Bengaluru, June 18 (KNN) Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy will today lay the foundation stone of “Kassia Centre of Excellence & Innovation”.
With CM Kumaraswamy, S.R.Srinivas, Minister for Small Scale Industries, Government of Karnataka and Senior Officials of Government of Karnataka will also participate at the event.
KASSIA – Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association is the apex body for MSMEs in Karnataka.
The event will take place at 3.30 p.m. at Kassia, Vijayanagar, Bangalore.
KASSIA will build a centre of Excellence and Innovation at Dobbspet.
General Secretary of the association TS Umashankar said the Centre will be set up on a 4.5 acre plot at the Dobbspet industrial cluster.
Facilities would include an international exhibition centre, a tool room, an international marketing centre and an R & D testing centre.
KASSIA vice-president Basavaraj S Javali said currently the nearest exhibition centre was Bengaluru International Exhibition Centre (BIEC).
“The upcoming centre would provide the facility at much cheaper rates. We want to charge higher amounts to other agencies who hold an exhibition and use the funds to subsidise exhibitions for MSMEs,” he said. (KNN Bureau)
