Demographic Changes over the decade in Bengaluru City
Benguluru City has been one of the fastest developing cities and during the decade from 2001 to 2011 it has shown more than 44% of population growth and the distribution has been non-uniform across the City. To achieve uniform population distribution in the jurisdiction of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), Delimitation of Wards was necessary.
Census 2011 Enumeration Blocks were registered with city’s base map in GIS environment and systematic spatial analysis of population was carried out. Ward boundaries have been defined in adherence to the relevant Act and Guidelines by the Government of Karnataka.
Wards have been delimited in such a way that the boundaries are coterminous with respective Assembly Constituencies in the BBMP area. The population for each ward, area of the respective Assembly Constituency, contiguity of localities, permanent infrastructures as boundaries, management of municipal functions and services and also the administrative convenience have been the important parameters in defining the limits and drawing the boundaries of wards.
