The site allottees of Kempegowda Layout have written to the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) to revive its plan of creating a hi-tech zone in the layout.

The hi-tech zone is planned to be an industrial and commercial area.

The allottees say the zone is required as the BDA is creating the layout for over 40,000 families across 4,000 acres of land.

The government has also proposed a multi-modal transport hub at Challaghatta, which will also help the hi-tech zone, he added.

The allottees said BDA is asking people to occupy allotted space, but this can happen only if there is development, which will happen when industries and commercial spaces are created. Economy and infrastructure will boom when departments work in tandem, they said.
