Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka, is one of the fastest growing metropolitan cities in the world. The name Bengaluru originated from Benda Kala Uru (the city of the cooked pulses), or Vengaluru (village of Vengala/Venkata) and Bengavaluru (town of body guards). Over the last two decades, Bengaluru has transformed into a hub of ingenuity and innovation through technology based industries like Infosys and Wipro, world class educational institutions like the Indian Institute of Science and Indian Institute of Management and public sector undertakings like the Indian Space Research Organization and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. With the availability of world class infrastructure and skilled professionals, Bengaluru contributes heavily to the economy around 34 percent to Karnataka’s GDP and 1.4 percent to India’s GDP
