There are about 1.41 lakh female engineers in Bengaluru, which is the highest in India.

In fact, this is just a bit more than 30% of the overall number of engineers in Bengaluru. But this is not all. There is an exceeding count of women who join the workforce.
Bengaluru continues to attract such a large number of engineers. The scale of the IT sector is an advantage. Bengaluru is still most attractive city, as it was more cosmopolitan than Kolkata and Chennai, and was cheaper than Mumbai for the younger generation. Unlike in many cities, language is not an issue. Locals form the minority in the IT sector.
Yearly, around 4 lakh engineering students are produced from the State and neighboring areas. For anyone setting up industries, there is manpower and skilled labor base already present, but for the government, there needs to be a thrust towards ensuring all these engineers are absorbed.
