Metro Rail Service started in Bangalore

A 6.7 km network, 12 minutes and a significant leap. India's tech hub Bangalore finally came on board the Metro rail Thursday, more than 30 years after the ambitious project was mooted, hoping for an end to its growing traffic woes.

The first metro in the Indian IT hub Bangalore rolls into service on October 20, 2011, a long-delayed and over-budget project to help the city's army of commuting software engineers and call centre workers. Despite its shiny corporate headquarters, Bangalore suffers from the same acute infrastructure problems that blight the rest of the country, with its reputation as a business-friendly high-tech centre already in peril.
