The growth in popularity of the Electronics City and resultant high demand for land in and around this estate prompted the GoK to create an extension to the originally formed estate. This led to the tag of Phase I for the original area and Phase II for the newly formed area. While Phase I is completely to the western side of the Hosur road highway, Phase II has parts of it on either side. In order to overcome the resultant confusion, renamed the areas as ‘East’ and ‘West’ of the highway. Electronics City West comprises all of Phase I and a small part of Phase II. Electronics City East comprises the rest of Phase II.
