Recently in Karnataka many districts including Bengaluru were lashed by rain. Many places in the city were flooded due to this rain. Now the Outer Ring Road Companies Association has submitted a letter to Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai. It said that the outer ring road in Bengaluru had suffered a loss of Rs 225 crore due to the recent floods.

The Outer Ring Road Companies Association represents all major IT and banking companies in the Outer Ring Road segment. The letter mentioned, 'Due to the flood on ORR on August 30, there was a loss of Rs 225 crore, as the employees of the companies were stuck on the road for more than 5 hours.

Inadequate infrastructure on the ORR has now reached crisis levels. Although only 30 per cent of the total workforce here comes to work, the lack of infrastructure has raised concerns about the city's ability to handle further growth.' Many big companies have invested in this place.

The letter further states that 'poor infrastructure in the IT corridor is jeopardizing the safety and welfare of employees.' It is estimated that more than half a million professionals are employed on the Outer Ring Road between the Central Silk Board and the KRpuram corridor, and with various support services and indirect employment, this corridor of about 17 km provides employment to one million people.

The outer ring road between Bellandur and Sarjapur was flooded due to overnight rains on August 29 and 30. The letter has since been sent. The association requested the Chief Minister to review the existing gap in infrastructure in the corridor. There has also been a request to speed up the metro project in the area as the 2020 deadline for the Whitefield and Electronic City metro lines has not been met.
