Stating that MUDA is planning to reserve land for Start-ups, Manufacturing Industries, Software companies, Educational Institutions etc., along Hunsur, H.D. Kote and T. Narasipur Roads, he said that the revised Master Plan is being prepared keeping in mind the growth of the city in the next 50 years.

    It is nice of the authority that they did not tell the public after the master plan was completed. There is no need to undertake an exercise like Mysuru Master Plan in secrecy without informing the public. During the preparations of earlier master plans, public were always informed and they were even encouraged to participate. MGP had participated in every Mysuru Master plan ever since it came into existence in 1989. Even at this stage it would be appropriate if MUDA invites all the stakeholders before completing the plan.

    Mysuru has truly come of age as the real sister of Brengaluru! There go vast areas of green fields and forests, as the City grows and grows.
    Today, if some one like me looks at the map of Bengaluru, Many areas that have become part of urban Bengalutru were really distant viilages in 1960s.
    The outcome of all the above, is massive expansion of fossil fuel driven vehicles. No wonder, the G20 meeting in Rome now considers India as a polluter at par with China and US. India, has a massive human carbon footprint., as it busily adding one Australia every 6 months.
    Narendra Modi should have stayed at New Delhi, instead of attending the G20 leaders meeting , and COP26 climate change meeting in nGlasgow, Scotlknd.
    He and Indians should be really ashamed of contributing massively to this planet destruction.

    I’m a native Mysorian and possess a huge love towards Mysore. Born and brought up in Mysore. By profession I’m a software engineer.

    Having set the context, I strongly request the Mysore administration to not bring in any more software companies or startups to Mysore (I’m saying this myself being a software engineer) or any development which would lead to inorganic growth of the city. Bringing in more and more software companies would also give way for lot of outsiders which spoils our rich heritage culture. We have all seen what has happened to Bangalore in the last 20 years since the software companies have come to Bangalore!

    At the moment, having worked at Bangalore in the weekdays and coming over to Mysore in the weekend give an immense pleasure. Mysore is a calm place and feels relaxed and provides a lovely environment (unlike a mechanical life like in Bangalore). Mysore has been traditionally a retired people’s paradise, let it be like that pleasssssssse🙏! Don’t spoil the city in the view of developement.

    Mysore as a compact, healthy and environmentally friendly city where people walked or cycled to work , was history by 1970s. It was never a pensioners’ paradise, but a city which did not suffer from the pain of commuting miles from home from work. Those who are born after 1970s, has no idea what this City was , its beauty and serene atmosphere in particular.
    India needs manufacturing industries desperately , but driven by renewable energy sources., and not more software coding sweatshops, doing cheap Labour for Western IT companies. There is no innovation in this approach from what Indians do, just supplying cheap IT Labour, calling it software engineering.
    Mysuru has reached a state, where, nothing stops it from becoming a big younger brother to Bengaluru.

    Just to add to my above post. As world leaders are promising to cut the toxic emissions by 2050 at Glasgow, only Modi not heeding the emissions cut by 2050, wants his country to achieve the net zero by 2070. In other words, he does not care about global warming.
    India possesses, a singular source of energy in the form of Sun, many months a year. Yet, the solar energy development work is too slow, and it should be leading in this area ,which is the biggest growth area in the next few decades. Industries based on this energy should be welcome in Mysuru, as it has massive export potential, and drives other industries too; as I have explained above, the City lost its status as the serene and environmentally rich city decades ago, but still can contribute positively to the environment issues, through the solar energy work.

  7. Roopadarshi says:

    Those who atre saying that Mysuru has had enough expansion, and should have no more, miss the point that India has a galloping population issue, is on the way to overtake China as the most populated country in the world. Compared to China which is a giant economic power, India is a pygmy in economic terms., and needs to expand its economy, as well as house its teeming millions of people it is generating each decade. Hence, I would not blame the planners for suggesting expansion of the City and adding revenue generating , and job creating industries. I agree that the Sun beating down on India is going waste. But, its addiction to cheap IT outsourced work will not go.
    I too have seen Mysuru with all its glory during 1950s and 1960s, when the population of India was a mere 350 million. It has lost all its virtues after 1970s, and should state categorically, it was never a pensioners’ paradise then.
    If you want to prevent , this City expanding further, you need to prevent the massive rate of population increase, which is impossible to achieve.
    India is choking with people , and what is annoying is its government is trying to export massive numbers of them as immigrants to Western countries, who go to destroy the cities of these countries too.

    Does not need outer ring road now…planning is ok.
    First improve the existing infrastructure and do proper maintaining.
    Encourage electric vehicles and solar power in all sectors………only way out prevent polution

    Are we in fools paradise? Villagers are selling their agriculture lands which were not rewarding. Now farmers not interested in farming any more, these lands land up with unscruplous developers with MUDA supporting them. Individual developers are converting their purchase into plots which do not have proper connecting road, to the existing road. Plots do not have proper water and drainage system. MUDA is happy to collect taxes, and further collect cleaning charges which is more than the property taxes. Till date No piece of land is cleaned by MUDA. Wonder how citizens are tolerating this daylight robbery. Now we have this great idea of REVISED MASTER PLAN, by the new MUDA commissioner. Agreed the commissioner has to work to stay in his chair.

    Instead of speaking nonsense about india not committing to climate change please listen to this. Hope it doesn’t hurt your head

  11. citizen says:

    Mysuru will grow and it should grow in a good manner, don’t talk non sense it should not grow and all, example you people had cycle or Bajaj scooter and may be a office job, now you have cars and your kids are engineers and doctors this is growth with improved quality of life.
    Mysuru need better planning at this stage immediately, if not it will go in Bangalore way, look at Hyderabad infrastructure how good it is and well planned compare to Bangalore.
    Decongest Mysuru spread it in all 4 directions, plan wide smart roads, plan electric tram trains, single free roads, regulations should be enforced on water harvesting, solar energy for above 5000SQFT construction, provide state of art infrastructure like flyovers, underpass to reduce carbon emission, cycle tracks with shaded trees inside areas, good public connectivity with E buses or electric trams, regulations for IT parks with 70 free green space, smart waste management, grey water treatment plants in large scale across city, plan it now and plan it for next 50 years. Everybody need jobs but don’t need development. Develop on Eco tourism , cultural tourism rather Night life tourism, create lake boulevards with no vehicle zones.

    @Sam. Thank you very much for the link that provided the facts and background about climate change, if anybody is really interested in facts this is a good resource. Gravitas is an unbiased channel which still preserves integrity. Many individuals commented on climate change are either morons or unscrupulous in taking sides with western media who don’t want India progress. India needs to eliminate this garbage mindset first. They become experts on everything by reading NYTimes

    Wonder if the most corrupt and inefficient MUDA has any semblance of town planners and aware of citizen participation in the planning process. Oh let me guess, they don’t know the meaning of planning.
