Southern Slice: You Won’t Need to ‘Mind The Gap’ between Bengaluru And Hosur If Metro Plan Is on Track

Possibility of Bengaluru’s Metro being extended from the city’s industrial hub Bommasandra to Tamil Nadu’s Hosur.

Tamil Nadu’s industrial town of Hosur, which shares its borders with Bengaluru, can benefit tremendously if the Karnataka government decides to extend ‘Namma Metro’, the Bengaluru Metro Rail project, by an additional 20 kilometres.

The Southern states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, which have long been divided over the sharing of the Cauvery river water, could soon be united through the extension of the Bengaluru Metro Rail project. The proposal, which was discussed in a meeting between the Krishnagiri (TN) Lok Sabha member A Chellakumar, Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai, and leader of Opposition Siddaramaiah, would extend theNamma Metro, by an additional 20 kilometres, connecting Bengalurus industrial hub Bommasandra to Tamil Nadus Hosur, which is in close proximity to Electronic City, across the border in Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, Shanders projects, located in Electronic City Phase 2 & Bellandur/Sarjapur Road, offer investors a smart investment option that comes with the freedom of customization, and the peace of mind that comes with owning their own freehold property. With pre-approved loans from partner banks or a loan from the bank of their choice, investors can easily purchase a plot of land, where they can build villas ranging from 800sqft to 3600sqft of built up area, with prices ranging from ₹1.00 Crores to ₹2.35 Crores. Shanders is here to help investors make their dream homes a reality.
The Karnataka chief minister responded positively towards conducting a fact-finding report on the proposal, with suburban rail expert Sanjeev Dyamannavar believing that any form of transportation should blur geographical lines and should be planned in the interest of the country. Explaining how NCR, Noida, and Faridabad are already connected via suburban rail, Dynamnnavar said that it would be much more cost-effective to modernise and upgrade the system than the extension of the Metro, and suggested building the suburban rail similar to that of the Mumbai local trains.
