Mysore Urban Development Planning Growth of the City

Mysore is home to several education and research institutes of national importance. The tourism sector alone attracts more than 25 lakh visitors per annum to Mysore.

The alarming rate at which the city of Mysore is growing can be attributed to the increasing presence/ establishment of IT/ ITeS industries. The city is growing in the peripheral areas as can be seen in large scale residential/ housing layout developments in areas such as Vijayanagar, Belawadi, (along Hunsur Road) Siddalingapura (along Bangalore-Mysore Road), JP Nagar (along Nanjangud Road), Sathgalli (along Mahadevapura Road), Kurubarahalli (along Bannur Road) and Srirampura (along H.D. Kote Road)

Vijayanagar and Belawadi localities along Hunsur Road on the North-Western part of Mysore is experiencing rapid growth and this trend is likely to intensify further in the coming years. The spatial expansion of Mysore is largely contiguous and relatively compact.

The Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) is seeking to partner with residents for planned growth of the city.

In a decision that will have far-reaching implications, it has now resolved to ask the residents to part with their lands for development of roads. In the city limits, 10 feet of the plot will have to be given to the civic bodies when an application is made for change of land use like from agrictulre to non-agriculture purpose. For plots adjacent to national and state highways, 30 feet of the land will have to be left for public use.

Urban planners aver that Mysore’s growth powered by IT and ITES as also tourism and education, has resulted in the emergence of Mysore-Nanjangud stretch as an industrial corridor. The temple town of Nanjangud, 24 km from Mysore, is emerging as a new hotspot for long-term investors in land and home seekers.

Nanjangud has been included in the Local Planning Area and is part of the Mysore urban agglomerate.
