About constituency

[flexiblemap src=”http://data.opencity.in/Data/Karnataka-Assembly-Constituency-163.kml” width=”100%” height=”400px” ]

 

Shantinagar constituency is located in the heart of the city’s business and commerce district. There are a number of malls and traders here that contribute to the brisk business. The wards are Shanthi Nagar, Domlur, Jogupalya, Agaram, Vannerpat, Shanthala Nagar and Neelasandra.

As it is a well-known and high-revenue assembly segment, Shanthinagar is the centre of a lot of attention in the city. At the same time, there are other parts of the constituency that do not enjoy the basic civic amenities or facilities that are their right.

Razing of the EWS slum is  still an issue for some in the constituency, as alternatives have not been offered to the residents. There are still a number of residents on the streets, who call themselves refugees. Other issues include lack of proper waste disposal, treating parks and playgrounds as dumpyards and faulty drains. The constituency saw implementation of Bengaluru’s first garbage bin experiment, based on which the BBMP announced that more bins will be installed across the city.

Shanthinagar is a thickly populated area. A caste-based population analysis done in 2013 puts the number of Muslims in the region at 30,000; SC/STs at 72,000; Kurubas at 14,000 and Reddys as well as other communities at smaller percentages.

  • Number of voters in 2008: 81,420
  • Number of voters in 2013: 1,03,734
  • Number of voters registered now: 2,18,461
