Health Care in Bangalore City - need for a health plan
Bangalore is the second fastest growing major metropolis in India and a hub for IT and other industries, defense organizations, colleges and research
institutions. The growth in population has been due to in-migration from across India and the expansion of the city limits. In 2007, the Bruhat
Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) was formed by merging 100 wards of the erstwhile Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) with 7 City Municipal
Councils (CMCs), one Town Municipal Council (Kengeri) and 111 villages. BBMP now consists of 198 wards and a population of nearly 10 million.
