    • Historical Background
      • A succession of South Indian dynasties, the Western Gangas, the Cholas and the Hoysalas, ruled the present region of Bangalore until in 1537 CE. Kempe-Gowda a feudal ruler under the Vijayanagara Empire – established a mud fort considered to be the foundation of modern Bangalore. After the fall of the Vijayanagara Empire in 1565 in the Battle of Talikota, Bangalore's rule changed hands several times. Kempe Gowda declared independence, in 1638. The Bangalore fort was captured by the British armies under Lord Cornwallis on 21 March 1791 during the Third Anglo-Mysore War and formed a centre for British resistance against Tipu Sultan. Following Tipu's death in the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War (1799), the British returned administrative control of Bangalore to the Maharaja of Mysore and was incorporated into the Princely State of Mysore. The British found Bangalore to be a pleasant and appropriate place to station their garrison and therefore moved their cantonment to Bangalore in 1809 near Halsur. A town grew up around the cantonment, by absorbing several villages in the area. The new centre had its own municipal and administrative apparatus, though technically it was a British enclave within the territory of the Princely State of Mysore. Two important developments which contributed to the rapid growth of the city, include the introduction of telegraph connections to all major Indian cities in 1853 and a rail connection to Madras, in 1864. Bangalore's reputation as the "Garden City of India" began in 1927 with the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the rule of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV. After India's independence in August 1947, Bangalore remained in the newly carved Mysore State. The "City Improvement Trust" was formed in 1945, and in 1949, the "City" and the "Cantonment" merged to form the Bangalore City Corporation. The Government of Karnataka later constituted the Bangalore Development Authority in 1976 to co-ordinate the activities of these two bodies. Bangalore experienced a growth in its real estate market in the 1980s and 1990s, spurred by capital investors from other parts of the country who converted Bangalore's large plots and colonial bungalows into multi-storied apartments. In 1985, Texas Instruments became the first multinational corporation to set up base in Bangalore. Other information technology companies followed suit and by the end of the 20th century, Bangalore had established itself as the Silicon Valley of India. Today, Bangalore is India's third most populous city. Indian technological organizations ISRO, Infosys and Wipro are headquartered in the city. A demographically diverse city, Bangalore is the second-fastest growing major metropolis in India. With a gross domestic product (GDP) of $83 billion, Bangalore is ranked fourth in India by overall GDP contribution.

    • Topography
      • Bangalore lies in the southeast of the South Indian state of Karnataka. It is in the heart of the Mysore Plateau at an average elevation of 900 m. The topology of Bangalore is generally flat, though the western parts of the city are hilly. No major rivers run through the city.

    • Climate
      • Bangalore has a tropical savanna climate with distinct wet and dry seasons. Due to its high elevation, Bangalore usually enjoys a more moderate climate throughout the year, although occasional heat waves can make summer somewhat uncomfortable. The coolest month is December with an average low temperature of 15.4 °C and the hottest month is April with an average high temperature of 36 °C. The highest temperature ever recorded in Bangalore is 38.9 °C (recorded in March 1931). However, the suburbs of bangalore recorded temperatures as high as 41 °C which are now part of present day Bangalore. The lowest ever recorded is 7.8 °C (recorded in January 1884). Winter temperatures rarely drop below 12 °C, and summer temperatures seldom exceed 37 °C. Bangalore receives rainfall from both the northeast and the southwest monsoons and the wettest months are September, October and August, in that order.

    • Demography
      • With an estimated population of 8.5 million in 2011, Bangalore is the fifth most populous city in India and the 18th most populous city in the world. Bangalore was the fastest-growing Indian metropolis after New Delhi between 1991 and 2001, with a growth rate of 38% during the decade. According to the 2001 census of India, 79.4% of Bangalore's population is Hindu, roughly the same as the national average. Muslims comprise 13.4% of the population. Christians and Jains account for 5.8% and 1.1% of the population, respectively, double that of their national averages. The city has a literacy rate of 89%. Roughly 10% of Bangalore's population lives in slums mostly the immigrant population from other southern states of the country, a relatively low proportion when compared to other cities in the developing world such as Mumbai (50%) and Nairobi (60%).

    • Urbanisation
      • Bangalore's INR523 billion (US$8.3 billion) economy (2006–07 Net District Income) makes it one of the major economic centres in India, with the value of city's exports totalling INR432 billion (US$6.9 billion) in 2004–05. With an economic growth of 10.3%, Bangalore is the second fastest growing major metropolis in India, and is also the country's fourth largest fast-moving consumer goods market. Forbes considers Bangalore one of "The Next Decade's Fastest-Growing Cities". With a per capita income of INR74709 (US$1,200) in 2006–07, the city is the third largest hub for high-net-worth individuals and is home to over 10,000–dollar millionaires and about 60,000 super–rich people who have an investable surplus of INR45 million (US$714,299) and INR5 million (US$79,400) respectively.

    Property Purchase Guide

    Overview

    Any investment in property in India, whether for investment purposes or for personal use, is always a long drawn ‘ family matter ’. As it involves substantial capital, these decisions are not taken more than twice or thrice in an individual’s life span. This entails that there is a requirement of extensive deliberations, thoughtful considerations and balanced matured opinion making in order to ensure that your investments are safe and yield the planned ‘ return on investment ’ (ROI). In the succeeding heads we elaborate upon the various facets one must consider/keep in mind during decision making, shortlisting, purchase and exploitation stages of the investment.

    Decision Making

    The infographic below lists out the various factors which need consideration when one is taking a call for investment in real estate. The factors generally include, the reasons for purchase of property, the kind of property i.e. commercial or residential, availability of capital, the location of purchase, time duration of investment, expected returns (ROI) etc. The infographic also shows the inter-relationship/inter-dependence of these facets with each other (icons shown on to the right of a bullet) and provides a quick guide for decision making.
