IT and BT sector will be encouraged to go out of Bangalore and set up units in Belgaum and Hubli

Karnataka government proposes to set up an exclusive industrial park for small industries along the Bangalore-Pune national highway no.4 near Bangalore.


The government will acquire about 150 acres land for the proposed new industrial park, Murugesh Nirani, minister for major and medium industries said.
Addressing members of Karnataka Small Scale Industries Association (Kassia) after inaugurating the Kassia Udyog Bhavan here on Monday, he said it has been proposed to develop small industries park at a place where most of the basic raw materials are available.
He said the state is considering to promote cement units at Gulbarga and Chitradurga, food processing units at Bagalkote and Shimoga, automobile and steel units in Bellary.
Similarly, the IT and BT sector will be encouraged to go out of Bangalore and set up units in Belgaum and Hubli, he said adding that the government will facilitate all the relevant documents and clearances to small scale units at one location. This will be included in the new industrial policy of the state, he said.
Small Scale Industries minister Venkataramanappa, who released Kassia's industrial directory, said the government will encourage setting up of small scale units outside Bangalore and for such units provide all necessary amenities and facilities.
M C R Shetty, Kassia President demanded the state government to restore the interest subsidy scheme to the extent of 4 per cent in order to accelerate the process of modernization of the small industry sector in the state.
"The state government had earlier operated an interest subsidy scheme for modernization of small industries which was very useful. Although the Central government has introduced a credit linked capital subsidy scheme, it does not carry interest subsidy which is very much essential for modernisation," he said.

Confident Airlines charter Service to Belgaum Bellary Hubli

Confident Airlines gets license for non-scheduled operations


By Lakshmi Vishwanath Bangalore

Bangalore-based Confident Airlines has acquired the license for non-scheduled operations from the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA). It will now operate mainly from Jakkur Aerodrome and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) airport to various destinations in South India. The airline was given the approval by MoCA to operate from HAL airport as it falls under the general aviation category. The airline will operate only during the day as it does not have world-class pilots to handle operations during the night. It is in talks with several IT and manufacturing companies in Bangalore to utilise its charter operations but nothing has been finalised. Confident Airlines has already tied up with McML Electrical Systems which will utilise their charter operations. The airline is further exploring the possibility of a long term tie-up with McML for using their charter service twice a month.

Confident Airlines will currently focus on cities such as Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Bangalore and smaller cities such as Belgaum, Bellary, Hubli, etc. It will consider operations to other parts of India at a much later stage.
