India’s largest cities have seen a significant increase in travel time due to poor traffic conditions, with commuters spending between 4-6 extra days on the road every year than they would have, without congestion.
Speaking at the All India Management Association (AIMA), Infosys founder N R Narayana Murthy shared his views on people breaking traffic rules and regarded Delhi as a city where 'indiscipline is the highest'.
New Delhi typically adds 23 minutes to the commute for every 10 kilometres of travel due to traffic congestion, shows data collated from location technology firm TomTom International. The situation is similar in Mumbai, which adds 22 minutes. The number increases to 32 minutes for Pune. Bengaluru is the worst, adding 36 minutes per 10 km of commute because of adverse traffic conditions
