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.

  • It lies in the Bommanahalli constituency of State assembly.
  • The layout, which is built on land reclaimed from the Agara lake, is located between Hosur Road and Sarjapur Road.
  • This layout is known for its quiet environment with lots of gardens and parks.
  • This locality was developed by Bangalore Development Authority in 1985 .
  • 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) [1] and the Oxford College (founded in 1974) and the very famous National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT).[2]

HSR Layout is about 7 km from Bangalore's other large residential area of Jayanagar, and 2 km from Koramangala.
