Welcome to the Electronics City, India’s own silicon valley and home to some of the best known global companies. Located in Bangalore, the Electronics City was conceived way back in the mid-1970′s as an Industrial Estate exclusively for Electronics Industries. Today the industrial estate boasts of an oasis of large, medium and small industries spanning software services, hardware; high end telecommunications; manufacture of indigenous components; electronic musical instruments, to name a few.
In 1997, the maintenance and upkeep of Electronic City was handed over by KEONICS to ELCIA (Electronics City Industries Association).
The next milestone was achieved on 18th March 2013, by the way of notification issued by GoK vide Notification No. UDD/69/MLR/2010 declaring Electronics area as “e-City Industrial Township Area” and thus conferring township status to e-city.
The new industrial township has been governed by ‘Electronics City Industrial Township Authority’. All services relating to estate maintenance, safety, waste management within the township jurisdiction, will be the responsibility of Electronics City Industrial Township Authority. It is an Urban Local Body. A copy of the Government notification is attached herewith for your reference.
The only Township of its kind to engage Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) to safe guard the Industrial Estate and the Member Companies.
