K’taka Industries Dept targets setting up 30,000 new MSMEs per year, ask for cluster development

Bengaluru, Sept 7 (KNN) Karnataka Industries Department has set a target of 30,000 new units  of MSMEs per year in order to boost the sector and create jobs, said  Darpan Jain, Commissioner for Industrial Development and Director of Industries & Commerce.

He was speaking at an interactive session organized by Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association (KASSIA).

Addressing the gathering, Jain mentioned that the State Government was very keen on promoting investments especially by the MSMEs.

He outlined some critical areas that were crucial for the growth of industries, water and the land being very important among them.

He said the Government was keen on supplying tertiary water for industries as Karnataka was a water scarce State.

“Steps were also been taken to provide adequate land for industries in the State and urged MSMEs to go in for cluster development. The Government was also very serious about improving industrial infrastructure in industrial estates and hoped that they would be able to use Special Purpose Vehicles for the purpose of maintenance of infrastructure,” Jain said.

He emphasized that financial linkage and availability of skills were the other crucial inputs for the growth of MSMEs and adequate steps were being taken by the State to address those issues.

KASSIA President R.Hanumanthe Gowda highlighted number of key issues being faced by the industry in the state.

Jain assured that many of the issues raised by him, such as the property tax in Panchayat areas, issues concerning Gamanagatti Industrial area and development of industrial townships would be addressed and resolved very soon.
