Here are a few of the most interesting Chennai facts and statistics I was able to dig up including population counts. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Chennai stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
