ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “MUDA presents Rs. 38.57 cr. surplus budget”

    MUDA like its big brother BDA, is a money guzzling organization, having no plans for proper implementation. Layouts are formed , with no proper access to main roads and existing arterial roads. Now this proposal of MRTS tax, takes Mysoreans into a tail spin. What sort of MRTS is MUDA planning? is it bullock carts , or tongas, or buses or metro rail? MUDA commissioner please stop acting like a joker. Think of implementation before giving a press statement. To quote an example, there is a new layout formed in Belvadi area by State Govt. Employees association. The entry to this layout of some odd 200 sites is a road which connects Belvadi junction to Vijaynagar 4 th stage. The main road is criss crossing through village areas where only one vehicle can pass. If this road has to cater for atleast 100 vehicles of State Govt. employees layout, can the commissioner explain how the vehicles should pass???? Please visit this improper approval of layout.
