A Master Plan for Bangalore's Development?

In Girish Karnad Reflects on Bangalore, India, you learn of Girish's view on haphazard growth of the city, with no effective, central, theme to aid in the city's growth. As a collective bunch, either the city fathers are overwhelmed, or clueless, depending on your point of view.

Several questions arise in anyone's mind, particularly if that someone has some experience of having lived in the city.
  1. Is it too difficult to analyze the effect of a new high-rise, or any major structure, before sanctioning its construction?
  2. How happy are Bangalore's citizens regarding how Namma Metro has evolved?
  3. As any local economy grows, it is bound to generate some discontinuities. Have the city fathers created a satisfactory template that can guide the city's growth? 
I, for one, would like to see a master plan at the BBMP web site.
