About the Constituency:

[flexiblemap src=”http://data.opencity.in/Data/Karnataka-Assembly-Constituency-156.kml” width=”100%” height=”400px” ]

The Mahalakshmi Layout assembly constituency is situated in northwest Bengaluru. It is considered to be the third largest residential layout in the city, following Jayanagar and Banashankari.

Its six wards are Mahalakshmipuram, Nandini Layout, Geleyarabalaga, Nagapura, Kamalanagar and Vrishabhavathinagar.

The layout faced a special problem when heavy rains lashed it in 2017, killing five. The Vrishabhavathi valley flooded houses between Laggere and Yeshwanthpur. Garbage and sewage choked the region.

Residents were furious and accused the authorities of having done little to improve the area. They urged the authorities to upgrade and improve it and received a plethora of promises, including upgrading 23 of the 53 parks here. Narrow roads and lack of water supply plagues the region. Due to fast growth, there has been an exodus of workers from Peenya to Nandini Layout and Mahalakshmipuram.

  • The total number of voters in 2008 :113,404,
  • The total number of voters in 2013:1,48,061
  • Currently, the number of registered voters: 2,86,923.
