The much awaited Mysore City Master Plan 2031 was launched by district in charge minister S A Ramadas here today.

Speaking after launching the plan, he said the state government has given its nod to the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) to issue a notification on the Mysore Master Plan 2031 and place the draft plan before the public for their suggestions and objections, if any, before the submission of a final draft of the plan for its approval.

The master plan envisages new proposals for new roads, housing policy and traffic management. As on today the city population is 13 lakh and is expected to reach 23 lakh by 2031, he added.

The infrastructure development would be given priority according to the needs of increased population as well as traffic movements.

Once the plan gets government approval, the local planning area will go up from 495 sq km to 509 sq km with the inclusion of 117 villages, including those in Mysore and Nanjangud taluks in Mysore district and Srirangapatna taluk in Mandya district.

Mr Ramdas said the local planning area would cover three taluks and the areas under the Mysore City Corporation (MCC). The previous master plan was approved in 1997 and it was in force until 2011.

"Our aim is to plan for the people and with the people," he said, adding a notification in this regard would be issued soon. Master Plan 2031 focuses on the city's development for 20 years. (UNI)
