Electronics City, usually referred to as Electronic City, is a panchayat town in Anekal taluk, Bangalore Urban district in the Indian state of Karnataka, India. It is one of India's largest electronic industrial parks, spread over 332 acres (1.3 km²) in Konappana Agrahara and Doddathogur villages, inside Bangalore, India. It consists of three zones called phases – Phase I, Phase II and Phase III. Electronics City was established by Keonics, Karnataka Electronics, a pioneer in information technology infrastructure development. Keonics Electronics City has a world class infrastructure which has housed major IT /ITES companies such as Bosch, Wipro, Tech Mahindra, Hewlett-Packard, Infosys, HCL Technologies, Patni Computer Systems, CGI, Siemens, Tejas Networks, Yokogawa Electric, Genpact, Intel, Tata Consultancy Services etc. There are approximately 187 IT/ITES companies located in Electronics City.
Electronics City was the brainchild of R.K. Baliga, the first Chairman and Managing Director of Keonics, Karnataka Electronics. He dreamt of making Bangalore the Silicon Valley of India when he developed the concept of Electronics City. In 1978, Keonics established Electronics City on 332 acres of land in Konappana Agrahara and Doddathogur villages. The liberalisation of the Indian economy in the early 1990s by the then Indian Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao and then Indian Finance Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh helped Electronic City to become what it is today — the outsourcing capital of the world.
In 1997, the maintenance and upkeep of Electronics City was handed over by Keonics to ELCIA, the Electronics City Industries Association, having representatives from units in the enclave, for effective local governance and management. On 31 July 2012, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) council passed a resolution to bring Electronics City within the limits of Greater Bangalore. The resolution will be operational pending state government approval.
Biotech Park Helix, has been set up by the Department of Bio Technology in Electronic City. Transport facility has seen commendable improvement over the last couple of years. BMTC buses to all parts of the city and BIAL ply through Electronic City. Several residential projects are being developed in the stretch between Neeladri Road and Thogur. Reputed educational institutions and medical facilities are located in Electronic City. We also have a Doddathougur road, which host all sorts of shops of daily need.
The ten-laned mixed corridor elevated highway from Silk Board Junction to Electronic City was opened on 22 Jan 2010. The 9.985 km long expressway is the longest elevated national highway in the country. This elevated stretch, promises to help a commuter reach Electronic City from Silk Board in less than 15 minutes. The highway or Hosur Road, also has some buildings of some major IT players like BOSCH, Sasken, Convergys etc., along with showrooms of major auto manufacturers like Volvo, Audi, BMW, Toyota, Honda, Volkswagen etc.
