abstract
Bangalore is one of the fastest-growing cities in India. It in the southern part of India and has become an economical and political center of the region. This paper aims to report the system of urban development in Bangalore and clarify characteristics of residents in suburban areas. Bangalore became the country's fourth-largest metropolis in 2001, having a population of 5.69 million. The city was well on its way to industrialization, thanks to foreign and domestic investment. This industrialization spurred extensive migration into Bangalore, which caused urban sprawl. In order to control urban growth in Bangalore, the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) was established and made the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP). After 1984, the CDP was modified twice in accordance with the population growth rate. The BDA has now put the master plan for 2011 into operation. The increase in population caused a serious housing shortage. The BDA has supplied 63,063 plots and 7,296 houses since 1976. Most of houses were constructed for economically weaker sections of the households. In most Indian cities, urban development is entrusted to each state development authority or housing board. In Bangalore, however, the BDA makes a master plan, develops housing estates, and supplies houses for the urban middle class. Recently, the BDA has begun to supply high income group and middle income group type houses in the municipal areas. The Karnataka Housing Board (KHB), whose territory is the whole of Karnataka State, also supplies housing in Bangalore. However, the BDA has reduced housing supply because of a shortage of government funds. In this research project, I studied the urban development of Yelahanka, one of biggest new satellite towns in Bangalore. Furthermore, I investigated the characteristics of its residents. Yelahanka has several types of housing, in order to accommodate mixed social classes. There are many EWS (Economically weaker Sections) houses which were originally supplied for factory workers and staff who work i
