The third edition of the index also rated Bengaluru as the 'most forgetful city' in the country for the third time in a row, while Delhi and Mumbai ranked second and third most forgetful cities.

Besides these usual items, users also forgot things like knee pads, gold chains, baby prams, ukuleles, milk sachets and even live fish.
