Sarjapur started to attract IT companies History

Located in South-East quadrant of Bangalore, Sarjapur is one of the fast developing real estate hub in the city. Even in the 21st century, Sarjapur was most rural in character and was headquarter for Anekal taluk until 1873, with a population of 3,017.

The major occupation then was sericulture. Raw, high quality silks were produced in the area since the reign of Tipu Sultan, which were transported to other centers that converted the raw silk into cloth. There was enough variety produced by the sericulture industry in Sarjapur that farmers were able to manufacture silks of different diameters that led to different textures in final woven cloth.


The travel account of Buchanan who visited Bangalore in 1800 gives an exhaustive account of trading and commercial activities of Bangalore. According to him, apart from Bangalore, neighboring villages like Agara, Halasur, Hesaraghatta, Varthur and Kengeri were centers of brisk wholesale trade. Sarjapur near Anekal was noted for Muslin cloth. Saries manufactured at Aralepete were famous throughout the state and were exported to far off places like Mangalore, Bellary, Bombay and other places near sea ports. But, today, finest quality of muslin is neither made nor manufactured in Sarjapur.


Progressively, from 1996-2002, Outer Ring Road came into existence which was proposed by BDA for ease traffic throughout the city. Also, during the late 90’s when the IT boom uplifted in Bangalore, Sarjapur started to attract IT companies and start-ups to set shop here.

Reasons being, connectivity to and from Sarjapur had improved by leaps and bounds. From the early 2000’s, with good connectivity to the major IT clusters of Bangalore, and well planned and timely developing residential and commercial infrastructures, this region’s prosperity unfolded.

Once known as a small village coming in Anekal taluk, today, boasts of hosting several IT majors. It houses Azim Premji Foundation, a university campus of over 75 acres and also an upcoming SEZ exclusively for IT on a land parcel of over 300 acres by Infosys.


Sarjapur’s connectivity to IT hubs and its location along the Outer Ring Road (ORR) is what makes it an excellent destination for residential and commercial developments. This area is well connected to other IT hotspots such as Whitefield, Electronic City, Bommanahalli, Bommasandra, Marathahalli, Silk Board Junction, Anekal, Koramangala and Madiwala. Home buyers enjoy the convenience of living close to their work place.
