Six new layouts for Mysuru’s citizens

State government’s approval expected soon

The Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has sought administrative nod from the government for developing five new residential layouts in the city.

The new layouts where the MUDA will take up plot development to carve out sites and distribute it to the public include the Rabindranath Tagore Nagar 2nd Stage; Krishnaraja Wadiyar Layout; Swarna Jayanthi Nagar; Lalitadrinagar 2nd Stage; and Shantaveri Gopalgowda Nagar 2nd Stage. Though these projects were conceived a few years ago, it was kept on the backburner.

The sixth new layout proposed by the MUDA is the Balahalli Layout, which has already secured government clearance. A few minor clarifications have been sought for the R.T. Nagar 2nd Stage and Nalwudi Krishnaraja Wadiyar Layout, and are expected to be cleared soon.

With growing demand for MUDA sites and over 1 lakh site aspirants whose applications are pending, the authority has urged the government to expedite administrative clearance. MUDA Chairman M.K. Mohan Kumar told The Hindu that about 15,000 to 18,000 sites could be created in the layouts of which about 5,000 sites could be developed in Balahalli itself.

He said the MUDA will take up earthworks to clear or level the land as a precursor to layout development in anticipation of the administrative approval. Apart from social obligations, we have to compete with mushrooming private players in the real estate business,” said Mr. Mohan Kumar.

R.T. Nagar 2nd Stage will be developed on the lines of R.T. Nagar I st Stage where 1,760 sites of various dimensions have been developed and is located opposite the University Layout abutting the Outer Ring Road in Mysore South West. With broad roads and open spaces to cater to future requirements, the layout is spread over 230 acres, but the sites have not been distributed due to litigation. Mr. Mohan Kumar said the issue will be resolved soon. “We are confident of getting the stay vacated,” he added. The Balahalli Layout, conceived a few years ago, is also the location for establishing a satellite township on a 500-acre land for which the MUDA had earmarked funds in the 2014-15 budget.

The Krishnaraja Wadiyar Nagar is slated to come up near the Yadahalli and Lingambudhi villages spread over 205 acres. Likewise, Swarna Jayanti Nagar is poised for development in Chowdahalli village spread over 181.05 acres.

The administrative clearance for at least R.T. Nagar 2nd Stage and Krishnaraja Wadiyar Layout could be expected before June, according to Mr. Mohan Kumar.

But, given MUDA’s track record, it could take anywhere two to three years for the sites to be distributed.
