MUDA delegation in Bengaluru, interacts with BDA engineers

Bengaluru: Taking a cue from Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has decided to go for construction of flats on BDA model in Mysuru.

This was decided during the inspection of MUDA Chairman H.V. Rajeev, MUDA Commissioner Dr. D.B. Natesh along with technicians, to ongoing apartment construction sites at Kommaraghatta in Kengeri in Bengaluru this morning. 

The inspection team was accompanied by Co-peration Minister S.T. Somashekar, who is also District Minister of Mysuru.

The MUDA delegation interacted with BDA engineers on flat design; space required for two bedroom and three bedrooms flats; technology adopted; where all such flats are built or under construction in and around Bengaluru; people’s response, and plans to build flats at affordable price. Besides, details on lifts, staircases, soak pits, roads, and Under Ground Drainage (UGD) facilities at the apartment complex were collected. The MUDA Chairman also spoke to residents on design, interiors and basic facilities in the complex.

Later, talking to reporters, Rajeev said the MUDA has plans to build apartment complexes at affordable price keeping in mind the common people. In fact, this has been the wish of Minister Somashekar too. The flats would be built to the liking of Mysureans.

“Today, we have studied the BDA model and collected all information. After going back to Mysuru, we will make modification according to Mysuru style and start construction,” MUDA Chairman Rajeev added. 

Thanking Minister Somashekar for taking them to various construction sites in Bengaluru, he said plans are afoot to build 6,000 to 8,000 flats on Mysuru city outskirts and Ring Road. Construction in other areas would be taken up after seeing the response of Mysureans. “Further course of action will start under the supervision of the Minister,” he noted.

    What kind of life people lead in these high rise apartments-not quality American Candos, but built with low quality material, poor plumbing and poor drainage , and think of the kids who live with their parents at the 7th floor for example, not experiencing much the God-given earth!
    We can see non-native Mysoreans, say after living in the US for years, deluding themselves of Mysuru as an environmentally friendly place , anchoring in their homestead in one of those pigeon holes! They would have discovered that Mysuru loves these pigeon holes, huge Malls, cars which pollute, and full of money grabbers!
    Assume that such an inhabitant, in the above the floor has to go quickly to buy, milk, a bunch of green coriander leaves and essential some vegetables. He /she has to descend 7 floors down, even with a lift, given the quality of Indian technology, which can malfunction any time, a descent of a flight of stairs, could seem like descending the thousand steps from the Chamundi Hill top!
    What next then? A set of floating boathouses in Kaveri or Kabini rivers?
    If I were that Indian, having lived in the US, who came to live like this, I would have preferred a small wooden cabin in Wyoming!
