Mysore is the second largest city in Karnataka and is one of the most peaceful and beautiful cities of India. Besides its numerous palaces and royal buildings, Mysore City is also known for proximity to several other places of interest such as Srirangapatna, KRS Dam and Shivanasamudra falls and Bangalore. With non-availability of land in Mysore, there is little hope for investors to acquire sites for residential purposes in the city limits.

The farmers will be stakeholders in real estate development and will be free to sell the developed sites to individuals at the market price prevailing on the day. If the MUDA acquires 40 acres from a farmer, 50 per cent of the land will be for civic amenities including roads and 10 acres of land will be used for creating sites. Of this, 40 per cent of the land developed into full- fledged sites will be the compensation for the land owner who will be free to sell it as per his or her convenience and at the rate he or she deems fit. The scheme is likely to be accepted by the land owners and farmers since the price o f real estate will only increase with time but the value of money will decline in real terms over the years.
