Bengaluru: Integrated Industrial Residential townships with all the basic amenities will come up in industrial areas in Karnataka in order to save man hour and avoid traffic congestion.

Coming out with the unique concept of “Walk-to-work” Large and Medium Industries Minister Murugesh R Nirani on Thursday held a meeting involving EV Ramana Reddy, Addl Chief secretary (commerce & industries), Gunjan Krishna, Commissioner, commerce & industries dept
and N Shivashankar, CEO, KIADB and decided to prepare a blueprint on residential townships in industrial areas that would come up in future.

“Residential townships will be constructed on KIADB land and other industrial areas so that workers, officials and other staff reside on the premises which will help them avoid commuting long distances and in turn save crucial man hours, increase productivity and prevent traffic congestion. Residential townships will be constructed on 10% to 15% of land reserved in industrial areas with all basic amenities such as schools, shopping malls, clinics, parks and recreation facilities,” Nirani said.

The Large & Medium Industries department is planning to develop 9,010 acres of land for industrial development in the coming days in Kolar, Ramanagara, Mandya, Tumakuru, Vijayapura and Haveri. Over 81,864 acres of land in 188 industrial areas have been acquired so far and allotted for industrial units across the state.

Participating in 44th annual general meeting of Bangalore Chamber of Industries & Commerce (BCIC) on Thursday evening, minister Nirani said he will soon write a mail to top industrialists and their associations to elicit their opinion to further smoothen ease-of-doing business in the state.

“I will also hold a meeting with top industrialists soon and discuss issues related to industrial development and attracting investments. Government will leave no stone unturned in maintaining Karnataka’s lead position in the industrial sector and investor-friendly atmosphere,” said Nirani in the meet attended by M R Jaishankar, Chairman and Managing Director, Brigade Enterprises Limited, Soumitra Bhattacharya, Managing Director, Bosch Limited & President, Bosch Group in India and TR Parasuraman, President, BCIC

Promising to give more fillip to the industrial sector, Nirani said Karnataka is a preferred destination for investors.

“Karnataka is an ideal destination for the investors and maintaining its lead position. We will ensure further progress with investor-friendly and business-friendly steps in the coming days.”
