Bangalore, the capital city of Karnataka is a dynamic city and is home to most of India’s IT and tech firms. The city is always on the move, whether it is day or night with more than 60% of its residents belonging to other states of the country. The city which has otherwise always been famous for its amazingly delicious dosas and bio-diversified gardens, is today one of the fastest growing cities of India where the average household is much more affluent than a family living in other urban parts of the country.
When it comes to spending money on luxury and entertainment, a Bangalorean, typically is a sensible spendthrift. The average salaries and disposable income of the people here is considerably higher than the rest of the country. This is the reason why the city has witnessed tremendous evolvement in terms of real estate – residential apartments, luxurious hotels, malls and multiplexes have mushroomed in almost all parts of the city along with the growth and development of various industries here. Watching a movie in Bangalore is a favourite past-time of a Bangalorean. Since internet has made the process of booking movie seats and tickets much easier and comfortable, the people of the city spend as much on movies as in dining out and clubbing.
The fact that most of the crowd here are themselves quite tech-savvy and understand technology in and out, has helped a lot in the city becoming India’s one of the most progressive cities. The concept of standing in queues outside a movie hall ticket counter no longer exists here. Even an averagely educated person here knows how to handle a smart phone and Apps that enable smooth and prompt transactions online. Purchasing tickets for a movie in Bangalore is no longer about physically buying tickets from the ticket window – it is all about conducting the job online. With the presence of many leading retailers that offer this facility today – customers have no dearth of choices. Paytm, MobiKwik and PhonePe are few of the fastest growing e-ticket booking platforms. Not only do they facilitate easy pre-booking of tickets, they also do so in the most secure manner.
One of the foremost cities in India that is going cashless, the people here mostly use their credit or debit cards or even Netbanking to conduct most of their financial transactions digitally, whether in the real world or virtual. With the introduction of the electronic wallet system, the city is moving fast in adopting this particular method for all sorts of purchases and payments, offline or online. The mobile wallet is fast becoming the payment method for people booking tickets for movies in Bangalore online. This is because it is safe, is operated through the handheld mobile phone and removes the stress of carrying a physical wallet that can be stolen or be misplaced. Since most of the mobile phones today have login passwords or fingerprint scanning to open the device, the e-wallet has least chances of being used by an unauthorised person.
