Hi,

I'm thinking about moving to Bangalore, but i'm really concerned with the health risk of how bad the air is there.

Can anyone give me any up dates on smog garden??? Is it that bad? If so is there a place that's nice outside the city that isn't covered in pollution?

I have a 3 year old and i'm concerned for his lung health any advice would be greatly appreciated.

India is polluted(considering the no of blue-sky days) and the major cities are even more.
Bangalore is known as the worst place for asthma people bcoz of lot of allergens and pollens found in the air here. The pollution added to it makes it even more worse.
staying in the outskirts of Bangalore would be the best way to beat the pollution. you need to choose a place which is near to national parks or preserved forest area.

Post Well

Hi,
I agree that Indian cities are polluted, however Bangalore is called the Garden city of India. So it has lot of pollens in air, which is allergic to some people. It is comparitevely better than any other city in India. It is 6th neatest city in India and the first metropolitan. It is quiet in outskrits though. It is much better..... I stay in bangalore and i assure you, you will love the weather of Bangalore. welcome.

I don't know what this means. Perhaps the source of this claim would make it clearer. Thanks.

It means as much (possibly the same) as "first metropolitan"

Post hey


Hey sorry there is one error, it is 12th, not 6th.:-) according to recent survey, bangalore is 12th neatest city in India. Please go through this link for the news. I hope that answers your question.

A bit of perspective perhaps...

Outdoor pollution better than smoking zones: study

BANGALORE: If you are tired complaining about pollution during traffic jams and on roads, digest this: indoor air pollution in many places is much higher than the levels outdoor. The primary reason: tobacco.

Levels of particulate matter of less than 2.5 microgram per cubic metre in smoking locations were two times higher than smoke-free locations and 14 times higher than the WHO target air-quality guideline.

Hello Cleanpocket,
Air quality inside Bangalore city could be a cause of concern. Try exploring areas towards Bangalore South, as they tend to have more open space and lesser number of manufacturing units.
