We have all heard of the Bengaluru blues that people struggle to find housing in the city. The Silicon Valley of India is gaining international repute and many important businessmen and industrialists are frequently visiting the city. In order to meet their demands for villas and houses, the Karnataka government has announced the construction of a total of five satellite towns around the outskirts of Bengaluru. These apparently ease the load on the city.
2,000-Acres Satellite Towns Outside Bengaluru To be Created
This particular project is being undertaken with the aim of easing the load on the city. Currently, the city is overcrowded and many people struggle to find affordable housing. According to an article published by Money Control, many prominent businessmen and industrialists visit the city.
In order to accommodate their demand, the city must find the land required at the earliest. The Money Control article said that the Housing Minister Zameer Ahmed Khan has directed the Karnataka Housing Board or the KHB to create a project report to build luxury villas around the city.
This is to meet the growing demand by the VVIPs whose visits to the city are increasingly frequent. Ahmed justified the project by saying that these satellite towns will curb the development pressure in the city.
Will Comprise 1,000 Villas & 25,000 Houses
According to reports, a total of five satellite cities will be created. This project will be spread across a whopping 2,000 acres with each city being the size of around 500 acres. The entire project will be constituted of around 1,000 luxurious villas and more than 25,000 houses.
Since these are all luxury projects created primarily for businessmen and industrialists, it is unclear how the development pressure on the city will be eased. The demand in the city is mainly for affordable housing and not for luxurious villas. Nevertheless, the project is said to relieve the load that the city has.
