Whitefield in Bangalore is one of the largest technology clusters in South Asia. It follows a lifestyle of ‘walk to work’ with EPIP (Export Promotion Industrial Park) & ITP-B (International Tech Park - Bangalore) in the vicinity. The EPIP is one of the country's first Information Technology Parks and ITP-B houses offices of many IT and ITES companies. The location also enjoys excellent connectivity to the major MNC’s like Hindustan Unilever, Britannia, HP, Capgemini, Tata Elxsi, ITPL, Brigade Tech Park, Bhoruka Tech Park and many more. Apart from MG Road in the vicinity, there are two other major four-lane roads that connect Whitefield to Bangalore city. These roads are Whitefield Road via Mahadevapura and Varthur Road via Marathahalli. Both roads intersect with Karnataka State Highway 35 (SH 35) which runs in the North-South direction (Sidlaghatta in the north to Anekal in the south). Moreover, the Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) also has a large Inland Container Depot located just off Whitefield road near ITP-B. The much anticipated Namma Metro Rail Project by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) will soon connect Whitefield with other locations in the city. Various shopping malls like The Forum Value, Phoenix Market City, Park Square Mall and Inorbit Mall exist in the area for your convenience.
