About Karnataka

Karnataka, in southern India, was formed in the year 1956. Before that the region was much smaller than its current size, comprising the regions belonging to the Kingdom of Mysore (till 1947). In 1956, when states were formed across India by redrawing borders (within the country) based on linguistic demographics, the state was considerably enlarged based on regions speaking its principal language - Kannada. This much larger region was known as Mysore State or Unified Mysore. It was only in 1973, on November 1, that Mysore State was renamed as Karnataka. It is India's eighth-largest state in terms of population, and sixth-largest state in terms of area (size). Karnataka is among the leading states in India in the IT sector, and the state capital - Bengaluru - is often called India's 'Silicon Valley' or 'Silicon Valley of the East'. According to the 2011 census, Karnataka has an approximate overall population of around 6.1 crore (61 million) people.
