Welcome to kengeri

I have started this blog to discuss and talk about the various aspects of kengeri and the surrounding areas.Kengeri has grown in all dimensions.Hithertho considered a small village too far off from the bangalore city, kengeri has now come to occupy an important place by being strtegically located with various engineering and medical colleges and industries.

Kengeri is expanding in all directions.Earlier , it consisted just the main kengeri town which was spread on the either side of mysore road to a depth of about 1 km and the kengeri satellite town.Slowy, the boundaries of kengeri has expanded with new layouts being coming up on the agricultural lands surrounding kengeri.All the small and big coconut grooves,flower gardens have made way for new layouts.At many places all the coconut trees are being axed to make way for these layouts.Greenery is definitely depleting around kengeri.

It has also caught the attention of politicians with many bigwigs like our CM Yediyurappa visting kengeri for the inaguration of BMTC TMC and also shobha karandlaje visiting kengeri and its surrounding areas every now and then.With the BBMP elections to be conducted within a few months all the would be councilllors are preparing for their own battle in the small turf.

Economic activity has also increased in and around kengeri.The first and foremost reason for this being, increased real estate activity in and around kengeri and the setting up of the sub registrar office in kengeri.This has given rise to a number of businesses like xerox,docoment writing,internet cafes,etc.The next reason being the strategic location of kengeri serving as a hub for the many BMTC bus routes.There is a large no of floating population here, which feed many businesses like mobile/acessory shops,bakeries ,hotels,vegetable/fruit vendors,etc.The third reason being surrounded by large no. of educational institutions and industries like toyota kirloskar, a large no of students and employees of these organistaions have made kengeri their home.These and many other have also helping build the economy of this small town.

It is in the above context that, i have started this blog on kengeri.Hope to get a good response from all you kengerites..


  1. I stay in Mariyappana palya. I first congratulate your efforts in bringing people in common area together. We need portal like this which will address the concerns of Kengeri people. Once such request which is long pending is a train from kengeri to white field.

  2. I send that... Currently a few guys from Kengeri, KST and nagadevanahalli (including me) are using the current train service to commute to KR Puram.
