What is urban agglomeration?

The comprehensive development plan has ‘three circle approach’. The innermost circle covers the areas coming under the control and administration of City Corporation. The second circle includes areas beyond corporation limits, which are governed by BDA, City Municipal Councils and even Panchayats.

The first two circles together constitute ‘urban agglomeration’. Various acts like Income Tax Act and Urban Land Ceiling and Regulations Act 1976 (since repealed in Karnataka) refer to urban agglomeration.
