The Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has extended the last date to file objections for the Mysore-Nanjangud Local Planning Area 2031 (Mysore Master Plan 2031) from October 8 to October 22, according to a release.

Objections received from the public will be reviewed, and where feasible, incorporated in the draft plan before it is officially notified in the gazette to give it legal sanctity. The MUDA said written objections pertaining to the plan or even suggestions may be filed by NGOs, citizens, institutions or elected representatives. The master plan had so far received over 700 written objections from stakeholders and the public.

While the MUDA has not given any reason for extending the last date, the ongoing Cauvery agitation, which has hit life, could be one of the factors.

Criticism

There has been widespread criticism from NGOs that the master plan in its present format did not represent the people’s view.
