Mysore emerges from shadows of Bangalore
MYSORE: Emerging from the shadow of its cosmopolitan neighbor
Bangalore, Mysore was witnessing a flurry of activities in many fronts and was
all set to evolve as a brand and alternative destination in Karnataka.
The city hitherto known for its rich history, heritage and
regal past, was now promising to be the next hot industrial destination, not
only N Karnataka, but across the country. Making the task of building 'brand
Mysore' seems to be easier, as the information technology (it) majors have
committed to invest crores of Rupees and create thousands of jobs here.
Even though Mysore, located just 140 km away, lagged behind
Bangalore for about three decades in terms of industrialization. The royal city
could take on the state capital, as it scored better in offering good quality of
life, population free atmosphere and lived up to its reputation of being a
centre of education and knowledge, the it honchos of the city told UNI after
finding a place among the top five tourist destinations in a survey conducted by
the Union Tourism Ministry recently, the city had been ranked among the top ten
in a study conducted by a real estate consultancy 'knight frank', which puts the
Mysore city on ninth among the 15 cities, considered as emerging growth centers
in the country.
The study was conducted on the basis of real estate, people,
physical infrastructure and social environment with a conclusion that India's
hottest emerging city is Chandigarh.
Mysore was rated by all categories of respondents, as the least
polluted and was ranked higher then other fast growing urban centers like
Coimbatore, Indore, Kanpur, Surat, Lucknow, Visakhaptnam, Jaipur, Nagpur and
Patna, a sub-registrar office in the city pointed out, explaining the reasons
for the real estate boom in the city.
The heritage city has suddenly become the cynosure of all eyes,
with a flurry of activities being witnessed in infrastructure, housing,
education and investments in highways and airport projects.
