Uber has released the fourth edition of its Uber Lost and Found Index 2020. This index is a snapshot of the most frequently forgotten items, the most forgetful cities, as well as the days of the week and times of the year Uber riders tend to report items as lost in India.

While Mumbai has bagged the title of the most forgetful city in the country for the first time, Kolkata and Prayagraj have ranked as the second and third in the category. Backed by rider insight and captivating data, the Uber Lost and Found Index aims to educate riders in a fun yet informative manner about Uber’s in-app options available to them at the tap of a button, in case they lose or forget something in their Uber during their trip.

Over the last year, objects including phones, cameras, and bags top the list of items left in Ubers across India, followed by utility items like wallets, keys, clothing, and umbrellas in the top-ten most-forgotten-item category. Besides the usuals, the Uber Lost and Found has also seen unique things such as an acrylic artificial tooth, mangoes, medical prescriptions, exam notes, kitchen tawa, teddy bear, broom, to name a few.
