Tumakuru, the academic city will take some of the pressure of Bengaluru. Decongesting Bengaluru and moving some of the leading businesses to Tumakuru will help in dispersing the regional growth and population.
Bengaluru is reeling under water and electricity shortage problems. In recent months, the city management has also been dealing with the problem of garbage disposal. The district of Tumakuru has access to water and plenty of land for further development. In addition, the district is the gateway to 17 other districts in the state of Karnataka.
Increased connectivity, infrastructure and civic amenities in Tumakuru will spill over to the neighboring districts in the long run. It should help the current south-centered industrial and technological development in the state to spread to other areas.
The state would focus in developing a basic sustainable socio-economic infrastructure that houses and serves 1 million people. The major challenge is to provide quality urban services such as 24×7 water supply, sanitation, drainage, solid waste management, sewage treatment.
