As you already know, Bangalore is called the ‘Silicon Valley of India’ due to the large number of information technology companies located here. Many multinational corporations, especially computer hardware and software giants, have operations in Bangalore. Bangalore’s IT industry is divided into two main “clusters” — Electronic City and Whitefield. New clusters in Bellandur, Hebbal and Challaghatta have emerged in the last few years along the Outer and Inner Ring Roads and in C V Raman Nagar near Old Madras Road.
