"Let’s bring people together"
Ramamurthy Nagar is an area located in the north-eastern part of Bangalore Metropolitan City. It is a rapidly growing suburb, surrounded by areas such as Banaswadi, CV Raman Nagar and Krishnarajapura, Halehalli, Kalkere, Babusapalaya.
During the mid-1980s, the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) had developed some of the areas in north-east Bengaluru like OMBR Layout, HRBR Layout, Kasturi Nagar and East of NGEF Layout. The area beyond that was Ramamurthy Nagar, which was mainly farmland. In the mid- and late 90s the IT boom paved the way for the growth of Bengaluru and this also influenced the growth of East Bengaluru. In the vicinity of these well planned BDA layouts, Ramamurthy Nagar became a desirable place to live. This area is not developed by the BDA. The farmers converted their farms into layouts and sold the sites to interested buyers which soon became home for the bank employees.
Gradually the near farm lands are also converted and divided house plots and the entire extended areas like Anandapura, Akshaya Nagar, Koudanahally, Manjunatha layout, P&T Layout, , Halehalli, Varanasi, Kanakanagar, Margondanahalli, Sunshine layout, JinkeThimmanahally, NRI Layout, Sankalpa Layout, Sunny Layout, Kalkare, Esther enclave layout, Riches layout, Banjara Layout, Part of Channasandra, Horamavu east, Jayanthinagar, Manjunathanagar, Raghavendra Nagar, Hoysalanagaretc in addition to the existing areas like Annappareddy layout M Viswesharayiahnagar, Muneswaranagar, Reddy (CVSR) Layout, Yerannapalaya, Dasappa layout, Muninanjappa Layout, ITI Colony, Vijanapura, FCI Layout, Brindavan Layout, Subramani Layout, and East of Kasthuri Nagar.
Until the early 2010s, there were not even many tarred roads or streetlights or water connection. Bore-wells and water tankers were the only source for water. On drilling bore-wells, water was available even at 300 feet depth. This region came under BBMP in 2008 and drastic development took place.
