New Delhi: Phones, rings and bags are among the most common items customers have left behind in Uber cabs in India, according to a list published by the ride hailing app which also includes some unusual entries like puppies as well as a cheque for Rs 15 lakh.

As per the Uber Index released on Thursday, Bengaluru is the most forgetful city in India, followed by New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.

"Phones and rings are the two most commonly forgotten items, along with chargers and sunglasses. Surprisingly, there have been instances of riders have also left behind bullet-proof vests, potted plants, to pool sticks and kites, and even puppies," Uber said in the report.

While phones and rings are common items in India, some unique items people have left behind in their cabs include a cheque of Rs 15 lakh, keyboard, puppies, expensive watch, expensive footwear and liquor bottles.

The company added that riders can trace their misplaced objects by selecting that trip and the 'I lost an item' option in the Uber app.

If the driver picks up and confirms that the item has been found, both the rider and driver can coordinate a mutually convenient time and place to meet for its return.
