These days we are talking about depleting dollar reserves in
the country. One of the major cost to the country is the import of the
petrol/diesel

I was just trying to understand the savings that it can have
if people stop using their vehicles for going to work specially in the A-tier
cities like Bangalore

Bellandur + sarjapura road locality is a home to almost
50000 IT professional . Out of these 50000 we can roughly assume that 40000 use
their vehicles to go to office.

Out of this 40000 atleast 15000 are people using cars and
25000 2 wheelers

Just estimating the fuel cost for the 15000 cars (Diesel
and Petrol price diff is around 20 Rs . I will take an average of both the
prices say 65 Rs which is equal to 1$)

Now on an average the car give 10 km/l

And the average distance to office is about 10km

So each car is burning 2 liter of fuel every day which is
30000 liters which costs 30000$

Now for the 2 wheelers

The average is about 35 km/l. and all the 2 wheelers are
petrol based

So for 20Km (average to and fro distance to office) the
consumption is 20/35 liter

The cost per day is 20/35 * 1.3 (petrol is 80 Rs which is
around 1.3 $)

So the cost is 25000*20/35*1.3=18600$

So on an average the total fuel burnt is worth $50000 ($30000+$18600) !!!

This is just one of the many localities in bangalore. We can safely assume that there are atleast 6
such localities (Koramangala, airport road, BTM, Banashankari, Malleshwaram,
Hebbal).

If you do an estimate it is ($50000* 6) $300000 worth of fuel that we
are burning everyday.

I think we can save the country by travelling by public bus
atleast for a day.
