play a key role . If there are pubs and regular festivals in the area, it is best to check out other areas.

Places to live in Bangalore

Indira Nagar is good for working professionals. The rentals are high, but the area is well connected through public transport and has good accommodation options.

Marathahalli is full of people working in the IT sector. It is cheaper and close to HAL airport. Hebbal in the north is another locality that is well connected to the rest of the city. One of the most popular areas is Kormangala where you can find all basic facilities. The rentals are not too high and it is easily accessible through public transport.

It is close to Basavangudi, JP Nagar, Banashankari 2nd Stage and BTM Layout. Ulsoor has PG accommodations with the most reasonable rates.

Crime & sin in the city

The crime rate has increased in the IT capital of India. The top crimes are burglary, car stealing, vandalism, assaults and armed robbery. Even corruption and bribery have gone up. While it is safe to walk around during the day, it isn’t’ so safe at night.

But except for some stray incidences, most areas are safe. Citizens taking part in their own safety has helped the city to remain safe not only for working professionals but also for everyone else. Many prominent citizens are stakeholders in the city’s administration and this helps the good reputation the city has. The low crime rate in the city means that most citizens are happy with their life.
