Bengaluru will soon have an index that will evaluate the workforce or transitory population in each ward of the city.
        
Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) restructuring committee is working on this along with Azim Premji University.

The index will capture the population load of an area during day and night separately. Untill now, wards are formed as blocks with a pre-decided average population.

This is for the first time that such an index is being developed in the country. The experts say the new index would help in improving urban planning and would help balance out commercial and residential establishments in city areas.
 
Talking to Governance Now,  V Ravichandar, a Bengaluru-based urban expert and a member of BBMP Restructuring Expert Committee said that the project is in its initial phase and is undergoing analysis.

“It is the early phase of the analysis and I would be in a position to respond to this once we are done with it,” he says.

The development of this new index will also help in getting an overall assessment of the demand on resources like water, contribution to strain on infrastructure like traffic and garbage by residents and transient workforce in an area.
