    I am soon to move to Bangalore, and I would like the help os the forum users to find out which place is good to move to and where I can find some good flats on rent in Bangalore.

    I am not looking for an expensive area but where middle class people live and local amenities are available.

    Hello, @Maneera, welcome to the forum!


    Overview

    Bangalore has emerged as one of the most developed cities of India. Sometimes, it is even referred to as the Silicon Valley of India, primarily because many IT companies have made the city their hub. But certain features make the city stand out from all the other metro cities in the country. For instance, Bangalore has very mild climate all-year round. It experiences less of the extreme temperature variations that cities like Delhi and Hyderabad. Bangalore isn't that highly populated as well, thus you can enjoy your personal space here. Public transportation is very functional too, especially with the high number of BMTC buses that ply through different points in the city. And when it comes to accommodation options, there are plenty around the city too. Since the city is home to a number of bachelors and bachelorettes working in the IT industry, the real estate companies here have made it a point to consider the needs and financial capacities of these locals.

    Best Areas to Stay in Bangalore (Budget to Mid-Range)

    For those who are moving to Bangalore but are not too keen on spending too much on flats, there are some areas that you can consider for budget accommodations. Bangalore is a vast city and generally, the areas in the central part of the city have higher rental rates. If you want to save some money on rent, it's better to choose areas away from the city centre and those located more on the outskirts of the city.

    1. Maruthi Nagar - Located on the western side of Bangalore, Maruthi Nagar is a small locality which isn't as densely populated as other areas in the city. It is located a few kilometres away from the ISKCON Temple of Bangalore. It is located a bit further from IT hubs though so if you're working in such areas, you might need to wake a bit earlier to reach work. You won't need to worry about your basic needs for food though as two branches of Heritage Fresh are located close to the locality. For entertainment centres, the Orion Mall is just three kilometres away while the Vaishnavi Sapphire Centre is just seven kilometres away. A number of bus stands line the outer side of the locality too, you can easily reach them by an auto rickshaw, like the BMTC Bus Stop and Shankar Nag Bus Terminus. Finally, the most important part, average rental rates for a one-bedroom flat here costs around Rs. 7,000 to Rs. 9,000 per month. However, you can also find rates as low as Rs. 3,500 to Rs. 5,750 per month.
    • Average Rental Rate for One-Bedroom Flat - Rs. 7,000 to Rs. 9,000 per month
    • Grocery Stores Nearby - Heritage Fresh
    • Entertainment Centres Nearby - Orion Mall and Vaishnavi Sapphire Centre
    • Nearest Bus Stands - BMTC Bus Stop and Shankar Nag Bus Terminus
    2. Koramangala - Next is Koramangala, a posh locality located in the southern part of Bangalore. This locality can be termed as a middle-range one, as the rates here are higher than the previous locality. However, Koramangala is one of the best localities when it comes to amenities and entertainment centres. A short distance from your residence and you can reach entertainment centres such as The Tibet Mall, The Market Square, The Oasis Centre and The Forum. Most IT companies also surround the locality so if you're in that industry, you can easily go to work and come home as well. Such IT hubs like Whitefield and Electronic City are located close to Koramangala. Several branches of More Supermarket and Godrej Nature's Basket are within the locality too, meaning you don't need to venture out for your grocery needs. Being on the mid-range, prices for one-bedroom flats or apartments here cost around Rs. 11,000 to Rs. 16,000 per month. But there are also flats that cost beyond that, even reaching Rs. 25,000 per month. You can still enjoy staying here even on a budget, you just need to split the rental rate with a co-worker or friend. For transportation, bus stands are located outside the locality but still within a good range.
    • Average Rental Rate for One-Bedroom Flat - Rs. 11,000 to Rs. 16,000 per month
    • Grocery Stores Nearby - More Supermarket and Godrej Nature's Basket
    • Entertainment Centres Nearby - The Tibet Mall, The Market Square, The Oasis Centre and The Forum
    • Nearest Bus Stands - Koramangala 1st Block Bus Stop and Madiwala Bus Station
    3. Marathahalli - Located close to areas like Whitefield, Domlur and Electronic City, Marathahalli is another good choice for those working in the IT field. Once a sleepy little locality, Marathahalli was affected by the IT boom in the city and reaps benefits from it as well. Real estate also flourished in the area and you can find many apartments or flats for rents here. Rates are on the mid-range side but you can find affordable options too at times. Several shopping areas line the place like the Inorbit Mall, Cosmos Mall and The Forum Value Mall. The Innovative Multiplex is also just a walking distance away from the locality. The best part about this theatre? It has the cheapest rates for movie tickets in the city. One downside with the locality is that bus stands are located a bit further away, the closest ones being the HAL Kalyana Mantapa Bus Stand and HAL Police Station Bus Stand. You need to walk the distance for a long time or hire an auto rickshaw to save some time. Village Hypermarket and Ragam Supermarket are located quite close to the locality though. Rental rates for a one-bedroom flat costs between Rs. 8,500 to Rs. 15,000 per month.
    • Average Rental Rate for One-Bedroom Flat - Rs. 8,500 to Rs. 15,000 per month

    4. Malleshwaram - Mainly known for being a part of Old Bangalore, Malleshwaram is a great option for those who want to feel the nostalgic side of the city. The locality gives you the best of both worlds, wherein a mixture of the old and new can be experienced. It's a place where residential apartments exist with old houses, where temples are very apparent but there's still newer establishments like malls and shops. Some of the nearest malls to the locality are Golden Heights and Sigma Centre Mall. However, they are located on the outskirts of the locality so you still need to ride an auto or taxi to reach them. Two branches of More Supermarket are located outside the locality, one in the south and one in the north. Bus stands are located within the locality itself, which are the Malleshwaram Circle Bus Stand and Malleshwaram 18th Cross Bus Station. For the devout Hindus, there are several temples within the locality but the most famous ones are the Maramma Temple and Ayyappa Temple. Rental rates for a one-bedroom flat cost around Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 30,000 per month.
