Under Section 25 of the KTCP Act, 1961 Revision of Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) activity is periodic, once in ten years. The CDP of Bangalore, which was originally prepared and approved by Government in 1984 and later revised (first revision) and approved in 1995, needs second revision based on up to date physical developments and trends in growth of the Metropolis. Also, it is mandatory, under Section 25 of the KTCP Act to revise the CDP within 10 years after it is approved by Government.

Accurate, comprehensive and scientifically prepared base maps at different scales were necessary to commence the work on Second Revision to CDP. For this purpose Government in December 1998 approved the proposal of BDA for getting maps prepared from Aerial Photography by the NRSA of Hyderabad. NRSA had delivered first proof plots at scale 1:2,000 by July 2002. The proof plots were checked and returned to NRSA. NRSA was to effect corrections to maps and deliver second proof plots. Digital data and hard copies of the corrected maps are adequate to carry out planning surveys and planning studies. Therefore, work on Second Revision to CDP could commence from April, 2003. For the second revision of CDP and other services under the Indo - French Protocol, arrangement was being made to engage a French consultant. In this connection, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed in February 2003 with the BDA and M/S Strategic Conseil Etudes (SCE) consortium comprising the City Government of Paris (APUR) - the Greater Paris Development and Planning Authorities (IAURIF), the Sorbonne University and the Group 8; in the presence of French Prime Minister and the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Karnataka.

The commercial contract was finalised and signed on the 2nd of June 2003, officially launching the MSDI project, comprising among other activities, the 95 CDP revision.

To tackle the CDP revision exercise in the time frame and legal frame work (section 25 of the KTCP Act), four main components have been initiated in parallel:

a. A wholistic data collection process among the main private and public stakeholders.

b. A comprehensive ground Existing Land Use Survey including the CMC's and the BCC areas

c. "Urban diagnosis" and furnishing the "scientific" elements for 2020 "Bangalore vision"

d. The mapping and data consolidation activities, comprising of the preparation of the spatial data for urban planning and city management perspectives (data modelling, detailed data base and GIS design, etc)

City diagnostic surveys have been completed by the consultant which covers major areas like population structure, Urban pattern, social development, socio-economic matters, housing, civic amenities, infrastructure, traffic and transportation and institutional efficiency etc.

The map supplied by the NRSA in the scale of 1:2000 comprising of 699 tiles which was delivered to the consultants have been corrected for Geometrical consistency and standardization and all the maps are made GIS enabled.

In addition, ward maps have been prepared for all the CMCs after collecting data from the concerned CMCs.

The complete integration of survey numbers along with the existing village boundaries has been completed and exact boundaries of all the administrative limits of CMCs within BDA limits are marked. The digital version of the existing land use is prepared for all the agglomeration areas covering an extent of more than 500 sq.km.


Scientifically prepared large-scale topographical maps have reference to the World Geodetic System. Maps need updating by survey for new developments after the survey (Aerial Photography) for initial mapping. To carryout field survey manually, reference points, which are connected to the reference for initial mapping are required. For this purpose, the Authority had constructed during the year 2000, 600 survey monuments with specified metallic markers. The position of the points, with reference to the World Geodetic System in terms of co-ordinates was to be determined using Global Position System (GPS) receivers by observing satellites. This work had been entrusted to the Survey of India considering the technical, operational and cost parameters. The Survey of India has commenced the reconnaissance work in December 2002. GPS observation work was commenced on Jan. 27, 2003 and was completed for 510 points in the first week of March 2003. The second phase of work to fix additional control points to fill up gap areas and to re-establish disturbed points was taken up by BDA in June 2003 and additional points were fixed. Survey of India completed the GPS and Levelling work in October 2003. The final data for a total of 714 survey control points covering the entire Bangalore Metropolitan Area has been received from Survey of India in November 2003.
