Bengaluru Will Be A Dead City In 5 Years, According to Scientists At Indian Institute Of Science

Rampant urbanization and invasive real estate growth are going to destroy Bengaluru’s ecosystem, a study by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) recently revealed. According to the numbers, there’s been 525% growth in built-up area in the last 40 years, corresponding to a 78% decline in vegetation, and an almost equivalent decline in water bodies.



According to Prof T V Ramachandra of the Centre for Ecological Sciences the IISc, this sis “‘senseless growth”. “What’s the point earning better when the food that you eat is adulterated? As a result of unplanned urbanization, Bengaluru is going to be an unliveable and dead. A city in the next five years,” he told the Deccan Chronicle.




Urban expert Ashwin Mahesh said that the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) was to blame, for not creating a planned city:  “The BDA has become an agency which facilitates land deals for the benefit of corrupt politicians. People feel it should be closed down,” he said.
Environmentalist Yellappa Reddy said, “The government is not competent enough to foresee the future implications of the present growth. There is no proper policy on land use and water. Land is being exploited on the whims and fancies of the politicians.”
Bengaluru used to be the most in=demand metropolitan cities for its climate and affordable housing.
