One utters ‘’Bellandur’’ and the immediate recollection is that of the several IT companies that are lined along the Bellandur highway. An erstwhile sleepy and tiny suburban village on the peripherals of Bangalore, Bellandur has indeed come a long way.
Over the years, Bellandur gradually transformed into a mini-IT hub adorned with Tech parks and Special Economic Zones (SEZs) which has led to establishment of 100+ company offices in the area. Naturally, Bellandur has become a center-bed for many IT employees and this had led to the growth in residential real estate.
