The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) came into being with effect from 6th January 1976 under a separate Act of the State Legislature viz. the BDA Act 1976. This Authority combined in itself the Planning functions of the City Planning Authority and the developmental functions of the erstwhile CITB.

The Bangalore Development Authority came into existence in 1976 as a successor to the erstwhile City Improvement Trust Board. Development of Bangalore in a planned manner, creating quality infrastructure, provision of sites and services and catering to the housing needs of the underprivileged are the focus areas of the BDA.

Since inception, the BDA has allotted 76,000 sites to individuals for construction of residential dwellings. In addition, more than 800 civic amenity sites have been given for use by various public utilities, as also organisations, catering to the felt needs of the particular locality.

B.D.A. Cadre and Recruitment Rules have been revised and sent to Government for approval during April 2001.
