Mysore Master Plan 2031: The Mysore city may get the Comprehensive Development Plan before Dussehra festival.
The decision of approving the CDP had been recently taken to furnish the plan before the meeting of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, the city’s elected representatives and top officials.
BHAI’s (Builders Association of Indian) Commission, Mysuru and Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI), Mysuru chapter met the official of MUDA (Minister for Urban Development) Mr. Vinay Kumar Sorake in Bengaluru and they sought their intervention in delay of the CDP. The delay of CDP had highly effected the real estate project in the city.
The official of MUDA Mr. Sorake had visit the Mysore on Wednesday and said that there was no scope for modification in the present plan and the Advocate General of Karnataka had said the plan has to get going. “Of course, the local representatives had expressed their reluctance on clearing the CDP without certain corrections, which are being considered. In all probability, the CDP may get approved in 15-20 days,” he also added.
The Minister of MUDA said that MUDA prepared the Mysore CDP-2031 and the higher authorities had empowered the MUDA to revise the plan after one month of its approval. “MUDA can consider to introduce the revised CDP for addressing concerns, but changes are not possible at this state.
Another member of MUDA has also reportedly protest the implementation of CDP in its present form and suggested avoidance of the plan. The event was organized by the MUDA, the BAI, and CREDAI on Wednesday in which he said that the focus should be on decongesting the cities and developing them as smart cities. Land required for future development needs to be properly set aside. “What has happened today is that commercial growth is happening on the plots earmarked for residential purposes. Such inconsistencies need to be addressed” Mr. Sait also added.
According to the Mr. Sait, Mysuru is heritage city and these type of cities have certain limitation for taking up in the central business district.
The President of CREDAI Karnataka, S.V. Jagdish Babu said that the approval of CDP would trigger growth and expressed confidence that the character of the city won’t be affected. “The heritage character of the city will be retained, focus will be on greater Mysuru for vertical growth,” Mr. Babu said, adding that higher floor area ratio (FAR) was the need of the hour for addressing indiscriminate conversion of farm lands.
