Iru-Mudipu region in Dakshin Kannada to get industrial estate.
Karnataka government is developing an industrial estate at Bantwal taluk in Dakshina Kannada district, according to an official.
Inaugurating the national vendor development programme-cum-industrial exhibition in Mangaluru recently, SG Hegde, Joint Director of District Industries Centre, said that the government is developing an industrial estate on an area of 250 acres in Ira-Mudipu villages of Bantwal taluk in the district. This will help boost industrial growth in the region.
Referring to the industrial policy of the state government, Hegde said Bantwal taluk comes under the backward region. The industries coming up in that taluk would get an additional subsidy of 5 per cent, he said.
Problems related to power supply situation in export-import industrial park (EPIP) at Ganjimath in Mangaluru taluk have been solved. Land will be made available there for export-oriented industries, he said.
Speaking on the occasion, Nigam Vasani, president of the Kanara Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that the Karnataka government should take steps to showcase Mangaluru as the investment hub for industries.
He said that the region is connected by road, rail, sea and air. Dakshina Kannada district has good infrastructure for the development of the industries.
Lauding the role of MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) in the development of the country, he said they would play a major role in shaping the 'make in India' concept of the Prime Minister.
The two-day event was jointly organised by the Union Ministry of MSME, District Industries Centre, and the District Small Industries Association in Mangaluru.
