  • extreme water scarcity with almost the entire population dependent on private tanker water supply
  • lack of sewerage networks resulting in polluted lakes
  • traffic jams and high levels of pollution especially on Outer Ring Road
  • very little open spaces and parks for the public.

The constituency has active citizenry bargaining with the administrations for better infrastructure and quality of life. Whitefield Rising, a citizen group, has been active in getting more and more eligible people registered as voters, with its Million Voter Rising campaign.

  • No. of voters in 2008: 2,75,355
  • No of voters in 2013:  3,68,511
  • No of voters now: 470,878.
