HSR Layout, short for Hosur-Sarjapur Road Layout, is a relatively new suburb located in south-east Bengaluru, India. It has become a gateway to Electronic City, a major IT hub of the city. HSR Layout has emerged as a posh locality of Bengaluru with wide streets, parks and all modern civic amenities.
Now it has emerged into a leading residential area due to its proximity to the IT Parks of Bangalore.
Like many residential areas in Bangalore, HSR Layout is divided into Sectors (Sectors 1 through 7), which are criss-crossed by main roads and cross roads. Main roads run north-south and Cross roads run east-west. Some part of the neighbouring villages such as Agara, Parangipalya, Venkatapura, Mangammanapalya and Hosapalya are also part of HSR Layout. Designed based on modern town planning principles, the layout has a centralized BDA Complex, which houses the city administrative offices. It also has a number of small parks in various parts of the layout. Several renowned educational institutions are also springing up in the area, like JSS Public School (established in 2004)  and the Oxford College (founded in 1974) and the very famous National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT).
HSR Layout is about 7 km from Bangalore's other large residential area of Jayanagar, and 2 km from Koramangala.
