Websites that track traffic in Indian cities

Although currently not very accurate, there are websites that track traffic in Indian cities -

* (7/Sept/2012 Update) Google Maps Live Traffic - Google Maps has started offering live traffic information for major roads in six large Indian cities and their surrounding suburbs: Bengaluru, Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad.

The Google Maps feature of showing “typical” traffic conditions for a particular day and time, based on historical data is interesting.

The live traffic info does not currently appear to be accurate. I've been following their map along the route I take & though Google Maps shows there is congestion (represented in red) the road has been unusually traffic free.

In comparison, MapMyIndia does a better job -


Traffic.MapMyIndia.com - Currently shows traffic conditions in Delhi, Mumbai & Bangalore

MapMyIndia uses information gathered from vehicle tracking systems that it has deployed with call centres as an enterprise solution, as well as GPS systems for taxis that are a primary source of information. These are all connected GPS systems. MapMyIndia has benchmarked average speeds on roads, which they compare with realtime data for traffic information
